Q. How does drycleaning work?

The process commonly called “dry” cleaning is actually wet. Perchloroethylene (perc) is considered a non-aqueous solvent because it contains very little water.

Your Cotty's cleaner will sort your garments by type and degree of soling and will determine if pre-treatment is required. The garments are put in the machine and the dry cleaning solvent removes dirt, stains and oils from the clothes.

Once the “cleaning cycle” is completed, the “extract cycle” removes any excess solvent from the clothes. The solvent evaporates while inside the sealed system. When the clothes are removed from the dry cleaning machine you can expect them to be clean and fresh.

Garments are then professionally finished and returned to you in like-new condition.
