Great bargain in the charity shop this morning - a lovely Cos navy top for £6. Thought i'd check the washing instructions and it says dry clean only. (well it doesnt say that, it's got the symbol for washing with a cross through it).
Top is in two parts, top is a viscose/spandex mix, the bottom floaty part is cupro, which some googling tells me is a type of cotton. looks a bit like silk.
Is there really any reason this top won't stand up to a gentle hand wash? It would cost more to have it dry cleaned than the top cost me in the first place!
