If Spending Money on the Dry Cleaner Does Not Excite You

Hope you had a great weekend! Mine was busy and fun and now here I am.

This weekend I was at Target and I saw this little kit from Dryel that claims to dry-clean at home in your dryer. It says it’s for “touch ups” only (meaning you still have to go to the dry cleaner) but I wanted to check it out. My strategy used to be to completely avoid dry-clean only clothes, but a few of the blazers and dress pants I have need to be dry cleaned. There’s something in my brain (lack of maturity, perhaps) which makes me sad about spending money on things that don’t provide immediate enjoyment. The dry cleaner definitely falls into this category. If I could cut back on trips that would be terrific. I was a little skeptical about this thing, but I wanted to give it a shot.

I have to say, this little kit really impressed me. It’s really easy to use. You spray a cleansing spray onto each garment you want to clean (up to four), you place them in this reusable canvas bag, throw a little cleaning cloth into the bag with your clothes, then put it in the dryer on medium heat for thirty minutes. Boom. Clean clothes.

I wasn’t sure exactly how clean this would make the clothes, but I took them out and the wrinkles were gone and everything had a really nice fresh scent. This system probably can’t completely replace a trip to the cleaners, but it can definitely be something you do once a week or so to avoid having to make a weekly trip. My clothes have that nice “just out of the wash” scent and are all wrinkle-free. I’ll definitely be using this again. I’d be interested to see how it would work with stains. In that case you may need to bring in the big guns, but for general cleaning and touch-ups I think this is a great idea. I’m definitely a fan.
