What is dry cleaning?


We all have our favourite dresses or suits, which we don’t want to lose.

We cannot wash all our clothes with water along a mixture of detergent and conditioners at home.

Before we choose to dry-clean or wet-clean our clothes, we should familiarise ourselves with its fabric, whether it is made of cotton, synthetic or silk etc thread.

This is critical to minimise the possible adverse impact that a cleaning method can have on our clothes.


We must check care label on our clothes for washing instructions and after that we should select best method of washing them.

Dry cleaning is a method of cleaning clothes with chemical solvent perchloroethylene (PERC).

Since, water is not involved in the process, we call it dry cleaning. This chemical solvent is harmful for our health and environment.

This cannot be handled by everyone. Only a professional can legally have allowed to use this solvent.

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.
