Joe’s Organic Cleaners had a clear green mission, to protect the health of their people, their town and the local environment.   Core to that mission was replacing their cleaning system with a new state-of-the-art organic dry cleaning solution. They knew becoming an eco-friendly business was key to their future and the right thing to do.

GREEN BUSINESS MOVEMENT

Whether it’s to keep up with the competition or to abide by new legislation that is being introduced, today’s business environment is reinforcing eco-friendly business practices more and more. Some businesses are making green changes because they have to, but others are making them out of a belief in creating a positive impact for the communities they serve. Joe’s Organic Cleaners, a new Green Business Bureau Member, is setting out to do just that at their Westbury, New York dry cleaning business.

LEGISLATION CHANGES FOR DRY CLEANERS

By focusing on using an organic cleaning technique that is non-toxic and environmentally friendly, Joe’s Organic Cleaners is well prepared to meet the upcoming sustainability regulations in New York which will require dry cleaning businesses in residential buildings to discontinue the use of perc machines by December 21, 2020. They are ahead of the game with their investment in a dry cleaning machine that uses a non-toxic, K4 system. The bio-based K4 system not only cleans clothes in an environmentally friendly way, but it is also highly effective at cleaning garments. This has allowed the company to continue to provide a high level of quality service while successfully using a safer cleaning solvent.

FINDING WAYS TO INCREASE SUSTAINABILITY

In addition to investing in the K4 cleaning system, Joe’s Organic Cleaners is also focusing on other sustainability programs. These include:

  • Using dry cleaning distillation chill water re-use for laundry;

  • Installing LED light bulbs for both in and outdoor use;

  • Undertaking an Apollo steam trap audit and installation program; and

  • Providing a hanger and plastic recycling program to customers.

These changes have reinforced the company’s commitment to sustainability, while also providing customers with ways to get involved in their green focus areas.

EVERYONE WINS WITH AN ORGANIC DRY CLEANING BUSINESS

“We are trying to protect the health of the people in our building and community, and its important our residents and customers know we upgraded our dry cleaning machines to do that,” said Alex Kim, owner of Joe’s Organic Cleaners. “We may be a small business dry cleaning company, but we care about overall human health and ensuring effective environmental protection for a sustainable future. Complying with environmental regulations well before they go into effect is a bonus.”

Through a combination of investment in the latest technology, using the best available solvents and chemicals, and employing skilled employees, Joe’s Organic Cleaners is truly taking a green stand in the dry cleaning industry.  Their GBB membership is yet another step that demonstrates their commitment to sustainability and being a truly green business.

What Really Happens at the Dry Cleaner? Dry Cleaning.

Dry-Cleaning-What Really Happens at the Dry Cleaner

 

The term dry cleaning is a bit of a misnomer. In the United States, the dry cleaning process refers to cleaning clothes and fabrics by using a chemical solvent rather than water. The dry cleaning process is typically used on clothes and fabrics that cannot withstand the rigors of a standard home washer and dryer. It also eliminates the need for more time-consuming hand washing.

In reality, the cleaning is almost always done with liquids, however, the chemical solvent contains little or no water. While cleaning the surface of fabrics, it does not penetrate the fibers like water does in a washing machine. This process preserves the desirable qualities of many fabrics and helps to prevent shrinking and stretching.

Most dry cleaners also offer wet cleaning for washable items like starched shirts, slacks, and household linens,

The Commercial Dry Cleaning Process

The commercial dry cleaning process begins in your local dry cleaning storefront when you drop off your dirty clothes. Today, most dry cleaners do not have very large and expensive cleaning equipment on-site; many will transport your laundry to a central cleaning facility. This is more cost-efficient than having machines at every drop-off location. There are several steps for each item cleaned:

