   Safer Alternatives to Toxic Dry Cleaning
 

The most widely used chemical in traditional dry cleaning, perchlorethylene (perc), causes cancer in lab animals, and is a likely human carcinogen that impacts brain, liver, and kidney function, according to the EPA. Needless to say perc isn’t good for the environment, either. About Safer Alternatives to Toxic Dry Cleaning And yet 85 percent of American dry cleaners use perc.

 

For items that must be dry cleaned, you can start going to a so-called organic or eco-friendly dry steam cleaner. There, it’s crucial to ask questions about what is used instead of perc. Many cleaners use chemicals that aren’t much better than perc, including petroleum-based solvents called hydrocarbons. A better option is to find a “wet” cleaner that uses water and biodegradable detergents. There are also C02 cleaners, which are a good option. Unfortunately these are few and far between as the equipment needed to C02 clean is not cheap.


You can, of course, purchase clothing made of materials that don’t need to be dry cleaned. Keep in mind that wool is such a good, warm material that tends to be free of flame retardants and other finishing chemicals that synthetics might contain. It’s worth a try washing it first.

 

You can replace your conventional dry cleaner in two ways.
Ditch the dry cleaners entirely and wash your clothes (in plant-based eco- and kid-friendly detergent). As it turns out much of what is labeled “dry clean only” can be washed in cold water and air-dried. Try it!  Learn more here: What You Should (And Shouldn’t Dry Clean)

 

The fluid remains in the clothing after it is cleaned. Perc is a volatile organic compound that turns into vapors at room temperature—the primary route of exposure for most people. If you take the plastic off your cleaned items and hang them outside, the perc residue can air out some. But most of us put the steam mops plastic-enshrouded “clean” clothes in our bedroom closets, where the perc evaporates into the air we breathe. Chances are you aren’t dry cleaning your baby’s clothes. But you might be dry cleaning their blankets or the curtains in their room. And you might be holding them while wearing a dry cleaned shirt they then suck on. Neither is a good idea.
