From the editor: While speed strolling in the snow during a busy fashion week recently, the mild sprinkles of snow found their way to many of my favorite wools and cashmeres-and left the not so favorable “wet” scent behind. As someone that’s super sensitive to scent, I try to avoid the synthetic dry cleaning.fragrance- especially on my favorite winter staples. So, here’s what I did to refresh the favorite cashmeres without the major hassle.
A few years ago while visiting family in the burbs, I tried out Dryel : an at-home dry cleaning remedy for the first time. I threw in a few test pieces in the bag, and after a 30 minute drying cycle, voila! fresh scent and fluffy freshened sweaters. The at-home cleanser did the job! Easy to use: 15 minutes,to refresh, 30 minutes for a deep clean.
Though I still prefer to manually do laundry + the dryel job while visiting in the burbs, I refreshed my favorite cashmeres after NYFW at the local NYC laundromat’s dryer. You can put a couple of items with similar colors at a time in the handy drycleaner bag, but I prefer to put large items like a coat by itself. No synthetic scent or drycleaning bill, and all fresh in a New York hour.
Here’s part of my snow day outfit during NYFW fw16 shows in february.
