A really good cleaner IS a treasure. Our favorite locally closed a few
years ago - the owner retired. :(
The one we now use uses a carbon dioxide (CO2) process, rather than the
traditional solvents. While I haven't tried anything beaded or sequined
(yet), when I asked, they said that since it was a no-heat process without
petroleum solvents, that they have had no problems so far, with various
prom and wedding dresses they have cleaned. I do know that it doesn't
leave the chemical odor that the solvents always did.
