Going to the dry cleaners is always on my To Do list and it’ll stay there for a couple of weeks (in fact, there’s a bag in my car right now that’s been on “its way to the dry cleaners” for the past two months. Life just gets in the way, pushing back my visit. It’s times like these that I wish had the Swash Express Clothing Care System at home. The very handy device will cut your dry cleaning visits since it lets you refresh all your clothes at home in between dry cleanings.
Not that it replaces the dry cleaners because it can’t get out stains and what not, but it can spruce up your clothes after a Vegas trip since you always come home reeking of smoke. Or it’ll make your favorite outfit smell fresh after a visit to your favorite Chinese restaurant where you come home smelling like your dinner. All you have to do is place an item of clothing inside the machine, insert one of its Swash Pods cup and then press start. Then your items will be restored and ready to wear in just 10 minutes.
Besides removing light wrinkles and taking out orders, the machine can also restore an item’s fit that can usually be lost after wear without pilling or fading your clothing item. It’s safe on most fabrics, including cotton, cashmere, sequins, velvet, suede, fur, wool. denim and polyester. It works with a standard wall outlet and doesn’t use water or needs installation or assembly. You’ll probably thinking a machine like this costs a fortune, but it’s quite affordable (considering it’ll cut your dry cleaning bill by half) at only $499.99 at Blomindales.
