AURORA, Colo. – There is a new way to save green, while going green at the same time. $1.99 Any Garment Cleaners on South Parker Road in Aurora says they are changing the dry-cleaning industry one shirt at a time.
“There’s no odor. You come into our stores people can’t believe it’s a dry cleaner,” says Reuben Rosenblatt.
That’s because many dry cleaners still use petrochemicals like PERC to clean your clothes.
“Green isn’t regulated by the EPA, we don’t have any chemical waste,” said owner Michelle Lange.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, tetrachloroethylene, also known as perchloroethylene or PERC, is a toxic chemical that can contaminate the air, water and ground.
“We found this [cleaning solution] as an alternative to the old cleaning. We realized it was perfect,” said Rosenblatt.
The alternative solution is made by GreenEarth Cleaning. It is essentially liquefied sand or silicone.
“The silicone beads will just grab the dirt from within the garment and remove them safely. They don’t damage fibers as it happens. They don’t take color as it happens,” Lange said.
It’s safe enough for sensitive skin and — at only $1.99 — it’s even safer for your wallet.
“This isn’t the first cleaners to go green, but we’re the first ones that married the discount with the full green clean,” said Lange.
