I'm not talking ££ that you factor in the cost of dry cleaning to get the best from.
But one season fashion items that if I don't get them cleaned somehow , will look grubby , but if I do, I can bet it'll get marked the very next day.
I bought DD a pale pink bomber jacket from Forever 21. It was £18. She loves it and she's worn it 3-4 times this week. It's 100% poly, and lightly padded so I think that is the reason for Dry Clean- the padding will get all lumpy and uneven if washed/
Should've looked at the label <<sigh>> but could I wash it in warm water , not twist or wring , and dry it flat. (It can go in a low tumble drier to puff it up a bit)
