Clothing care is a critical part of maintaining a long-lasting wardrobe. You may be surprised at how many of your delicate garments you can actually clean at home. Just make sure to consult the clothing’s care label before proceeding.
The best fabrics to dry-clean at home are natural fibers such as cotton, silk and linen or strong synthetics like polyester. Simple pieces that are unlined and have no frilly add ons are your best bet for an easy clean.
The first step to cleaning your special-care clothing at home is to pick up the Dryel At-Home Dry Cleaning kit. These quick and easy to use kits can be purchased at most local grocery chains or online.
First, treat any stains with the Stain Pen as quickly as possible and spray high odor areas with the Odor & Wrinkle Releaser. Next, place up to 5 of your garments in the reusable Fabric Protection Bag along with a Dryer-Activated Cleaning Cloth. This nifty product harnesses the steam in your dryer to clean your clothing. All it takes is 15-30 minutes on medium heat in your dryer to complete the entire process. Promptly hang the garments up after the dryer cycle to release the rest of the wrinkles.
