For years I dry-cleaned my wool and cashmere sweaters, paying $3.50 each time. I saw a TV segment that convinced me to try it at home. Not only is it cheaper, but there are no chemicals in your sweater, and it comes out so much softer. This will work for merino, cashmere, and all fine sweaters.

Total Time: 10 minutes, plus drying time

Source: Internet and TV show segment

Supplies:

  • baby shampoo
  • sweater
  • air drying rack

Steps:

  1. Soak sweater in lukewarm water with a few drops of baby shampoo.
  2. Swish the sweater around-do not rub!

  4. Rinse the sweater until the water runs clear.
  5. Pat out as much water as possible. Do not wring the sweater.
  6. Place the sweater on a big bath towel.
  7. Roll the towel up.
  8. Pat out as much water as possible.
  9. Place the sweater on a flat surface where air can get all around it. Gently shape it. I put it on the top of my air-drying rack.
  10. Enjoy your clean, soft sweater!

For a recently widowed senior, this advice is just what I needed. I'm not "helpless," but appreciate a good idea for saving things I enjoy.
