    ... and ? Did it fall apart on you ?

    I'd imagine it's not so dryer friendly but I'd pretty much wash anything on Delicate mode in my front load machine.

    But that said, after seeing some alarming videos about the residue that can be left in your washing machine, I am thankful I have a 2nd top-load machine I'll be dedicating to Tesla washing (mostly for microfibre cloths).
