Why was Connally's suit laundered?

Unlike other pieces of clothing which were treated as evidence,  and now reside, unaltered, in the National  Archives , such as JFK's suit jacket, shirt, tie, etc.,  Mr Connally's suit was laundered before being presented as evidence.
Why?

It was laundered so as to keep as much evidence as possible under wraps . Back in the day nothing was questioned . Today , everything is questioned and it should be .  Upper echelon feels like there is no explanation . How dare you question my authority . It's like J Edgar Hoover saying there was no such thing as the Mafia ! When Bobby Kennedy went after the Mob , it was the beginning of the end for the Kennedy's . Oh I did not know that a bloody suit should not be laundered ! What the hell was I thinking  ?

You wouldn't have a clue whether it's altered or not.....if it's even there.

Uh, so, why was Connally's suit laundered?

I redact my statement.

I doubt you would actually know that a piece of evidence was unaltered.

Like any of JFK's clothing.

The holes in JFK 's shirt, coat and tie correspond to the medical and ballistic reports.

None of them were present during the autopsy.

Chain of possession?
Why was Connally's suit laundered?
Hint: politics

Laundering the suit to remove blood spatter evidence.
Which would reveal Connally's position when he was shot.
Which did not occur at Z224, or Z234.
Think Z312. And after.

This is one of the more obvious proofs of the cover-up. The FBI knew full well that Connally's shirt and coat were crucial forensic evidence, yet for months--not weeks, but months--both the FBI and the Secret Service acted as though Connally's clothes did not exist and showed no interest in them. 

Nellie Connally notified the FBI and the Secret Service that she had her husband's bloody clothes, but, she said, "nobody seemed interested." She waited two months after notifying the FBI and the Secret Service, and then she decided to have them cleaned because she logically thought that for some reason there was no interest in them.

Finally, the FBI went and got the clothes from Mrs. Connally, and the FBI lab received them on April 1, 1964, but, as mentioned, Mrs. Connally had already had them cleaned, so they were of very limited forensic value. The holes could not be tested for metallic residue, not even by super-sensitive methods, and the value of the fabric and shape of the clothing holes was diminished.

Why the keystone-cop lack of interest? One reason was that the FBI was aware that both of Connally's surgeons suspected that the bullet that hit Connally had fragmented, which would explain the weird H-shaped tears in the front of the shirt and the dimensions and nature of the wrist wounds.

Another reason for the astonishing months-long lack of interest was that the FBI knew that spectrographic testing of the Connally clothing holes could reveal metallic residues that were different in composition from the residues found on the edges of the holes in the back of JFK's shirt and coat, which of course would prove that Connally and JFK were hit by different bullets.

  Mr Connally's suit was laundered before being presented as evidence. Why?
Where was that documented?
