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

You're making a positive impact on the environment when you choose Skylark Dry Cleaning. We've turned old industry standards on their head and approach dry cleaning in an eco-friendly manner through and through. 

Reusable and Recyclable Packaging

Reducing the amount of waste a business generates can take more time than opting for disposable packaging, but we know you and the earth are worth it.

  • Reusable garment bags are available to avoid plastic packaging. 

  • Wire hangers and plastic garment bags can be returned to us for recycling. 
  • Laundry Club members receive reusable totes. 
  • Wash and fold orders are packaged in 100% biodegradable paper bags. 

Cleaning Methods

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

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

Experience the GreenEarth process for yourself. And discover why the Dry Cleaning & Laundry Institute awarded Skylark its Award of Excellence, the highest honor in the dry cleaning industry. Learn more about the GreenEarth process at www.greenearthcleaning.com.

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.
