What you should and shouldn’t dry clean

Sometimes we may get into the habit of buying a garment and just chucking it in the wash without considering the care instructions. Here’s a list of fabrics that should be dry cleaned rather than machine washed:

  • Silk
  • Acetate
  • Velvet
  • Wool

The following items can be machine washed (With care)

  • Cotton
  • Linen
  • Cashmere
  • Polyester
  • Acrylic
  • Nylon

Our best advice to you is that if you do want to machine wash something, do so in a cold cycle with a low spin speed. Hang your items up on a coat hanger to air dry and hold it’s shape.

When in doubt, bring your items to Ashby’s Dry Cleaning!
