Dry clean only: Three words we dread to hear when it comes time to wash our clothes. Because let’s face it. We all know dry-cleaning can be a money-sucking entity (Hello, $20 to clean one silk blouse? Um, no thanks!).
But before you throw in the towel and decide to shell out the bills anyways, YouTube sensation Melissa Maker of Clean My Space explains, “‘Dry clean’ means you can also hand wash.” While many would find washing complicated fabrics at home nerve-racking, if cared for correctly, not only could you prolong your clothing’s life, but also save a helluva a lot of money. And who’s never up for that? Says no one.
So to help solve our clothing woes, we tapped industry’s best (i.e. Line Knitwear’s co-founder Jennifer Wells, denim designer Paige Adams-Geller, swimwear’s cool girl Beth Richards and many more) for tips and tricks on how to clean and store every material out there. From silk to cashmere to trickier ones like velvet and suede, here is your ultimate clothing care guide for everything in your closet. Consider your fashion prayers answered.
Note: The following are general guidelines. Always check the care label supplied by the manufacturer or contact the manufacturer directly if you have any concerns.
