Clothes can be cleaned without water through dry cleaning. Clothes can be taken to a dry cleaner to be cleaned or cleaned at home using products such as Woolite's Dry Cleaner's Secret, Bounce 15 Minute Dry Cleaner and Dryel In-Dryer Starter Kit.
Dryel had the best results according to New York Magazine, but no at-home dry cleaning products compare to the effectiveness of an actual dry cleaner. Clothes at the dry cleaners are treated with special chemical solvents that penetrate the fabric to remove stains. The clothes are sent through machines in various stages to apply the solvent and remove the solvent, stains and odors from the clothing.
