What Is Green Dry Cleaning?
Green dry cleaning refers to any alternative dry cleaning method that does not involve the use of perc. One method is wet cleaning which is a more gentle version of home laundering. Three other green cleaning methods follow the traditional solvent model but use carbon dioxide, hydrocarbon or silicon-based cleaners instead of perc.
However, of the four types of alternative cleaning offered in the United States, only two are considered truly safe for the environment and consumers. They are wet cleaning and liquid carbon dioxide cleaning. If you are looking for the most environmentally sound type of cleaning, ask your dry cleaner which of the methods is used in their cleaning process.
