Skip the Dry Cleaner! Use Dryel Instead! (Review)

I can honestly tell you that I have no idea where our local dry cleaner is. I don’t even know if we have one. I’m guessing that we do, I just couldn’t tell you where to find it.

How can this be? Because I do all my dry cleaning at home. I have for years, thanks to Dryel®.

Dryel® is a convenient at-home Dry Cleaning system that safely steams and cleans stains and odors while removing wrinkles. This saves users considerable time and money. In fact, it can clean 10 garments for the cost of just one dry-cleaned garment, and it works great on everything you wear – dresses, blouses, skirts, slacks, even sweaters.

I recently had the opportunity to test out a few of the new Dryel Products, and I can’t wait to tell you about them!

  • Dryel® Starter Kit – They have changed the Dryel Starter Kit since I started using Dryel way back when. It now includes a reusable fabric protection bag for delicate items, an instant stain remover pain, and 2 2x ultra concentrated refill cloths. Plus, you get an instructional pamphlet that includes coupons, so you can save even more money on your next purchase. Using the Dryel starter kit couldn’t be easier. It’s great for freshening up every day clothes that are lightly soiled, or for cleaning and freshening those delicate items that are dry clean only, delicate, or hand-wash only.
    My review: I love the bag. It’s come a long way since I started using Dryel, and I love how sturdy it is. I’ve used it on every dry clean and hand wash only item that I have, and I have never had any problems with it. I was even able to get a gravy stain out of my favorite silk dress thanks to the stain removing pen and the Dryel system. It has also done wonders for my husband’s tie collection. He has to wear a tie to work every day, and because he’s always on the move and works with food all day (he works at a grocery store), his ties can come home just nasty some nights. Now, I use the stain remover and the Dryel system, and they come out of the dryer as good as new. The system is so easy to use, and it makes dry cleaning affordable for anyone. I don’t worry when the tag says “hand wash only” or “dry clean only” as long as I have Dryel, I’m good to go!
  • Dryel® In-Dryer Cleaning Refills – Once you’ve used the 2 Dryel cloths in your starter kit, this refill does an additional 6 dryer loads. And since you can keep using your Fabric protection bag from the starter kit for up to 25 loads, this is is great way to keep your costs down and avoid purchasing the starter kit over and over again. (I’ve actually used my bags for up to 50 loads before and haven’t had any problems at all! Remember, I’ve been using Dryel for years!)
    My review: I love anything that can help save money, and these definitely do that. With the ability to do 6 loads, that’s up to 24 garments. Could you imagine walking into your local dry cleaner with 24 garments in hand? I would probably pass out from the bill. This is much more cost-effective, and a great way to get clean, fresh clothes at home any time. Plus, each starter kit has a coupon for $1 off the purchase of a refill, so that saves you even more money!
  • Dryel® On The Go™ Stain Remover Pen – helps remove fresh stains from all your clothes – even the dry clean only, hand wash only, and delicate fabrics like wool, silk, linen, cotton, rayon, and other special-care fabrics.
    My review: This is my new best friend. Really! I keep one of these in my purse at all times. With 5 kids, my husband, and my clumsy self, I can pretty much guarantee that there will be some kind of stain on one (or more!) of us every time we go out. This pen has saved my sanity more times than I can count, and that’s just in the past week alone! Before getting the extra pen, I honestly never thought about using the stain remover pen except when preparing to use the entire Dryel system. But now that I’ve started keeping it in my purse, I’m never taking it out. I love how quickly and easily it removes stains, and that it can be used on any type of fabric. No more embarrassing stains all over my shirt. I’m good to go with the Dryel Stain Remover Pen!
  • Dryel® 3-in-1 Touch-Up Spray – specially formulated to safely care for your everyday and dry clean only clothes, and helps extend the time between cleaning.
    My review: I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this touch-up spray, or how often I use it! My favorite way to use it is to remove wrinkles from the kids clothes. I put my kids’ clothes away in their drawers all nice and neat and folded. I ask them to get dressed, and they come out of their rooms with clothes on that look like they’ve been rolled in a ball for months. The 3-in-1 touch up spray removes the wrinkles immediately and makes them smell fantastic. I also love to use it to freshen up my every day items – just spray, toss them in the dryer (or allow to air dry, but I usually toss things in the dryer), and they come out smelling fresh as can be.

I love the Dryel® System and will continue to use it to do all my dry clean only and other delicate clothes. It’s so easy to use, and I can’t even begin to imagine how much money it has saved me over the years. I would happily recommend these products to anyone I know. They have all earned the 5 Vinez Monkeys seal of approval, and Dryel® will continue to be a household item around here.

In late August, Wal-mart customers will be given the chance to try the Dryel Starter Kit and refill packages for no cost via rebate. You’re not going to want to miss that deal, so be watching your local Wal-mart stores for more details soon.

  1. 1

    My girlfriend used Dryel on her favorite dress and got completely different results. The dress went into the dryer perfectly fine, but when it came out of the dryer thirty minutes later, it was severely stretched in several places. The damage is very visible and my girlfriend is extremely unhappy with the results. This dress meant a lot to her and a single use of Dryel has completely ruined it. We definitely would not recommend Dryel for anything valuable.
