"That they (the older women) admonish the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Review and Giveaway: Dryel Dry Cleaning Starter Kit


I don't dry clean. Period. End of statement. I don't do it. This means I also don't buy anything that says "dry clean only" on it. That is, I didn't until this summer. I bought this adorable $1 linen skirt at a garage sale without looking at the tag. Sure enough, there was the dreaded phrase: DRY CLEAN ONLY!!!

Ack! What to do? I'm certainly not going to make a trip to the dry cleaners with two small children in tow for one skirt. I was contemplating washing it anyway but I really didn't want to ruin my $1 bargain find. :)How lucky for me I signed up to review the Dryel Dry Cleaning Starter Kit!! Using just my dryer and the Dryel Dry Cleaning system, I can now clean my skirt and any other Dry Clean only things I may now purchase!

The kit comes with a large bag that will fit 1-4 items. You add a Dryel cleaning cloth (my free sample was clean breeze scent) and put the bag n the dryer. In just 30 minutes, pull your clothes out, hang them up so any wrinkles can fall out and you're done! The bag is reusable (up to 50 loads), you just have to buy additional cleaning cloths. My kit also came with refill coupons, since I'm so cheap and all. :)

Interested in having one of your own? Yeah, I thought so. I will be giving away one Dryel Starter Kit (see the end of this post) or if you aren't lucky enough to win, Wal-mart will have Dryel Starter kits you can buy that have a "Free after mail-in rebate" offer on them.

Want to win one and skip the hassel of a rebate? To enter the giveaway you can do any of the following, leaving a separate comment for each:
  1. Tell me what you do about dry cleaning stuff
  2. Become a follower/feed reader or tell me if you already do (left side of the blog)!

  4. Become a subscriber or tell me if you already do (left side)!
  5. Follow me on twitter or tell me if you already do!
  6. Become a fan of the Christian Frugal Mama Facebook page or let me know if you already are!
That's 6 chances to win! The giveaway is open from now until Friday September 10th at 11PM EST when I will randomly pick a winner. I will email the winner (so make sure you leave a way for me to email you!) and the winner will have 48 hours to respond. If they don't, I will pick a new winner. Good luck!!

I wish I could honestly say that I have a dry cleaning routine but I don't. This product would be fantastic for my children's church clothes that SHOULD go to the dry cleaner but instead I throw in the washer/dryer or handwash.

Also, for another chance at the Dryel giveaway, I want to tell you that you can actually wash and dry a suit (not sure about a wool one) if you have a front-loading washer, which doesn't twist it like a regular washer. I use the light wash setting and even put the suit in the dryer, but I don't dry it totally. I hang the jacket and pants on hangers to finish drying it. I have never tried a wool suit, but if I did, I wouldn't put it in the dryer!

I usually wait for the local radio station to sell gift certificates to our local cleaners for half off, then at least I don't feel like I'm getting totally ripped off. Never tried these, would love the chance to see how they work! Thanks! Paula

We don't do dry cleaning.

I used to have a dryel kit, but it disappeared in a move. So right now I either wash the stuff in the washing machine, on gentle, or I put it in a bag to wait for dry cleaning, where it still sits, 2 years later. heh. not good.

I try to buy things that don't need dry cleaning. I do have to take those few things in--this would be great. Thanks

I don't have many things that need dry cleaning so I just bring them to a local cleaners as needed. I've always wanted to try one of these kits.
