Who hasn’t ruined a favorite top or outfit with a careless stain? Recently I was dressing for a party when I accidently splashed body oil on my BRAND NEW skirt, leaving two dime size splotches in a very conspicuous location! A strategically tied and draped scarf saved the outift, but after several washings I was afraid my skirt was ruined.
A friend suggested that I spot treat with Dawn dishwashing liquid, so I decided to give it a try before retiring my skirt to the lost cause pile. I dabbed Dawn on the stains, washed it with regular detergent in cold water and when my skirt emerged from the dryer it was a good as new. The stains had vanished!
So the next time you get an oil or grease based stain on your clothes, try Dawn before you give up. Be sure to follow the manufactures washing directions, and if the item is silk, we still recommend the dry cleaner!
