My mother always told me to “wash” the fabric I was going to sew with, prior to sewing, using the same method I would later use to wash my completed garment. For example, if I was going to machine wash and dry my garment, I should machine wash and dry my fabric before sewing.
I have two pieces of lining, one polyester, and one Ambience rayon lining that I wish to dry clean. My finished garments will also be dry cleaned. My local dry cleaner refuses to dry clean pieces of fabric but won’t give me an explanation. They just say they won’t do it.
Does anyone have any ideas where/how I can dry clean my two pieces of lining?
