What do you use to get spots off your dress whites???
    #2165431 - 12/07/03 12:12 AM (13 years, 4 days ago)

This subject has come up at work, there was a discussion about who used what to get what spot out of their whites/chef jacket. Was wondering if anyone had a good tip on stain removal.

Ok, seems that "Oxyclean" , found at walmart , is the best thing to get almost anything out of your whites.

Oxyclean does supposedly work pretty well.

But it is very dependent on what the stain is.

There is a cleaning company in New York, that guarantees they can remove any stain. Sometimes it costs upwards of $100,000. They do a detailed chemical analysis, then formulate a treatment to remove the offending stain.

I also think they charge something like 15 bucks to dry clean a business shirt, but pakcage it such a way that it is guaranteed to not wrinkle.

Fo' sure. :wink:

Edit - I think many of the pieces they work on are antique or historical, and are nearly priceless.  But they did say they get many wedding dresses and designer pieces.  I think the did say the most expensive treatment had been a wedding dress though.

I find if I use just a little bit of bleach not diluted directly on the stain and watch it for a minute till it goes white then wash the garment - works well, like the stain never existed. You can only do it if the garment is white though.
