Dry cleaning is a cleaning process which is anything but DRY. Used for clothing and textiles and uses chemical solvent other than water. So as per the name its not ‘DRY’ but the clothes are soaked in a liquid solvent. Oneclickclean recommends to get delicates like fur, velvet, leather, sequins, motif etc dry cleaned always. Dry cleaning does not penetrate the fibers like water does hence drycleaning preserves the fabric quality and prevents shrinking and stretching.
