Featured in the PR book!
For stain,spot removing at fabric you can use carbonic mineral water.I received this tip by another dreesmaker who removed a undentified spot out of wool crepe with spa water.
Spa rood is a brand in the Netherlands but I assume it will do with other brands also.Because the water is carbonic means that there will not appear a ring around the removed spot, which will occure when you remove a spot with tap water.Do a test first for silks and other fabric to make sure it does not damage or make it worse.
I have since I learned this tric always a small bottle at hand.

Carbonated maybe? You mean water with bubbles, like Perrier? I think I have heard about this technique, nice to know it works!

Yes Georgene, carbonated water it is I could not find your translation in my dictionary, thanks for the reply so it is better to understand what I meant.I did not wrote perrier because perrier comes also without the bubbles.
