Did you know that a large majority of dry cleaners commonly use perchloroethylene and stain removers composed of toxic products (1)?
These toxic substances are found in wastewater discharges and their use represents a 100% relative impact on the ozone layer. (2)
Dry cleaning is the historical process using the toxic solvent perchloroethylene. Because of its strong impact on the environment and on health, this hydrocarbon will be banned in all dry cleaners on January 1, 2022. (3)
Ecological cleaning is possible. Indeed, water cleaning, or aquanettoyage, uses water as a base with the addition of natural or biodegradable detergents: little toxic discharge and risk of pollution, especially on the ozone layer and discharges into aquatic environments.
