If you’re like most people, those dry-clean-only clothes sit on their own in a separate hamper or maybe hung up at one end of your closet, just waiting for the next trip to the dry cleaners. The good news? You may be able to wash some of them at home.
WonderHowTo offers a few simple tips for deciding which dry-clean-only clothes you may be able to wash yourself and how to get the best results. First, check the label. Some say "Dry Clean Only" and you should probably take them to the cleaners. Others just say "Dry Clean" and those, you can likely do yourself.
When you’ve decided which clothes you want to try washing, test a hidden spot to make sure the dye doesn’t bleed out, wash them by hand (or maybe on a delicate cycle, depending on your washer), and then let them air dry. Hit up the full post below for more details.
