A Tremendous Breakthrough in Dry Cleaning Technology

Environmentally Friendly Dry Cleaning

Gadue’s Dry Cleaning is at the leading edge of a revolution in dry cleaning technology.  Since April, Gadue’s has been testing a brand new dry cleaning fluid that is non-toxic, biodegradable, and safe for human health—not to mention exceptional at cleaning clothes.

Gadue’s Dry Cleaning was the first company in the world chosen by Kreussler Chemical to test their new dry cleaning system, SystemK4.  SystemK4 includes cleaning fluid SolvonK4, a halogen-free solvent that is highly efficient, environmentally friendly, and absolutely safe.  The testing phase, performed by Gadue’s and three other dry cleaning facilities around the world, was a complete success.  Kreussler introduced SystemK4 to the world in Milan, Italy on October 15, 2010.

Up to now, most dry cleaners have relied on a chlorinated hydrocarbon that is detrimental for the environment if released, particularly for ground water.  That solvent is perchloroethylene, or perc.  Alternative solvents have been introduced to the market in the last decade, but Gadue’s Dry Cleaning chose not to pursue any of those options because of their lack of effectiveness in cleaning clothes and/or cost associated with capital improvements that would have been necessary for the switch.  We have been careful users of perchlor for thirty years with the hope that something new and better would some day come to market.  That day has arrived.

By the end of 2010, Gadue’s Dry Cleaning will have converted all dry cleaning operations to use SolvonK4.  We will offer our clients truly environmental dry cleaning, as well as environmentally friendly wet cleaning and laundering options.  Vermonters who are looking for a green alternative for cleaning and restoring their garments will have one in Gadue’s Dry Cleaning.

SystemK4 can be found on the web at

Is this product available in Canada? If so, is there a distributor / Canadian Manufacturer.

I have a serious case of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity that plays havoc with my life and makes me very ill.
I live one hour from Toronto. I would be interested in promoting the product in whatever way that would help people to live better lives, promote health and vitality as well as look great.

Hi, Jannette:

Thank you for your comment. I’m sorry to hear that you’re dealing with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.

I know that there are dry cleaners in Canada using SolvonK4. I will e-mail you directly with more information.
