What’s wrong with Drycleaning?
Dry cleaning isn’t dry or clean.
It’s called dry cleaning because a chemical solvent is used instead of water as the cleaning agent. The most common dry cleaning solvent used in Canada is PERC (perchloroethylene). This toxic chemical creates hazardous waste and pollutes our environment. PERC also poses health risks to people who handle it (such as dry cleaning workers), and people who are exposed to PERC emissions from dry cleaners (such as nearby residents) or clothes (consumers).
Despite being identified as one of the “highest concern” substances for public health in Toronto, “probably carcinogenic to humans” by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, and“toxic”under Canadian law, some 80% of dry cleaners still use it. PERC is reused repeatedly to chemically dry clean your clothes… week after week, month after month. This means that other people's body odour & fluids etc. gets mixed together to form a toxic soup of nastiness your clothes are “cleaned” in!
