Wet cleaning has been around for a few years now and continues to grow in popularity. The difference between wet and dry cleaning is instead of your clothes being cleaned in a dry cleaning solution, water and special detergents are used in its place.
There are a few factors which are looked by specialists in order to decide whether wet cleaning is the best option. For example:
- Fabric – material such as wool can be wet cleaned, however, it’s better for them to be dry cleaned as water can add stress to the fabric.
- Colours – Coloured garments are tested prior to cleaning to ensure they are colourfast. If any colour comes off the garment once it has been placed in a solution, then it runs the risk of bleeding when cleaned.
- Durability – Garments are often analysed to see which method is easier on the fabric.
