    Hi.... I have and Irish Linen blouse (just figures, don't it? DUH, ME!!:):)

    Anyway.. I think I got Frontline on it. I suppose this is akin to an oil stain... anyone know how to get it out. By the time I see responses, It'll be DRY!! :):)

    THANK YOU ALL!!!!!

    NEVERMIND!! LOL!!
    DH said use lighter fluid and he had some.. It worked! (I remember my Mom doing this back in the '50s.)

    The sad/funny part:
    Every where I looked on web and in a book I had... said to use a 'stain remover'... WELL NO KIDDING. Nice if you've got one around. :rolleyes:

    I am notorious for getting dirty or at least being stain magnetic and I've taken to carrying one of those little Tide stain pens and another in my desk and they've saved my bacon a bunch of times. With summer, I usually leave the house in a white skirt or light colored clothing and before I'm off the farm and into the city, something has happened and at least I don't look like a total slob.
