You might be curious about Wet Cleaning and Dry Cleaning? At Green Organic we use a safe and efficient cleaning approach that is better for you and the environment. Wet cleaning is proven to be more environmentally friendly.  The are a few important differences between wet cleaning and dry cleaning

With wet cleaning, cleaners can customize the wet cleaning process for each item of clothing, each piece can be agitated very gently or dried at a very specific temperature. Water and detergent are added to a specially made, computer-controlled machine along with the garments.

The main difference between wet cleaning and dry cleaning is that wet cleaning uses water and dry cleaning does not. Dry cleaned items can also seem stiffer because of some of the hard solvents used.

Wet cleaning turns out to be a safer alternative because it avoids the use of chemical solvents, the most common of which is tetrachloroethylene (commonly called perchloroethylene or “perc”). It is not just the use of water that makes wet cleaning the safest method for cleaning clothes. Computer-controlled wet cleaning machines, special dryers, safe detergents and non-toxic spot removers are what make wet cleaning an environmentally sound method. 

Wet cleaning machines have special controls that allow them to safely and efficiently clean a wide variety of garments in water. Workers experience a safer work environment because the detergents and spot removers that are used are made of ingredients that are safer for both them and the environment.  Also, wet cleaning is as safe and effective at removing soils, stains and odors as dry cleaning solvents. 

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, wet cleaning is better for the environment. It does not use hazardous chemicals, and it does not produce hazardous waste and it does not cause air pollution. It also mitigates the potential for water and soil contamination. The detergents used in wet cleaner are milder than most home laundry detergents and the waste that does go down the drain is easily handled by local town waste management systems.
