Handwashables
Why do pretty club clothes always have to require hand-washing?

This thought crosses my mind often. Because PVC is so damn sexy and glamorous until you're slaving over a water filled sink to clean it.

I don't own any PVC. Seems anything stretchy or tight fitting is hand-wash only.

"I don't own any PVC"

I think you should. ;)

like i said above to cagekitten, i toss pvc and most of my other "hand washable" stuff in the washer. always on the cold setting, and i never throw it in the dryer, but doing that hasn't ruined anything that i can recall.

Conspiracy

Handwash only clothing is a conspiracy to make us all fat.

Handwashing is boring and time consuming, so eventually you get lazy, and stop buying the sexy tight clothes, and get non-handwash-only stuff. Then you realize the non-handwash-only-non-sexy clothes cover up your flaws, giving you carte blanche to misbehave and go off your diet and stop working out. Just for a little while, you tell yourself.

And then you get fat.

And you have to get more bigger, non-sexy clothes. Soon, you're wearing all cotton, and the only lycra you own is in your undies, trying desperately to restrain your gut. You stand in your closet, looking at tall the PVC, and leather, and stretchy stuff you used to wear, cursing the day you decided that handwashing just wasn't worth it.

Re: Conspiracy

It is my destiny to wear only sweats by the time I am 45.

Re: Conspiracy

That is, when you're not naked in my bushes?

And please tell me you'll have gold-plated zodiac medallions for each outfit.

Re: Conspiracy

Of course. I gotta fit some stereotype at all times!

I need to look into buying whatever brand you're wearing. Because I go through PVC pants like crazy and they never last more than a year.

ditto what she said.

I don't hand wash anything.

Laundering PVC.

1. Turn it inside out.
2. Put it in a delicates mesh bag.
3. Set washer to delicate/gentle, cold/cold.
4. Hang/lay flat to dry.

I do that with all my club clothes. No casualties thus far.

no more hand washing!

You're my hero!

good for other stretchy, "hand wash only" fabrics, too.

Because of all the semen stains on them.
