CO2 Cleaning is used in the drycleaning industry and auto shops.

A quick correction. CO2 is not yet used by the drycleaning industry.
Several companies are hard at work building the first CO2 drycleaning
machines, but they are not yet commercially available, and there is no
real-world performance data on the process. Hopefully the first
will be up and running later this year.
