I’m taking my dress to get altered later today, and it brushed up against my fiance’s bike chain on accident, getting grease all over the organza skirt! Bees, I am freaking out! How do you get grease out of organza?! I have to go to work, but I’m worried about leaving it sit there to dry! Any suggestions???

Wow this is what this website says: http://www.srfabrics.com/care/stain.htm
I’m guessing that lava soap?
Oil & Grease
Scrape away as much as possible with a spoon. Place stain on a clean, white cotton rag. Spray with WD-40 (available at hardware stores), and rub from the top with another clean rag. Flip over and spray stain from other side. Continue to flip, spray, rub and move to a clean area of the rag until the stain is removed. Treat the edges of the WD-40 circle the same way to remove as much migrated material as possible. Soak in an enzyme pre-soak and then launder as usual. Drip dry and evaluate before putting in dryer.
Another method is to use a mechanics hand cleaner (available at auto parts stores), gently rubbing it into the stain with a tooth brush. Follow with an enzyme pre-soak and then launder as usual. Drip dry and evaluate before putting in dryer.
For dry clean materials, treat with WD-40 as above, and take to the dry cleaners. Tell them you were greasing your 1956 Pickup..

Thanks ladies. I fully realize this is not the end of the universe….its just coming after a series of dress frustrations! First, the alterations shop made it too short, and had chopped off the bottom so there’s no way to add length back on. That was a month ago…then I tried it on yesterday only to find I’ve lost some weight and its too big up top, so I had to beg a local alterations lady to help me last-minute (I leave for the wedding in a week.) And NOW, a big massive black grease stain!! I’m worried about having time to get that done (I take it in today) then also having time to get it into the dry-cleaners.
*sigh, end rant*
