HOW TO WASH A QUILT



How to Wash an Antique Cotton Quilt


It must be understood that there is always a risk in washing an antique quilt. The fabrics are not as strong as on a new quilt, the colors may run, and we do not know what chemicals, if any, have been applied to the quilt. With proper care, a quilt may be washed safely. Use common sense. If the fabrics look like they are about to break, or if some are already torn, then more damage will probably occur.

Don't expect any miracles. We are discussing here how to generally clean the quilt, not get out stains from long ago.
