Vogue says “wash your stuff!”

An article in this month’s Vogue states that many people are washing their designer clothing in WATER! even when the labels instruct to “dry clean only.” This does not surprise me since I am an (almost) fearless proponent of good old fashioned soap and water and I am not a fan of dry cleaning chemicals.

Actually, the article’s theme is more toward urging us to buy expensive and savvy new high tech electronic washing machines. But I think my low tech savvy brain works nearly as well. Just add water!

    I used Spray and Wash to remove a stain on a linen blouse …the stain is gone but the Spray and Wash left ring around where the spray was and I CANNOT remove this ring ….PLEASE HELP ME !

      Oh, gosh! I am sorry; I have never used that product and I have no idea what to tell you. It would depend on what the original stain was and how that product reacted chemically with it. I’d be heartbroken, too.
      Perhaps you should consult with your dry cleaners; they may be able to advise. Good luck. But, I’d love to know what you decide and how it works out.
