Most rayon garments should be dry-cleaned, but some types of fabric and garment construction are such that they can be hand or machine washed. Use mild lukewarm or cool suds. Gently squeeze suds through the fabric and rinse in lukewarm water. Do not wring or twist the article. Smooth or shake out the article and place on a non-rust hanger to dry. Rayon sweaters should be laid flat to dry. Press the article while damp on the wrong side with the iron at a moderate setting. If finishing on the right side is required, a press cloth should be used. Between wearing, rayon articles may be pressed with a cool iron.
