My mil spends a small fortune buying clothes for my kids. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful and it fulfills her need to shop. But, so much of it is fancy little items and most say to be washed by hand. Ya, not going to happen. 

Does anyone actually wash by hand?


Went to bed last night and this post took right off. Thanks for all the responses :)

Woohoo! First feature post. Thanks everyone!

I think the only thing I wash by hand are my tutus. Only because a washing mashine would ruin them.

Yup I do that too. Most people think I'm weird, I don know many people who use them.

 "wash by hand" or "dry clean only" = "gentle cycle, cold wash" in my house

Really? I just flip it inside out and use the delicate cycle. I haven't had anything ruined yet.

No, that translates to " gentle cycle" here. My mom hand washes shit all the time though.
