I don't really enjoy the process of washing clothes by hand but for the things I'd rather not risk messing up, I'll do it and I'll refrain from complaining that my hands hurt from ringing out water.
Oh and in case you're wondering, I use an eco-friendly, biodegradable detergent in liquid form for all my clothing, vintage and non vintage. You can find various eco detergents like Seventh Generation at supermarkets and in bulk at Costco. Though I sometimes dread it, eventually, I'll have two really cute dresses (plus a full circle skirt!) that I can wear and show you all verrrry soon! :)
