Duty-free vodka disaster

My cousin was having a destination wedding and wasn't able to pack her dress in her suitcases so my other cousin said he'd take a spare suitcase for her. While waiting in the airport he stopped a duty free, bought himself a bottle of vodka, and took it on the plane with him a long with the dress. Before getting on the plane the flight attendants told him he'd have to put the vodka in the carry-on (he had one personal bag (his laptop/briefcase), one bag the vodka was in, and the wedding dress carry-on). He stowed the carry-on in the overhead compartment and over the 13 hour flight, and day of traveling he spent getting to the wedding destination the seal on the vodka bottle had broken and it began to leak all over the dress. 

The dress looked COMPLETELY ruined, as if it had been in a fight and was bruised all over. I have no idea how vodka could do that to a dress, but it was all kinds of blue, purple, red and pink. It was awful. While everyone was freaking out he took it to a dry cleaner (I didn't even know he knew what a dry cleaner was to be honest) and it all came out. WHO THE FUCK KNOWS HOW, but you can dry clean vodka out of Spanish lace and silk.

  1. Oh my god, I was on the edge of my seat for a minute there. This confirms my theory that dry cleaners run the universe.

  2. The vodka probably made the dye on the lining of the bag, or from the dude's other clothing, run onto the dress (why wasn't it in a garment bag??!!). Alcohol is crazy on dye and ink, it can take a pen mark off a leather bag, which i something I try no to think about as I pour vodka sodas down my throat.

  3. Dont wanna hate on the dry cleaners, but is it possible that he just bought another one? That would make him even more of a superhero.

    Did this all happen without the bride knowing? Ditto on drycleaners run the universe. They should wear their underpants on the OUTSIDE. And a cape. Of course.
