I ordered the "Imperial Dragon" comforter set, one set of sheets and a pair of curtains from "Domestications", an online catalog company. All were in the same design. The pattern is dark red with black accents. I immediately washed the comforter set in COLD water on the DELICATE cycle although the label said to use warm water.
The inside of my dryer is now RED ! I called Domestications. They said they aren't liable for any damages because I didn't follow manufacturers directions. They supposedly refunded shipping costs of $39.99 to my credit card. I won't know for a few days if that is true.
Before I prepared to mail everything back I decided to test the sheet set on a warm water wash (as instructions stated). Not only is the drum in my dryer a deeper RED now but upon inspecting the pillow cases I saw that the red had disappeared on every fold line on them and on the sheets too. Did same thing to all the stuff.
Domestications told me on the phone that they'd send a return label but it'd take 10-14 days to get it to me. I told them to forget that,I paid $21.40 to the post office for Priority Mail with Signature Confirmation.
The whole set wasn't worth $10.00 combined.
Material was stiff as a board and fabric softener didn't help at all.
Avoid this company at all costs, they're products are worth nothing.
Funny side note...The palms of my hands are tinged red from handling the wet fabrics !
AND bleach on a wet sponge didn't get half the red out of my dryer.
I'll update this review on how fast I get a refund of $99.97 plus the $39.99 S&H charge.
(I wonder if that red dye in my dryer will turn my husbands white socks pink ?)

Sold my credit card information
Posted by Dave on 2007-08-27
Domestications.com sold my information and more importantly sold my credit card number to a company called Buyers edge. I received a letter in the mail from Buyers edge thanking me for joining their membership program, normally I would just throw this stuff in the trash but the letter went on to say that they would automatically charge my credit card on file for $99 if I didn’t cancel within 30 days. When I called to cancel, I asked how they got my information and I was told Domestications signed me up.
If you order product on line from Domestications, watch out for this scam.
