—This document shows the results of developed a dry cleaning process that replaces the traditional dry cleaning using perchlorethylene solvent, which we know is highly damaging to people and the environment.
This process has several components on which we have worked to get to determine an alternate method of dry cleaning with new ecological solvent, washing the results through testing quality textiles which have been washed garments under this new process give an even better positive results of the current market and this procedure is considered as the best alternative to dry cleaning Alpaca fiber reducing gradually the use of traditional process with harmful Perchloroethylene solvent currently employed in Arequipa-Perú city.
