    The simplest approach is not to purchase clothing that needs dry cleaning. That's what I do. I don't think I've ever used a dry cleaner!

    I think the backlash here is down to the 'green' label.

    Dry cleaning seems to be an inherently nasty process- uses lots of energy for a small amount of clothing, uses odd chemicals and produces some pretty weird chemical wastes. Putting a 'green' label on dry cleaning is like running an electric engine in a Hummer... it's still an incredible waste of resources.

    Most of us still use dry cleaners for some things, but we don't pretend it's 'green'.

    Most people in Hong Kong, even the world, don't have a dry-cleaning machine. They use their hands.
    And you must be a very presumptuous individual with a lot of time to surf the web and criticize people for asking ligitimate questions. :P

    Is it really so wrong to ask about dry cleaner that don't use Perc or Hydrocarbons? And certain things need to be dry cleaned, otherwise I would have my helper hand wash them. (waiting for the OMG you have a helper comments now...)

    The woman in my local dry cleaners has underarm hair, doesnt smell so good and occasionally I see her eating raw carrot. Doesn't get much greener than that.

    After a little research, i found that the hk gov has only approved the conventional dry cleaning method to be used in HK so there are no other options.
