and dry cleaned; however others may require special care.
When washing turn the garment inside out.
Metal and silver/pewter buttons may tarnish from
detergents and dry cleaning fluids. Either remove them
or, if dry cleaning, cover with foil. Silver/pewter
buttons can be polished with silver cleaner but protect
the garment when polishing.
buttons should not be washed and should be protected from
moisture. Waxes and polishes can be used but protect the
garment when applying them.
Rhinestone buttons can be delicate. They should not be
washed or dry cleaned as stones may loosen or even discolour.
