Andy, I was just reading your column and I spotted a lady with a similar situation in that I bought a beautiful two layered silk dress. The top layer being silk chiffon and when I got home after wearing it for the first time spotted a number of large “grease stains”. I have not attempted to move it yet and wondered if you had any advice apart from taking straight to the dry cleaners as I expect it will come back with the stains intact but the dress like a limp lettuce. I live in the UK and was wondering if you could recommend the best approach.
Theresa: Either bring it back to the store, and see what they recommend, or the dry cleaner, should be able to get the grease out.
Good Luck and Cheerio………….
