Whitening A Satin Wedding Gown

gownHi, I am wondering if it is possible to whiten a satin wedding gown that has yellowed with age. My daughter would like to wear it for her wedding. It was my mothers and is 60 years old. It is beautiful except for the fact that it has aged. It is not yellow but it is dingy. Do you have any suggestions. Can this be washed and if so, in what temp. and how do I dry it. Thank you, Kathy

Dear Kathy,
It all depends on the construction, the fiber content, and the condition of the gown. If it can be soaked in OxiClean® and rinsed easily, you could try it. I don’t know exactly what will happen. Go online and search for restoration services and see if any of the results fit your needs.
best,
Jennifer
