Since 2007, we have used wet cleaning to replace traditional dry cleaning, which uses harsh chemicals and may leave a “dry cleaning” smell or residue. All wet cleaning solvents are eco-friendly and represent the safest way to effectively clean your clothes. In addition, we also use biodegradable, reusable nylon bags, and recycle all hangers, plastics, and tissues.

Description of Action: 
Robbinsville Cleaners uses professional wet cleaning which is water based cleaning system for the care of dry clean only clothing. Robbinsville Cleaner uses a safer choice detergent “ECOS Plus”. This wet cleaning system eliminates the use of harmful chemical agents that have traditionally been used to clean clothing. By being a 100% wet clean facility we have eliminated the use perchroloethyelne or PERC which is a known carcinogen. Our store cleans up to 3000lbs of clothes per week. A perc machine would use 100 gallons of PERC to process this volume of clothing, so by cleaning our customer's clothes with wet cleaning we have eliminated 1360 Lbs of this hazardous chemical from our process.
