Dry Cleaner's Secret-With a Giveaway!

I am a stay-at-home mom I don't wear too many things that require dry cleaning. Have you seen what they charge lately? Yikes! My husband works in an industry that does not require him to wear traditional business clothes, so not much dry cleaning there. And the kids? Nope.

So why did I want to try Woolite's Dry Cleaner's Secret? Well, I have a few things that I love to wear that require dry cleaning-so I don't wear them. Not even kidding. I had 4 items that needed cleaning-one for almost a year!- that I was happy to try out this product on.

The directions are easy to follow. It even includes a step for spots (not stains). I chose a blouse, a skirt, a pair of pants, and a dress of my daughters'. After rubbing the pre-moistened dryer pad on the spots on the skirt I merely tossed everything in the dryer for 20 minutes. (The directions said to do it on medium, but the dress had embellishments on it so I opted for low since my dryer tends to run hot.)

The clothes came out great! This is definitely a product that I would buy and use. Everything was soft, and had a pleasant scent, but not over powering. I was super impressed with the dress since I was worried about the beads and bow. I guess I shouldn't have worried. It came out looking like it had just come from the cleaner's instead of my dryer. It didn't work as well on the spot on the skirt, but I really have no idea what the spot was, or how long it had been there, so I'm not sure if it was the spot or the cleaner, or if I needed to rub it more?

In today's economy this is a great value-especially for items that are not super dirty. Going on an interview and need to pull out a blazer, blouse and a skirt? Dry Cleaner's secret will freshen them up perfectly. At a box of 14 sells for $20.03, which makes each sheet $1.43, making each piece cost only .47 CENTS to clean. Seriously? You can't clean one item for .47 cents at the corner cleaner's, much less three. I could have actually gotten one or two more items in the dryer-the website suggests that you not pack the dryer, but only 4 items took up little space. The helpful tips page on their website is great and I wish I'd read it before I tried it for the first time.

NOW! For the giveaway... I was generously supplied with 2-6 count boxes of Dry Cleaner's Secret to giveaway. Just leave me a comment and tell me why you should get one. I'll close comments on April 30 and choose the winners then. Make sure I have your email address so I can contact you. Entrants from the US and Canada only, please.

Thank you so much to the makers of Dry Cleaner's Secret for sending me this product to try!

Headless Mom


  1. was it my homecoming dress??

  2. I'd like to try this! My husband just went to a funeral yesterday, I was left home to hunt down suitable clothes. 2 of his suits need drycleaning, he didn't wear them. This would solve that problem. It's not even the ecomony, I hate parting with $.

  3. Well, I am a working mom and I should go to the dry cleaners waaay more often than I do! It does add up however and so my work wardrobe has suffered immensely as I've been trying to wear only the things that don't need dry cleaning.

    I would LOVE to try this product. I can't wait to check out their website and see all the tips.

    Thanks for the heads up on this!

  4. I am a single mom and wear uniforms to work. I don't have many dry-clean items but the ones I do have I wear a few times before having them dry-cleaned. Would love to try this product.

  5. I reaaaallly need something like this. I finally broke down and bought myself a wool blend pea coat this year. Welll, lo and behold the kids knocked it down into the back of our car........ I didn't realize it was there until I was searching for it. Let's just say, it needs cleaning in a big way.
