My Laundry Question
I have a blazer that is 70% triacetate and 30% polyester. The lining is 100% acetate. Do I really need to dry clean this? I would like to launder this if possible.

It is not a stain - just normal laundering - body odor, etc. It is cream colored so it needs more frequent cleaning... I don't have much else to say but I apparently need 200 characters, so I will just babble on.....!
- None yet - would like to try to launder it - hoping for a good result!

Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:
The problem with your jacket is the acetate lining. Acetate wrinkles easily and should never be ironed at high heat. The body of the jacket - triacetate and polyester - can be laundered at home using cool water and a gentle detergent. Wash by hand or on the delicate cycle in your washer. Do not dry at high heat. If you must use a dryer, tumble for only a few minutes on low to remove wrinkles and then air dry.
