I heart you

I received my new dress and yuck it has blood stains on it, that wasn't advertised in the eBay listing. Earlier in the year I had read a entry from Diary of a Vintage Girl about how Fleur removed stains from her Swirl dress by using Vanish Oxi-clean, I read the small print and it said not suitable for clothing with metal zips, so I found an alternative from Sainsbury.
The water was brown afters and a small patch on the colour had faded, but that's because, I may have rubbed to much, but the worst of the staining had been removed and only two little dots remain, but as they are on the collar its okay.

I then used it on my white sundress, big mistake, it removed the stains, but where the stains was the fabric was very white. I may have to invest in the Sainsbury stain remover for whites, to get the rest of the dress brilliant white.
