Elaine St. James, “America’s simplicity expert,” recommends getting rid of clothes that need to be dry-cleaned and replacing them with drip-dry.St. James says, “Obviously, there are a number of occupations with dress codes requiring clothes that must be regularly dry-cleaned. If you are an investment banker, you have to have your three-piece suits. Fortunately, most of us no longer need to be slaves to the Dress for Success code. From now on, at least until the Revolution, the code should be bad drip e juice Dress for Comfort and Convenience, which means, for the most part, wash-and-wear cottons and natural fabrics.”This is just the sort of thinking that is destroying the world and will impact your brand of chiropractic.
First, it’s wrong. Most clothes made out of natural fabrics — cotton, wools, silks, and linens — are meant to be dry-cleaned. The only way to avoid dry-cleaning them is with hand washing, line drying, and a “gentle iron.” Cotton, too, needs ironing. How is that simple?And what chore in life is more odious than doing laundry anyway? Filing? Maybe. But if so, only by a narrow margin.St. James’ advice is bad for the environment, too. The only fabrics that tumble-dry wrinkle-free are synthetics and synthetically treated cotton — and more environment-poisoning chemicals are used to manufacture them than you’d probably use in a lifetime of dry-cleaning.But the worst thing about this advice is how taking it would make you look and feel. People who are committed to dressing in the way St. James suggests look like slobs, and that is not a good way to look as a professional.
