About Dry Cleaning

Dry cleaning means any cleaning process that does not use water. Most laundromats require the use of water and tumbling in order to clean clothes. For higher quality clothes, this can cause permanent damage, including shrinking and tearing.

The History of Dry Cleaning

The ancient Romans were the first to develop a dry cleaning method, using a chemical called ammonium, which they derived from urine, and a type of clay called Fuller’s Earth. They used this method to clean their woolen togas. The urine was collected from farm animals or from special latrines in public restrooms,
and the urine-collecting industry was so profitable that a special tax was declared on it.

Fortunately we have since developed higher tech chemicals to use for dry cleaning purposes. In the 19th century, petroleum-based dry cleaning agents were developed. These were used to dissolve stains on clothes, but unfortunately lead to many destructive fires. A new solution was needed.

After World War I, a new chlorine-based solution was developed, called perchloroethylene, or “perc” for short. This solvent can be filtered and re-used, and a variety of technological systems are used to ensure the environment is protected from any pollution. Other types of solvents, including hydrocarbon-based solvents, are also commonly used in the cleaning process. Modern cleaning machines ensure the environment is protected, and are designed to get the maximum efficiency of use out of the solvent.

Dry Cleaning Machines

Dry cleaning machines are a sort of blend between a regular clothes washer and a clothes dryer. They rotate the clothing in a gentle manner, at a temperature around 85 degrees. The garments must be checked for any stray items such as plastic pens, and their buttons and other parts are examined to prepare them for the dry cleaning process. The dry cleaning machine applies the cleaning solution in a carefully controlled manner, and then gently applies warm air to the garments to evaporate the remaining solvent.

Can You Dry Clean at Home?

There are a few dry cleaning products available for at-home dry cleaning. These can work for the simplest of stains. They do not follow all of the steps of a commercial dry cleaning process, but do work for some types of garments.

Pure Green Service

Fortunately you do not need to know the process that goes into dry cleaning. At Pure Green Dry Cleaning, we take care of all of that for you, from the pick-up, all the way until your clothes are returned. We can dry clean just about any type of garment, and will provide the customized care that keeps our customers loyal
and happy. Let us know how we can help you with your dry cleaning needs.

Dry Clean Your Winter Coat Before You Need It

Now that summer has just about wrapped up, people are starting to think ahead to fall and winter. First comes finding the perfect costume for Halloween, and then it will be time to plan for the best Thanksgiving dinner yet. Before you know it, Christmas will be here and we will be right in the throes of winter.

Dry Clean Your Coat - Nashville TN - Pure Green Dry CleaningGetting caught up in the whirlwind of the changing seasons and the marathon of family holidays, it can be easy to forget about the winter jacket stuffed into the back of the closet. Last spring, you packed it away with a genuine promise to clean it before you ever think about wearing it again. Suddenly, winter is upon you, temperatures have started dropping below freezing, and your coat is still dirty. Worse yet, your favorite dry cleaner is too busy to get your coat washed right away because everyone else who forgot to wash their coats have decided to drop their winter wear off too.

In order to avoid the hassle and the cold days that you refuse to wear a dirty jacket, make plans now to dry clean your winter coat. Once you have it cleaned, it will look as good as new, and you can tuck it safely away in the closet where it will hang ready for the first hint of cold, winter weather.

No matter what your jacket is made of or how delicate the decorations are, dry cleaning it will guarantee a bright, fresh jacket with all the embellishments safely intact. Dry cleaning uses special organic solvents to wash your clothing. It does not use water, which coined the term “dry” cleaning.
