What Clothing Items Should Not Be Washed in a Washing Machine?

Taking care of your clothes while ensuring they are clean and pleasant is important for how you present yourself to the world. While using a washing machine is an easy, straightforward way to make sure your laundry is clean without adding more stress to your day, there are some items that you should be careful not to mix in with your normal laundry.

Dry-Clean Only

If you read the tags on your outfit that needs washing, you may see a note that states it is ‘dry clean only’ or something to that effect. This means that it is a more delicate item, and the manufacturer has stated that it is unfit for being put in a washing machine with the rest of your laundry.

If you are using the services of your local laundromat, this problem can be easily solved by asking them to dry clean the item for you while you throw the rest of your laundry into a machine.

Glued-on Decorations and Beading

An item of clothing that has excessive amounts of beads or decorative features is not suited for throwing into a washing machine, as these items will often fall off during the cycle. This will both affect the quality of your garment and cause issues with the machine itself, so it is better to handwash items with beading and glued-on decorations. If you are time poor, you can also speak to your local laundry service and they may be able to help you with your garment.

Genuine Leather

If you have any items made of real leather, these are not recommended to be put in a washing machine. Washing a leather garment can cause shrinking as a reaction to the water it has been put in. If you have a spot to clean on a jacket or other leather garment, the best thing you can do is to use a baby wipe to gently rub away the issue.
