Understanding Fabricare

The objective of fabricare is to clean and restore garments to a condition so they look new.  Fabricare processes can be divided into two basic steps:  soil removal and finishing. Soil removal generally is accomplished by immersing the soiled textile item in water or a solvent to dissolve or flush-out the soils present. Some type of mechanical action and a detergent aid in the removal of the soils. Cleaning with solvents generally is referred to as drycleaning, while cleaning with water is referred to as laundering or wetcleaning. The term laundering is used to describe machine washing in either domestic or commercial applications. Wetcleaning generally refers to hand washing of garments in a professional cleaning facility.
