I have been ironing vintage linens.
It is not unusual to find single pillowcases.
I do not fret about that. I pair them with another one in similar tones.
These pillowcases are terribly soft and I have two or four on our bed at all times.
I sell matching pairs when I find them.
This little table scarf will be sold on consignment.
It is in perfect condition. I soak all my vintage linens in OxyClean and hot water.
Be patient when doing this, sometimes I soak them for twenty-four hours and change out the water and OxyClean. I use several scoops of Oxy depending on the amount of stain present.
This does not damage embroidery or fine fibers like Clorox does.
If I have a persistent stain I make a paste with OxyClean and put it directly on the stain. I already have a stain so what do I have to lose?
This large rectangular table cloth was stained a lot.
They are gone now but it does have some holes which is fine because that means I keep it.
I had a helper.
You can pick up stained vintage linens at tag sales, estate sales, and garage sales for a few dollars or less and turn them into beautiful accents for your bed or tables. If you have not tried the Oxyclean method I encourage you to do so and let me know how it worked for you.
