"Cleanologist" David Begley of Johnson Cleaners is sharing his top tips on how to clean your wedding dress and says: "If there's any day it pays to be prepared, it's your wedding day."
According to David, packing an emergency kit with safety pins, a sewing kit and a small make-up sponge for your wedding day is highly recommended. One of the most common wedding dress disasters is a dropped hem, but this can easily be rectified with a simple tacking stitch that should hold until it can be taken to a professional seamstress.
Here are others way to keep the gown dope:
1.) For red wine stains... Mix a little white vinegar with water and a drop of washing up liquid then lightly dab the stain with a sponge.
2.) For lipstick marks... Dab a little vodka on any lipstick stains and they'll be cleaned up in no time.
3.) Champagne, sugar and perspiration stains… these are stains which aren't visible to the naked eye but can lead to discoloration over time. To preserve your dress perfectly for years to come, take it to be professionally cleaned after the big day.
Note that the cleaning process takes about two weeks.
