Our Cleaning Systems
Sunshine maintains a variety of cleaning systems in order to provide customers with best cleaning options for their goods. We use GreenEarth™ cleaning, which offers our customers the safest and most environmentally friendly option for clothing and home goods. We also offer an advanced wet cleaning system that allows us to wet-clean items that cannot normally be processed in this manner. Our wet cleaning system allows for better stain removal and maintains the feel and look of the item that normally would be dry cleaned.
The Science Behind Our Difference
To understand why GreenEarth™ is a better way to dry clean, you should understand what it's not. GreenEarth™ is not a harsh chemical like perc. Perc is a bit of a clothes bully. It is heavy and aggressive. It cleans by dissolving things it shouldn't. Like delicate ornamentation, dye, optical brighteners and special finishes.
GreenEarth™ silicone dry cleaning solvent is different. It is lightweight and gentle, has low surface tension and is non-reactive. It cleans by sliding thought the fibers, attracting soils into suspension and lubricating them away without rubbing, swelling or causing damage. GreenEarth™ can also be purified with energy intrusive processes required by petrochemicals. Optimized filtration technologies enable GreenEarth™ to clean using more than 50% less energy, water and detergent that either conventional dry cleaning and/or high-efficiency home laundry.
Sunshine maintains multiple cleaning systems. We have what you need to maintain your clothing. If it is mustard on the tie or coffee on the blouse, we have the experience, resources and know-how to give your clothes the treatment they need. Your clothes will come back to you looking fresh and new. Plus, our cleaning systems are environmentally friendly. No odors or harsh chemicals. You can feel the difference.

Fur Cleaning & Storage
The cleaning and glazing of furs requires experience and know-how. Sunshine cleans furs, both natural and faux, using a non-immersion process referred-to as the furrier method. This method protects the integrity of the pelts used in construction of your fur, and allows for the removal of containment's. Stain removal is done by hand, as gently as possible. Furs are gently tumbled in a specialized machine using a fur-cleaning solution. Linings are hand cleaned to remove soil. Linings are pressed and any repairs to the fur and the lining seams are made as needed. Great care is taken to produce a beautiful, luxurious fur garment for the customer.

Fur storage is a critical part of any fur's life span. Sunshine stores all furs in a temperature and humidity controlled storage vault, the ideal storage environment for optimum fur care. This keeps natural oils from drying out and maintains the sheen and luster.
Furs are insured for $300 value while in our possession. Additional insurance coverage is available, but most garment owners have a fur floater policy attached to their homeowners insurance that covers the full-declared value of the garment. Insurance to that deductible is recommended, but not necessary.
