At Clevergreen, we use a cleaning process that is a complete paradigm shift in cleaning technology. Green Earth, our chosen solvent cleans with pure liquid silicone. In essence, liquified sand. The same safe natural sand the Earth has been creating for over six billion years. It’s 100% odor free, non-allergenic and non-irritating. We use less than one gallon of Green Earth in vapor form to clean 40 lbs. of clothing and the garments are never immersed in the solvent. This is dry cleaning in its true sense of the word.
The resulting process is much gentler than normal dry cleaning methods which wash the clothing in Perc or other solvents. Our green approach can even be used to clean beaded and sequined garments. Given that the clothing never gets wet, there is no need for equipment with large motors to spin out the excess solvent which translates into less energy consumption. In addition, the drying cycle which also reclaims the solvent uses less energy.
