    If you like the jackets a lot, take them to the best drycleaner in town. Do-it-yourself stain removal can really make a mess.

    It isn't bad, but I wouldn't use it on any suits or nice dress shirts. I've used it on a couple of white/light polos of mine that seem to attract stains and it's done it's job.

    I used the Tide stick on a pair of pale cotton poplin trousers. Dribbled a splotch of chili on one leg. I first wiped it off as best I could. Went out and bought the Tide stick and used it - maybe within 2 hours. It worked. Stain all gone.

    Not for silk, IIRC.

    I've also had good luck with a series of products called Lift Off. different ones for different stains.
