There will always be clothing with the tag, “dry clean only.” One entrepreneur has create a dry cleaning shop that meets that need in an eco-friendly way.
According to Ann Arbor.com, GreenAge Cleaners uses energy efficient pressing machines, and hydrocarbon solvent.
â€œHydrocarbon doesnâ€™t harm the human body, and there is no air pollution, contamination of the land or odor,â€ said owner Michael Koh.
Koh, who is currently studying for a bachelorâ€™s degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan, opened the store because he wanted his own â€œgreenâ€ drycleaning business after working in the industry for years. He said he invested more than $250,000 in a complete line of energy-efficient machines.
In addition to a robotic shirt machine that uses less electricity and reduces labor, Koh invested in specialized pressing machines and utility form fitters for linen/cotton, dresses, jackets and machines that press pants two legs at a time so there is never a double crease.
â€œBy paying upfront for energy-efficient machines, you do not have to increase costs over time as the cost of supplies and chemicals rise,â€ said Susie Casalou of E & N Equipment Company, which supplied the machines to Koh and designed the store layout. â€œThis is good for customers and for him.â€
