I found a beautiful dress in the 5 year old bin that www worn by my older dd several years ago.
Despite my checking clothes before putting them away, this lovely dress (polyester) has a big yellow stain.
I already did stain out (with dawn power wash)
and soak and wash and it didn’t come out.

Should I accept it’s ruined or try again with ???

Try bleach. Worst that can happen is the bleach ruins the dress, but the dress is already ruined. Best that can happen is the stain comes out and the dress is saved. You don't lose either way.

If you LOOOOOVE the dress and the stain is on the front and doesn't cover a huge area, you can conceal the spot by sewing or ironing on an applique or fake flower.

I just got yellow stains out of old baby clothing by putting clorox2 for for colors on the stain and then soaking in a solution of Clorox 2 and hot water for a few hours and washing on a hot cycle with detergent (All) and Clorox2 added. I didn't this 3 times and most stains disappeared.

try soaking in nature bright made by shaklee I’ve had success with tht in the past . and also make a mix of hydrogen peroxide and blue dawn dish soap in a spray bottle and spray with tht. I find tht takes out loads of stains very well. do you know what the stain is from?

Thanks everyone! I have a lot of good ideas!

(I don’t know what the stain is from).

Usually I do one stain out treatment and then give up if it doesn’t work but the dress is lovely so I’m glad I have these ideas!

I’ve gotten similar looking stains out by spraying with dreft and tide stain remover spray and then covering with oxyclean powder and rubbing it in. Leave for a few days and then wash.

I pour dawn and oxi powder and make a paste and scrub on the stain them a bit of tide. I them pour hot water from the kettle on top. Leave it to soak for a while and then wash normally. Everything comes off
