I felt lots of things. I always place the item in a zipped close pillow protector or lingerie bag (keeps the fibres out of the drain.) In the bag with my item I put 2-3 clean new tennis balls for agitation. THen, in the washing machine itself, I put some old jeans for additional agitation. YOu have to be patient, and you have to keep checking because it takes how long it takes, and then it SHRINKS.
