Subject: Stain on dress

Stain on dress

From: Sarah Resnick <sarah.resnick<-at->

I post this on behalf of the textile conservators at the Museo Del
Cine in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The museum holds in its collection a dress with a number of stains.
Some of the stains are intentional--including blood in the chest
area and mud at the hem line--while others are incidental, including
discoloration inside the cuffs and elsewhere. They would like to
clean the dress without removing the intentional stains, but are
unsure how to proceed. Does anyone have experience with a similar
situation?  Photos of the dress are available by contacting Paula
Felix-Didier, the museum's director, at pfdidier<-at->gmail<.>com. Please
find additional contact information below:
