Difference Between Dry Cleaning and Laundering

What is the difference between doing laundry and dry cleaning? Aren't those two the same? Well, those two are not the same. They are two things that are being used interchangeably by most people. So how does these two differ?
Difference in Definition
Laundering is washing your clothes using soap, softener, detergent and water. It also involves drying the clothes and ironing them. Dry cleaning however is simply cleaning with the use of chemicals such as perchloroethylene to remove dirt from your clothes instead of using water and soap. Though they both use a special machine to do the job, you still can't use a dry cleaning machine to do some laundering or vice versa.
Difference in Process:
In laundering you need to gather all clothes that have the same kind of material like cotton, leather, silk or linen. You can also classify them if they are colored clothes or just plain white ones. Why do you need to classify your clothes you ask? It's because some materials need a different detergent or soap to be used. Some also have the tendency to lose their color and mix with the white colored ones which can be very unpleasant if you need those clothes in their original color.
The next thing you need to do is soak them in water for a couple of minutes then add some soap or detergent. You can use a machine to help in scrubbing of clothes or you can do them manually by hands. Once all clothes have been washed using soap, you need to wash it with water until you can no longer see some soap being washed away.
The last thing after washing the clothes is drying them. Again, you can either use a drying machine or just let it hang outside your house where the sun can dry them. That's basically how laundering works.
In dry cleaning, you also need to classify your clothes based on the above mentioned categories. You will then use the machine-made for this process and use a chemical solvent to remove stains on your clothes.
Some shops that offer this kind of service even use pre-treatments to your clothes to make it easier for the solvent to remove the stains. The next process is drying the clothes using a warm air circulating in the machine while the clothes are being tossed around. After all of these processes are finished, the clothes then go for pressing and packaging.
This is basically how dry cleaning and laundering differ in terms of what they can do and how it is done. The next time you go to a laundry shop, try to ask which will be better for your clothes.
