I'm a newbie when it comes to laundry and fabrics, so I have a question about polyester fabric. I recently purchased a new polyester dress, and I want to make sure I take care of it properly. Can polyester fabric be washed in a washing machine?
I've heard conflicting opinions on this, with some people saying it's safe to wash polyester in a washing machine while others advise against it. I don't want to risk damaging the fabric or shrinking the dress, so I thought it would be best to seek advice from those who have experience with polyester garments.
If washing my polyester dress in a machine is possible, what setting should I use? Should I opt for cold or warm water? I also wonder if I need to use any specific type of detergent or fabric softener.
Lastly, are there any additional tips or precautions I should know about when washing polyester fabric in a machine? I would really appreciate any insights or experiences you could share with me.
Thanks a bunch!
