English term or phrase: do not dry clean
Hello everybody!
A friend of mine asked me to help him out with the translation of the above sentence. It's the washing instructions you find on labels attached to clothes.
Unfortunately this is not my linguistic combination.
Can you help me please?
Thanks a lot in advance!!!
