Wash in non-bio detergent, don't overload the washing machine and don't use fabric conditioner.

Dry cleaning isn't exactly gentle or easy on your clothing, either. It can also cause damage, shrinkage, and color-fading.

Bed linens and table linens too.


It is not necessary - and way too expensive! - to send everything but "underwear, t-shirts, socks, and towels" to the dry cleaners. Not to mention inconvenient.

yeah seriously, same here.
my clothes never get ruined. I dry clean nothing. ever.......I got better things to do.
I don't use a dryer though.

I may spend some money on my clothes when I do go shopping but I still have shirts, jeans, shorts, etc. from several years ago that are still in style and look great. It pays to buy one good shirt vs. three throw aways. I'm not talking about spending hundreds on Burberry or Versace, but place like Express and Kenneth Cole always have done very well for me.

Wow. I can't even imagine your dry cleaning bills.

I have one blouse I send to the cleaners only because I can never get it pressed properly. Everything else I wash at home, either in the machine or by hand. My clothes last for years, and it's much cheaper.
