Is it safe to wash pants that are labeled Dry Clean Only?

Is it safe to wash pants that are 73% rayon, 23% nylon, 5% spandex?   The label says dry clean but I have been told that I should be able to wash them myself.

Thanks!   M

    Hi Victoria,

    No, it isn’t completly safe to wash anything that is labeled Dry Clean Only. The pant may shrink, the color may run, any interfacing may come out. The pant manufacturer put the dry clean only label in for a reason and to be safe, follow the label directions.

    Normally garments with the fiber content of your pant can be washed but evidently not your pant.

    Hope this helps!
