Ask the Laundress
I need to clean my silk/sateen wedding dress which has marks on the skirt part. Unsure of what caused the marks as they were present when I bought it as a stock item from the rack at the bridal shop. It looks like it could be makeup as it's a small brown mark. I have been told spot treating is not possible as water marks may result. How should I wash it as it has beading on the bust area?
My best recommendation for this would be to use a professional service that specializes in the cleaning of wedding gowns. I’ve listed below two contacts that we use and trust.
