Can you clean any kind of stains?
We clean all stains, however, this does not guarantee full removal of the stain. To give us the best opportunity of removing stains, please inform us what originally caused it, as the stain removal product may vary in accordance with this additional information.
Is Eastern an environmentally friendly drycleaner?
Yes! We use Biodegradable Sensene cleaning solutions.

Our Bowe M30 machines have very high solvency power but are very gentle on fabrics. Textiles retain bright colours, dis-colouring is prevented and your items are left with a soft “touch” and a pleasant, clean smell.

Our all-new Sensene cleaning solutions are biodegradable, have low aquatic toxicity and are an environmentally responsible textile cleaning solution. Great for you, your items and the environment.

Did we mention we're 100% PERC Free?

Conventional dry cleaning is one of those activities that few people think about when they consider environmental impact. For a long time, perc (short for perchloroethylene) was the most commonly used solvent in dry cleaning. Perc has been found to cause damage to the liver and kidneys, impaired memory, dizziness and headaches. It is also considered a potential carcinogen. For the safety of our customers, their families and our staff, Eastern is 100% Perc free. We are the only Dry Cleaner in Christchurch that has stopped using Perc completely.

Eastern Drycleaners will continue researching best practices, and the most up-to-date environmentally focused products. We want what you want, a sustainable future!

0% emission All-Electric delivery vans Our delivery vans are all electric, 0% emission which we believe reflects the environmentally friendly approach Eastern has taken with the use of modified alcohol as our cleaning solvent.
