    How do they dry clean clothes?

    It's always been a mystery to me how you can get clothes clean without water. Just wondered how they do it.

    I think there is some type of solvent they put on the clothes and they put them into a machine like a dryer. The clothes are wet with the solvent they just are not soaked in water.

      Does anyone know of  a dry cleaner company in Provo? I found the site http://www.qualitycleanersut.com/Services/. It looks pretty good to me. Has anyone contacted them before? How was it?

    All I know is that they use some some of dry chemical powder.  Dry cleaning shops always smell quite strange -  and 'chemically' !!! (if that's a word!)
