OK...I'm telling my age now. I found my christening gown along with my brother's and sister's in my grandmothers trunk. Unfortuneately, they each had a decorative safety pin at the neck and some staining. I'm now 61 years old and my sister is 65, so you do the math. I soaked them in Oxy-Clean and all the rust stains came out and they all were white again. They are now vacuum sealed until I can get them framed in a shadow box of some kind. My grandmother hand-made them and they are beautiful. The Oxy-Clean worked wonderfully!
