Hand Wash Dry Clean Only Clothing

If you have items that you have been dry cleaning (say, a silk blouse), a way to rejuvenate them is to wash them by hand. That will freshen them up by removing cleaning fluid buildup and make the whites white.

You do not want to do this with any pleated clothing, the pleats will not stay fresh looking, they will look "frumpy". Anything else should work.

This is a good idea and I do the same! Dry cleaners are simply too expensive (and the use of chemicals most of them use is really not very healthy) for most items that truly can be washed by hand, hung dry and ironed including pleated items! The only items I've paid a dry cleaner to clean for years and years and years now are dress coats and woolens. ;-)
