how to clean a beaded silk evening bag?

  1. I have an evening bag that I carried after coming in contact with poison ivy. Afterwards, I washed all my clothes but avoided the bag. It's been sitting in a "quarrantine" bag since late summer now, and I want to use it again...

    I've heard of some guy wearing a jacket a year after poison ivy and getting it again.

    It's silk and beads and basically somewhat delicate material...:crybaby:
  2. Oh dear, I'm sorry this happened to you. :sad:

    I'm no expert, but...

    ...although silk can be washed, as it is a beaded bag, probably with some sort of padding and/or stiffening and a lining which may be of a different colour (and so there may be risk of colour transfer), I don't think it woud be a good idea to try to wash it.

    I think you should find a good dry cleaners and explain to them that it is silk and what has happened and hopefully they will be able to help you.

    Good luck! :biggrin:
  3. ^^ Agreed. See if you can find a cleaner that can help you with it.
  4. Thanks, I'll try that
