Wayzata, United States - May 17, 2018 /PressCable/ —

“Now we’re set up and ready for the next generation of customers,” says Kevin Dynan. He’s the owner of Wayzata Home Laundry & Dry Cleaners, which was started 60 years ago by his parents. He’s talking about a slew of recent upgrades, which were unveiled and shared with the community during a May 9 ribbon cutting ceremony coinciding with an open house for the members of the Wayzata Chamber of Commerce.

Attendees were given a tour of the newly remodeled facility, where they learned about the new environmentally friendly cleaning processes Dynan has installed. It was an opportunity to see how each step of the laundry and dry-cleaning process is completed, which all happens on site.

The second generation of this family-owned business wants to be out front and leading the industry’s change to less toxic and more environmentally friendly laundering processes and dry-cleaning fluids. Dynan had already switched to a biodegradable and nontoxic soap that customers say gets clothes cleaner.

But, there’s another process which must be used for garments that cannot undergo wet-cleaning. This alternative traditionally uses a chemical called perchloroethylene or “perc.” Dynan says his family began using it in 1968, but he knew it was time to switch to a more responsible choice when the neighboring city of Minneapolis became the first in the nation to ban the use of perc.

Dynan had to invest in new dry-cleaning equipment to run the environmentally friendly hydrocarbon-based replacement to perc. Help with this upgrade came in the form of a low-interest loan from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Dynan says that the equipment upgrade has been a success all around. He adds that the process is gentler on clothes, and customers appreciate knowing they’re supporting a business that cares about the environment.

Dynan is pleased with the switch from an operational standpoint, as well. He says that he uses much less of the new hydrocarbon dry-cleaning solution. “It’s less expensive to dispose of than perc,” he says, “which is now classified by the EPA as a hazardous waste.” The older machines were also much costlier to maintain.

The dedication to new environmentally friendly equipment is contributed to Wayzata Home Laundry & Dry Cleaners receiving its second Sun Media Readers’ Choice Award.

The trend to feminize the male wardrobe could be interpreted as encouragement for getting in touch with a female side or as an explicit sign of solidarity after a year when the sexual harassment and assault of women became a global theme.

ZAGREB, Croatia — Croatia's government on Monday formally canceled a $500 million deal to buy 12 used fighter jets from Israel after it collapsed over U.S. objections. The defense minister said the Balkan country will restart the search for the right deal. Israel and Croatia reached a tentative deal in March for the sale of the upgraded F-16 Barak fighter planes, pending U.S. approval to allow the American-made technology to be purchased by a third party. The deal ran into trouble after Washington said Israel needed to strip off upgrades that were added after Israel took delivery of the aircraft...
