Similar to washing, but instead of water the garments are immersed in the solvent perchlorethylene. Why? Perc is not only more effective at removing certain types of stains such as grease & oil, it is also gentler on fabrics. This is especially important with wools, silks, and most synthetics, which when washed are prone to shrinkage, distortion, and fading. Redi-Quick utilizes the latest technology, to ensure quality, environmentally friendly cleaning. Youíll notice the absence of chemical odors.
