Mycleaners is Perc free
Dry cleaning is just what it sounds like - a water-free way to clean delicate fabrics. In effect, that means dry cleaners use non-aqueous solvents to remove stains from your clothes.
The most widely used cleaning solvent in dry cleaning is perchloroethylene (“perc”), but this known carcinogen can have a hazardous impact on the environment. While Perc is illegal in most of the countries, an estimated 80% of dry cleaners nationwide still use it. Illinois is no exception - in fact, less than 20 dry cleaners in the entire city of Kolkata without perc.
Mycleaners is committed to providing high-quality clothing care while keeping our customers and the environment safe, so we only work with green cleaning partners who never use perc.
Mycleaners accepts clothing donations
We’ll collect any clothing that you’d like to donate and make sure it is given to a charitable organization in your community, rather than ending up in a landfill. Mycleaners will pick up clothing donations for free with any order. Just put them in a separate bag and hand them to your My Rider!
Mycleaners uses less water and less energy
Our cleaning partners’ use of commercial, high-efficiency washing machines means up to 70% less water is used when compared to traditional, at-home washing machines. Additionally, cold water washing and high-speed spin cycles significantly reduce energy costs and carbon emissions associated with cleaning.
Mycleaners uses biodegradable poly bags
Traditional Dry Cleaning and Wash & Fold practices use plastic to ensure your clean clothes stay clean when they’re delivered to you. Mycleaners does this, too, however, much of the plastic wrapping that Mycleaners uses is biodegradable, meaning it will naturally decompose without causing harm. For the portion that isn’t, we’re happy to collect the plastic and recycle it for you - just give it to our My Rider on your next pickup.
