Yikes! My basement flooded and the Shadow Tent got wet and dried. Now, the beautiful white nylon is water stained. Anybody have any recommendations on cleaning this? Can the stain be removed? I already asked Brian at Creative Magic, and they had no good suggestions. Smile

Take them in to a local dry cleaner and ask for advice. If that doesn't work, you might get a cheap light colored (white may not be available) nylon laundry bag from a Dollar Store or Wal Mart and measure it in the store to see if it is large enough to use as a replacement. If it is, that may be your best solution. Who says the tent has to be black and white anyway?

Try soaking it in Oxy-Clean. That has worked for me countless times!

There is a product called Iron out or Rust out. It might clean it out. I know we used to recommend that to housewife who did not heed our warning for discolored water during hydrant flushing. I would think it could help if you can soak the whole unit in it and then rinse it off to dry.

I've never seen a shadow box with any other color than white. Smile

Good suggestions so far. I wonder if OxyClean isn't the way to go...a big bathtub of OxyClean. Toss the dog in there too! Smile

You don't need a big bathtub - Just a washing machine tub...

Instead of trying chemicals try a fabric coloring company. They could give a fresh white color.

Oh and don't forget your house insurance. From their money you could buy a new if you smart enough. Smile Smile Smile (just kidding)

Best,

Las
