I have a nylon jacket that's dry clean only, oh and it's down. I thought I'd wash it with gentle soap and hang dry and then after put it in dryer to fluff. Thank you for any tips.

I've tried cleaning and drying a down jacket exactly the way you're thinking of doing it. I washed the jacket on gentle cycle and this seemed to work fine. Then I hung the jacket on the clothes line to dry and that was a disaster! All the down formed a hard clump at the bottom of the jacket.

The parts that were divided into little squares - the down formed hard clumps there too. I tried putting the dry jacket in the dryer with a couple of tennis balls, but that didn't work. I finally re-washed the jacket, let it spin dry and then put the wet jacket in the dryer with two tennis balls. I think it turned out pretty well!

They sell dry clean kits in the grocery store. They include their special cleaning solvent and a bag to place the item in.

Much cheaper then buying another coat if washing ruins it.
