    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes dry cleaning at home cheap and convenient
    Cons: You have to remove garments immediately or they wrinkle; doesn't remove gunk

    Summary: I'm selectively cheap. Without thinking, I'll drop $3000 on a shiny new Titanium Powerbook, but I'll hem and haw for weeks before registering a fifteen dollar shareware program. I'll fork over $200 for dinner at an exciting restaurant, but I sneak my own ... read more

    Pros: Cheaper than taking clothes to the cleaners
    Cons: Doesn't do the job that a professional will, requires minimum ironing

    Summary: Home cleaning kits like Dryel may give the Dry Cleaners a run for their money---literally. It seems that anyone who wears dry-clean-only clothes such as, linen, rayon, silk, or different material blends, knows you never really ... read more

    Cons: Maybe a little expensive, but not bad.

    Summary: Who isn't busy these days? I don't know about you, but the last thing I want to make time to do is go to the dry cleaners. It's bad enough that we have to go to the post office, pet groomers, grocery store, and the dreaded Wal-Mart! (okay, I know you ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, relatively inexpensive
    Cons: Still not a substitute for the occasional professional dry cleaning

    Pros: inexpensive....and works well
    Cons: none really

    Summary: Like most people who first try Dryel..the expectations are low. TO dry clean your clothes in your own dryer and it actually work and they come out clean and fresh is ludicrous it would seem. To think stains would actually come out was a prepostrous ... read more
