Most pieces of clothing are designed to be machine washable. But whether you have an extensive business wardrobe or just a few delicate garments, we all have at least one piece of clothing that says "Hand wash only" on the tag. This instruction used to be a lot more common, but many people today have never actually handwashed a garment.
One of the greatest benefits of owning a farmhouse sink is the ability to wash absolutely anything. You can rinse a turkey, bathe a baby, or you can prepare your deep basins to properly handwash all of your delicates at once. Now it’s time to figure out how you're supposed to handwash that nice blouse or stained silk tie that you just don't want to risk casually tossing in the wash.
