Surprisingly to some, no water is used in the process of drycleaning! Garments are cleaned in
a mixture of Perchloroethylene (commonly known as "perc"), soap, and sizing.
The lack of water is why clothes do not shrink during this process as it is
the water that causes shrinkage!
The entire process from start to finish is done in one machine (thus, no
transferrance of wet clothes). After the clothes have been cleaned and dried,
they are removed for pressing. Pressing is important as it activates the sizing
to give garments that "new look, new feel"! The clothes are then bagged and put
on the turnstile for pickup.
