As ecologically mindful consumers, it is often difficult to avoid over-consumption of clothing influenced by fast fashion, conscientiously take care of our outfits, while limiting the negative environmental effects of dry cleaning. Fortunately, in recent years, the development of ecologically friendly cleaners has turned the dry cleaning market upside down. Finally, we have a green solution to maintain an impeccable style without endangering the environment.
When Home Solutions Are Not Enough
Tempting fate happens all too frequently when wearing a favourite white shirt while digging into a plate of spaghetti. As Murphy’s law so commonly prevails and tomato sauce meets white fabric, we often turn to basic home remedies to tackle the stain. Yet, despite the not always effective application of lemon juice, salt, baking soda, or detergents, some clothes simply do not regain their lustre. Added to the wide variety of problem food stains are paint stains and other commonplace substances such as grease, oils, and polishes. Moreover, the more we wash our favourite white shirt, the more the fabric weathers and the brilliant white fades and yellows. In many cases, our home remedies are not ideally able to preserve a white garment that is precious to us.
To effectively fight stains on white linen, to whiten our clothes, or to clean a wedding dress, the best result can only be achieved using an ecological cleaner.
Clean White in a Green Cleaner, an Eco-Friendly Commitment
Most of us are fully aware of the importance of an ecological way of life. Unfortunately, traditional dry cleaning methods may use chemicals that are very harmful to the environment and to societal health. A common harmful culprit, PERC (aka perchlorethylene or tetrachlorethene) also known simply as “dry cleaning fluid,” is a probable carcinogenic solvent that can cause serious damage to the central nervous system and reproductive system, and is linked to colour vision deficiencies. Many of these dry cleaners still use and pollute an astronomical volume of water and lack modern facilities.
Green cleaners use a minimum amount of water. To whiten our shirts, they combine eco-friendly products with state-of-the-art technology that can dislodge stains from our white clothes. Additionally, ecological cleaning franchises provide a high-quality service for prices that are effectively equivalent to those of traditional dry cleaning.
Cleaning Delicate Clothes at a Green Cleaner
While we commonly entrust the cleaning of our shirts and our stained white linen to the dry cleaner, it may seem too risky to send delicate clothes or those that are precious to us. Would we really want to wash a wedding dress with an avalanche of chemicals? Indeed, dry cleaning often uses such a high temperature process that delicate features of a wedding dress for instance can actually be melted. And when washing a delicate white shirt, you may often see the shape sag. Unlike in-house remedies and traditional dry cleaning, eco-friendly cleaners take better care of the most delicate clothes and more effectively clean and whiten white clothes.
Not only due to its improved effectiveness compared to home remedies and dry cleaning, ecological cleaning wins our respect through its non-detrimental effect on the environment and our health. At Daoust Ecoefficient Cleaners, our cleaning franchises offer Super White Care and an unmatched service for dazzling whites.
