Does Dryel Work?

Hubby has this really nice Ecko limited edition sweater that he paid almost $200 for back when he was single and had the cash to do stuff like that. :-p  It’s what he considers his one nice sweater even though I think a lot of the Walmartish cheap sweaters I’ve bought him are way better.  Anyway, he wears this sweater everywhere, and it’s gotten pretty dingy.

It’s a dry clean only sweater, and I normally have it dry cleaned at the beginning of the season, and then threaten body parts if he gets it dirty!  We only have 1 dry cleaner in our town, and it costs me about $30 (not including gas to drive there) to get it cleaned, so I Febreze it the rest of the winter.  I pulled it out a couple weeks ago to take it to the dry cleaner, but I just haven’t made it there yet.  It’s been laying on top of my dryer waiting for me to take it.

My mom asked me if I’d tried Dryel, and I told her there have been many times I’ve thought about it, but I’ve been kind of afraid to try it.  If there’s a possibility of ruining something with it, I’m the person who’d do it.

So, what are your thoughts on Dryel?  I can grab a coupon for $3 off which would make the starter kit $8.99 at Walgreens.  I think Ingles has it for a couple bucks cheaper.  Have you used Dryell to clean your dry clean only clothes, and if you do what are your thoughts on the product?  Does it work or was it a waste of money?
