My husband finally got a work wardrobe and I'm at a loss on how to wash his dress shirts/pants/ties. I ruined a pair of his pants by washing and drying them (they were %100 cotton). We have a pretty old washer and dryer (we live in an apartment so no updated appliances). The washing machine has a regular cycle for heavy, normal, and light loads. It also has a perm press cycle. The dryer has a de-wrinkle cycle, regular cycle, and perm press cycle. How should I wash his dress pants? How often? What about dress shirts?
As for ties, he recently stained one of them (100% polyester) and I tried getting it out but now it has a water stain. How do I fix that?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
