For those of you who are new to the blog, let me introduce myself!
I am Faye, Lori’s 5th daughter and one of her twins! When I’m not busy working as an analyst at Target HQ in Minneapolis, you can find me at the pool swimming with my nephews, planning my wedding (only 5 months to go!!), and taking sewing and free-motion quilting lessons from Lori – I’m a novice!
Lori is currently gallivanting around Italy with my dad and my brother (not sure where my invite ended up, ahemm!!), but I have a question that seems perfect for Open Line Friday….
How do YOU clean musty fabric?
My cousins, sisters and I inherited some of our Grandma’s large collection of fabric and ribbons. She was a life long quilter and seamstress, so she has an impressive collection.
It’s been so fun to hold her fabrics and wonder what she had in mind for them! I recognize some of the fabrics she used when she made clothes for our baby dolls or from the quilts she had in her house. I can’t wait to use them myself!
Unfortunately, her sewing room was in her basement, so the fabrics took on the basement smell over the years…. First I must clean!
So far, I’ve tried washing the fabric twice and then letting it hang dry before folding (I used this post on folding fabric).
Have YOU ever encountered this problem??
Do YOU have any tips and tricks for cleaning fabric?
I’d love to learn!
