Go out and buy the Woolite dryer sheets. They are dry cleaning at home sheets. I have used them on my suit, DHs suit, work pants, skirts, etc. They work REALLY well. They will make everything fresh and I am pretty sure they remove surface stains as well.

I was going to suggest something similar. Dryel is another at home dry cleaning brand. My Boyfriend or Best Friend uses it and it works. I think we bought ours at wally mart but i’m sure you could find it at any store, maybe even the grocery store.

@Krises: yes, you can find them at the grocery store! I don’t know if they are Dryel but the Woolite ones are there and I’m pretty sure there is at least another brand…

OP – if you have a Harris Teeter/Safeway/Giant near you, they definitely carry them

This may not help you today, but you may want to look into a clothing steamer.  My husband steams all his suits and it works better and faster than an iron.  The upright kind usually go for $40 to $50.  To freshen, I would just use a Shout wipe for any minor stains, spritz everything lightly with Febreeze (inside and out) and then tumble it in the dryer for 10-15 mins on low.

@daniellemybelle: no ironing necessary. I wouldn’t worry about shrinking. Like I said, I’ve used it on several suits and haven’t had any issues with shrinking and afterwards it looked very non-wrinkly.

I use dryel alllll the time and it definately does not shrink clothes. If you take the clothes out of the dryer right as they are done, you will not have to iron. But if you leave them in there for a long time, they will (I’ve learned that lesson a few times lol)

I agree with the PP that suggested a steamer. I have one and use it every single day. It is freaking amazing!
