List of What Can & Can't be Washed

So I decided to try to be helpful by making a master list of what can & can't be washed.

Thank you everyone for your input! I will try & keep this list as up to date as I can through out the year.

Please comment with any prints you've had problems with or ones that you've had machine or hand wash success. I will add them to list.

General Advice

♥ Never dry clean screenprints, hand wash instead
♥ Don't dry clean things with pearls or rhinestones
This Pink Music Print can be cold machine washed on the gentlest setting
♥Spray starch on bows that can't be removed on dresses to prevent floppy-ness after washing. Spray, you arrange the bow the way you'd like, lay flat to dry and voila! you have a perky bows again!
♥Never use Oxyclean on a lolita garment
♥Don't just leave things soaking without checking, prints have been known to just melt off
♥Red and black tend to run more, and very dark blue too.
♥If you want to check weather or not it will run, wet a small spot (that is not too obvious), and then dab a white paper towel on it, see if the color run.
♥If you're still a little worried about colour's running always use cold water.
♥DO NOT hang it in a place directly under sunlight, it will make stuff fade.
♥DO NOT dry clean screen print.
♥DO NOT wash in warm water, not even lukewarm.
♥If the print runs, avoid heat and dryers! Try handwashing in cold water 2-3 more times, add half a cup of vinegar to the wash. (The vinegar preserves the print and doesn't smell when you mix it with detergent)   
♥Always remove anything detachable (bows etc) before taking to the dry cleaners. however secure they seem, dry cleaners will lose them!
♥Baby's blacks and Meta's newer prints often run
♥Baby's crepe like fabric (VR, Paris Windows etc) seems more colour fast then their plain cottons
♥Some faded colours can be restored with dye, if the item is one solid colour (eg. Boleros)
♥Always ask the cleaners if they are able to clean a dress. Some cleaners don't know how to clean velveteen.
♥If you use stain remover, be careful when rubbing the fabric together as the friction can cause pilling.
