Thank you to Dryel for sponsoring this discussion.  As always, all enthusiasm is my own.  

When I introduced you to Dryel back in March, I mentioned that I love it because it saves time and money.  I've been using it for so long that I didn't even realize how much money we were saving.  I haven't had to drop a single thing off at the dry cleaners in over 10 years, so I was a little out of touch with the current prices.  When I did see a price list, I was shocked.  I knew we were saving money, but I didn't realize just how much we were saving.

How much money can you save with Dryel?

At the dry cleaners, you can expect to pay:
  • $4 per shirt
  • $14 per men's suit
  • $6 per pair of pants
  • $6 per sweater

The Dryel starter kit retails for about $10 and cleans 4 loads.  It also includes the bag that you put the clothes in, but you can reuse this with the refill kits.  The refill kits clean 8 loads for about $10. You can add 1 to 5 garments in each load, so the price per garment will vary depending on what you are cleaning.  

Let's keep the math simple and calculate for the refill kit at 8 loads for $10, so it would cost you $1.25 per load.  The cost per item is just $.25 to $1.25 per item, depending on how many items you clean at a time.

This doesn't include the gas you'll use to go to the cleaners twice.  For me, I would have to drive 10 miles each way, so I would use about 2 gallons of gas.  

Dryel offers significant savings for us because I clean about 2 shirts, 4 pairs of men's pants, and usually 1 suit a month for a total of $100.  In the winter, I would add 2 sweaters for a grand total of $112.  

With Dryel, I spend $3.75 a month.  And I don't have to drive anywhere.

Dryel On the Spot Stain Remover

Dryel just released their new stain remover that's safe for most fabrics, including dry clean only fabrics.  I'm a bit of a klutz, so I have one in my bag that travels with me everywhere.  It's easy to use; just squeeze and use the scrubber to erase the stains.  I've already saved two shirts with these pens!

Have you used Dryel on your clothes before?
