Trying to restore my mom's wedding dress to wear...any ideas??

As for the discoloration and stains....I'll have to ask my mom if she has any ideas of any sorts for restoring you're dress, do you know what kind of material it's made out of. Depending on what kind of material, lace, silk, ect....you won't be able to use just anything on it.

Before trying it all over the dress, pick a small spot on the dress that is not noticeable......this way if it doesn't work...no damage done to the whole dress.....
sprinkle baking soda and then use a spray bottle, in the spray bottle put vinegar (just regular kind) clear. it will bubble, with your finger gently rub to make a paste....leave for an hour or two (she said few hours) and then hand wash......
She swears by it. she said that her friends lace curtains are better than new.
IF it does work on the small area you try...once it's all clean have it steam pressed or dry cleaned.....
GOOD LUCK! keep me posted if you decide to try this and if it did work.

Thanks again for all your help (and your moms)

I know for sure it works on stains, but as for cleaning the whole dress once the stains are gone I'd say get it dry cleaned or steamed pressed.
But I'll ask.

Thanks again for all the ideas and advice. My mother would be so thrilled to see her dress this way!
