How can I clean a white pageant dress at home? It has stains on it and is laced at the bottom?

Have you tried the "Dryel" stuff made for "dryclean only" things to do at home. (03/14/2009)

Cleaning a Formal Dress at Home

I have had a lot of success with a dry cleaning method which I read about in a 100 year old book. It is very good for light coloured clothes. You take some cornflour (that's what we call it in the UK, I think it's called cornstarch in the US) and rub it in and leave it. The next day you brush it out and if necessary rub more cornflour in. You keep doing this until the marks are gone.

Dry cleaning fluids are grey coloured and can make white clothes look even dirtier. Always try to avoid buying white "dry clean only" clothes. (03/14/2009)
