Hello friends! I am having a dilemma and thought I would pose the problem to all of your wonderful minds.
I have a fantastic piece of hunter green cotton fabric which is about 4 1/2 yards long. Since this is a fabulous length for making a dress, I'm not going to throw it away, but it is driving me crazy! I have been trying to prep the fabric by washing, drying, and ironing. Well....now I have a hunter green washer, dryer, and iron. I'm currently washing it for the third time now.
Do any of you have any suggestions for purging the excess color? Should I be washing it in hot water instead of cold? Drying on high heat? Beating it with a baseball bat?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
I hadnt thought about vinegar..but ,I bet that would work too?? be worth a try..
