sometimes a comma can make your hankies stay dirty

A full-stop instead of a comma would have made it clear. The care instructions on the reverse of the packet of beautiful Liberty fabric handkerchiefs said, 'DO NOT BLEACH, WARM MACHINE OR HAND WASH, SHORT SPIN, WARM IRON'.
Hmm. If you can't bleach them, fine. But how will I keep them clean if I can't machine or hand wash?
