Technical Tips for Drycleaners
"The Dirt Just Falls Off"
A proven product backed by the research and experience of Sanitone.
Wetcleaning silk and rayon garments without damage, loss of color or sheen had always been a problem until Fabritec developed Elegant Care wetcleaning detergent.
Sanitone Elegant Care and Fabritec Silky Clean® are “state of the art” cationic wetcleaning detergents that break the electrostatic bond that holds soil to the surface of these delicate garments and literally causes the dirt to “just fall off”. In fact, after soaking one or two garments in Elegant Care or Silky Clean, the removed soil can easily be seen at the bottom of the container.
Simply add ½ to 1 oz. of Elegant Care or Silky Clean per gallon of cold or warm water in a 5-gallon container, totally submerse the garment and gently agitate for a few seconds. Soak for about five minutes with one or two additional agitations. Remove the garment and gently squeeze out the excess water. Do not rinse! Hang to dry on a plastic hanger or tumble in a humidity-controlled dryer set to about 110°F (43°C) and 6% relative humidity.
Garments wet cleaned in this manner will retain their “like new” depth of color and sheen and your customers will love the way their garments look and feel.
