Giving Green Dry Cleaning a Try

Giving Green Dry Cleaning a Try

I'm thinking of a person who is a female.

I've seen her once a week for the past 8 years.

She knows my name, but I don't know hers. (I'm going to ask next time.)

Who am I?



My Dry Cleaners.


My husband requires his work shirts dry cleaned.  I worry about the chemicals used to "clean" his clothes.  When I think about looking for other options; I feel nostalgia to my familiar cleaners on Ashland that has parking right in front at all times.

I also stress about chemicals everywhere;  in our produce, cosmetics, sunscreen and even clothes.

Recently I noticed a new Green Cleaners opened on Clybourn across from Costco and they have parking too.  I put off going for a few weeks, because change is hard. After much procrastination, and my husband's snide comments about having no clean clothes; I went in.

They treated me very well and gave me a key chain and information packet to welcome me.

I learned The Green Spin Cleaner is Chicago's first and only CO2 Cleaners, a carbon dioxide-based process that uses liquid CO2 instead of chemicals like perchloroethylene, which is used in traditional dry cleaning.

Consumer Benefits:

  • Non-toxic
  • Non-flammable
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Odorless
  • Excellent cleaning properties
  • Gentle on sensitive skin

Environmental Benefit

  • CO2 occurs naturally environment
  • Produces no waster or emissions that require special disposal
  • Liquid CO2 is recycled
  • Does not contribute to global warming

The real test will be when my husband gives me his opinion of his "new" shirts.


The Verdict

After picking up the shirts (ready in two days) and paying comparable to my dear cleaners on Ashland, my husband said he didn't notice any difference in his shirts.

I consider it a win.


Have you tried any sort of Green Cleaning?  Were you glad you tried it?




I have not been compensated by Green Spin Cleaners; I am simply sharing my real life experience with you.
