Stone Cliff Cleaners was started by owner-operator, Odysseas Delaportas trying to use all the eco-friendly products and cleaning methods that are available today. With his fifteen years experience in the industry and half of these years trying to be ahead of the industry in environmentally friendly cleaning, he wanted take it to the highest level of eco-friendly dry cleaning. After researching he decided to choose HydroCarbon cleaning for Stone Cliff Cleaners. For decades, customers and dry cleaners had no real choice but to clean clothes in harsh, petrochemical solvents with known health and environmental risks. HydroCarbon is an environmentally safe dry cleaning process that replaces petroleum-based solvents with liquid silicone, a gentle solution made from one of the earth's safest and most abundant natural resources: silica, or sand. HydroCarbon was discovered by a scientist working with a solution used in cosmetics who realized it was removing the fats and dirt from his hands without drying them out. He wondered if it could do the same for clothes. Silicone has been around for a long time and has a wide variety of uses, but no one had found a way to use it for dry cleaning. The process of doing so was patented and now forms one of several baseline patents for the HydroCarbon Cleaning system. It cleans as effectively as traditional dry cleaning without costing more to operate. Even more remarkable, it can actually improve the look and feel of fabrics.
Dry cleaning is a term applied to washing fabrics in a liquid other than water.
Using water as the washing agent, like what most of us do in our homes, is termed wet cleaning. Legend has it that dry cleaning was discovered accidentally in France during the late 1800's. Apparently, someone spilled turpentine on a tablecloth with set-in stains, and every stain the turpentine touched came clean. Thus, the idea of "dry cleaning" fabric in a liquid other than water was born.
Turpentine and other petroleum-based solvents used in early dry cleaning were flammable at relatively low temperatures and gave off vapors that were dangerous to breathe. These two issues remain of concern with today's dry cleaning fluids. In the 1950's, perchloroethylene (or perc) was introduced as a "safer" alternative because it had no flashpoint, eliminating fire hazard. It rapidly became the industry's solvent of choice. For decades, dry cleaners used and disposed of perc without concern. Then in the 1970's and 1980's, perc's serious health and environmental risks came to light. Many regulatory and industry safeguards were introduced, but it was too late. Contamination from unsafe practices had already taken place, costing the dry cleaning industry a great deal of money and deeply staining its reputation.
More than 85% of dry cleaners still use perc today. Why? Because despite many significant attempts to find a suitable alternative, no workable solution could be found. Petroleum-based solvents may be hard on fabrics and harmful when not used properly, but they clean effectively and affordably, so dry cleaners have been reluctant to switch. Until now.
Stone Cliff Cleaners with the HydroCarbon process and by all the other eco-friendly things it does from the biodegradable plastic, or the new environmental vision series environmental machine which does not use steam or water or the garment bags for customers who do not want their clothing returned in plastic or paper, Stone Cliff Cleaners is the solution the industry has been waiting for. Our process is non-toxic and safe for people too. If you wanted to, you could safely rub it on your skin. In fact you probably already do. Liquid silicone is the base ingredient in many everyday shampoos, conditioners and lotions.
Clothes cleaned by Stone Cliff Cleaners aren't bathed in perc or other petrochemical solvents, they come back fresh and clean without unpleasant "dry cleaning" odor. But we're not just gentle on your nose. We're gentle on your clothes, too. You can see the difference for yourself. Colors won't fade and whites won't gray or yellow, even after repeated cleaning. Everything feels better too. Fabrics are smooth and silky, and sweaters feel soft and supple again.
There's a scientific reason why clothes look and feel better, liquid silicone is chemically inert, meaning it doesn't interact with fabric fibers. It just carries the detergent to your clothes and gently carries away the dirt and oil. That's why it's safe for even the most delicate garments-beads, delicate lace, silk, cashmere, there's nothing to worry about. And, unlike many dry cleaning methods, Stone Cliff Cleaners won't cause shrinkage and is so eco-friendly you could clean a baby’s blanket.
