I am looking for a local place to have my dress cleaned. It is now black at the bottom from all the outdoor picture taking on the wedding day. Does anyone have any recommendations? If so, how much did it cost you? I’m not really interested in having it preserved since I am planning on re-selling it.

I found this.
I won’t be getting mine professionally cleaned because I have heard too many horror stories. I also read an article (that I can’t find now) that was a consumer reports type thing, showing that many “preservation” companies just wash your dress in a commercial washer or not at all. They reccomended handwashing or gentle cycle washing your dress inside out with baby detergent and pretreating any stains. Drying tips depended on the fabric.

There is Davis Imperial Cleaners in Chicago. They are very expensive and specialize in very difficult work, so if your dress is lace or silk chiffon you might get it cleaned best there. If you just need a basic cleaning I have heard good things about wedclean.
