Abstract:

Dry cleaning is a part of every day life for most working Americans. Unfortunately, most Americans are unaware that over 85 percent of the more than 35,000 dry cleaners operating in the United States use a dangerous chemical called percholorethylene (perc), a cleaning solvent also known as petrachloroethylene, which poses a significant health risk to humans and the environment.
