This looked adorable and was just what my teenage grandaughter chose for her room re-do. Once the item came, we washed the comforter set before use, and it became streaked with gray and was unusable. It looked as if the laundry powder did not dissolve and stained the spread. The label says machine washable, and we did follow the instructions. I even washed it a second time without any further detergent, and it was even worse. I have purchased comforter sets from Overstock before and have been very pleased with everything, but this was a huge disappointment, and is being returned.
