I love this coat! OK, let me give you the background on this coat. The day after Christmas I did some thrifting with my sister and my super star girlfriend Melanie. These two ladies are incredible thrifters. They find hidden gems every time they cross the threshold of a thrift store.
Ladies, do you dry clean your thrifted finds before you wear them? I have a rule for thrifting. I always leave the items in a bag outside in my garage for several days before bringing them in the house. I dry clean some items and wash others (twice) before wearing them. However, this coat and other furry items I have thrifted pose a problem. These items are generally more expensive to dry clean. I paid $20 for this coat and I don't want to spend the family fortune trying to clean it. Any suggestions? It is now hanging on my sun room porch, just in case it has some weird bugs or germs...
|Can you believe this coat came from Sears? Wow? This is the only label on the coat, no care instructions or anything. I am not even sure what type of fur this is?|
