Do you often hand wash delicate items such as hosiery or bras? For an easier way to wring out the water, keep a spare salad spinner under your sink! People with painful arthritic hands, or those recovering from surgery, may find it especially difficult to squeeze items dry. The center push-button or battery operated type spinners make the job very easy. Even the inexpensive crank ones work, in about a dozen turns and will hold two or three items.

Can you hand wash velvet in Woolite? I have a black velvet dress (100% rayon velvet bodice, 100% polyester crepe skirt) that I bought at a consignment shop. There are no obvious spots, but I would like to"freshen" it up. Also, I have a 100% silk dress with a 100% pure polyester lining which says "Spot clean only, do not dry clean", but I would like to wash it in Woolite and air dry also. It has some bead work, and appears to be a "Pageant" dress. Is this safe to gently soak in cold water and Woolite?
