I asked my seamstress about this and she said clean it after. I knew I was getting it hemmed and she said with the hem it would cut off any dirt at the bottom anyways, making it easier or less expensive to clean. I’m sure you may hear the opposite too cause I’ve seen this discussion on here before.

Always, always after!  That way the next person to touch it will only be you!
