Good job!!

I handwashed mine in the tub. It came out pretty much perfect, and it had gotten SO filthy. It was a lot of work, but totally worth it.

@Pinkmoon:  The owner of the salon I bought my dress at told me not to waste my money on dry cleaning and to just take it down to the laundry mat and use the industrial size washers.  My dress doesn’t have any delicate lace, just some beading, and she said it will be fine.  She’s been in the industry for over 30 years and has nothing to gain from this so I trust her.  It’s nice to hear another bride’s success story.  Are you going to store it or sell it?

@Pinkmoon:  Me too! I also had an all over lace gown. Saved me another hundred dollars and the dress looked fantastic. I air dried mine in the sun (to further help bleach out any stain), but I had summer on my side.
