Dry Cleaning is Not Frugal or Cheap
Today was the day (okay, so Monday was the day but who's counting) that I took the pile to the dry cleaners. I gave them 7 pieces to launder, and 3 pieces to dry clean. Guess what the total came to? About FIFTY DOLLARS! $50 for 10 pieces of clothing. I could have gotten a new outfit at Forever 21 for that amount of money!
Now, if you just launder clothing, it's about $2.50 a pop. Not so bad. But those 3 dry clean items will get you--$11.50 each!! I was in shock. What are they doing, gluing diamonds on my dresses?
I'm considering buying this little *gem* over to the left called Dryel. At-Home Dry Cleaning Start Kit. Now THAT'S what I need to keep my pretty clothes clean, and my wallet full.
Has anyone else used Dryel before and have any advice? Is it good? Bad? Let me know!
