What Is Dry Cleaning??? How Is It Done????

does your clothes actually get washed when you dry clean it?
do they spray it?
do they steam it?
i brought my coat to them a few years ago and it had some crumbs embeded on the collar of the coat

when i got it back from the cleaners the crumbs were still there but the coat smelt like the inside of the shop as though they had done something to it
did they clean it, i honestly dont know because other than the way it smelt there was no sign it did get cleaned
so how does it get clean?

    Dry cleaning is any cleaning process for clothing and textiles using an organic solvent rather than water — generally known as dry-cleaning fluid and typically this is tetrachloroethylene (called perchloroethylene or perc in the industry). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dry_cleanin…

    Go to http://www.wikipedia.org. The whole process is explained there. I, too, have sent stuff to the cleaners and I get a little tag on the thing that says “Sorry, we can’t clean this stain!” It gets me mad because I figure I spend alot of money to get the thing dry cleaned. Sometimes you have to point out the stain or problem first and then they stick a little note on it for the worker to give it extra attention. That worked a few times for me. I also insisted once that they re-clean a long wool coat with snow stains on the bottom that I suspected wasn’t done right. It was a bit of an arguement but it went throught the second time and was much better. It almost like it was stuffed in a machine that was too full and it did not get the proper treatment.
