The history and evolution of dry cleaning

"It’s a captivating story. Back in 1825, a careless maid in the employ of one Jean-Baptiste Jolly knocked over a turpentine lamp, spilling the liquid onto a stained tablecloth. Apparently, Jolly was a frugal man: turpentine, a liquid obtained by the distillation of pine tree resin, was a cheap alternative to whale oil, the common fuel for lamps. While Jolly may have been thrifty, he was astute. He noted that the stains vanished where the kerosene had soaked through the fabric. And at that moment the dry cleaning industry was born!

Dry cleaning business previously fined for violations accused of contamination risk

"School officials are seeking information about whether a dry cleaning business recently punished by the state Department of Environmental Protection for various violations might have created a contamination risk at the next-door Gates Lane School of International Studies. White & Brite Cleaners, located yards away from the elementary school at 1256 Main St., was fined nearly $84,000 by the state agency last month for committing air quality, hazardous waste and waste site cleanup infractions, some of which also impacted a house on the property, according to the DEP." Read more on this story here. Unfortunately, in order to cut costs, some dry cleaning companies take the easy way of disposing and handling harmful chemicals. Based on the previous fines, it appears that this particular company might be doing just that. The fact that they are also in close proximately to a school is especially alarming. Here at My Pilgrim Cleaners, we take...
