      Hi Colleen. When you write ‘costumes’, do you mean swimming costumes with mildew? In relation to the yellowed leotards, see Spotless A-Z, p. 405. Dip in methylated spirits and wring tightly. Wash according to the fabric, and dry in sunshine. If stubborn, mix 2 teaspoons of 3 per cent hydrogen peroxide in a 9-litre bucket of body temperature water. Immerse the item, put a dinner plate on top to keep it fully in the solution. Leave for 6 hours. Remove and wash according to the fabric.

      If the stain is fresh, blot with or soak in white vinegar. If the stain is old, wipe with 2 drops of glycerine and leave for 90 minutes. Then blot with or soak in white vinegar. In both cases, wash according to the fabric. Dry on the clothesline or clothes airer. You can buy Spotless A-Z here.

      The answer is in Spotless A-Z, p. 300. Remove excess under the tap using cold water. Massage with a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid on your fingertips until the liquid feels like jelly.
