Dry Cleaning vs. Laundering

Most people clean a majority of their clothing and linens with a washing machine that uses water and detergent, and use dry cleaning for business or formal garments like suits and dresses. But what is dry cleaning, and when should you use it over regular laundering?

In short, if the item you need to clean is delicately constructed, or made of a material damaged by water, use dry cleaning. 

Dry Cleaning

Dry cleaning refers to a cleaning process that uses a liquid chemical solvent other than water to clean clothing and textiles. It's a somewhat confusing term because the process is not "dry" in that liquid solvents are used, only "dry" in the sense that no water is used.

Natural fabrics like wool and silk should be dry cleaned because they are damaged by water. Dry cleaning is also good for cleaning garments with delicate decorations like buttons, lace, or sequins which can be damaged by tumbling around in regular washers and dryers.

When to use Dry Cleaning

Use dry cleaning when the care label of the garment says "Dry Clean Only". The following points offer additional guidance to help you decide whether or not you should dry clean something.

Use dry cleaning for:

  • Natural Fabrics: Leather, Linen, Silk, Wool
  • Petroleum-based Fabrics: Polyester, Rayon
  • Delicate Items: Buttons, Fringes, Lace, Sequins
  • Oil-based Stains:  Butter and cooking oils, gasoline and motor oil, personal care products like makeup and lotion

Launder & Press

Launder and press simply means regular laundering in a washing machine with water and detergent. Instead using a tumble dryer, the garments are then pressed for the sharp, crisp look everyone loves.

"Launder & Press" is also a potentially confusing term because its mostly found under the dry cleaning umbrella, even though water and detergent is used in the cleaning process. While it's in the gray area between regular laundry and dry cleaning, just know that the pressing step is the main difference, which gives you the crisp, finished-look that tumble drying can't replicate.

When to Launder & Press your Clothing

Garments can be safely laundered and pressed unless the care label says "Dry Clean Only". Everyday soils from normal wear such as skin cells, skin oils, sweat, and dirt can be easily removed by the water and detergent in regular laundering. 

Because dress shirts and blouses are in direct contact with your skin when worn, its usually better to choose launder and press for these items unless they are heavily soiled with oil-based stains. Water-soluble stains are better cleaned with water and detergent.
