What is Dry-cleaning?
Dry cleaning is any cleaning process for clothing and textiles using chemical solvent other than water. Despite its name, dry cleaning is not a “dry” process, clothes are soaked in a liquid solvent.
Most dangerous chemical
Dry cleaner uses dangerous chemical solvents that are harmful to people and the environment. Most cleaners use Perchloroethylene, also known as Tetrachloroethylene, PCE, or PERC. It is classified to be a human carcinogen, according to the U.S. National Toxicology Program, Occupational Safety and Human Safety agency.Read More

1. Organic Dry Cleaning Isn’t Really “GREEN”
The only true organic cleaning process is using water and it’s known as Wet-Cleaning. Most cleaners advertise “green” and “organic” but they use Hydrocarbon, an “organic” substance that comes from the earth. However, hydrocarbon is still considered toxic and can do harm just as much as Perc. Perc is a common and toxic chemical solvent used in the dry-cleaning industry.
2. Women’s Garments May Get Charged Slightly More.
I remember a woman calling us and stressing how we were sexist for charging more for her clothes than men’s clothing. The truth is women’s clothing is more delicate and most items need to be hand ironed with extra care.
3. Your Local Dry Cleaner Isn’t Really The One Cleaning Your Clothes.
Most likely your clothes are being sent out to a central plant which is why some clothes go missing or misplaced. The next time you visit your local dry cleaner ask them if they are a “dry” or “package” store. Dry stores are just a drop-off location to transport garment to the central cleaning plant. Package stores own their own equipment and do the cleaning on-site, or at their sister site.Read More
Edward L. Amaral, Jr and his wife, Quinn Nguyen, both residents of the North End Waterfront, created a new green and organic wet cleaner, which is similar to a dry cleaner, except they use non-toxic chemicals that are eco-friendly, leave a fresh clean scent, and is kind to sensitive skin. Quinn’s family has had a very successful wet cleaning facility in Medford, MA since 1994.
After helping to lead the fight to “Save the North End Waterfront” from developers, Amaral wanted to start a business that is beneficial to the residents here while at the same time, practice what he preached when he and his fellow committee members stopped developers from building behind Lewis Wharf thereby preserving the environment and keeping our Waterfront visible and free from obstruction and unsafe and unwanted traffic.
