The freedom to wear what you want, when you want it

Has this dress-up nightmare ever happened to you? You got an invitation to a party that is the perfect occasion to wear that fancy dress. Such occasions are rare! You pull the dress from the storage and discover a big spot in the most visible place, too big to cover up with a brooch or where a brooch would look odd and draw the attention to the spot.

Of course, it is a dress that needs dry cleaning. You now have to make two trips to the mall to drop the dress off and pick it up. Of course, it is the busy week because of that holiday, the deadline for a report at work, or whatever additional item on your over-committed week’s to-do list. Sounds familiar?

Visits to the dry-cleaner suck time

For me a trip to the dry cleaner would be 15 minutes one way. If I am lucky, it will take me 40 minutes round trip including the time it takes until they have filled out the forms. Furthermore, I have to come back 2 to 4 days later for pick-up. What a waste of time!

Another bad thing at the dry-cleaner’s: They click that customer identifier tag into the fabric of the fancy dress when you are not fast enough to ask to clip it to the tag! At least mine used to do that! 😩

Dryel saves time, big time

I said “used to do that”. My solution to this wardrobe/dressing nightmare is to always have Dryel handy in my laundry room. It just takes less than 5 minutes to pre-treat the spot, put the item in the reusable Dryel bag, put it into the dryer, set the dryer to the right temperature and time. Once the time is up, you just hang your item back on the hanger so it won’t wrinkle.

You can find more detailed instructions how to use Dryel on the package and at my Dryel 101 post.

In the meantime, you can do what you had planned to do while your item gets dry-cleaned at home. What a time saver! In my case, at least 34 minutes even when you also count the time to search for Dryel at your local grocery store in the laundry section. Of course, you can also find coupons at Dryel online to also save money.
