Many dry cleaners use chemicals like perc which is harmful to the environment and can even cause harm to ozone. Apart from that, allergies can cause health risks due to the chemicals being distributed to the skin though clothes.
As an environmentally-friendly dry cleaner, Utopia Cleaners employs a cleaning method called wet cleaning, which replaces perc with water and biodegradable detergents. The owner of Utopia Cleaners, Myeong Ho Lowe, is a pioneer of wet cleaning. He experimented and perfected the wet cleaning system at his processing plant in Arlington, MA, turning hard water into soft water and employing special detergents and conditioner as well as special dryers. As a result, our professional cleaners can wet clean garments that have typically been dry cleaned in the past, including silks, wool, linens, suedes, and leathers. Our wet cleaning process leaves your clothing feeling soft and smelling fresh, not chemical. Once you’ve tried it, you won’t go back to the old dry cleaning method again!
Reusable Laundry Bags
To help save the environment, Utopia Cleaners uses an eco-friendly laundry bag made by The Green Garmento®. These specially designed reusable bags replace single-use plastic garment covers and help us recycle hangers.
The Green Garmento® is an all-in-one reusable laundry/duffel/garment bag created to help you organize and “green” your dry-cleaning routine! At home, this great delivery bag serves as a hamper; on your trip to Utopia Cleaners, it becomes an attractive duffel bag; and at pick-up, it transforms into a side-zippered hanging garment bag so your drycleaned clothes will be protected in a breathable, water-repellent bag.
The simple step of switching to reusable dry-cleaning bags will help reduce the estimated 300 million pounds of single-use plastic dry-cleaning bags and hundreds of tons of hangers that annually enter our landfills and waterways, threatening our marine and wildlife.
Please join us to be fantastic and use less plastic with reusable dry-cleaning bags!
