I have washed several 'dry clean only' items in the past. I just always used the delicate or hand wash cycle, and cold water. You do run the risk of ruining the time though.

If it has a sash, you can try that. Put it in a lingerie bag, or if you don't have one, tie it up in an old pillow case, and give it a try. Just don't put it in the dryer. If the sash comes out okay, you can probably do the robe.
Good luck to you!

Yes, I wash all 'dry clean only' clothes. Remember, wool, linen, silk etc were all invented before dry cleaners. And synthetics were invented specifically to go into washing machines. I do everything on cold/delicate.

The tricky part is the ironing/pressing, but the savings is worth that effort. There are tailors tricks for ironing too, but that is news for another time.

You can wash the robe using a mild detergent and cold water. Do not put it in the dryer as the acrylic in the fabric will sometimes shrink.

Wash on gentle, line dry. If it is a heavy robe, you may have to run through the spin cycle more than once.

Do not hang. Roll in towels to blot excess water then lay out flat to dry.
