Wet Cleaning vs Dry Cleaning

Things should keep in mind when washing clothes: what the colour of the clothes are, and what material they are made out of. Not all fabrics can handle the same amount of water pressure or level of tumbling. Separate light and dark-coloured clothes. When you wash your clothes, especially new clothes, some of the dye used on the fabric will run out of the clothes. Any clothes that are white, cream, or a light, pale pastel colour, should go in the ‘whites’ pile, while all other coloured clothes should go in the ‘dark’ pile. If you don’t separate, your new bright blue shirt might dye all of your white clothes blue. Separate your clothes based on the fabrics they are made out of. Some fabrics, like denim or thick cloth, need to be washed on a heavier wash cycle than your silky lingerie. You should separate your clothes by the sort of wash cycle their fabrics are meant to be washed in. And also choose the cleaning method depends on your cloth material!! Here, we give a brief analysis of Dry Cleaning vs Wet Cleaning methods!!


Process of Dry Cleaning:


Dry cleaning uses no water but relies on the use of toxic chemical liquid solvents like Perchloroethylene or Petroleums. These chemicals are so toxic they require government-regulated waste management programs to dispose of them. Not only are the chemicals terrible for the environment, but the process that attempts to remove the chemicals from your clothing is also very harsh on the garments themselves, using very high-heat. That’s why so many people air-out their dry cleaning when they get it home. Dry cleaning is only used to remove dry-side stains, non-water soluble stains, such as grease and oil from clothing and is ineffective against water-soluble stains like body odour, food, etc.


Process of Wet Cleaning:


Wet cleaning is a process using no harsh chemicals or solvents, instead of using cleaning products that are safe enough to drink. The process uses a minimal amount of water, in a temperature-controlled environment produced using specially calibrated machines. Not to be confused with laundry, wet cleaning is a perfect alternative for your ‘dry-clean only’ garments to the harsh processes of dry cleaning. The wet cleaning process offers far superior cleaning results than dry cleaning, without the impact of harsh chemical solvents. Whites are whiter and the colours are brighter. Wet cleaners are part of a growing movement within the garment care industry to provide the customer with a truly hygienic clean and like-new finish, without the use of harsh chemical solvents.


Difference between Wet and Dry Cleaning?


The main difference between these two cleaning processes is that wet cleaning is done with water while dry cleaning without water. While dry cleaning has a more efficient rate of spot removal, wet cleaning preserves the colour of fabrics longer. Some solvents used in the process of dry cleaning may be harsh and make the clothes rigid. However, at Monteleone, you will only find eco-friendly solvents, that are biodegradable and can be used even for people with sensitive skins. In the same time, detergents and conditioners we are using in the process of wet cleaning are eco-friendly. We are an environmental-friendly company that loves nature and the desire to protect it can be noticed in both our cleaning methods. Even if the basis of the processes are different, both of them are safe and specially developed for the environment and people's health. 


Then, What is Laundry?


Laundry, on the other hand, uses lots of water and common detergents, combined with the harsh mechanical action of a washing machine, to clean clothing. It’s for washable items, usually made of kinds of cotton and polyesters, and casual wear that requires minimal finishing. This can be done successfully at home with a traditional washer/dryer. Laundry is NOT for your non-washable or dry clean only items, such as wools, silks, rayons, cashmere etc., and can cause these items to shrink, pill and fade while providing a far less desirable finish.


Finally, we conclude with the fact that every clothes have their own characteristic nature. So, choose washing methods wisely. Challenge has wide varieties of washing soaps and detergent use all the products and see the massive difference in your clothes!!
