Dry Cleaning

When a garment’s label reads “DRY-CLEAN” or “DRY-CLEAN ONLY,” you probably assume you can’t wash it yourself. But in fact, most clothing manufacturers are required to list just one way to clean a garment on the tag. So if the tag says DRY-CLEAN ONLY, obey it. But if it says DRY-CLEAN, that means that is the recommended method—not the only method—and you may be able to launder the item at home.

Want to know which items can be washed at home—and how to safely do so? Check out these easy directions.
