Nitei Gavriel 35-17, The Three Weeks pg. 82.  The Aruch Hashulchan 551-15 says not to pick them up, because of maris ayin that it might look like it was given in to clean during the nine days. However In “The Three Weeks” he says that nowadays it is known that people give clothes to the cleaners and only pick them up a number of days later, therefore it isn’t maris ayin.
