Drycleaning uses fluids to remove soils and stains from fabrics. In fact, the term “drycleaning” is misleading. It's called drycleaning because the fluid contains little or no water and does not penetrate the fibers as water does. Among the advantages of drycleaning is its ability to dissolve grease and oils in a way that water cannot. Natural fibers such as wools and silks dryclean beautifully, but can shrink, distort, and lose color when washed in water. Synthetic fibers like polyester also respond well to drycleaning, whereas, they can retain oily stains after washing. Drycleaning prolongs the life of your garments and helps to return them to a “like-new” condition using precautions to prevent shrinkage, loss of color, and change of texture or finish.
The drycleaning process begins with the pretreatment of spots and stains using special cleaning agents. The garments are then loaded into a machine resembling an oversized front-loading home washer. Throughout the cleaning process the fluid is filtered or distilled to ensure its clarity.
