New solvents have been approved but no testing has been done for residues left in the garments after cleaning. Claims by dry cleaners that they clean clothes eco-friendly are in violation of FTC guidelines, California Business codes and the BBB. According to the EPA professional wet cleaning is the best alternative and many wet cleaners process all garments regardless of the outdated dry clean only labels.
