This week's Ask The Experts...

I have several new and vintage Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dresses that are identified as 100% silk (silk jersey?) It says dry clean only, but can they be hand washed/delicate cycle at home?

Hi Jennifer, how exciting! I bet they are beautiful. Follow the below recipe for washing delicates. If there are stains you will want to pre-treat with Stain Solution. I would recommend hand washing and make sure to lay flat and in shape to dry.


Steam after.

Please note: do not wash any DVF rayon or viscose items - they will fit a 2 year old after....based on personal experience.

Happy Laundering!

Hi Gwen,

Thank you so very much for your quick and thoughtful response! I had to laugh about washing the rayon or viscose dresses because, yup, I did that once before too! Comforting that I'm in good company.

Thanks again for the recipe! Absolutely could not exist without The Laundress products!

All my best,

So no rayon or viscose fabric are hand washable? Will they shrink even in cold water? Thanks!
