Okay so here is what I got in my Dryel 30 Min In Dryer Cleaner: Cleaning Booster Spray, 2 Ultra Cleaning Cloths and Fabric Protection Bag. I also received 3 coupons valued at $2.75 in savings on Dryel products.
So here is the scoop: Basically you are supposed to be able to clean your special car clothes right at home in the dryer. This includes dry cleaning without harsh chemicals. Another feature is that it will hold the shape of your sweater and preserve the color of your jeans. Want to know what really happened when I used this product? It’s not pretty.
Here is how it went:
The first item I chose was this green dress, dry clean only, that had stains on it from wine. I sprayed the Cleaning Boosting Spray on the stains. I also picked my new dress that I only wore once, but I thought needed a refresher and my sons suit that he also only wore once. I had used the Dryel product before, but not this new one. I felt it was safe. I paced the items in the bag with the Ultra Cleaning Cloth.
Then, I realized that it requires a medium heat heat setting for 30 minutes. Well, my dryer didn’t have a medium heat setting. I didn’t realize that till I was ready to go. I was hoping that my timed setting was medium and in went the bag. What a mistake!
The Dryer removed the stains I treated on my green dress, but added several others! I think it was from the cleaning cloth. I could have cried. Okay, my fault. The dry cleaner wouldn’t even touch this dress so I figured I’d give it a go, but it was an epic fail.
My sons suit, was perfect. It smelled great and looked fresh.
My NEW dress ruined! It wasn’t even a dry clean only dress. The black color ran onto the white. I rushed it to the sink and tried to wash out the stains, but it didn’t work. I’m placing blame on the manufacturer and I’m going to try to return the dress because I did care for it as the label advised. ( It was difficult to see the black stains on the photos I took because they are a light gray.)
So, I think if you are cleaning jeans maybe you’ll be all set, but don’t try to put anything exciting in this bag. I give this a big thumbs down. Sorry Dryel, but you ruined my new dress and my old dress. I don’t get out much.
