How Dry Cleaning Works

Like a lot of Kirkland dry cleaners, we receive more than a few questions about how dry cleaning actually works. The process takes place in a machine similar to a home washer/dryer combo unit, but large enough to hold dozens of pounds of clothes.

Once the clothes have been loaded, the machine is filled with a solvent and heated to a relatively low temperature, and then the machine tumbles to agitate the clothes. If any spots remain afterward, a technician will carefully perform spot-cleaning to remove the more stubborn stains.

At US Cleaners, a green dry cleaner in Kirkland, the only solvents used are non-toxic silicone-based products from GreenEarth. This is not only better for people and the planet than traditional perchloroethylene, but easier on fabrics, as well!
