Green Dry Cleaning That’s 100% Non-Toxic!
Mulberrys’ dry cleaning services in Minneapolis and San Francisco combine classic craftsmanship with 100% toxin-free technologies that are innovative, safe, and environmentally-friendly. Ordinary dry cleaners use harsh chemicals such as perchlorethylene or siloxane and high levels of heat to dry clean your clothes. At Mulberrys Garment Care, our award-winning dry cleaning and stain removal experts use toxin-free solvents and detergents to clean your clothes. This enables us to return your clothes cleaner and without the chemical smell.
Environmentally Responsible Dry Cleaning and Laundry
Our commitment to eco-friendly, green dry cleaning practices extends beyond our use of 100% non-toxic cleaning techniques. Mulberrys is also incredibly proud to be a carbon-neutral business. This means Mulberrys does not contribute a net release of carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere, offsetting those emissions by planting trees. But we don’t stop there, as we also strive to increase reliance on green power production for our cleaning facilities. Our San Francisco-area facility is powered by solar energy while our cleaning center in the Minneapolis-area is powered by wind energy.
Mulberrys uses recycled wood for our hangers and recyclable garment bags. Our pickup and delivery services also enable you to stay home, save on gas and conserve emissions by letting our one vehicle drive to you instead of many vehicles driving to us.
Mulberrys wants to do its part to join the communities we serve in leading the way for environmental stewardship and eco-friendly behavior. We believe in preserving the quality of clothing with the best dry cleaning possible by using the best and safest methods possible.
Mulberrys’ Eco-Friendly Dry Cleaning Mission
Mulberrys Garment Care has been a pioneer of eco-friendly, green dry cleaning services since its founding. Our values are deeply rooted in environmentally friendly dry and wet cleaning methods as well as other sustainable efforts wherever we can provide them. Since the dawn of dry cleaning, people have been accepting the use of the harmful chemicals traditionally used to clean clothing.
Dry cleaning has existed, in some form or another, for thousands of years. Original methods used by the Romans included the use of lye, ammonia and a type of clay called fuller’s earth. As time progressed, however, so did fashion. As common wardrobes became more extensive and elaborate, the need for a better method of cleaning them arose. Methods progressed and chemicals changed as the need for dry cleaning services only grew with time.
The most commonly used chemical in archaic methods of dry cleaning is called perchloroethylene, or perc for short. Popularized in the late 1930s, perc came into abundant use as the previously preferred solution of petroleum solvents diminished due to World War II. While it seemed like the perfect cleaning solution as it proved to have unmatchable cleaning power on all fabrics and wasn’t flammable, perc is a toxic sludge. Its capabilities made it the ideal option for decades—until now.
