washing quilts

If your quilts are vintage or hand-made, wash them with care. Use the delicate setting on your machine, and avoid the agitation cycles – just soak and rinse.

Gentle, eco-friendly detergents made especially for wool or delicates are best.

And when you store vintage quilts, fold them a new way every time. It avoids wear and fraying along the creases.
