I'm a wuss so I wash my embroidery in my washing machine on cold/cold with the "hand wash cycle". I use regular detergent and have to say I've never had any problems with DMC threads bleeding at all, even on the snowy-white tea towels that you can buy from Jenny.
Momwith3kids, I learned the hard way that most people don't really appreciate handiwork. Now I only give it to people that I'm sure will appreciate it (like my Mom) or I make sure that it's a really quick and easy project and I take a lot of pictures of it (because chances are I will never see it again).
