How To Wash Viscose Clothing?

Viscose clothing is usually designated as dry clean only because the twisting that occurs in a washing machine can damage the fibers. Machine drying will also disfigure viscose garments. However, simple viscose clothing like unlined dresses, tops, and scarves can be hand-washed.

Does viscose shrink in the wash?

Yes, viscose will shrink. Most fabrics will when washed for the first time. But that is due to the heat of the water you use in your washing machine, the heat of your dryer and if you ignore the cleaning instructions given by the manufacturer.
