Having clothing dry-cleaned is not only expensive, it also can be bad for the environment. But you have no choice but to dry-clean items like delicate cashmere sweaters, right? Actually, you can machine wash those, too. Just choose the delicate setting and place the sweaters inside a mesh bag, which will prevent them from snagging inside the machine. When you’re done washing, roll up the freshly washed sweaters in towels, then lay flat to dry.
