Please check out her website she has amazing items for sale. Recently I bought a very beautiful large hand crocheted table cloth. In checking it out for any defects I missed a stain. My bad. So I am going to try one of Em's solutions (the Oxi Clean) and see if this works. I will let you know the results. P.S. I have used Oxi Clean many times on my rugs with wonderful results. 

Yeah the stain came out. It looks brand new.
