                     Liquid Carbon Dioxide, and Silicone Cleaning Processes (9 pp) June 2001

List of cleaners is alphabetical by state and includes cleaners offering wetcleaning, liquid carbon dioxide
(Micare or DryWash) and liquid silicone (GreenEarth) cleaning processes. The list was compiled by
EPA's Garment and Textile Care Program, which encourages professional clothes cleaners to explore
environmentally preferable technologies capable of cleaning garments labeled 'dryclean only1, in response
to growing health and environmental concerns about exposure to perchloroethylene (perc).
