All throughout our lifetime, there will be occasions when we are required to wear formal attires such as gown for female and suits for male, in fact, if you are really keen with the clothes you wear and are fashionably vain and drawn towards wearing delicate clothes, chances are, you will require a cleaning procedure that may in return cause people’s lives.
Little did we know that dry cleaning uses a chemical called PERC or what is also known as perchloroethylene that causes brain and nervous system damage. Although experts have set a maximum level for usage for industrial dry cleaners, most small-scale laundry shops are at a disadvantage since they are performing this process using an open basin or what we normally call “Batya” in tagalog which in turn makes the laundry worker prone to ingest all the toxic fumes along with it.
In 2007 World Health Organization (WHO) have warned about long term inhalation of these fumes can cause serious harm such as liver and kidney damage as well as cancer, hence, it was ordered a total phase out in 15 years’ time (this shall commence in 2022).
