“Do not use bleach, powder and soap. Fabrics such as wool and silk do not tolerate the effects of alkali. Therefore, it is much safer to use special liquid products and gels for washing delicate products and wash them in the “Delicate Wash” mode, advises Kalkutina. - But if the color of the dress is bright, contrast, for example, there are combinations of white and black, red and black, do not wash the dress at home - this is equivalent to killing things. Pass it into the caring hands of an expert. Moreover, the cost of the service of cleaning clothes is not at all high. And if on the label it is indicated that the thing cannot be washed, immediately take it to save it in dry cleaning. There is no other option. ”