  1. Garment Tagging: Every item is tagged with an identification number. Some cleaners use paper tags that are stapled or pinned to the garment. Others use an iron-on strip with a permanently assigned barcode for regular customers. Similar soiled garments from different customers are cleaned together and tagging ensures that your clothes are returned to you.
  2. Garment Inspection: Before clothes are cleaned, they are inspected for items left in pockets, rips, tears, and missing buttons. These items are returned to customers and problems are noted as issues known prior to cleaning.
  3. Stain Pretreatment: As part of the inspection process, the cleaner checks for stains on the clothes and treats them prior to the solvent cleaning process. If you know what caused a specific stain, it is extremely helpful to tell the cleaner to get the best results in the stain removal process. This is also the time a good cleaner removes or covers delicate buttons and trim to prevent damage.
  4. Machine Dry Cleaning: Soiled clothes are loaded into a large drum machine and cleaned with a water-free chemical solvent. The clothes are gently agitated in the solution which causes soils to loosen. The solvent is then drained, filtered, and recycled and the clothes are “rinsed” in a fresh solvent solution to flush away any last remains of soil.
  1. Post Spotting: The dry cleaning process works very well in removing oil-based stains thanks to the chemical solvent. However, other types of stains are not always removed effectively. So, all garments are post spotted to look for remaining stains. The stains are treated with steam, water, or even a vacuum to remove any remaining traces.
  2. Finishing: The final step includes getting the garment ready to wear. This includes steaming or pressing out wrinkles, reattaching buttons, or making repairs. Items are then hung or folded to return to the customer. The plastic bags provided are only there to help you get your clothes home without more stains. It’s important to take them off right away or risk damage to your clothes from trapped moisture.

History of Commercial Dry Cleaning Chemicals

Dry cleaning has been around since Roman times when ammonia was used to clean woolen togas to prevent any shrinking that happens when wool is exposed to hot water. Next, cleaners moved to petroleum-based solvents like gasoline and kerosene which proved to be highly flammable and dangerous to use.

By the 1930s cleaners began using perchloroethylene or tetrachloroethylene, a chlorinated solvent. They are highly effective cleaners and are still used by many commercial cleaners today. Both have a distinctive chemical odor. Perchloroethylene is referred to as perc and is classified as carcinogenic to humans. In the 1990s the United States Environmental Protection Agency began to regulate dry cleaning chemicals and encourage commercial cleaners to use safer, more environmentally friendly solvents.

How do you pack clothes for winter storage? How to Store Winter Clothes

 

Space, especially closet space, is a premium. Many people simply don’t have the room to keep their entire wardrobe in their closets and dressers year round. Storing your winter wardrobe in bins and garment bags frees up space for your spring and summer apparel and accessories. It provides you the opportunity to wash, fix, recycle, and organize your cold weather clothing.

Cleaning, Repairing and Recycling Your Winter Wardrobe

  1.Machine wash or dry clean all of your winter items.

 When stored for long periods of time, dirty clothing attracts pests and can also

 produce unwanted odors, mold, or mildew. Unclean items that contain perfumes,

 lotions, oils perspiration can also cause the fabric to stain and yellow.

 Before you pack up your winter wardrobe for several months, you should properly

 launder each article of clothing.

Machine wash all of your non-delicate winter items.

Dry clean any winter items made from natural materials, like silk, wool, and cashmere. Do not store these items in a plastic garment bag.

  1. Wipe down and polish your shoes.

Winter shoes come into contact with harsh salts and dirt. Prior to storing these items,     thoroughly clean each pair. Remove built-up salt and grime with a cotton cloth or shoe brush. Don’t forget to polish and condition your leather boots.

 If your winter shoes are badly stained, consider having them professionally cleaned.

To prolong the life of your winter shoes, clean them frequently throughout the winter too

  1. Send out items for repair.

 As you wash, dry clean, and clean your winter items, set aside any pieces that appear damaged or broken. This might include coats with missing buttons, clothing with minor rips or stains, and/or shoes in need of new soles. Bring the items you are interested in fixing to a reputable seamstress or shoe repair professionals.

If you don’t have an interest in fixing the item, find a way to recycle it.

  1. Donate items you will no longer wear.

While you sort through your clean winter apparel and accessories, set pieces aside to donate. These items may include garments that no longer fit you and/or items you didn’t wear at all last season. There are several ways to recycle these items.
