Is there a good way to wash toulle tu tu skirts?

I have 2 daughters who have multiple tutu styled skirts with tulle on them and I've tried everything to wash and dry them without the bottoms getting ratty and stuck together and in generally nasty looking...... does anyone have a trick , method or even a special detergent or softner they use to avoid that happening

  • I think I wouldn't wash them. Just spot clean them with a wet rag and a little detergent.

  • You can spot clean them & then steam them in the bathroom - this also helps get wrinkles out.

  • I dont know what kind you have (handmade or store bought). My dd has several she wears to school which were store bought from childrens place and old navy. I wash them in the delicate cycle with woolite, and hand dry them.

  • thanks girls, I"ve hand washed them with liquid fabric softner but not the woolite so I might try that or the dryel. and the steaming them in the bathroom is a great idea too. I have some of both handmade and store bought and the problem with not washing the storebought ones are the linings . particularly my infant has one from gymboree and it has a silk lining and she had a diaper explosian all over it last night and I need to do something with it. but even the hand washing had left the others a little nappy so thanks for the advice
