    I also have an antique wedding dress, made entirely of lace (it was “lined” by wearing a full length satin slip underneath). I plan to follow your directions to refresh it, but I also remember seeing a recipe for cleaning lace several years ago which involved Borax. Have you heard of this?

    Why would anyone recommend bleach on antique lace?
    My god, NO!

    What is Biz? I haven’t seen it in Canada (although with Walmart and Target taking over all our institutional stores, maybe we will soon).

      Joanella and Martin,
      Biz is a multipurpose cleaner. Here is a list of stores that carry Biz;
      If you can not find it in stores, you can buy it online. Many stores, such as Walmart or Target, will ship directly to your home, as well as to your local store. You could also ask one of your local institutional stores to consider carrying the product or acquire samples for a trial use if possible.
