How Dry Cleaning Works


Subject:
Home & Housing , Cleaning and Organization

Description:
Introduction to this fabric-cleaning process. "The cleaning fluid that is used is a liquid, and all garments are immersed and cleaned in a liquid solvent -- the fact that there is no water is why the process is called 'dry.'" Includes a history of the process (that first used gasoline and kerosene and now often uses perchlorethylene), and a description of the procedure. From How Stuff Works.
