Dry Wet Cleaning Christeyns

Premium detergents and disinfectants

The Pro-Fit series are dedicated to wet cleaning and contain the ingredients for a classic wash process: detergents, bleaching agents and softeners. The Sultra-line goes the extra mile with pre-brushing agents, cleaning enhancers, finishers for dry cleaning and stain removers for pre-treatment of persistent and hard to remove stains. A speciality in our range is the HiGlo dry cleaning solvent. It is odourless, 100% biodegradable and an environmentally-friendly alternative to perchloroethylene.

From dry to dry in less than 60 minutes

Want to avoid a substantial amount of finishing due to wrinkling? With our total wet cleaning concept AquaWave you can process delicate textiles from dry to dry in less than 60 minutes. As an extra advantage, by shortening the process time, energy consumption is also substantially reduced.

Favouring the environment

Looking for an alternative to the traditional perchlorethylene? With HiGlo you get an all-round dry cleaning solvent that works in all types of multisolvent machines and leaves a neutral smell. And what is even more important, it is 100% biodegradable.

Difficult to remove stains can be treated with the Sultraspot stain removers, including Sultraspot Soft for removal of general stains of very delicate items.
