The Dry Cleaning Industry is deceptively Greenwashing their use of solvents and their disposal of hazardous waste by marketing their companies as Green, eco friendly and organic.
Dry Cleaning customers have the right to know if their garments are being cleaned in solvents that produce hazardous waste.
We need legislation to require all Garment Cleaners to post, at the counter, all solvents they use and the hazardous waste they produce.

Unlike solvents, our professional Wet Cleaning System eliminates shrinkage, leaves no odor, no residue and no hazardous waste. All cleaning products are biodegradable and approved by the EPA.
The Wet Cleaning Advantage
Wet Cleaning is the safest process to clean your clothes. Unlike the new “Green” solvent dry cleaning systems, there is no odor, solvent residue, or toxic waste.
Compared to Solvent Dry Cleaning
Dry cleaners RE-USE the same solvent on all garments.
It is replaced as it evaporates.
Mastercraft Wet Cleaning Removes the Residue Dry Cleaning leaves behind.
- The five garments shown below were taken to a local dry cleaner to be dry cleaned in one of their new alternative “Green” solvents.
- We then immersed each garment, one at a time, in fresh, clear water and a small amount of our clear cleaning solution.
- The residue left in the garments is shown below.
