Random wardrobe meanderings part 22

I'm trying out the "mound of cornstarch on old oil stain in fabric" thing. Supposedly (half wondering if it's an urban myth), you can remove even old oil stains in fabric, by laying the item flat and placing a small mound of cornstarch on the stain (talcum powder may be used instead). Leave it overnight...the cornstarch is supposed to suck out the stain. At most the procedure may need to be repeated.

modcloth last hurrah sale

My ModCloth Last Hurrah Sale items arrived. The two tee shirts, by Korean company POL, are as gorgeous as photographed, but they're both quite big. Usually size Large isn't, well, large. I'm going to try shrinking them in the dryer, even though they appear pre-shrunk?

The lace blouse is even more beautiful than its're supposed to dryclean it though. I don't dryclean anything these days (unless it's something inevitable, like a wool suit), so I'm trying out washing in a mesh bag, cold water, Woolite, delicate cycle.
