Any suggestions on how to wash a stoned and feathered costume ? Can see stoned to wash in bath but what if they have feathers too, do they go back feathery if three get wet ?

Well after seaching high and low for some advice I finally took the plunge and combined multiple pieces and I am pleased to say the costume looks brand new, so that others have it in one place I have listed below a step by step guide.

1. soak the costume in the bath with a washing tablet and warm water gentle scrubbed the tanned areas (if any).
2. Rinse with softer and warm water this helps bring the feathers back to life.
3. Place between two towels and pressed to soak up most of the water, and put on a suitable hanger.
4. Use a hair dryer to dry the feathers, they go from sad looking to being super fluffy again.
5. Use the hair dryer over the costume so it's semi dry (low heat).
6. Leave to dry near a open window.

Then the next day not only does it look new, it smells amazing too, I hope this helps.
