    Accidentally just washed a pair of wool dress pants in cold water machine wash. Are these ruined? They look OK to me so far just very wrinkled.

    What do you think? / What should I do? Thanks!

    Air dry them on a flat surface. You'll need to press them. They'll be fine. Don't do it again. [​IMG]

    Don't put them in the dryer, if you haven't. Either fold them seam to seam at the bottoms and lay them flat on some cotton towels until they dry, or hang them from the bottom with a hanger that will hold them by pressure or clips. Once they dry, send them to the cleaners for a pressing.
