SCORE: vintage handkerchiefs


Recommended Posts

i found a stack of over 50 vintage hankies for $10 this am  wow, when I sorted through them there is enough to make three nice size quilts in three colorways.  That said,  a few of the light ones need stain removal.  Does anyone know the name of the product ypunuse to soak vintage linens.  i cannot remember it.

Hi Nancy Jo! Use Retro Clean to soak the hankies. It's not expensive and easy to find. It takes hot water and if there are heavy stains, more than one treatment. Works like a charm! If you haven't seen (Quilting Vintage) on Facebook, join to see lots of projects and advice for backing and stabilizing the hankies for use in quilts. Fun!
