How should I wash or clean these garments? - a silk Tibetan shirt, a lambswool cardigan, a guernsey wool jumper, raw denim jeans
I am reluctant to pay for dry cleaning every time, and don't trust them not to mess up clothes sometimes. The web has conflicting information on how and whether to clean things, so I'm hoping to get some good points of view on what to do about these things.
a silk Tibetan shirt - This is 100% silk shirt with but the weave is quite coarse and tough. I suppose it would be 'raw silk'. It's a golden colour, not been washed before.
a lambswool cardigan - This is soft lambswool, quite loosely woven. Not been washed.
a guernsey wool jumper - a genuine guernsey jumper
, handloomed wool, tightly woven together. Company says dry clean only. Been dry cleaned once.
raw denim jeans - these are cheap raw denim jeans. Look good, but starting to show creases. Not been washed. Label says wash as little as possible. Would like to know how best to get them looking 'flat'. iron?
How should I safely wash and dry these things and are there any you really need to dry clean?
