    Default HELP with Dry Clean Only tags

    When a clothing tag says "dry clean only" is it possible to wash it in the washing machine or hand wash it without damaging it??

    Specifically the item of clothing is my fiances trousers (from a suit) which he will be wearing on Saturday as a best man in a wedding.. so if i damage them i'm pretty sure he won't be very impressed. Does anyone think its safe to wash them? any experiences??

    I always put my "dry clean only" stuff on the gentle cycle and hang dry. Have not ruined anything yet.

    I wash most of my dry clean only in the washing machine.

    I have some expensive dry clean only clothing, I washed one and it got ruined (I did however put it in the dryer, which was probably the problem). Now I just febreze them and pay for dry cleaning once in a while

    It depends what it is.... silk can loose it's dye if washed in a washing machine, depending on the finish, however I chuck mine in the washer, same with cashmere. However, I shrink lambswool sweaters when I wash them even on the most delicate cycle!

    How did the trousers turn out?
