Bags to separate garments

Price: $8.99

Use them every time you put the washing machine to avoid friction. The editor says: If you still don't know what can and can't be washed at home, make sure with the Q-tip test. In a part of the garment that cannot be seen, put a little soap and water, and rub with a Q-tip; if the fabric fades, then it does have to go to the dry cleaner.
