Restoring The Softness

Dear Andy, I have a champagne-colored 100% polyester (face) coat that has a 100% rubber back. It was made in Bulgaria and I bought it six or seven years ago. The last time I washed it I put it in the dryer at too high a temperature. The result is that it now crackles like paper when I wear it.
Is there anything I can do to restore its softness? It says on the care instructions not to use fabric softener but, at this point, what do I have to lose?
I hate to give up on this coat because I really like it.

Dear Annie: Wear the coat the way it is and forget about the way it sounds. If you really like it, wear it and enjoy it. No one on the outside of the coat will know what lurks underneath. Stay warm and Good Luck, Andy
