Wow!  I haven’t tried this, and to be honest, I would be too afraid to, but kudos to you!

Oooo This is SO EXCITING!

Here’s mine:

My dress is 100% duchess silk and has these crystal buttons down the back so I’m super worried about them scratching the rest of the silk but i guess if I used it in a tub I could lay the dress with the buttons up and not risk rubbing the fabrics on eachother? Did you clean your dress by flipping it over and moving it around in the water or just letting it sit?

How long did you leave it in the water concentration for? and when rinsing did you just use the shower attachment or like fill the water up and then let it go back down?

Did you clean your tub thoroughly first? I know a lot of bees do that, right?

I’m super excited to try!

…I really don’t want to ruin my dress in any way tho sooo eep wish me luck!
