Wedding Dress

in Charities
2 replies 756 views
I have a wedding dress from several years ago which is beautiful, but I have found is stained. Now I don't want to start using unsuitable sprays which may ruin the dress. I would like to donate the dress to my local charity shop, obviously in the hopes of it being reused. What I would like to know is, do any/all charity shops have any way of cleaning the dress themselves? Thanks in advance for any replies.

    It might be worth ringing one or two of them and asking.

    I'm sure it would make someone very happy. It's a lovely gesture.

    I agree with JJ, but it's worth bearing in mind that they may so no, simply because if they have to spend money on cleaning it and the stain doesn't come out, they won't be able to sell it.

    For that reason it might be worth asking a few dry cleaners to offer an opinion a) on whether the stain will come out and b) what would be the safe way to clean it.

    Do you know what the stain is? And what fabric the dress is made of?
