I did mine (lace with a silky liner that I don’t know the fabric) in my kitchen. I used a soft toothbrush and a heavy dose of Palmolive dishwashing soap sudsed up in the sink with water. I swished the bottom in the sink and just squeezed the hem area in my hands while it was in the soapy water. I rinsed it several times with the same squeezing method, and hung it to dry. Mine was also just the bottom hem area, like most others here. It came out pretty good, and I wasn’t willing to pay a bunch to have it done professionally since I only paid $300 for the dress and alterations. Good luck! I think the Dryel thing might be a great way to do it!!
