Winter is the perfect time to indulge in luxurious fabrics: cashmere, wool, silk—the works! However, as we learn all too quickly, maintaining our more delicate clothes can take a toll on our wallets, since most of them come tagged with “dry clean only” labels.
What’s more, who really wants to be constantly enveloped in perchlorethylene, the chemical most cleaners use to get your stuff spic-and-span? Try these tips to keep your delicates clean by “dry cleaning” at home.
If you’ve tried so-called “no rinse” products before, you know that such a thing doesn’t exist. However, Eucalan does the trick and then some with their Fine Fabric Wash ($7.72 on Amazon.com)! Enriched with lanolin (helps keep fabrics static free) and softly scented with either lavender, eucalyptus, grapefruit or unscented, Eucalan lets you soak your delicates for a few minutes to get stains out, then simply (and gently) squeeze and dry. That’s it!
