Default Retro clean in UK.

I have stains on my quilt which I am sure from your comments retro clean would move. BUT I have googled searched etc and can't find it in the UK. Is there something similiar or does some one know how I can get it.
I which the Amazon USA and amazon UK would link up for these things.

Thank you my quilt is a real mess.

The manufacturer is on this website. They do ship internationally, but the rates may be exorbitant.

Do a search here on the board. I know that's where I got mine from was a site found here. I'm sorry, I can't remember the name but its also where I got my EQ 7 program and both were a great price.

It depends on what the stain is, as to which cleaner will clean it up. I used boiling water followed by lemon juice to get coffee stains out of my grandmother's white cotton table cloth. For stains like blood or grass, use the enzyme cleaner sold to remove pet urine odor. For mildew, it needs an oxidator, an oxygen bleach like oxyclean. For oil, Dawn Dish detergent. There are books which you should be able to find at your library that tell you how to remove stains depending on the fabric and the type of stain. With old textiles you have to guess at the type of stain and sometimes the type of fabric.
