Wetdeanine Equipment Report
                                    Introduction

Professional wetcleaning can be called something old and something new. Cleaning in water has
always been part of the repertoire of professional cleaners. The ability to clean a large portion of
clothes in water in an economically viable way became possible with the development of
machine based wetcleaning. By reducing reliance on perchloroethylene  the most commonly
used dry cleaning solvent - wetcleaning can reduce concerns regarding environmental and health
impacts of the garment-cleaning industry. It can help dry cleaners provide their customers with
high quality service while avoiding the burdens of regulation and liability.

Wetcleaning machines are a new line of high-tech commercial washing and drying machines that
increase the range of dry clean only garments that can be cleaned in water. Wetcleaning
processes include these computer-controlled washing and  drying machines and professional,
labor-intensive techniques which control factors, such as mechanical action and temperature, that
can cause shrinkage.

Wetcleaning is a process that requires skill, experience, and knowledge- with a dose of
experimentation for best results. With machine wetcleaning, several machine manufacturers
believe that the essential components of a quality wetcleaning system should include: a high tech
washer, the specifically formulated wetcleaning detergents/chemicals, a high tech dryer, and
proper training, cleaning skills, and knowledge of fabrics and fabricare.

This report covers the equipment currently on the United States market. It is divided into three
sections. The first section covers washers and dryers, the second section, finishing equipment,
and the third section, detergents and other chemicals.

With many new products being released at the Clean Show in June, 1999, complete information
and pricing was not available on all products.
                                    Acknowledgments

This report was prepared by Research/Outreach Associate Anthony Star. It was based upon previous editions by
Cynthia Vasquez. CNT would like to thank representatives of all the companies for their assistance with information.
Partial funding for this report comes from the United State Environmental Protection Agency Design for the
Environment project.
                                        Disclaimer
The Center for Neighborhood Technology compiled this information on the features and costs of wetcleaning
machines which are presently on the U.S. market. The finding are summarized in this report. This document is not an
endorsement of machine based wetcleaning, nor does it include a qualitative evaluation of wetcleaning machines. It
is strictly a compilation of information obtained from each company featured.

                             Wetcleaning Machines

 In machine based wetcleaning technology is harnessed to make washers and dryers with precise
 controls, chemicals optimized for cleaning hi water, and tensioning finishing equipment to
 restore the proper size and shape to garments.

 The machines in this report share many common features. Computer control, programmability
 and other similar features are the essential components of these machines. Manufacturers have
 adopted different strategies for their equipment. Some offer a full package system of washer and
 dryer (and also offer the chemicals and finishing equipment) while others sell components and
 allow the professional cleaner to put together a system tailored to their needs. The machines span
 a wide range of sizes. There are inexpensive machines designed to supplement dry cleaning to
 large systems for heavy production loads. There is no one best way for wetcleaning. The diversity
 of equipment now on the market allows the cleaner who is considering wetcleaning to shop
 among brands, technologies and scales. It is the position of CNT and the discovery of many
 cleaners around the world that wetcleaning is an effective, viable technology. It is up to the
 individual cleaner to decide what selection of equipment and chemical is appropriate for their
 particular shop.

 When considering the investment in any of this equipment, a cleaner should be sure to try to see
 the equipment in use first hand. Ask a dealer for a demonstration, inquire about other local
 cleaners using the machine for references, or attend trade shows or seminars.
                                         Note

In wetcleaning machines, load capacity in practice depends upon whether the operator is doing
wetcleaning, washing (i.e., regular laundry), shirt laundry, or leather and suede cleaning. For
those articles which are highly sensitive to mechanical action, actual load capacity is often only
50% of stated maximum capacity. The capacity will differ between manufacturers and machine
size. Where possible this report lists the recommended wetcleaning capacity.

Wetcfeimine Equipment Report
                            Finishing Equipment
While some equipment companies say their machines work with standard pressing equipment,
tensioning finishing equipment is increasingly recognized as an essential component of
wetcleaning. Performance tests have shown that wetcleaning is effective in the actual cleaning of
clothes, but that dimensional change (shrinking and stretching) can be a problem. The increased
labor costs associated with proper finishing of clothes can increase the cost of wetcleaning and
make it not financially comparable to dry cleaning. Tensioning equipment can provide a means to
reduce the labor costs of finishing clothes.

There are two main types of tensioning equipment, form finishers and pants toppers. Both pieces
of equipment function by using steam to relax fibers, moving parts to stretch and shape clothes
and hot air to dry.

                                      Detergents

  A wide range of detergents and other chemicals for wetcleaning are now available. Some
  products are marketed with wetcleaning machines while others may be purchased from
  distributors or directly from the manufacturer. The typical chemicals used in wetcleaning include
  sporting agents, detergents, fabric conditioners and sizing products. Because wetcleaning will
  handle water and oil based stains differently then dry cleaning, the process of treating stains will
  require different chemicals and process. Some of these products were originally designed for
  laundry and hand washing and have been adapted to machine biased wetcleaning. Others have
  been specifically formulated for wetcleaning.

  Cleaners particularly concerned with the complete elimination of toxic and hazardous chemicals
  from the cleaning process may wish to ask for Material Data Safety Sheets (MSDS) from the
  supplier. These information sheets will provide information on specific chemicals, and risks
  associated with the use of a product. Some of the chemicals listed here are completely non-toxic
 while others contain small amounts of hazardous substances.

 Professional wetcleaning is most successful when specially formulated detergents and chemicals
 are used. In the early days of wetcleaning, cleaners had a limited selection of soaps to choose
 from. As the popularity of wetcleaning has increased, there is now a strong line-up of products
 available.
 Wetcleaning chemicals can be generally classified as:

           Spotting Agents
           Detergents
           Conditioners
           Sizing

 Spotting agents for wetcleaning are different from spotting agents for drycleaning, and care must
 be taken not to use drycleaning products that are inappropriate for wetcleaning.

 Many companies offer more than one detergent, each tailored to a particular classification of
 garments

 Conditioners are add smoothness and softness to garments. They also coat fibers in a way that
 helps prevent shrinkage.

 Sizing adds body to garments. It improves creases and helps with finishing.

 Other products for wetcleaning include water repellents and specialized products for the cleaning
of leather and suede.
