But how does eco-friendly dry cleaning work? And what fabrics get the best benefits from them?
About 90% of dry cleaners use harmful petrochemicals such as Perchloroethylene (PERC) to treat fabrics. This manufactured chemical can be hazardous to both people and nature. That’s a sad fact since most dry cleaners use it daily and many dry cleaners and people can be exposed to it in the air. The most harmful effects will be towards the central nervous system. It can also contaminate drinking water and cause kidney and liver damage. Petrochemicals as a whole are a big no-no; remaining residue can smell unpleasant and even make people sick who are suffering from asthma and odor sensitivities.
What is GreenEarth Dry Cleaning?
At Pico Cleaners, we take great emphasis on using eco-friendly, green cleaning in our services. GreenEarth dry cleaning utilizes a liquid silicone as a non-toxic, environmentally safe, non-hazardous solution to freshen up your fabrics. We do away with PERC and other environmentally harmful and hazardous chemicals. This liquid silicone breaks down into the natural elements that it derives from: sand, water, and carbon dioxide. This makes it safe for the air, water, and soil. Another benefit is that it will gently penetrate fabric fibers, carry detergent to your clothes, and rinse dirt and oil away. It works wonders on almost any fabric materials including delicate garments such as silk, cashmere, lace, etc.
Eco-Friendly = Safe for You
The absolute best benefit of our eco-friendly service is that it’ll be safe for you. If you’re exposed or it gets on your skin, no harm will come. It’s also good that liquid silicone is, in fact, the main base ingredient for everyday shampoos, lotions, and conditioners. The effect of GreenEarth materials, as opposed to petrochemicals, is that your clothes will end fresh and clean with no awful, smelly odors. In addition, GreenEarth is very gentle on fabrics. Clothes will feel smoother and even silkier and colors won’t fade or change, even after cleaning repeatedly. So fresh and so clean!
