It depends. I have washed light colored silk blouses and they turn out fine. Hand wash in cold water, let it drip dry from a hanger. Touch up with a cool iron if needed. Dark fabrics often bleed and fade. If there is any trim like beads or embroidery or if the item is multicolored it probably will not wash well. HTH
