It is a cleaning process for clothing and textiles that combines a mechanical action with the efficiency of a solvent. Several types of solvents are used today. Perchloroethylene and siloxane (silicone) are two cases in point. A dry cleaning machine is similar to a washing machine, except that it is larger and uses a closed-loop system: the solvent is recovered, filtered and reused in the next cleaning cycle. Today, the dry cleaning remains the most efficient method to remove grease stains and other ordinary marks. This treatment also eases ironing.
