  • Its a velvet type material on top and a sheer over silky type thing on bottom will I still be able to hand wash it and can I use any type of detergent or soaps? someone gave her something sticky and its on both parts of the dress not really noticeable unless you know where to look though

  • I successfully machine was "dry clean only" clothing all the time - regular detergent, cold water, gently cycle, and don't use the dryer. I've never had any problems.
