What is the difference between wet and dry cleaning?

Cleaning. This is something we all need in our everyday lives. But why does some item specifically require dry cleaning and what is the differene between wet and dry cleaning?

Wet Cleaning

This idea is simple: immersing your fabric in water, detergents, and conditioner, and gently tumbling it in a washing machine to make your it clean. The essential thing to wet cleaning is the knowlege of different types of fabric and how to treat them. Wet cleaning is considered evironmentally friendly because it does not use hazardous chemicals, or produce hazardous waste.

This is used in everyday laundry washing. However, what is different is that the detergents and conditioners used are specialised, milder and gentler than the laundry home detergents.

Dry Cleaning

What it is, is that it’s not wet, meaning that it does not use water. So how does it clean? It cleans using chemicals solvents to remove your stains and grease from the fabric. This is a method used for delicate fabrics that cannot withstand the rough tumbling of the washing machine.
