....I machine wash a jacket that's dry-clean only??

It's like 50% wool and 50% something else i think. Gaaah! I just looked at the tag again and turns out it's actually polyester. -_-' How i got the two mixed up, I don't know...

I got it at a thrift store and could use a good washing.

I have a jacket i wear all the time and have had for a few years now, and i noticed like, last month its Dry Clean Only. Oh well! It's still perfectly fine! However, it is also not wool...

I'm guessing it would shrink, too.
Can't you just dry clean it? And be careful when you wear it so that you don't have to pay for it to get dry cleaned often.

So long as it's not all sequin-y washing it in the machine shouldn't do too much damage. If you're worried about it shrinking just let it air dry rather then put it in the dryer, that works for me.

If you wash it on a cold cycle and just let it air dry, I'm guessing it would be alright.

Yep, since it's wool AND dry clean only definitely wash it on a cold cycle.
