My youngest son just sent me a stack of OLD linens….tablecloths. They have been in the family for years, and are all discolored from being stored improperly, but I’m glad to have them.
How does one treat old table linens? I took the worst one and have got it soaking in OxyClean, but there are some with terrible spots, and I don’t know if the spots will come out.
Can they be dyed easily? What, besides pillows, could a person use them for if the spots won’t come out? Any ideas to share with me? Most of them (there are 7 of them) are Damask, and 1 is beautiful cutwork and some type of sewn on thread, sort of like couching. I am not familiar with linens, but I do remember some of these from Grandmothers house when we had big family dinners on the holidays. (so I know they are old)
