Yes People, Just another friendly tip for you guys, don't judge a book by its color!. Yes color, sometimes when you wash/dry clean a garment, its more vibrant. Some pieces are really special, so it requires a delicate approach to washing. I trust Woolite and Dreft soap to soak, the hang dry. Always be careful with drying in a machine, just because theres a greater risk of damaging the garment. Shrinking is a risk with dry cleaning, and so is stretching. just keep in mind the little twirks you might have to apply to the piece in order to make it just right for you.
