Anyone??

can you machine wash oilcloth? dd got some really cool art smocks from the land of nod for her birthday -- but they have a really strong odor. I was wondering if I could toss them in the washing machine?

I have no personal experience but know it is not recommended. What about tossing it in the dryer with no heat? Or hanging it on a line outside?
