    Hello all-

    I have a black velvet backdrop that I used a couple of days ago to shoot a baby. The baby's mum and I got overzealous with the bubbles we were trying to get into the shot, and now the residue is all over the velvet. Is it safe to throw in the washing machine? Or will I have to dry clean it (which will cost a small fortune)? Thanks in advance to all!

    eHow.com has some tips, but it looks like the Dry Cleaner is the safest bet - but give it a shot anyway LINK
