Remove Tags and Hangers
Before you recycle dry cleaning bags, make sure they don’t have any tags or receipts attached to them. Remove any wire hangers from the bags as well.
Ways to Reduce
Use Reusable Garment Bags
Reduce plastic consumption by taking your clothes to the dry cleaner in a reusable garment bag.
Hand Wash Instead
Many items that say “dry clean only” can be washed by hand and gently steamed to remove wrinkles. Because the chemicals used in dry cleaning can leach into water supplies, only chemically clean garments that really need it.
