I remember several years ago that Martha had a recipe for soaking antique clothing and linens to remove stains. If I remember correctly it contained Biz. Can anyone help me with this recipe.

Thank you
Bonita

I use just Biz. You can soak it safely for days, if needed. But 24 hours usually does the trick.

Martha just used Biz, as far as I know....nothing else but Biz and water. I've had to soak for
a week or two, but have had good luck with Biz.

Didn't Martha change the garment to a fresh mixture every so often? She didn't leave the article in the same mixture for long periods of time.

I've soaked for 3-4 days without changing the water, although if something is heavily soiled with dirt, you might want to change it after a day or so.
