About Wet Cleaning

Wet cleaning (aka green cleaning) is the safest method in garment cleaning, utilizing gentle washing machine, biodegradable soaps and conditioners, and various types of pressing and re-shaping equipments that may be specialized for many different fabric and fiber types. The most important aspect of successful wet cleaning is experience and knowledge of different types of fabrics and proper ways to finish garments by operators.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), wet cleaning is the safest professional method of garment cleaning. It does not use hazardous chemical, it does not generate hazardous waste, nor create air pollution and reduced potential for water and soil contamination. The specialized detergents and conditioner used in the wet clean process are milder than home laundry products. All the products are disposed of down the drain and easily handled by the local waste water treatment facility.

A few fabrics — notably rayon and acetate — are invariably labeled "dry clean only" but may not be safe to wet clean. They are definitely not safe to wash. Some such garments are intended to be worn only once.

You will also notice with Wet Cleaning that there is no odour left behind from conventional dry cleaning chemicals.
