Eco Dry Cleaners

🌸👗 Are you looking for a safer, non-toxic, hypoallergenic Dry Cleaner? 🍃 Great! 🌸
If your cleaner claims to be "green", "organic" or "eco-friendly" check their methods, they could be using anything but safe products. When you are taking your clothes to the dry cleaners, check that they are not using the methods with toxic solvents called Perchloroethylene, simply called PERC or GreenEarth method!


🚫 PERC poses health risks to humans, it threatens the environment, and pollutes the water, listed under California's Proposition 65, it will be banned by 2023 in California, but until then ask your dry cleaner which products they use!
🚫 GreenEarth method (despite the misleading name) is not environmentally friendly! GreenEarth uses a silicone-based solvent (siloxane or D-5). According to a study, it increased the risk of uterine cancer in female rats. This led the EPA to consider this method may be carcinogenic. Check here 

🚫 SOLVONK4: it is a new dry cleaning method that has been promoted as eco-friendly. It is not safe according to this study

SolvonK4 contains several toxic chemicals: butylal, the main ingredient in SolvonK4, Formaldehyde, and butanol. *NIOSH considers formaldehyde to be a potential occupational human carcinogen. These chemicals can be produced by SolvonK4. This solvent may react with water in the presence of heat and acid to release formaldehyde and butanol. The long-term human health effects of SolvonK4 are unknown.

🚫Stoddard solvent: Toxic and polluting! Learn more here  It comes from the refining of crude oil. If you use products that contain Stoddard solvent and do not wear protective clothing, you may be exposed if it gets on your skin. You might be exposed to Stoddard solvent near a hazardous waste site by breathing it in the air. When you breathe in Stoddard solvent, it can quickly enter your bloodstream. The chemical components that makeup Stoddard solvent will then be absorbed by different tissues in your body. It may also enter the brain, and a large portion may be stored in body fat. 

🚫DF-2000: considered to be hazardousIt is a petroleum-derived made by Exxon-Mobil. The EPA lists DF-2000 as a neurotoxin and skin and eye irritant for workers; and its use can contribute to smog and global warming, just like Stoddard solvent. 

  • Repeated exposure may cause skin dryness or cracking.  If swallowed, may be aspirated and cause lung damage; may be irritating to the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs.

  • If inhaled, it can cause respiratory irritation, dizziness, nausea, or unconsciousness.

  • Vapour/aerosol concentrations above recommended exposure levels are irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract, may cause headaches, dizziness, anesthesia, drowsiness, unconsciousness, and other central nervous system effects including death


🍃 The safest dry cleaning methods, according to UCLA environmental studies, are:
"Wet Cleaning" method used a computer-controlled washer and dryer. It cleans gently and is free of VOCs. It eliminates health and safety risks. The cost is also lower. The issue here is the water resource 
"Liquid carbon dioxide" (CO2) method recaptures the CO2 that's already a byproduct of several manufacturers and is recycled into a liquid form. It is the safest, non-toxic, non-flammable, and eco-friendly. CO2 is considered the most eco-friendly option available for a dry cleaner. And the only dry cleaners method in the USA approved by FDA

This method requires sophisticated and expensive machines and there only a few dry cleaners to offer this method in the entire Country.

According to the EPA blog: 

EPA has classified perc as a toxic air pollutant. Generally, it escapes into the outdoor air through open windows, vents, and air-conditioning systems. Once outdoors, perc can remain in the atmosphere for several weeks. Far worse, if the chemical enters the ground, it can contaminate both the soil we use to grow our food and our water table. This chemical is then stored in our body fat for an indefinite amount of time.

According to a Chemical Fact Sheet prepared by the EPA’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics, exposure to perc can occur when people use products containing perc; spend time in dry cleaners that use perc; live above or adjacent to these dry cleaning facilities; or bring dry-cleaned garments into their home.

Have you ever thought about what solvents dry cleaners use?
The majority use a highly polluting, carcinogenic solvent called PERC or perchloroethylene. The EPA has classified PERC as a toxic air pollutant: “If the chemical enters the ground, it can contaminate both the soil we use to grow our food and our water table. This chemical is then stored in our body fat for an indefinite amount of time.” According to the EPA, “...exposure to PERC can occur when people use products containing PERC; spend time in dry cleaners that use PERC; live above or adjacent to these dry cleaning facilities; or bring dry-cleaned garments into their home.” California will not permit this highly polluting and carcinogenic method to continue and has demanded that dry cleaners come up with safer, eco-friendly alternatives by 2023.
Since only California has banned it, for now, you will need to ask your dry cleaner which solvent they use!! Many dry cleaners claim to be “green” when they are not, AKA greenwashing. They proudly will mention methods such as GreenEarth, considered better than #PERC, but still potentially carcinogenic, according to studies. SolvonK4 method, has butylal, a classified skin irritant by the European Chemical Agency. The hydrocarbon method also is considered not green at all.
It’s why it is UP TO US to look after our own health and the safety of our community, and find safer alternatives and here they are:
♻️Wet cleaning method. Safe, but produces wastewater. ♻️The CO2 method is the most eco-friendly. A non-flammable, non-toxic gas that occurs naturally in the environment.
My suggestion is to wash as much as you can at home and have garments ironed professionally if you need to. Send your dry-clean-only garments to approved dry cleaners, like mine!

It is the only FDA-approved dry cleaners in California, and the USA. Choose by celebrities and museums, who care about their safety, preservation, and the environment.
By asking a simple question to our dry cleaners, we can then decide to get our clothes cleaned somewhere else that helps assure safety and makes a bigger impact in our home and on the environment!

"As regulation of PCE dry cleaning intensified in the 1990s, so did interest in the development of alternatives to PCE, including reformulated petroleum solvents, silicone-based solvents, liquid carbon dioxide (CO2), and water-based alternatives. While it was clear that some alternatives (water-based professional wet cleaning and CO2) appeared to be relatively benign, other alternatives (petroleum and silicone) pose their own set of environmental and occupational problems. Petroleum dry clean emissions are classified as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are both smog-forming and are classified as greenhouse gas. The silicone-based dry cleaning solvent (decamethylpentacyclosiloxane) has been identified as a potential carcinogen. In addition, both petroleum and silicone-based solvents are combustible and produce a substantial amount of hazardous waste."

In 2007, the California Air Resources Board adopted the Airborne Toxic Control Measure to phase out dry cleaners' use of perchloroethylene, or perc, by 2023.

California declared perchloroethylene a toxic chemical in 1991. State health officials told the air board Thursday that it can cause esophageal cancer, lymphoma, cervical and bladder cancer.

In 1991, the Air Resources Board (the Board or ARB) identified Perchoroethylene (Perc) as a toxic air contaminant (TAC) under California's Toxic Air Contaminant Identification and Control Program (Health and Safety Code section 39650 et. seq.).
