Why Choose Lan’s Lapels
There is a scientific reason why clothes look and feel better with Lapels® powered by GreenEarth®.
The GreenEarth® Cleaning process uses liquid silicone in place of petrochemicals. (Essentially liquified sand) silicone is non-hazardous and non-toxic to the environment (liquid silicone is also the base ingredient in many everyday shampoos, conditioners and lotions). When released into the environment, it safely breaks down into the three natural elements it is made from: sand (SiO2), trace amounts of water, and carbon dioxide. This means there’s nothing to spoil the air, contaminate the soil, or pollute the water
GreenEarth® is safe for people too, it is very gentle on clothes. You can actually see and feel the difference it makes. Colors don’t fade and whites don’t gray or yellow the way they do in traditional dry cleaning, even after repeated cleanings. Fabrics are smooth and silky and sweaters feel soft and supple again. Everything just feels better.
True Wet Cleaning
Wet cleaning is a non-toxic, environmentally safe alternative to dry cleaning. It utilizes computer-controlled washing machines, biodegradable soaps and conditioners, and finishes the dry process by using special moisture sensitive dryers.
We say ‘true’ because only a tiny fraction of Dry Cleaners are using real wet cleaning machinery. Most Dry Cleaners say they wet clean, but what they actually have is the same household type washing machines.
Wet cleaning has shown to produce whiter whites, is easier to remove water based stains and performs better than “perc” for some items such as heavily soiled garments.
