Simply put, wet cleaning is the process of cleaning "dry clean only" clothes in water instead of traditional "solvent". Wet cleaning is not a traditional washing machine with powdered detergent. Wet cleaning utilizes special detergents in a computer-controlled machine overseeing the washing speed, rhythms and temperature to insure safe cleaning. Most consumers have no control over the true water temperature in their home machines. Our special detergents coat fibers with a protective film that limits the invasiveness of water while still removing soils and stains. The wash process turns the drum only 3 seconds of every minute. A conditioning process follows which softens clothing, bringing body back into fibers. The spinning process in a wet cleaning machine can effectively remove 75 percent of all water so clothes are virtually dry and therefore spend a very limited time in the drying process, the cause of most shrinkage.
