Is Dryel safe to use on dry clean only cloths?

Answer:

I work at a dry cleaners and we have actually taken in items that people have tried to use it on and it actually ruined their clothes! It created grease stains and permanent wrinkles. It may do the job really cheap, but the presser will press the garment even better than what you can personally do yourself with an iron or steamer. The cotton part might be okay washed, but its the lining that makes it dry clean only, it could shrink and make the jacket go out of shape and not look as nice. Dry cleaning can be costly, but it saves it from having to go out and buy another one. You don't have to dry clean certain garments as often as you think either, depending on how dirty or smelly it is.
I have used Dryel before, but didn't find it very effective. Putting clothes in a bag with a bunch of chemicals and heating it up didn't work well for me. My wife has serious allergies to the chemicals they use in Dryel as well as at every dry cleaner we've used. We found a product that is chemical free, and would fall into the green category. Refresh'n Dryer Towel. It works quickly (10 min) and it steams your clothes in the dryer without chemicals or bags. We just did her winter coat made up of cotton, polyester and faux fur. It came out great. The towel itself has a velcro effect so it picks up lint, dust and dirt from the clothes and traps it. If there are stains on your coat, you could use a mild stain remover before Refreshing it. The towel lasts forever and can be recycled.
That's exactly what Dryel was made for--to use on dry clean only clothes. I haven't personally used it, because I don't buy dry clean only clothes, but my mom and sister swear by it.
u can use sculpy, fimo or premo clay that bakes up hard in the oven. u may need clay tools to sculpt it before u bake it. u will also need wire or string to make jewlery out of. and a set of jewlery pliers as well as clasps (i'm not sure if u can make those from scratch)
