You may not know that nearly all dry cleaners use a solvent known as perchloroethylene (perc) in the process of cleaning your clothes.
What everyone should know is that perc is toxic and contaminates the air we breathe, it is also a hazardous classified substance that is likely to cause cancer, and one of the top four dangerous contaminants found in our drinking water.
Perc can enter your body simply through inhalation or touch. More obvious and immediate effects of this hazardous chemical are skin irritation, watering eyes or tickly nose and throat.
It can also have effect your brain, with similar symptoms to being drunk, causing dizziness, headaches, vomiting, and loss of balance.
Dry Green does not use any perchloroethylene in our dry cleaning process, only natural cleaning solvent made from renewable resources.
