Give Your Skin Some Love

MCAreaRugs (1)We’re always so careful about what we do with our skin. We use sunscreen, daily moisturizers, masks, peels, facials, toners, cleansers, creams, and more. Sometimes we’re so focused about what goes on our skin that we forget about what it touches, our clothes. Every day when you wear that suit into work, your skin is exposed to whatever cleaner was used. We make sure to treat your clothes with the same respect you would treat your skin.

We are committed to being green and that means our cleaning products and packaging are environmentally friendly, as is every step of the process along the way.

Since we care about your skin, we ensure that all the clothing is cleaned and processed with environmentally friendly methods. We use a safe silicone solvent that is non-abrasive, non-carcinogenic and does not contain perchlorethylene.

After your clothes are safely cleaned they are later hung on recycled hangers and stored in biodegradable poly bags that are sturdy and environmentally safe.

Don’t go through all the hassle of keeping your skin soft and smooth only to expose it to dangerous chemicals. Contact us today and let us show you the green way is the right way!

Our Green Commitment, Renewed for Earth Day 2014

Sir Galloway Cleaners is a proud participant of the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI) Hanger Recycling Program. Many consumers have a pile of steel hangers in their homes from the drycleaners. All too often, these hangers can end up in the trash. For Earth Day 2014, 386 professional drycleaners, all members of the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI), pledged to reduce wire hanger waste by 35 million hangers, or 1,050 tons of steel.

Is my dry cleaner really green?

Since the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides no standard definition of an environmentally friendly cleaner, and has no approved cleaning solvent or process, professional cleaners can call themselves “green” regardless of their practices and policies. Some cleaners erroneously claim to be green simply because they use one type of solvent over another. This practice of “green washing” their business is simply a sales gimmick. Being “truly” green actually has very little to do with which solvent they use. Being truly green is a multi-faceted combination of environmentally responsible policies, programs and practices.
