My cleaner in Austin, Ecomat, offers a wet "dry cleaning" service. They even often refer to it as dry cleaning as they charge by the garment, offer ironing and will individually hang each item, the same service as you would get from a conventional dry cleaner, except they claim to use a method that uses steam instead of any chemicals. Does anyone else know more about this process? Surely they're not the only cleaners in the world to use it. I've given them shirts which have come out fine but I wonder how wool suits would hold up. I see lots of other customers that have them handle their wool garments so it must not be too terrible. Assuming that the steam is effective at getting dirt, sweat etc out of wool without causing shrinkage problems this sounds like a vastly superiour process to conventional dry cleaning.
