Misconception #3: Dry Cleaning Means No Liquids Are Used In The Process.
No, dry cleaning uses fluids to remove soil and stains from fabrics. In fact, the term “dry cleaning” is misleading. It’s called dry cleaning because he fluid contains little or no water and does not penetrate the fibers as water does.
Among the advantages of dry cleaning is its ability to dissolve grease and oil in a way that water cannot. Natural fibers, such as wools, and silks, dry clean beautifully, but can shrink, distort, and lose color when washed in water. Synthetic fibers, such as polyester, also respond well to dry cleaning, while they can retain oily stains after washing at home. Dry cleaning helps to return garments to a “like-new” condition, using precautions to prevent shrinkage, loss of color, and fabric distortions.
The dry cleaning process begins with the pretreatment of stains such as coffee, wine, or ink, using special agents to safely remove those stains without damage to the fabric or color. The garments are then loaded into a machine resembling an oversized front-loading home washer. It’s mechanical action loosens embedded dirt. Throughout the cleaning process, the fluid is filtered or distilled to ensure its clarity.
