How dry cleaning works?


There are three basic needs of life, i.e., food, clothes and house. Clothes are integral part of our life. Our clothing depicts our look and thinking.

For keep looking good, we need proper maintenance of our clothes. We all should take great care of favourite dresses and suits, which we want to wear again and again.

We cannot wash all our clothes with water along a mixture of detergent and conditioners at home. For those clothes we need dry cleaning.

Dry cleaning reduces the chances of discoloration, shrinkage and distortion of the fabric. It effectively removes grease and tough oil stains, protects the texture and increase the lifespan of clothes.


Although most of our garments have care labels, each one of us often makes common mistakes of washing dry cleanable clothes at home using wrong detergent or temperature settings only to regret later.

Dry is a misleading term, it is not actually dry. It also involves the use of liquid solvent but its not water. These solvents can be handled by professionals only.

Dry cleaning involves use of chemical cleaning liquid, perchloroethylene (PERC). The clothes are immersed in perchloroethylene and washed in this solvent.

Since water is not involved in this process, we call it dry.

The solvent takes all dirt and greasy substance out from the clothes.
