Help!!! Re: Vinegar solution for less fading
I posted that comment. :)
You soak your never-before-washed article in a solution of one part vinegar to one part water, doesn't matter how much as long as it's equal parts.
I always use a cup of water to a cup of vinegar and do only one item at a time.
Hope this helps! ;)
After the 1/1 soak, wash items normally and machine dry on low heat till slightly damp. I hang my damp bibs over the clothesline (indoors) but someone else said they shape them and dry them flat. Whatever works for you.
I'm sending a few off in the mail later this month. Likely, the expectant mom will want to wash them herself w/her own products before using them on her baby.
Back on July 24 I posted a "Helpful Tip" about soaking dishcloths in vinegar and water to make them more colorfast.
I only mentioned it that it was "my comment" in case my tip was the post you were referring to. :)
I should have been clearer in my comments :)
