Hello, I have a WWII patched khaki shirt that has a lot of stains on it. I tried taking to the dry cleaners but they said it was too fragile for them. What should I do next?

I don't think a dry cleaner would do much good; my experience is that once a stain has set, it's there to stay most of the time. 

 

Sometimes, though,  soiling can be removed with a brass clothing brush and depending upon what made the stain, it might come off, but if the brush doesn't touch it, again, it's probably permenent.

Who doesn't like stains on vintage shirts ?
