Sail Cleaning Anyone?

Hi All,

The water test went very well yesterday on the Allmand 31, however the sails are just filthy... embarrasingly! Kept their shape well, threads are nice and tight, material isn't brittle, passed the awl poke test... they're just plain dirty! I have 2 mains and a 130 and 150 jib, so I can take 2 to get cleaned without getting stuck at the dock with no sails for any period of time.

Would like to hear from folks who have taken their sales to a loft for cleaning, what you paid and how satisefied you were. I have nowhere to lay out a sail and try to do it myself.
