The Costume Wash


Yesterday I had a girl come to the house to wash some of my costumes by hand for me. It's a horrible job... and needs a certain skill...plus I hate doing it myself since I am always afraid I will ruin something! Also, I asked her to do them, because I know she really needs the money and this is a way of helping support her and her family.

One thing I learned from her yesterday is that seemingly it is better for the crystals and colour on the sequins to wash with Fairy/Prill (washing-up liquid for plates) rather than with Persil/Ariel (clothes detergent). It certainly did the job well.....

After she had finished and hung up all the costumes she had done I had a look and I have just realised that I have a bit of a thing for bellydance costumes whicch are either animal print... or very bright colours.... both together is even better!

Aren't they pretty?!!
