Have you ever wondered why it is called a dry cleaner? Well it is because of the process that is done to clean the clothes you drop off. Its a process that washes clothes with no water. The cleaning fluid that is utilized is a liquid, and all clothes are submerged and cleaned in a liquid solvent; the fact that there is no water is why the process is called dry. When you drop your clothes off at the dry cleaners, the employees follow a pattern that holds true at just about any dry-cleaning operation running today. The first step is tagging. When you drop off your garments, every order is categorized. Also jotted down is the date they were brought in and what date they'll be set for the customer to come in and get them. Then, a small, colored tag is attached to all pieces of clothing with a safety pin or staple, and this tag stays attached to the clothing throughout the whole dry-cleaning cycle. The dry cleaner also makes an invoice and information about the order and is input into a computer. If an item of clothing needs particular attention, such as eliminating a red wine stain from a shirt or creating a double-crease in pant legs, there's a certain colored tag that gets attached to that specific item of clothing.
