Just came back from our one and only local dry cleaners with my thrift store find... a suede and sherpa coat. The lady behind the counter said it would cost $133.00 to clean it??

Anyone try the 'in dryer' dry cleaning bags (Dry-El?) I've heard about?

What are your thoughts....

I haven't used those dryer dry cleaning kits for suede or sherpa, but I did use it on a trench coat that was dry clean only and it worked fine for that.

Melody,,, good gosh $133 to clean the coat,,, dang,, you could buy a new one for that kind of money.
Have you tried going on-line to see how to hand clean suede as well as wool fleece? I think there is a spray on suede lether cleaner... if you have a Tack-n-Feed store or Western wear store... they may carry products to clean your jacket... I have always thought you are suppose to use a special brush to clean suede...(think of it as brushing a horse) to rough up the suede.
As for the wool fleece,, I would think a barely damp sponge with mild laundry cleaner (think Ivory or Woollite) and just rub it a bit,,, and then with a clean (water) wet rag wipe over the area to remove the soap.
Let us know what you find out about cleaning your fabulous jacket.

Gosh....I still have it hanging up on the hall rack---It's a beautiful coat just not very clean tho.

Thanks for the suggestion Grace-We do have a feed store a few miles from here--Today, is run errands day so I'll have hubby stop in so we can check it out.

Take care Grace and have a good weekend.
