Stain removal emergency! Need answer by Saturday morning!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have to go to a funeral tomorrow morning and just found that the suit I was going to wear has some pretty significant stains on the pants bottom. It's an Oxxford (I think super 130 or 140 wool) and I have never had it cleaned. What's the best way to remove this stain on my own? Can I treat it like any other wool cloth or something else?

Thanks!

There's no solution to this problem. You have to send the suit to a very good drycleaner. Wear something else.

Without knowing the nature of the stain it is of course impossible to give any definitive solutions.
However, I have had very good results removing oily stains from clothing with fuller's earth. Simply apply the dry earth over the stains and let sit overnight, then brush off in the morning. Only trick is where to find it on short notice. Depending on where you live, apparently some auto supply stores sell it as a grease/oil absorbent. I'd have another suit ready as a backup, of course. Good luck and condolences on your loss.
