MeFites, I need you to lay some dry cleaning knowledge on me. Do I need to take my suit skirt to the dry cleaner's if a small amount of beer was spilled on it while out with colleagues yesterday? Please help a laundry-vs.-dry-cleaning rule challenged gal figure it all out. [more inside]

Emergency Laundry Question

Emergency Laundry Question: I had some bad laundry experiences over the weekend. A dry cleaner left this awful kerosene smell in a jacket, which they tried to cover with perfume. Another laundromat over-bleached my dress shirts. How would I go about removing the odors -- of inept dry cleaning and bleach -- from these clothes tonight? [more inside]

Is there any way to get around hand washing clothes?

I recently bought a beautiful burgundy sweater coat. Unfortunately, I failed to notice the wash & care instructions, which state "Hand wash cold/separately." How exactly does one go about hand washing a large piece of clothing? The tag says "93% acrylic, 5% polyester, 2% wool." Is there any other way I can get this garment cleaned? Would Woolite be an option? Dry cleaning?

Can I hand wash 'dry clean only' wool pants?

I've got several pairs of lightweight wool dress pants from Ann Taylor. They are marked dry clean only. Suppose I hand-wash these pants in cold water and lay them flat on a towel to air-dry. Will the laundry gods punish my impudence?

Taking Care of Silk

I have quite a few silk blouses, and I'm curious about the various washing instructions. Some are dry-clean only, others hand wash/line dry, and others still are machine wash/tumble dry. (As well as other assorted combinations). Why all the variations, when all are 100% silk?
