Machine washable clothes can save money and hassle and can also be chic and fashionable.

"These days you can get really good looking, fashionable clothes that are easy care. They're either machine wash/tumble dry or machine wash/hang dry. They eliminate a lot of time, and they eliminate sending everything to the dry cleaner," said Kathleen Huddy, Good Housekeeping.

Good Housekeeping liked s 100 percent cotton dress by Boden. Reviewers said it's lined with lightweight cotton and is very flattering. They also liked its empire waist and scoop neck.

"We would recommend machine wash/line-dry because of the fineness of the cotton," said Kathleen Huddy.

You can even get washable silks from Dana Buchman. It's sold exclusive at Cole's - just dry it on a clothes line.

"This Coldwater Creek 100 percent cotton shirt has a no-iron finish and comes in a lot of high-impact colors. It's a great machine wash/tumble dry that will always look good," said Kathleen Huddy, Good Housekeeping.

Good Housekeeping stresses the importance of following the care labels on clothes.
