A few years back, I spent my honeymoon in perpetually sunny Aruba — beautiful beaches, fabulous nightlife, and dozens of wonderful restaurants. One night we visited La Bouillabaisse, the island’s fanciest French restaurant, which served the most exquisite seafood I’d ever tasted (I actually took a picture of our appetizer, it was that amazing). Midway through the entrée, disaster struck and I spilled wine on my off-white, beaded dress. Club soda didn’t touch it and the dress was ruined (although it still hangs in my closet, peeking out reproachfully when I least expect it).
I wish I’d known then about Madame Paulette’s Professional Stain Removal Kit . This kit is the same professional formula used by the world-renowned Madame Paulette to clean couture apparel! Madame Paulette is one of the finest custom couture cleaners in the world and works with couture designers, celebrities, dignitaries, and high-profile VIPs.
The Stain Removal Kit is tiny, so it’s perfect keep in your bag or to take on vacation. And when you have a stain, time is of the essence! The sooner the stain can be treated properly, the safer and easier it is to remove.
But first, you need to identify the stain because every stain has a different chemical composition. Unlike conventional stain removers that have a one-size-fits-all approach, Madame Paulette’s kit contains special formulas for the three primary stain groups:
Earth Based Stains. These include fruit juices, teas, colas, liquors, etc.
Protein Based Stains. Anything from the body (blood, perspiration, etc.) and dairy products like milk and eggs.
Oil Based Stains. Stains from vegetable, mineral, or petroleum oils, such as baby oil, animal fat, salad dressing, mayonnaise, motor oil, grease, etc.
Each formula is biodegradable and rinses out with a distilled water rinse that flushes out any remaining stain particles. According to Madame Paulette, distilled water permits the fabric to dry without leaving an unsightly ring. Often, the minerals and iron in tap water leave a permanent yellow ring, even after the original stain is removed!
With expensive clothes, Madame Paulette’s is an absolute necessity. I won’t tell you how much my dress cost (my mother might read this!) but I will tell you I’ll never vacation without Madame Paulette’s again!
