Shrinking Dry Clean Only Capris

I have a Dry Clean Only White Capri Pant from BEBE. The Shell is made of 70% Linen 27% Viscose, & 3% spandex. The lining is 95% Poly & 5% Spandex. Do you think I can cold water wash it in a front loader hand wash/gentle cycle? I would like it to shrink just a little. Any tips are appreciated.

I don't think this will make them shrink, but I use Dryell Dryer Sheets for my dry cleaning and have had great success. However, I do send my dry cleaning to the regular dry cleaner after around two or three times after using Dryell. I don't think Dryell has been totally perfected yet for home use and the professional dry cleaner is good to use in between.

That said, I would be careful with your capris.

You might try using Woolite with cold water and hand washing them, then line drying them.

I wash my linen products like with and have had good luck but I never put them in the dryer.

I'm not sure, but I think Viscose is like Rayon and you have to always be careful of shrinkage with Rayon.

Good luck!
