For years, there has been no choice but to clean clothes in solvents which have been based upon carbon chemistry. We clean clothes with a new solvent -- GreenEarth Solvent! Unlike current solvents, it's a solution that is not based on carbon chemistry, its a liquid silicone!
From alterations and tailoring, laundry and wet cleaning, we have a complete range of services to meet your needs. We strive to provide each of our customers quality and service at a fair price.

GreenEarth™ is the brand name for a dry cleaning process using liquid silicone decamethylpentacyclosiloxane (D5) as the solvent. Liquid silicone is an odorless, colorless liquid that is an excellent carrier for detergents and additives and is environment friendly. GreenEarth™ is an exclusive, patented dry cleaning process - there are no "generic" forms of GreenEarth™.
GreenEarth™ liquid silicone is a safe, natural byproduct of sand. Liquid silicone degrades into sand (SiO2) and trace amounts of water and carbon dioxide if spilled or released to the environment. It is not classified as a volatile organic compound (VOC) by the U.S. EPA, does not contribute to smog formation and is recognized as safe for air, soil and water.
GreenEarth™ solution is different from dry cleaning solvents in that it is chemically inert, meaning it does not interact with textiles or dyes during the cleaning process. The magic of the GreenEarth™ Cleaning process is how silicone emulsifies with silicone optimized detergents, creating a highly effective cleaning action that does not rely on aggression. This helps preserve the quality of garments, eliminate problems with color loss, maintain a soft "hand" and prevent shrinkage.
