Clothing Refresher – Saving Hundreds in Dry Cleaning Costs

* This post contains affiliate links.

At the end of March, my husband is trading his police officer uniform for a suit and tie. When we first told me about his wardrobe change, I started crunching numbers in my head. How much are new suits? Since when do you need 4 new suits?! What is dry cleaning going to cost? I asked the salesman the best way to clean suits. He informed me that suits should be cleaned like jeans. Wear them a few times, and then get them dry cleaned. Now I must tell you that my husband is the kind of guy that showers 3 times a day and wears several different outfits. (I know he is reading this shaking his head but let me review: he wears an outfit to work, changes into his uniform, then gym clothes, then comes home, showers, and wears pajamas.) He hates smelling like anything besides soap and/or cologne. When I noticed the Clothing Refresher products, I jumped at the opportunity write a product review. Between having 5 suits a week that need to smell like they were freshly laundered for my husband to wear them, and four animals that make the house smell like dirt, Clothing Refresher has come to my rescue.

Clothing Refresher comes in three different sizes and scents:

  • 10 ml = $2 USD
  • 2 fluid ounces = $8 USD
  • 4 fluid ounces = $13 USD
  • Original Scent
  • Lavender
  • Bouquet

You can also purchase a combo package of all three scents.

I absolutely love the Bouquet scent. It is the perfect scent for spring, and has a light floral touch. The Bouquet scent is perfect to spray the living and dining room area before company arrives. My husband was partial to the Original Scent. He thought it smelled clean and fresh. The Lavender was perfect for spraying linens – our bed, couch, blankets, and throw pillows. I love a calming scent before bedtime.

The lowdown:

  • Clothing Refresher is made with a unique blend of essential oils
  • Made in the USA, 100% Vegan & Natural
  • Contains no phthalates, parabens, dyes, phosphates or sulfates
  • Provides antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties
  • Can be used on clothing, linens, on furniture, as a room spray, or as aromatherapy

I must admit, I was a little nervous spraying Clothing Refresher on my husband’s brand new suit. I didn’t want it to stain. I followed the directions and sprayed the Original Scent Clothing Refresher on the bottom of his dress pants (I always test on an inconspicuous area) from a 6-inch distance. As police officers say when leaving a scene, “all clear!” It didn’t leave a stain, and the smell is there, but faint. I continued to spraying the entire suit. My husband has officially claimed the Original Scent bottle. That’s fine with me, as I am super thrilled we won’t have to spend a fortune on dry cleaning! Happy husband, happy life!

Each Clothing Refresher spray neutralizes odors instead of masking them. For instance, when my foster dogs are crated, I am washing their blankets/towels almost every other day. My fosters love to play with my dog in the backyard – you know, roll in the mulch beds and dig two-foot-deep holes. Sometimes, all I have time for is to give them quick rinse in the shower, or wiping their paws with wet paper towels, causing me to clean their bedding frequently. (Obviously, if there is noticeable dirt, I throw it in the wash – but if it just smells, I use Clothing Refresher). I like using the Lavender Clothing Refresher spray on their blankets/towels, which completely removes the “dirty dog” scent. I thoroughly sprayed Granger’s crate blanket with the Lavender scent. I was unsure that such a light fragrance was going to completely remove the smell. Low and behold, the blanket was clean with a faint lavender smell. I put the blanket back in the crate and Granger instantly went to investigate. Lavender is known to be very calming and soothing, good for my fosters that are shelter shocked and scared.

I recommend Clothing Refresher. The scents are on the light side, but I rather use something natural with a faint smell (or give a few more sprays) than something artificial and that has toxins. Besides, my husband doesn’t want to smell like lavender or flowers. A big selling point for me was that Clothing Refresher didn’t stain my husband’s expensive suits, and made them ready to wear for the next day. Each bottle is travel-friendly (especially the sample size), so my husband puts the Original Scent spray into his gym bag while I stick the Lavender spray in my handbag. I give myself a quick mist at work, and am left feeling invigorated, calm, and clean. The best attribute is that a $13 for a large bottle will save me hundreds in dry cleaning.

Thank you, Clothing Refresher!

  1. Using a similar product here in Australia and love it. It really helps! Came over from The Editor’s Journal where you left your link a little while back. Loved reading your review. How did the changeover go from uniform to suits? All smooth?

    • We are getting everything situated; suits, shirts, ties, shoes, etc. He had to go in to the new office a few days in a row, so it was an adjustment (I was thankful I had Clothing Refresher!). I wear scrubs, so I could only imagine going from throwing on a uniform to coordinating outfits. I appreciate you reading and commenting. It means so much to me. 🙂 Thank you.
