I agree, it's DMC! And, even so, I'd be scared to use hot water on anything that I spent time making. Just thinking, I did put my denim pants through hot water wash, trying to shrink them. No such luck. Guess I will have to admit I am losing weight. Don't ask me if I'm on a special program. To quote my darling husband, just eat less and exercise more. With both, the fat just falls off. Us older ladies wind up with loose skin...LOL.
