Hello dear readers,
Yesterday when I was dealing my hand wash laundry and wondered how other sewists deal with theirs.
I like washing all my handmade items by hand with exception my jersey dress and top as I wear them so often I would spend more time washing than wearing it lol.
I know most of my items could go in the washing machine but I prefer to be in the safe side. I also think save energy and water. Not very practical I admit but it’s an extra care I’m willing to take.
I did a small research on how to wash delicates in the washing machine and Good Housekeeping magazine recommends using a mesh bag and Catherine use a pillowcase. The magazine also recommends that ‘silk, satin, or chiffon are set on delicate, hand wash, or gentlest cycle, cold water, and a mild detergent like Woolite. Selecting the shortest spin cycle and dry items flat, away from sunlight.’
