We'd love to show you how it works

Remove difficult stains

Sometimes you get uncommon stains that you need a refresher on. Maybe you've seen the stain hundreds of times, but want to make sure the cleaning process is the same for a rarely used fabric. 

Whatever it is, DLI has you covered with step-by-step stain removal instructions for the most frequently recurring stains in a drycleaning plant.

TABS in your pocket

Have you ever had a customer file a complaint on an issue that was the manufacturers fault, but had no way of explaining it to them?

TABS is the perfect solution to this problem. The TABS portion of the app allows you to show your customer why a garment had an issue, how it happened, what it looks like, and who is responsible. 

TABS is one of DLI's most popular series and now you can find them instantly on your favorite iOS device.
