Now, at the end of a season, I make sure all the clothes and outerwear are clean before they are put away for the final time. Last week, there was such an abundance of good laundry days that I could spend a whole day putting the winter things through the suds and into the sun.
I'm again ignoring "dry clean only" on blazers, handwashing and then hanging on a hanger to dry.
Washable suede gloves from Lands' End, bought on clearance last year. Smart Lands' End.
Handwashed the knitted scarves and the fur ruff from my coat. I love this sweater drying rack so much because it is all one piece and collapses into a disc for storage. I love to discover clever space savers.
I did take some wool things to a drycleaner after I hunted down a coupon online. Among those things was my father's Irish wool fisherman's sweater, bought on a trip to Ireland in the 70s and passed to me in the 90s. I think I would cry if a moth got that. Pin It
