hi! So I know the predominate advice is to not wash / dry clean unless it looks in need or smells with an airing. However I feel bad selling without washing. I personally would wash or dry clean my own garments. Anyways,, I have a 40s dress - lavender rayon weave. Tested using burn method and smelt like burning paper I won't be handwashing or washing in general it as I just hand soaked and washed a early 40s dress with Retrowash with the same fiber and weave and it faded in spots!! Almost cried at that one. It seems however to respond well to spot cleaning ... got a strange stain out My dilemma: Anyways, anybody have experience with dry cleaning such rayons and care to share? In general, Does dry cleaning "set" stains? I plan on removing the bows and shoulder pads.
