Well, I just tossed it into the washing machine with my other clothes.

What temperature did you use?

I usually wash my clothes in hot water, so I guess hot.

Well, did you check the washing instructions?

Um ... maybe not.

Clerk:

Well, you see here on this label? It says, "Wash in cold water only."

Uhm-hmm.

Clerk:

So I'm really sorry, but since you didn't follow the washing instructions, I can't really do anything for you.
