And next time think about whether to do as it says.
When I was emptying my wardrobe yesterday I came across the white trouser suit I first - and last -wore for Daughter's wedding in 2003.
With damp stains on the legs it was fit for nothing. I couldn't wear it as it was nor could I give it to a charity shop.
So I decided to wash it. Which is when I noticed it was Dry Clean Only.
But who pays any attention to those labels?
It turns out I should have.
Not only has it shrunk but the marks are still there, looking worse if anything.
And the moral of this story is: don't keep things for 'best'; if you have something lovely to wear then wear it. And read labels before washing.
