Do Not Wash, Do Not Dryclean

Do not get dirty? I bought this sweater yesterday and noticed when I came home that the tag reads, and I quote, "Do not wash. Do not bleach. Do not iron. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean." Thus I thought to myself, what in the hell do I do if I spill mustard on this, a thought that often crosses my mind when I purchase premium sweaters. The sweater is made of 5gg cashmere lined internally along the whole front panel with nutria fur and along the back panel with acetate. So really, what do I do if, for whatever reason, this thing gets dirty? Hand wash? Thanks for any help.

Are you allowed to look at it? Take it out in natural light?




(I'd just hand wash it in cold water. No, not the machine's "hand washing" setting ... actually wash it by hand.)

Yeah... I'd just wash it in cold'ish water by hand..
I've got a friend who is really anal about this kind of thing... He spilt something on one of his cashmere sweaters.. took a windex bottle full of water, and worked away with a little pinch of some sort of EXTRA light detergent...
Just be careful!

Thanks! It's by Boss Selection and I got it for an outstanding price! It's a sample sweater so I can't tell you whether it was mass produced, but if it were it would be in stores now as it is a current season sample from what I remember the computer telling me. The name of the sweater is Baris if you were interested in purchasing one.
