Do you know how your clothes are cleaned? At Tide Cleaners, we use the safest cleaning process available, GreenEarth. Unlike many dry cleaners who use toxic petrochemical solvents, GreenEarth is good for your clothes, for the environment and for you.
- GreenEarth is essentially liquid sand, or liquid silicone. It is chemically inert, so it does not react with textile fabric or dyes. This minimizes damage to fabric fibers, decreases fading, helps maintain softness and prevents shrinking. As a result, more clothes and fabrics like delicate silks, trims, painted garments, couture garments, heirloom fabrics and other “problem” items are no problem at all.
- GreenEarth is non-allergenic and non-irritating. It is so safe you could rub it on your skin. In fact, you probably already do because it is same base ingredient found in everyday shampoos, conditioners, skin lotions, and antiperspirants.
- The liquid silicone used in GreenEarth 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 recognized as safe for air, soil, and water.
GreenEarth is one more way that Tide Cleaners care about you, our community, and our planet.
