Patriotic lap quilt
Quilt size: 66" x 81" Made from cotton & flannel fabrics.
Machine wash: Wash on gentel cycle using gentler fabric detergents. Some quilts might bleach in the machine, so you can try adding a color catcher and a Retayne to your washing water. Machine dry until your quilt is slightly damp, then continue air drying outside.Hand wash: Before hand-washing, ensure that the sink or tub you use is very clean. Fill the tub with cold water and add some detergent (perfume-free and dye-free.) Dip your quilt in water and ensure all parts of it are totally submerged. Keep tumbling the quilt once in a while for about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain the soapy water and refill the tub with fresh water. Add distilled white vinegar (1/2 cup) to the water. This will rid any residue left behind by the detergent. It will also ensure the colors appear bright and ensure the quilt remains soft. Air Dry: Dry quilt flat to prevent the threads from snapping during drying. If you have a giant quilt rack for drying making sure to support the quilt while transporting. If not, prepare a bed of thick towels and spread it out nicely on them. .
