What do you do to your linens to make them smell good? I bought a sheet from a thrift store to use for a quilt backing and even after washing, it has a strange smell. Thanks!
I know-some can smell so wonky even after washed. But if you soak it with some laundry soap overnight or even for a few hours, usually it will get rid of the bad odors. Hanging it on the line will help too-sometimes putting it in the dryer, the heat will set that smell into it. Obviously I do not have the time to hang dry all of my sheets, but the really bad ones, it is worth the effort!
You are killing me here Amanda. Just what I need is more vintage linens. They are great tho and I am REALLY TEMPTED!!!!!! We should have a swap, and swap pillowcases or something, that way we would both get different ones than the rest of our stash. :)
