Even some of Girlie Girl's dresses (that were gifts) are Dry Clean Only. Who in the world would make Dry Clean Only clothes for kids? Worse yet, would buy these outfits? Okay, I admit I have some crazy friends (bless their generous hearts) who believe that looking good is worth any cost. However, these friends don't have kids of their own and have never experience the mess a child can get into within 5 minutes.
Enter Dry Cleaner's Secret.
I decided to test it out on one of my blouses first. Girlie Girl would never forgive me if I ruined something of hers! The directions are simple:
- Spot clean the garment by removing any visible spots with the cleaning cloth.
- Place garment in dryer with the Dry Cleaner's Secret cleaning cloth.
- Tumble dry on medium heat for 20 minutes.
- Remove garment immediately and hang.
And this is the after shot:
As you can see, my blouse is still in perfect condition with no shrinkage. It also smelled really good!
This product is not to be used as a replacement for professional dry cleaning, but instead as a way to "freshen up" an outfit you've probably only worn once. In addition, the Dry Cleaner's Secret Cleaning Cloths are environmentally safe and non-toxic. They do not contain
perchloroethylene (perc) or trichloroethylene, the chemicals used by some dry cleaners.
It's already been given the "Queen of Clean Seal of Approval" from Linda Cobb, and featured in publications such as Real Simple, Parade, Domino and, coming soon, O the Oprah Magazine,
Bottom Line: As an occasional treatment, it worked the way that it promised. I think I'd use it on some of my clothes. However, I'm still a little weary about throwing my favorite cashmere blouse in the dryer. I'm just not that brave.
