Generation Tux’s Cleaning Process


In the wake of recent events, we would like to share infor­ma­tion about our clean­ing process, and the care that goes into your suit or tux rental.

No Shortcuts

Gen­er­a­tion Tux employs a team of clean­ing pro­fes­sion­als in Louisville, KY, led by over 35 years of expe­ri­ence. Using state of the art com­mer­cial grade clean­ing equip­ment, each gar­ment is tak­en through a rig­or­ous clean­ing process, ensur­ing your suit or tuxe­do is per­fect, and clean, for your big day. Upon receipt of every return, each item is man­u­al­ly inspect­ed and placed into a spe­cif­ic clean­ing process that is ded­i­cat­ed to its mate­r­i­al fibers. We take the time, 60 min­utes to be exact, to make sure each suit is cleaned and dis­in­fect­ed appro­pri­ate­ly.

Our Cleaning Process includes:

  • Recy­cling of all mate­ri­als relat­ed to pack­ag­ing
  • Inspec­tion by hand for each returned item
  • Cat­e­go­riza­tion of each item for the ded­i­cat­ed clean­ing process
    • Wool is safe­ly dry cleaned using Green Earth, the safest dry clean­ing solu­tions avail­able
    • Cot­ton items are steam cleaned at 350 degrees
    • Shoes are dis­in­fect­ed and hand-pol­ished with a microfiber cloth
  • Items are placed in plas­tic before stor­age
  • All clean­ing solu­tions are safe­ly and pro­fes­sion­al­ly dis­posed of 


At Gen­er­a­tion Tux, we are com­mit­ted to find­ing bet­ter and CLEANER ways of tak­ing care of our gar­ments that ben­e­fit the safe­ty of cus­tomers, and the safe­ty of our envi­ron­ment as well.
