Oh! No! Not That!


I recieved this Pleading Uh Oh! from a bride:

I was wondering if you had any tips for getting a stain out of a satin wedding dress? I was trying mine on and I must have slipped against a piece of furniture and now, of course, there is a mark on my dress. Do you have any tips?

Why yes I do! But first it depends on the stain... is it a smudge or furniture lacquer, food… what color is it?


I think it's furniture lacquer! HELP!

Okay, first try this…

Take some alcohol first blot (blot not rub) the stain… then some WD-40… don’t laugh, really! If it’s an oil based stain WD-40 is a miracle worker!!! It can also be used to help remove a grease spot. Lightly spray the spot with the WD40 and let it sit for a few minutes. Then work in dishwashing liquid and flush with hot water.

Or you could use dishwashing liquid which will help dissolve the grease much like it does when you are using it to wash dishes! Launder the item as usual or dry clean…

And volia, the stain is gone!!!

wine-out is also a miracle worker for me. Works on blood and dirt too. So gross, but a total lifesaver. :)

Melissa,

Carpet One Stain Remover for Upholstery works wonders on bridal gowns. It is a light clear liquid that does not destroy the material. EXCEPTION:Don't use it on 100% silk charmeuse gowns!

My bride had a cut on her finger and started bleeding on my sample dress. I put the solutions on it and it came right out. Works on old stains as well. Always try a dab on a hidden spot first.

Hope this helps!

Sincerely,

Tali, Solutions Bridal
