The Textile Cleaning History Of Milan: Perfect Venue For Global Best Practices Awards 2022

The textile industry is one of the most important sectors of the Italian industry. It gained success due to its ability to combine innovation, fashion, creative style with production technologies.

There are many stories about the origin of the modern dry cleaning, all centering on an accidental discovery when a petroleum-type fluid was accidentally spilled on a greasy fabric. It quickly evaporated and the stains were miraculously removed. Around 1700 the first references for the use of an organic solvent (spirits of turpentine) to spot clean fat and oil stains on clothing are reported. The reduction in price of turpentine, begin 19th century, resulted in the rise of the dry cleaning industry.
