I’d think twice about cleaning my own clothes at home that are dryclean only. You maybe very sorry.

Most cleaners clean over 1000 lbs with a gallon of solvent, which conserves water and less strain on our sewer systems

I have practically been drowned in perc. I use to have to mop floors with it, and use it to clean equipment with. I have soaked by hands and arms in it. I have transferred wet loads of clothing from a dry cleaning machine to a tumbler, I have been over exposed to perc for 28 years, and I can say I have not had any health issues from it. Compare my exposure I have had to the common consumer having a sweater dry cleaned that at best may contain extremely small amounts of perc if that, then I should have been dead 10,000 times over from my exposure to perc.
