You'd have thought of it, I just happened to have a different experience to fall back on. My DDs prom and other dance dresses were machine wash and dry because I prewashed and dried the fabric. That's what came to mind for me, and someone I worked with who refused to dry clean her silk tops because she figured they'd been using silk long before dry cleaning was invented.
