Washing up liquid really works, my daughters costume is always covered in tan and I rub this on and it comes off straight away.

My mum always washes mine in cold water with Ariel liquid in the bath or a basin to catch any stones but not much have ever fallen of.

Thanks for all the information on washing costumes my daughters are new to this and was worrying about cleaning their costumes as one of them could get mucky standing still in a room with nothing in it. Guess I'm washing costumes tonight lol.

I always wash my daughters in the bath, using Luke warm water and fairy liquid on the stones, pat dry with a towel and lie flat on table to air off. Only a couple of stones have come off each time and easy glued on. Good luck

Hi, I don't have a bath only a walk in shower and felt unsure of using my washing machine to wash my daughters stoned and delicate costumes so I've washed them in the sink which has sometimes been difficult due to the size of the ruffles etc but I've found hanging them on a hanger in the shower to rinse them with a towel underneath to catch any loose stones help to make sure all soap is out, being careful not to flood my bathroom. A long drawn out way to make sure there clean but so worth it in the long run :) x

I have two ways to wash my stoned cozzies, one: i fill the sink up with luke warm water and i little bit of comfort and soke for 1hour and that takes away the tan stains and bad smells and leaves ut slemming and looking FRESH!!! My sencond way of washing it is you put in a pillow case and tye the end with a bobble and wash in the washing machine which leaves them smelling freash xxxxx

Hi is it normal to be able to easily peel stones off when the costume has been soaking in very luke warm water??? Once its dreid they are stuck fast again but i was worried that if i sqeezed it gently to get water out they would come off x

My daughters starter costume was covered in ostrich feather fringing. Used to pop it in a sealed pillow case & wash in the washing machine. When it came out used to look like a drowned rat but after line drying or drip drying when nearly dry I would "fluff it up " with the hair-dryer & it always looked as good as new . X

I use cold water and washing up liquid it's literally a dunk and drip hand wash. Rinse thoroughly in cold water hand wring by squeezing rather than wringing and dry flat on an old towel out of direct sunlight. hope this helps x
