Dryell makes a killer, real deal, spot remover for clothes. Works great on woven clothing - use a drop or two and rub. Dries with no rings. Go slow with silk, sweaters, any thing that is thick or has a knap. Wick and blot anything you really care about. Use a very light touch. Put a small DROP on a stain use a corner of a tissue to WICK the stain and solution away. Repeat. and combine with light blotting with a white towel.
