For the Love of Laundry is the only company in Singapore to clean purely with GreenEarth, a toxin-free technology that is better for the environment, your clothes and you. We use an all-natural liquid silicone that gently rejuvenates the most delicate fabrics, making your clothes feel cleaner, look better and last longer.
Most dry cleaners use a petroleum-based solvent (Perc) which damages clothes over time and also poses severe health and environmental risks. The use of Perc is banned in the state of California and has been classified as a toxic air pollutant and potential carcinogen by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
Liquid silicone on the other hand, is a safe all-natural cleaner derived from sand, which gently penetrates fabric to rinse away dirt in a way that neither water nor Perc can. Liquid silicone is non-allergenic and mild enough to rub on your skin. In fact, we're sure you already have, because liquid silicone is the main ingredient commonly found in everyday shampoos and body lotions.
GONNA MAKE A CHANGE
We care as passionately for the environment as we do about taking care of your clothes. We may not share the same wardrobe, but the Earth belongs to all of us. Perc contaminates our air, soil and water and single use plastic dry cleaning bags clog out limited land-fills. Hence, we use bio-degradable plastic bags and encourage you to return and reuse our plastic hangers.
For every hanger returned, we donate five cents to Cambodian Children’s Fund, a charity that strives to help the country's most impoverished kids by delivering education, family support and community development programs into the heart of Cambodia's most impoverished communities. Our outlets also serve as donation centres for lightly worn children and baby clothes which are a much needed luxury.

WHY IS THIS TECHNOLOGY SO REVOLUTIONARY?
GreenEarth treats clothes like a mineral bath, so they don't just come back clean, they come back rejuvenated. GreenEarth won't damage fibres or leech dye like conventional dry cleaning, so clothes look newer longer. Colours stay bright and clear. Whites are whiter and repeated cleanings won't cause yellowing over time.
Fabrics love GreenEarth because it isn't harsh like petrochemical solvents. It uses pure liquid silicone derived from sand, one of the earth's most abundant natural resources. GreenEarth is a remarkably effective technology for dry cleaning clothes, and a solution that is also gentle for the planet.
WHY IS IT BETTER FOR MY CLOTHES?
Because our process doesn't use harsh chemicals that can wear out fibres or fade colours, your clothes look newer longer.

ARE ALL THE CLOTHES TREATED THE SAME?
Our professionals take great care from the moment your clothes are collected to when they are returned. After carefully separating each garment by colour and wash processes, instruction for the finishing and pressing are noted for any intricacies involved.
CAN YOU REMOVE A STAIN FROM MY GARMENT?
Effective stain removal depends on how the stain was initially treated, how long it has set in the fabric and what type of fabric we are dealing with. We try our best to remove stains as much as possible. However, we may not attempt aggressive stain removal on delicate garments for fear of damage.
HOW DO I PAY?
Payment is due when we deliver your clothes back to you. We accept cash or you can register a credit card (Visa, Mastercard or AMEX) with us for hassle-free payment.
