8 Things Your Dry-Cleaner Won’t Tell You

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.
