Eco-Friendly Dry Cleaners
Dry cleaning has all the time been an accepted practice of cleaning expensive clothes. The essential component in old-fashioned dry cleaning is pungent smelling chemical called tetra-chloro ethylene which is carcinogenic. It pollutes the environment as its structure is resilient to dissolving it when it gets dribbled or freed into the sewage structures in the populated areas. It is a big menace in the U.S.A. It affects the stratosphere of ozone layer and causes global warming. This chemical is a health hazard .The most knotty and challenging dry cleaning procedure is the use of chlorinated hydrocarbon contained in Perc which makes air toxic and contaminated.
The eco-scientists have found five eco-friendly alternatives to this outdated dry cleaning process. The eco-sensitivity of consumers have selected and elected the recent natural and organic solvents for dry cleaning treatments.
