Ask the Laundress
We are experiencing a pest infestation and were told that we can put clothes through a high heat dryer cycle to kill off the parasites. I have many tunics made of rayon, which I know you cannot wash and then dry in a dryer due to certain shrinkage. Is that only if the fabric is wet? Would it damage the tunics if they are run through the dryer?
We don’t recommend putting rayon items in the dryer as the heat may cause rayon to shrink. Unfortunately, it is an extremely unpredictable fabric. You can try steaming these items as steam has been proven to kill off mites. Our Jiffy Steamer is great for this purpose!
