I believe that cleaning will remove stains but preserving includes both cleaning for stain removal and treating the fabric, lace, etc. with some sort of chemical(s) which will ensure the longevity and integrity of the fabric and lace to prevent yellowing, etc. 

Then it’s put into a box that’s also treated and / or made of a special kind of paper to help preserve it as well.


I think what fabric your gown is will determine if simply having it cleaned and stored in a large dress box or a garment bag will be sufficient or if it needs more specialized care.
