My closet is packed full of treasures. And I really mean that wholeheartedly. I have jeans that I know I can put on without fail that make me feel like a million bucks. I have a favorite dress that is my go-to for girls night out. I have t-shirts from concerts that immediately bring back memories.
There are so many times when people ask me how I met someone or if I remember when we did so-and-so together and when I think back I often can visualize us in that moment. Even down to what I was wearing. My clothes aren’t just for throwing on. For me, they really do hold special memories.
So the last thing I ever want to do is to ruin them by simply trying to take care of them. (How ironic right?) But I will confess, if I were to list out all of my talents I’m not entirely sure that domestic goddess would necessarily be listed. So when my mom bought me a gorgeous new top for my birthday and I went home to wash it I will be the first to admit that I was a little confused on the do’s and don’ts. I’ve seen the laundry care symbols on clothing tags for ever. But I honestly never knew what they meant.
So in an effort to preserve my new top and my favorite vintage concert tees I decided that now that I’m in my 30’s, this was probably something I should figure out.
When you see the open circle on your clothing, then you know that item is meant to be dry cleaned. Want a tip: Use Dryel! Save the time and hassle of going to the dry cleaners (why go when you can do it at home!) and get your clothes safely washed. Bonus: It saves you up to 90% of the cost of dry cleaning! WIN!
Each starter pack comes with 4 packs, spray, bag and instructions. How does it work? The heat of the dryer releases a steam inside the garment bag that cleans your clothes and removes odors. The Dryel Booster Spray can remove stains and add freshness. But you don’t just have to use Dryel for your dry cleaning items. Use them on your favorites that you want to preserve too. That awesome one in a million pair of jeans? Don’t let them fade! Wash them in the Dryel bag! My favorite vintage concert tee? You bet that it gets washed in Dryel! You can find a retailer near you here.
I’m so super excited to announce that I am working with Dryel this year! Their products are so simple to use and have really saved me so many times in time, money and from ruining some of my treasured items from my closet. Be sure to be on the look out for some clothing hacks and tips on keeping your wardrobe in perfect shape all year long!
