Is Dry Cleaning Safe?

Resolve to Go Green in your dry cleaning this year. You'll avoid the toxic solvent perchloroethylene (or "perc"), known to cause a host of health problems and labeled a probable human carcinogen. Plus, think of all of the money you will save. You can hand wash many items labeled "Dry Clean Only"-wool, silk and rayon. For items you just cannot handle at home, find a "wet cleaner" or CO2 dry cleaner in your area by clicking on the title above.
