Washing your holiday finery? Be careful! Make sure to button or zip beaded or sequined garments completely and turn them inside out so that the embellishments are protected. Use the gentle cycle with cold water and a detergent designed for hand washing. Never put sequined garments in the dryer - the beading could melt. The woven garments can be hung to dry, while knitted items should be dried flat.

If you're saving some cash by ironing at home instead of sending clothes to the dry cleaners, here are some simple rules regarding clothing fabric: Cotton or silky rayon should be ironed right side up. Polyester, either way. All other items should be ironed inside out.
