I have such a strong reaction to dry cleaners chemicals, that I simply stopped buying clothes that had to be dry cleaned. It just was not worth it no matter how beautiful the apparel was, or how much I really wanted something. Even the smell of dry cleaned clothes that someone else may be wearing, can cause me to get an extreme headache.
I am thrilled that I have discovered a way to dry clean my clothes at home and not get sick! I have had so much success with this method, that I look for clothes to dry clean just so I can dance by my dryer.

Additional Notes about Dry Cleaning this Particular Cape
I personally made this Dr. Orpheus Cosplay Costume Cape for my son for Halloween in 2013. There is a large emblem on the back of the cape that I had to cut from satin fabric pieces.
The real beauty of the Woolite Sheets is that they did not fade or fray even the emblem. It came out of the dryer clean and just as vibrantly beautiful as it was the day it was made.
Since I enjoy making specialty costumes, it is so very awesome to have a trustworthy method to dry clean them. They are truly a lot more reliable than any dry cleaner and they don't leave strong chemical odor on the costumes or clothes. They actually smell good!
