Do I really need to dry clean this sweater?

Posted under Women at the top by Marcus Pottea on October 12th, 2013 2:51 am

I just purchased a knit sweater that is made of 60% viscose rayon, 35% polyester and 5% wool. The tag says dry clean only, but I don’t want to spend that much to clean it. Would it hurt the sweater if I put it in a delicates bag and ran it on a gentle cycle or just hand-washed it?

Thanks.

I would dry clean it. You may ruin it if you wash it. Call local dry cleaners in your area and get prices for cleaning. They may have cleaning specials that may help you with the high cost of dry cleaning.

  3. I don’t know much about viscose rayon, but I do know wool definitely needs to be dry cleaned. You could probably put it in a mesh bag and toss it in the dryer on air fluff, with a dryer sheet in with it, and that would freshen it up a little. But I wouldn’t get it wet.

  4. If you try washing it and ruin it, you’ll be out of a sweater. I’d spend the money for a fry cleaner
