What exactly is drycleaning?
Dry cleaning is the use of solvents to remove soil and stains from fabric. It is called “dry cleaning” because the solvents contain little or no water and do not penetrate the fibres as water does. Dry cleaning solvent is not harmful to any fabric, and is often the only safe method for cleaning many types of garments.
Can drycleaning damage clothes?
No, on the contrary, dry cleaning prolongs the life of your clothing because it is being treated according to exact fabric specifications.
