Holiday Cleaners uses GreenEarth
for most garment and household cleaning. GreenEarth
is a silicone based solvent that breaks down into sand, CO2, and water. It provides safe, gentle cleaning.
For items that require a more aggressive solvent, we use DrySolv
. It is a nonchlorinated solvent that breaks down in the atmosphere in 3 weeks compared to months for Perc. Since it is nonchlorinated, it is not an ozone depleting chemical. DrySolv is an excellent degreaser but is not as good for items with delicate trim.
We also wet clean when it is appropriate. Good old fashioned hand washing is a basic form of wet cleaning. Specialized detergents and processes are used to protect sensitive fabrics and trim.
Our laundered shirts are machine pressed and then hand finished. Buttons are replaced at no cost to you.
