soaking vintage

Recently I'v been soaking my vintage duds in oxi clean like crazy! I have never done it before, but I always heard it was a great way, one od the best ways, to clean your vintage and delicates (and delicate vintage!) Oxi clean will take out stains you thought would never come out! So I have been on a kick of separating my vintage by color and giving them a good soak for a few hours. It's has been so nice out these last three weeks I just hang them outside for a bit and they dry in no time, Good as new!

EDIT! keep in mind, some things might be a bit too delicate for oxiclean, I had a thing or two get holes in them from soaking, so I suggest something a bit more gental for something really delicate. I know a light soak in dish soap is good for old wool sweaters and such.

Let me know how that works! I wish there were good places in my town to buy vintage and that I knew how to sew to create something new out of old.

Thanks for the tips! I will be putting them to good use on my special vintage items.
