Danger, Will Robinson.  Danger Will Robinson...

Been told (by someone who does costuming for a living) that Woolite 
can cause silk to disintegrate over time.  (Not sure how _much_ time 
or what concentration of Woolite, etc)  If your stitching is in silk, 
you might want to consider skipping the Woolite and going straight to 
the Ivory soap idea.
