Cleaning a Polyester Scarf

By sarah 32 16

I just bought a new red polyester scarf; it states to spot clean with mild soap. Can I hand wash it in a basin with Boraxo or what? Anyone have one? It is very lightweight and delicate. Thank you for all responses.

Everybody that I know uses Woolite to hand wash delicates, but what would be wrong with spot cleaning it? Polyester is washable.

I would simply soak it in warm water with mild dish soap, then gently swish around by hand, then shake (not wring) the water out and hang to dry. Polyester isn't delicate except if too hot of an iron is used on it. ;-)
