First and foremost, the disclaimer: Product and compensation was provided for this review however, I agreed to this collaboration because I’ve been using Dryel, happily, for years (which you know if you follow me on snapchat haaaaiiii). So, when the opportunity presented itself to share this magic in a more formal way, I jumped on it. So, without further adieu, clothing cleaning magic:
I’m the laziest dry cleaner. Ever. Like… I have a huge bag filled with clothing that needs to be dry cleaned but I’m too lazy to walk to the lobby of my building and drop it off. True story. That and I’m so over paying $8 for a blouse to be cleaned. It’s the same thought process I have when I think about going to sleep at a reasonable hour so I’m not exhausted the next morning. It’s a great thought but in reality I stay up til 2am watching The Real Housewives of IDGAF as that heaping pile of unlaundered clothes continues to grow.
Then a few years ago, I miraculously found Dryel. To be honest, I thought it was a great idea but there was no way that this could work: Spilling hot sauce on a crepe thin blouse and laundering it myself? Laughable. Getting deodorant streaks out of a black cashmere sweater? Not a chance. I didn’t even now how to cook steak until 3 months ago. How am I supposed to dry clean my own clothing? Save your shock and horror for my domestication skills or lack thereof for a later time.
Enter: Dryel. Spray a few spritzes of their fancy miracle cleaner on the affected areas, toss 4 or 5 pieces of treated clothing in the dryer bag, then add the moistened (sorry I had to) dryer sheet. Zip closed and throw in the dryer for 15 minutes. Et voila! hopefully you didn’t mix color families (although I’ve done this and it’s totally fine) and your clothes come out as fresh as ever. The packaging suggests immediately hanging your clean clothing so they don’t wrinkle. But since we all now know how lazy I am, sometimes I don’t get around to that part as quickly as suggested. Which is why I rely heavily on wrinkle release spray. Another magical laundry item sent from the household gods.
So, what do you think? Are you sold on the fact that you can clean your dirties in the comfort of your own home for a fraction of the cost of any dry cleaning establishment that’s not ZIPS? Do you already use Dryel? Share your experience in the comment section below!
