Stains on a Khaki Shirt

Recommended Posts

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?

 

-Seth


Looking for WWII Americal Division and 147th Infantry Regiment Uniforms and anything relating to the Army on Guadalcanal.

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.
