Love your clothes? Really love em? Well then show them you do and look after them! I've just seen a brilliant guide to taking care of vintage clothing, at Mooky Chick but I apply these methods to delicate or extra special pieces too. And most importantly, underwear.
I was going to make my own guide to hand washing but why bother when this one is brilliant?
P.S. Its a pretty sweet site too, check it out.
