CO2 Dry Cleaning
In looking for alternatives to traditional dry cleaning because of its use of the chemical perchloroethylene, we came across a piece from Treehugger that states the following…
There are three commonly discussed alternatives to dry cleaning by perchloroethylene, including liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) (Hangers Cleaners), silicone-solvent based (GreenEarth Cleaning), and wet (or soap and water) cleaning methods. Although not completely characterized, each of these alternative methods would be a cleaner (pardon the pun) substitute for perchloroethylene. The CO2 and wet cleaning methods are thought to be the most environmentally and public health friendly. While the silicone-method is also thought to be environmentally friendly, there are mixed reports about its health risks.
With that in mind we started to look for CO2 cleaners in our area. Not too easy, not too easy. And then FindCO2 stepped in.
