We Dry Cleanest

Eastern Drycleaners does not use “PERC” as our cleaning solvent. Perc is so toxic that it is illegal in the USA and in Europe.

Your nose knows. Perc has that terrible smell often associated with drycleaners. Our more advanced cleaning methods leave your clothes smelling fresh and clean without that chemical smell.

So why do drycleaners use Perc when it is so toxic and it smells bad? The answer is simple. Its cheap.

The question to ask your drycleaner is - Do they use Perc in their factory - anywhere at all?" Unless their answer is a categorical "No" then you have your answer.

We suggest you Google “The Dangers of Using Perc” to learn just how toxic PERC is for you, your family and the environment.

Eastern Drycleaners uses modified alcohol as our cleaning solvent and we are the first and only drycleaner in Christchurch to introduce LAGOON by Electrolux - The latest technology in drycleaning. This is Solvent Free Drycleaning that uses highly specialised soaps instead of solvents. Both methods have advantages and give the highest quality clean with the most environmentally friendly approach.

  • Modified alcohol removes the highest range of stains but it also keeps colours bright and prevents discolouration.

  • Modified alcohol is biodegradable and has a low aquatic toxicity, and is therefore an environmentally responsible cleaning solution.

  • Modified alcohol is gentle, ideal for even the most delicate of fabrics, leaving them with a great feel, not stiff and itchy.

  • Modified alcohol leaves nothing but a pleasant, clean smell - no yucky chemical smell often associated with dry cleaning.
