I bought a used dress and washed it my self! I researched the fabric and found out all of mine was washable. I put mine in my big garden tub with dye dree detergent and cold water and let it sit overnight. I used a clean sock  to rub the dirty areas then rinsed it really good. The tulle underskirt was a pain!! When I hung it up to dry, I supported the weight on chairs and put towels all over the floors under the chairs. I came out beautifully clean and saved me a ton of cash!

I bought and ex-smaple dress and just sent it off to be cleaned and boxed – there was nothing really bad on the dress, just spots of make-up etc but I wanted it to feel new to me, if that makes any sense?

@lyns86stc- It did have dirt stains on the hem. I used a clean sock to rub the areas so it didn’t pick at the fabric. It was beautiful afterward.
