Why Lapels?

We offer the only two 100% Non-Toxic Environmentally Friendly Cleaning options in one convenient location

The GreenEarth® Cleaning process uses liquid silicone in place of petrochemicals. Essentially liquified sand, silicone is non-hazardous and non-toxic to the environment. When released to the environment, it safely breaks down into the three natural elements it is made from: sand (SiO2) and trace amounts of water and carbon dioxide. Which means it is safe for the air, water and soil.

GreenEarth® is safe for people too. If you wanted to, you could safely rub it on your skin. In fact you probably already do. Liquid silicone is the base ingredient in many everyday shampoos, conditioners and lotions.

Because clothes cleaned the GreenEarth® way aren’t bathed in perc or other petrochemical solvents, they come back fresh and clean without unpleasant “dry cleaning” odor. GreenEarth® is also very gentle on clothes. You can actually see and feel the difference it makes. Colors don’t fade and whites don’t gray or yellow the way they do in traditional dry cleaning, even after repeated cleaning. Everything feels better too. Fabrics are smooth and silky, and sweaters feel soft and supple again.

There’s A Scientific Reason Why Clothes Look And Feel Better With Greenearth.

Liquid silicone is chemically inert, meaning it doesn’t chemically react with fabric fibers. It just carries the detergent to your clothes and gently carries away the dirt and oil. It also is very light in weight and has a very low surface tension, allowing it to gently penetrate fabric fibers and rinse away dirt in a way that water or perc cannot. So it cleans without being abrasive or aggressive, leaching dyes or damaging trims. That’s why it is such a safe and effective green cleaner for even the most delicate garments–beads, delicate lace, silk, cashmere, you name it–with GreenEarth®, there’s nothing to worry about. And, unlike many other cleaning methods, GreenEarth® won’t cause shrinkage.

What is True Wetcleaning?

Wet cleaning is a non-toxic, environmentally safe alternative to dry cleaning.  It utilizes computer-controlled washing machines, biodegradable soaps and conditioners, and finishes the dry process by using special moisture sensitive dryers.

We say true because only a tiny fraction of Dry Cleaners are using real wetcleaning machinery. Most Dry Cleaners say they wet clean, but what they actually have is the same washing machine you have in your home.

Wetcleaning has shown to produce whiter whites, is easier to remove water based stains and performs better than “perc” for some items such as heavily soiled garments.
