*breathes sigh of relief* Thanks softgrey! That's what I was hoping, but I thought I ought to get a second opinion before actually trying it, as everything I've Dryel-ed thus far has come out looking smooth and unwrinkled as the proverbial baby's ***. (I didn't think I could bear to relive the time my oh-so-artfully crumpled Margiela skirt came back from the cleaner's steamrolled flat. )

getting untraditional clothing dry cleaned is always risky......

it never comes back quite the same...
i spend a long time explaining things to my dry cleaner...

My favourite summer shoes-a pair of espadrilles with a sort of crocheted strap across the feet-accidentally knocked over red wine. Thankfully it isn't that big, but still. They're a cream with a purple spot.

Oh dear ... I think this one's unrecoverable I was hanging up clothes when I saw that, unbeknownst to me, my favorite polka dot silk chiffon skirt had developed a horizontal rip

RIP

That's #4 so far this season ...

Pilling on my Polos, my favorite sweaters (one's vintage and the wool is kind of standing out!) and pilling on my hoodie and I shaved it and now it has a small hole!

i had a basic black 3/4 sleeved top that i wore at least once weekly for over 2.5 years. i couldn't fix a small hole in the middle of the left sleeve, the material will rip if i try to mend it. and since i'm fair, the hole was very obvious, almost like a white spot. so i "fixed" it by painting a coin-sized spot on my arm where the hole is with a waterproof black marker and voila! i did this until the hole got progressively bigger and i couldn't hide it anymore
