Their website isn’t much to look at, but after my other mishap with the previous dress cleaner, they did a wonderful job!  Plus as long as you don’t wear the dress, you get free lifetime cleaning and they insure the dress for what you paid for it!

I have read on several sites that most of these places basically wash your dress in a big machine. 

For cost effective DIY,  turn your dress inside out, wash on gentle cycle, in cool water (with gentle detergent) and hang to dry.  If there is beading or something you are afraid will “catch” on the inside, put the whole dress in a mesh laundry bag.

Also, be sure to pretreat stains with a stain stick or spray.

A friend did this with her dress and had NO problems at all.  She let her regular Dry Cleaner steam the dress to remove wrinkles and it was pristine!

im sooooo scared to take my dress to the cleaner for final sealing because i have heard TOO many horror stories about dirty dresses being sealed. I know its a little off topic for your hiking cleaning, but once you do get it cleaned, MAKE SURE you check it before you put it into storage. my moms wedding dress had a tag stapled…..yes stapled to it!
