Cat Bites Create Bloody Quilt Problem
On another forum, a lady is inquiring on how to get blood stains out of her quilt that has delicate applique on it. Seems that she has her cat sleep with her and when she touches the cat while asleep, it bites her.
She does not want to send her quilt to the cleaners as she is afraid that they will damage it and does not want to wash it in her washing machine as the delicate applique will surely be damaged in the washer.
My one thought was that she should hand wash it and place towels on top and fold sides toward center over towels and the begin rolling from one end, pressing as you roll to get most of the water out, then put on sheet in yard to let sun dry it, or hand on clothesline.
I have not answered her inquiry. What would you suggest?
