    Hi guys, so I spilled some screwdriver (orange juice and vodka) on my wool suit last night and I know you have to get it treated immediately but I have no experience whatsoever at removing stains and it's Sunday so all the dry cleaners are closed around me.

    So I was wondering if it's alright to wait one more day until tomorrow to get it dry cleaned? Is that gona be too late for the stain?

    Thanks!

    None. Just drop it off tomorrow and note the stain.

    You can reduce the chance of the stain setting by wetting down the stain with cool water (some recommend plain soda water) and blotting up with paper towel. Avoid rubbing or heat. Take it to be cleaned tomorrow.
