Machine Washable?!?!?

I'm on the fence about synthetic fabrics. On one hand, synthetics can really make life easier with laundry being easier and quicker to do. On the other - there is great environmental impact with any manmade fibre.

But when I came across these machine washable tuxedo tails I was definately surprised! Machine washable tuxedo tails?! I swear it. Even the label says so.

So what did I do? I put it in the washing machine of course. It came out cleaned like a dream. A simple steaming to remove wrinkles and voila!

Yay for manmade fabrics...sometimes :-)

I would never have thought that tails could be washed! Brave step to throw them in the washing machine!
