dry cleaning alternative

I just returned from a few months away and realized that I never put my winter coats away. (Wool peacoat, blazer, trenchcoat (not waterproof)....) Normally, I would take them to the dry cleaners but just found out that it's 10.80chf for a jacket and 18.90 for a coat...ouch!)

I'm wondering if I could try to wash any of this 'gently' by hand (at least the thin blazer and trenchcoat). Is it the lining or interfacing I should be worried about? Are the care labels just being cautious? (Bought these articles of clothing in Japan where *everything* seems to be labeled dry clean only).

Since the wool peacoat has been airing out for 6 months, maybe I can wear it for another 6 before taking it to the cleaners?

What your rule of thumb regarding seasonal coats?
