How to Launder Embroideries Properly
Use boiling water and a neutral soap to obtain a good lather. Add cold water until reduced to a moderate temperature. In this wash the article quickly without excessive rubbing: rinse thoroughly in clean water of the same temperature. Unsuitable water may impair the lustre of the thread, but this can be restored to its original appearance by immersing the embroidered article in 1 1/2 pints of water to which 1/2 a glasss of white vinegar has been added. Stir in this solution for a few minutes; rinse in clean water. Then squeeze out the water, and lay between folds of a soft cloth so that no two parts of the embroidery touch each other. Roll tightly until cloth absorbs all the moisture. While slightly damp, place face down on a padded ironing board, cover with a clean cloth and press with a medium hot iron until dry.
