Which Spotting Agent to Use

What is the difference between spotting agents designed for dry and wet cleaning ?

    • As the wet cleaning process typically removes most water-soluble stains, it requires spotting agents that can remove non water-based stains. In dry cleaning on the other hand, spotting agents that can remove water and non water based stains are needed – although the degreasing capability may vary among the various solvents
    • Typically, dry cleaning spotters contain variations of solvents and other chemicals that may have high toxicity for human as well as for aquatic life. However, as their residues are not intended to get into the water system (dry cleaning is a ‘closed circuit system’) dry cleaning spotters are typically under lesser scrutiny. Spotting products designed for wet cleaning on the other hand must be compatible with the water treatment system. 

Is there a risk of using dry cleaning spotters in wet cleaning?

    • Some spotting chemicals formulated for dry cleaning are not water-soluble and may leave stains on the garments when used in wet cleaning. They should therefore be thoroughly rinsed. More importantly though, spotting chemicals designed for dry cleaning will interfere with the coating abilities of wet cleaning products and reduce their ability to protect the fabric; they may also cause color loss and surface damage.

Can I use Concord Textile spotting agents for dry cleaning?
