(Host) For nearly a century people have depended on dry cleaners to get dirty clothes cleaned and pressed.

But now federal regulators are considering a ban on some chemicals used by dry cleaners because of their toxicity. 

As part of a collaboration with Northeast public radio stations, Joyce Kryszak of WBFO in Buffalo reports, even before new regulations are in place, some in the cleaning industry are adopting safer alternatives.

(Kryszak) When most people drop off their clothes at dry cleaners they don't have a clue what goes on to make them clean.  This is comedian Jerry Seinfeld's take on the mystery.

(Seinfeld) "See, the whole problem with dry cleaning is that we all believe that this is actually possible. They're cleaning our clothes, but they're not getting anything wet.  It's all dry."

(Kryszak) The clothes actually do have to get wet at some point - but not with water.  The way cleaners do it is by saturating clothes in a liquid chemical called perchloroethylene or "perc."  It doesn't shrink clothes like water can.   Harry Hardee, a dry cleaner in Buffalo, said perc gives customers what they want:   clothes that look good.
