Better for the planet, for your clothes, and for you.

Skylark uses two cleaning methods, both of which clean better and are recognized to be safer than traditional dry cleaning methods.

Professional Wetcleaning

Machine wetcleaning is a safe, environmentally-friendly, high-volume method of professionally cleaning clothes that doesn’t require the use of petroleum-based solvents. Instead, garments are cleaned in water using state-of-the-art computer-controlled washers and dryers, specialized detergents that are milder than home laundry products, specialized finishing equipment for garment pressing, and trained personnel.

Computerized operations allow for precise mechanical control in order to gently wash, dry, and finish garments. Various settings — such as mechanical action, water and drying temperatures, moisture levels in the dryer, and water and detergent volume — can be fine-tuned to administer a customized wetcleaning cycle suited to a garment’s specified needs.

Studies indicate that wetcleaning usually performs as well as dry cleaning or better for some garments without any of the hazards.

GreenEarth Dry Cleaning

The GreenEarth process replaces petroleum-based solvents with liquid silicone, a gentle solution made from one of the earth’s safest and most abundant natural resources: silica (sand). It cleans as effectively as traditional dry cleaning without costing more to operate.

When released to the environment, silicone safely breaks down into the three natural elements it is made from: sand (SiO2) and trace amounts of water and carbon dioxide. It has no hazardous chemicals. No perchloroethylene. No petroleum. So there’s no risk to the air, water or soil — or to you.

As gentle as the GreenEarth process is on the environment, it’s just as easy on your clothes. Your garments will come back fresh and clean, without unpleasant “dry cleaning” odor. Colors won’t fade and whites won’t gray or yellow, even after repeated cleaning. Moreover, GreenEarth doesn’t cause shrinkage. Clothes always retain their correct size and shape, no matter how many times you launder them. And because GreenEarth won’t damage fibers or leech dye like conventional dry cleaning, everything feels better too. Fabrics are smooth and silky, and sweaters feel soft and supple again. Your clothes will look newer, longer.
