The dry cleaning effect related to the type of soil and fiber was analyzed using silicone and alcohol-based solvents(ethyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, acetone) that are relatively safe for the human body and environment to improve the detergency of hydrophilic soils in dry cleaning system. Based on this analysis, an effective dry cleaning method to be carried out for improving the detergency according to the type of hydrophilic soils. After dry cleaning was performed using 20 types of artificial soiled fabrics consisting of 7 types of fibers and 4 types of hydrophilic soils, the detergency was measured and the results were compared and analyzed by solvents and fiber types. The results are presented as follows; first, the detergency of hydrophilic soils using silicone solvents showed a low rate of detergency. In particular, the tannin soil showed a lower level of detergency compared to the protein soil. Second, the detergency of hydrophilic soils using silicon solvents with dry soap differed in some detergency according to the soil and fiber types. Especially, the detergency of curry soil on cotton fabric showed significant improvement. Third, the protein soil was not removed from dry cleaning using alcohol-based solvents, but the effect of dry cleaning of curry soil on both cotton and polyester fabric was substantially improved. As a result, the elimination of blood soil is more effective in silicon solvents than in alcohol-based solvents. The removal of tannin soils may improve detergency by adding dry soap to silicon solvents or by using alcohol-based solvents as alternative solvents. The use of alternative solvents such as silicon and alcohol solvents can contribute to the environmental improvement of the dry cleaning industry, which uses petroleum-based solvents. It is also expected to provide consumers with the opportunity to choose eco-friendly and efficient dry cleaning methods.
