[Removing the plastic wrapping after dry cleaning is crucial]
The main purpose for using the plastic wrapping after dry cleaning is for protection during transportation. If it is not removed, the plastic bag itself overtime can trap in moisture, if left in place for extended periods may cause mildew growth which is a real threat to the integrity of the clothing's fibres and colours.
