TIME'S UP! GIVE AWAY: Woolite Dry Cleaner's Secret

A couple weeks ago I was sent a full size sample box of Woolite Dry Clean at Home by Dry Cleaner's Secret to review. I must confess that when I was approached through email to review this product I was quite hesitant. First off, I never purchase anything that is "dry clean only." I have perhaps three items of clothing that are such--a suit and a linen shirt. I haven't even ever worn the linen shirt because my husband said it made me look like a pioneer woman. No, not the Pioneer Woman (as I'd do anything to be as gorgeous as her), but rather a woman traveling cross country in the mid 1800s kind of pioneer woman. Bleh.

Woolite Dry Clean at Home by Dry Cleaner's Secret promised to "freshen my garments and take care of less serious spots, saving me time and money" from going to a professional dry cleaner. What is even greater about this product is that I didn't have a dryer bag to mess with--just a cleaning cloth which I could throw away after using. Plus, Woolite Dry Cleaner's Secret Cleaning Cloths "are environmentally safe" and non-toxic and do not contain the toxic chemical "perchloroethylene used by some dry cleaners" according to the accompanying instructions.

Well, you know me. I'm not just going to do a review and say it's a nice product if it is not. I give my honest opinion...especially when high on caffeine. I'm just sayin'. I assume you're the same as me and dislike wasting your money and time with a useless or inferior product.

So, I whipped out the culprits:

The accompanying instructions states: "Woolite Dry Cleaner's Secret formula is especially effective in cleaning oil-based stains, such as makeup, lipstick, mayonnaise and salad dressing." Well, I put this product to the test...

And sure enough Woolite Dry Cleaner's Secret removed the cheap lipstick and salad dressing in just three easy steps!

My overall opinion is that Woolite Dry Cleaner's Secret is easy to use, wastes little, and is perfect for in between visits to a professional dry cleaner. I even added my suit to the dryer with the linen shirt and the suit came out wrinkle-free and fresh smelling.

Now here's the best part--Woolite Dry Cleaner's Secret has given me two extra full size products to give away to my readers! Each box contains 6 individually wrapped cleaning cloths and cleans up to 24 garments. These cloths can be used on almost any Dry Clean Only garment. They can also be used to freshen small household items such as small pillows and afghans. All you have to do to enter the Give Away is tell me whether or not I look like a pioneer woman. You know, like an 1800s kind of woman you'd see traveling in a covered wagon. Come on, give me your honest opinion!

Oh noooo . . . more like the saloon mistress. So, I guess, if someone persuaded you to leave your profession and travel about the plains you could be a pioneer women, but certainly you'd have to leave that fancy unsensible pretty blue for a more hardy and dowdy looking piece (naturally the jeans would have to be replaced in either scenario).

Anyway, I totally want to win because I have one dry clean only skirt that I have NEVER washed (and I've had it like 5 years . . .) but after it was doused in spit up Sunday I thought, "Maybe, just maybe, it is finally time"

I've got to win!!! I have a black vest that I bought 2nd hand, I had NO idea that it was dry clean only and it's dirty!!!! It needs a bath, but I refuse to take it to the dry cleaner and spend more on the cleaning then I did on the vest!!!
Hubby may be right to some extent about the whole Pioneer Woman thing going on, but then that makes him the Pioneer man and he'll have to load up the wagon and saddle up them there ol' horses!!!

Laurie said...

Do you look like a PW? Nope, no way. You need a skirt to wear with it!

Mindee@ourfrontdoor said...

Good grief, no. You do not look like a pioneer woman. That is why we do not ask husbands for fashion critiques.

Rhea said...

Add a skirt, I agree, but yet, that shirt looks like it's out of the 1800's. Now, I'd LOVE to look like THE PIONEER WOMAN, I totally agree.

Cool giveaway!

PS- I live in NYC and just paid 12.50 to dry clean 1 dress.
