After being massively let down by virtually every dry cleaner in my neighborhood (clothes returned with holes or discoloration that made them look like they'd been acid-washed) and spending a small fortune in the process, I've started handwashing everything I can. These days, pretty much all my knitwear goes into my bathroom sink along with a couple of capfuls of this Wool & Cashmere Shampoo by the Laundress. It's free of harsh chemicals, leaves sweaters really soft, and is laced with cedar extracts that smell amazing and also act as a natural moth repellent. If you've never handwashed a sweater before, click here to watch a step-by-step video on how to do it.
(PS: Though the Laundress girls suggest soaking garments for two hours, I tend to get impatient. In my experience, 15 minutes or so is fine.)
