Pressto Dry Cleaning and Wet Cleaning Service Differences Label Indicator

Dry Cleaning vs Laundry

Contrary to what you may think, dry cleaning does not refer to a dry method of cleaning clothes. Instead, it refers to a form of cleaning that uses a liquid​ solvent other than water to clean; hence why it is called “dry cleaning”.

The clothes are basically soaked in the solvent and cleaned without the use of water. Usually, this is done professionally by laundromats, where they commonly use perchloroethylene, or PERC,- the main solution used for dry cleaned clothes.

So why bother with using dry cleaning to clean? Well, the dry cleaning process is particularly useful when it comes to cleaning and the need to remove stains in garments or clothing with delicate fabrics. These garments cannot withstand the wet tumble and roughness that comes with a washing machine or dryer. Furthermore, dry cleaning protects the original shape and colour of the garments.

Laundry cleaning is also know as wet cleaning. Clothes are washed with water, and wet cleaning is perhaps a little bit more familiar; it is essentially professional cleaning that avoids the use of chemical solvents. The entire process is somewhat similar to how you would do laundry at home; the true difference lies in the way they handle and professionally clean your clothes, especially delicate ones that are unable to withstand a washing machine.

Compared to dry cleaning, they are also more environmentally friendly, thanks to the sensitive machinery and specialized detergents that are more biodegradable.
