I have a Burberry trench coat I got a few years ago as a college graduation present from one of my relatives who had since then passed away. I have never sent it out to be dry cleaned ever since I got it, but it’s starting to smell a little bit.
Lately I had been wearing it outside pretty much whenever it rained, and because Taipei is so humid that I’ve contemplated getting it cleaned to prolong its life. However, because it has a lot of sentimental value to me I’m just so paranoid and afraid that if I sent it out to be dry cleaned the shop might lose it and I’d never get it back.
Because of this, I’m considering other alternatives. Turns out that there’s a product called Dryel that lets you do your own dry cleaning. Basically you put your stuff in a bag along with a sheet of cloth soaked in dry cleaning solvent, and tumble dry it for half an hour then hang it up to be air dried. Honestly it sounds pretty good but I’ve done some searches and no one seems to sell this stuff in Taipei.
So are there other alternatives you guys have tried?
