Wet Cleaning

THE GREEN DIFFERENCE

Tavit’s Dry Cleaners is the only dry cleaner in the area that uses 100% Wet Cleaning. Wet Cleaning is a non-toxic, energy-efficient, water-based cleaning technology. Using this process, we gently wash your clothes with biodegradable soap and water. We take special care with the garments that you give us: each item takes one and a half times longer to process, compared with ordinary dry cleaning. We then expertly dry and press the items, to prevent them from being shrunk or reshaped. Unlike PERC dry cleaning, Wet Cleaning uses no hazardous chemicals. It is safe for the environment and for your body—even for children. And it leaves no harmful contaminants in the water or air, so you can breathe easy. In fact, Wet Cleaning is the only dry cleaning process recommended by the EPA.

Got PERC?... We Don't!

  • Found in some paint and spot removers, water repellents, brake and wood cleaners, glues, and suede protectors
  • Based on human and animal data, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) classifies PERC as “likely to be carcinogenic in humans by all routes of exposure”
