As life starts to slowly get back to normal, I am excited for some new projects this spring!
The first being an announcement that I will be one of the new Dryel Ambassadors this year! I am very much looking forward to partnering with this up and coming brand as they innovate a new way to dry clean clothes for literally a small portion of the cost.
As a fashion blogger who regularly buys new clothes, I find it important to know how to properly care for said clothes, especially when it comes to investment pieces. Year after year, it’s crucial to keep these pieces in tip top shape, or else money would be wasted.
Now, I have a confession. I tend to avoid clothing that comes with the “Dry Clean Only” tag, only because I hate to be bothered with the outrageous price tag that comes with such a venture. Sometimes it can cost almost $20 for a coat alone! No, just no.
Like Mitch Hedberg (rest his hilarious soul) once said “this shirt is dry clean only…which means it’s dirty”. This is pretty much how it goes in my house, other than those rare few times a year when I break down and pony up the dough for something important (read: investment worthy).
I was excited to try this new product from Dryel because it claims to use the power of your very own dryer to clean & deodorize clothing. The starter kit ($9.99), containing a booster spray and fabric protection bag works to refresh many different pieces of clothing, blankets (my favorite below!), and several other pieces of hard-to-clean fabric using a temperature-controlled system for your dryer at home.
The bag, reusable for up to 30 loads, works to clean clothes in as little as 30 minutes. I tried it myself, and found that in about 10-15 minutes I could give my shirts and sweaters a quick refresh, leaving them smelling great. At around 25 cents an item, this system could save people a good amount of money–not to mention unwanted trips to the dry cleaner.
