I have been told that you can wash your wool garments at home with Woolite in cold water. I have never done it and neither has my mother or grandmother. They have always taken the wool clothes to the dry cleaners. The problem is that I can not afford the dry cleaners and the last time I handled something that had just been dry cleaned my hands itched really bad, so I don't think I will be able to wear my clothes at all if they are treated with these chemicals. Have you ever used woolite on wool? How did it go? Any tips?
