Once you go green, you never go back… Or so C & A’s customers say! This family-run, Highbury dry cleaners avoids traditional dry-cleaning chemicals in favour of environmentally friendly detergents, which are better for your clothes, your skin and the planet…
It’s time to get your coats out from the back of the wardrobe and treat them to some TLC! C & A is a local, Highbury dry cleaners that specialises in chemical-free cleaning. I popped in to meet owner and Highbury local, Costa, to find out a bit more about the benefits of ‘green’ dry cleaning.
When you walk into C & A you don’t get hit by that potent cleaning smell. That’s because here they use the revolutionary new environmentally-friendly solvent: Ecosolv. Only a handful of the industry’s cleaners are using the product, which is why C & A’s customers come from far and wide to use their services.
Ecosolv is a powerful but gentle cleaning fluid that’s 100% biodegradable, virtually odourless and non-toxic. More importantly, it doesn’t pollute the air, soil or water, so it’s much better for the planet. The shirts and coats hanging up ready to be collected look faultless and Costa tells me Ecosolv achieves that “like new” look, leaving clothes soft and bright and tackling stains on even the trickiest garments. It also preserves colours, safely cleans delicates and it’s gentle on accessories, special trims and buttons - ideal for complicated beaded eveningwear or suits.
Costa tells me his customers deserve it and the environment demands it, and it’s so important that people go green.
