Relaxx…It’s Safe & Really Easy Dry Cleaning

I’ve been on a quest to clean up my act, and make everything in my house ‘green’. It’s definitely more work initially, but I know it’s worth it in the long run. I’ve known for a long time that the petrochemical solvents, specifically one called ‘PERC” used in Dry Cleaning are pretty toxic. And I’ve kind of ignored the hazard, giving it a head n the sand attitude. I like my neighborhood drycleaners and they know me… but I know they don’t use safe chemicals. However, the more aware I am of how toxic chemicals are linked to increased cancer risk… and how they hurt the environment, the more I have to actually deal.

From recycling batteries to switching to organic foods, I’m trying to lessen my impact on the environment and myself, so I decided to try and find a ‘green’ drycleaners. Easier said than done. And many of them are more expensive than regular dry cleaners. That is until I found Relaxx Dry Cleaning. Not only do they use environmentally safe cleaning practices, but they pick up and deliver for free… AND they’re pretty reasonable! A man’s shirt only costs two bucks. I’m sold. They’re picking up their first load today.

  1. Have you checked out the Wet Is the New Dry article from LA Weekly last month? I don’t know how the prices compare to Relaxx, but the whole wet cleaning thing is supposed to be more eco-friendly than hydrocarbon.

  2. That’s cool, thanks for the link to Wet is the New Dry. I knew Perc was pretty bad, but after reading that article, wet cleaning seems to be the way to go.

  3. Hi Folks!

    I am one of the owners of relaxx, and I can tell you that after exhaustive research for the best eco-friendly process, our choice to proceed with the Hydron-Carbon process was one which allowed us to not compromise quality, or the environment.

    A note from the inside :)…the reason the DC shirt price is more than double is simply pressing time. Our business is all about labor. Laundered shirts are finished with a machine and DC shirts and other delicate items are pressed individually and often need extra care.

    I hope that answers a few questions.

    Have a great day all.
