Dried mustard stain
I have a very expensive 100 percent wool Ralph Lauren sweater. My husband came up behind. Me to give me a hug and he had mustard on his hand. Unknowingly to both of us it got on my sweater which is a cream color. I used dryel to dry clean it a week later and when I removed it from bag I noticed the stain. I heard on fb you can use peroxide dish detergent and baking soda to remove stain. Will this work? I love this sweater, plz help.

Dryel is the stuff you use in the dryer? With heat? I've been looking around to see what I can find. Peroxide can bleach out colors. Oxygenated bleach (OxyClean, I guess) products pop up a lot. I thought this site looked like it might be helpful. http://housekeeping.about.com/od/sta...mple-Steps.htm I hope you can figure a way to get it out. Good luck.

I would be very careful using any chemicals, try a wet cloth and if you have some woolite or a light soap damp the spot and allow it to air dry, if you put your sweater in the dryer I would be afraid you will set the stain if it doesn't come out the first time

Stain Remover
I use a product called Zout to remove stains. Have been using it for years. It gets blood out of your clothes, red clay out of white double knit baseball pants, and formula stains out of baby clothes. You can get it on Amazon or check in the laundry aisle for it in your local grocery store. I have no connection to the company that makes Zout other than being a very satisfied customer of it.

I've heard of that product. In fact, there's a bottle of it in the laundry room as I speak. Its mighty powerful stuff.
