Note A: According to consumer advocate groups and agencies, "LIFETIME WARRANTIES" are useless. Whose "LIFETIME" is meant? The term "LIFETIME "has no defined time period and usually ends up meaning NO WARRANTY.  A"50 YEAR" or even a 25 Year warranty covers and protects you and your family more completely than a "Lifetime" warranty. 

Note B: A "REFUND" is defined as the price you paid for the gown cleaning service only - it does not mean the value of your gown! "REPLACEMENT VALUE" coverage means the original cost of the gown, plus the increased value, based upon subsequent inflation rates.

Note C: Warranties warning "DO NOT BREAK THE SEAL" (or similar wording) are designed to protect the drycleaner or other service-provider, not you! A genuine warranty will allow you the right to INSPECT YOUR GOWN AT ANY TIME YOU WISH in order to see that it was done properly and remains undamaged through the years.

Note D: "ZURCION" IS NOT A SUBSTANCE OR A PROCESS.  It is a NAME ONLY that was created by a drycleaner in the state of New York (and it's aliases).  In 1998, several Zurcion care-providers were cited and fined by thge FTC for deceptive practices and false advertising. There is no such thing!
