Caring for Your Clothes with Dryel

cleaning clothes with Dryel
You all know how much I absolutely love thrifting. There are so many great pieces to be had! It allows you to add high quality, sometimes designer items for a low cost. So what do I do before wearing these thrifted pieces? And how do I keep them looking their best without spending extra budget money on dry cleaning? My answer is Dryel!  
Dryel is an at-home dry cleaning system that is more convenient and less expensive (as little as $.25 a garment!) than taking your clothing to a dry cleaner. All you need to use Dryel is a starter kit and a clothes dryer. Dryel will safely and thoroughly clean your dry clean only and special care clothes without fading, shrinking, or stretching and uses biodegradable cleaning agents so it's environmentally friendly!

I have been using Dryel for years and love the ease of use and low cost. It works really well for sweaters, coats, and dresses that require dry cleaning after wear. For around $9.99 for a starter kit, you receive a reusable fabric bag (reusable for up to 30 loads), 4 cleansing cloths, and a booster spray. The booster spray has worked really well on stains I have used it on in the past. I love it! One cleansing cloth can work on up to 5 garments making it all very economical.

Using Dryel is incredibly simple too. You can clean your clothes in only 3 easy steps.
1. Pre-treat any stains with the booster spray. Add up to 5 garments to your fabric bag and then add a cleansing cloth.

2. Place your bag in the dryer and tumble on medium heat for 15 minutes to refresh your garments or 30 minutes to deep clean them.

3. Pull out those clean clothes from the fabric bag and hang them promptly to help with wrinkles.

I love the time efficiency too! It takes so much less time than trips to the dry cleaner.

Thank you to Dryel for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

  7. Wow...I used Dryel probably 8 years ago (is that possible) and totally forgot about it!
    Thanks for the reminder! It's probably better on your clothes anyways, because my mom always says the dry cleaner method is very hard on clothes and makes them wear out sooner!

  8. I'm so glad you did a post about this...I need to grab a kit. This sounds awesome! It sounds easier and safer on clothes than hand washing and letting it air dry, which would leave wrinkles anyways!

  10. I am a devoted Dryel fan. I hate taking my clothes to the dry cleaners, and I love how Dryel saves me from having to do that when something just needs a refresh. If only there were a solution that's this easy when it comes to having stuff tailored!

  14. Can you put all types of fabrics in? How well does the spray really work? what about a tailored piece like a blazer?

  15. Oh it sounds like a great product! We don't have a dryer so it wouldn't work for us but I got rid of most of my dry clean only clothes in frustration anyway, haha!
