I have been advised that having your clothes (i.e. shirts, trousers, coats etc) dry cleaned is not properly cleaned due to the process they use. Should one try to avoid in purchasing garments that are labelled dry cleaned only?? Please can you advise accordingly.

Yes, Napaak (impure) clothes will become Paak (pure)
after dry cleaning.
