Drycleaning is the use of solvents to eliminate soil, as well as, stains from fabric. This is called “drycleaning” due to the fact that the solvents consist of little or no water and do not penetrate the fibers as water does. Drycleaning solvent is not harmful to any material, and drycleaning is the only safe method for cleaning many types of garments.
Natural fibers such as wools and silks will certainly shrink and also perhaps lose their color when washed in water, but will dryclean beautifully. Cottons and linens, unless they are preshrunk in manufacture, will also shrink in home laundering. Drycleaning is particularly effective in eliminating greasy, oily stains from synthetic fibers, which have an affinity for oils.
