It does not use hazardous chemical, it does not generate hazardous waste, nor create air pollution and reduced potential for water and soil contamination.” It uses the universal solvent—water—along with special computer-controlled machines such as the ones designed by Miele. The specialised detergents and conditioner used in the Wet Clean process are milder than home laundry products.
