Washing a Comforter

comforterI am thinking about purchasing a comforter which is 70% polyester, 30% cotton and it has the word algodon after cotton. I would very much like to know if I can wash this combination as the manufacturer label does say dry clean only, but I like to freshen items up to get rid of the “store smell”. Please if you have any information on this fabric combination I would appreciate a reply. Thanks so much
I have a hand wash cycle on my energy efficient washing machine.

Hi Miriam,
I really don’t know what will happen if you wash this item marked Dry Clean Only. You will need to be willing to risk a change in the fabric. With this much polyester in the cover, I doubt if it will shrink, but it could lose the surface finish or the batting could bunch up. Bottom line, if you are willing to try it, you can see what will happen.
