reports on cleaning techniques
- Hi All,
Hand-washing the beaded poly "flapper"-style overdress in Orvis soap
worked just fine.
Alcohol was successful in dissolving gunk from the tips of the fur on
a fur jacket. I put it on a cotton ball & worked slowly and
carefully, separating just the bits of fur with gunk and holding them
between alcohol-dampened cotton balls. I used my hair air-styler to
fluff and dry the fur so that it didn't stay in clumps.
The white leather gloves are pretty delicate, and unfortunately, have
no "invisible" parts to test on, so I'm going to hold off and think
about it some more. There were so many "traditional" home remedy
suggestions online, that I'm beginning to think the choice depends
upon what type of leather and how it was cured and the finish on it.
Too many variables...
Thanks everyone for your suggestions,
