Vintage Garment Cleaning Tips

One of the biggest challenges I find about wearing and selling vintage garments is finding a means of cleaning them properly without destroying them or spending a fortune in dry cleaning bills.  Lucky for me, I recently stumbled across a 1959 version of Removing Stains from Fabrics, distributed by the US dept. of Agriculture...lucky for you, I'm going to share ;)

 Unfortunately, I couldn't post the copy here on the blog because the pictures were too large, so I've posted it to my Pinterest account at this link or here at my flickr account.  Enjoy!

Hugs and Smooches,


  1. Oh, thanks for sharing. Can't wait to peek at this!!!

  2. The cleaning problem of vintage clothes is a very good reason to get more and more dresses. The more you have, the more seldom you wear each, and the more seldom you have to wash them! :) Wearing a slip - easy to wash - underneath the dresses is a good idea too, so you just need to wash the slip a bit more often.

  3. Great post idea -- I'm always at a loss on how to clean those delicate clothes. Although Miss Meadows might have the right idea!


Thank you for your comment! I read every one of them and they make my day :) Please do not post as anonymous (sadly, I have had issues with spammers lately :( Have a beautiful day!
