Recommended washing instructions for handmade table runners and doilies made of natural fabrics, such as cotton, linen and lace are to machine or hand wash and line dry.
* Gentle detergent or soap (Ivory/Woolite) can be used with the gentle cycle of your wash. A large bath towel, hung over a shower rod, makes a perfect ‘indoor clothes line’ for drying textile linens.
* Many times, machine drying can cause the fabric to become damaged and it may even shrink. If you must use a dryer, use the gentle cycle / tumble with no heat. Do not over-dry as this may cause any wrinkles to ‘set’.
* For heavily soiled table runners, soak the linens in cold water for a few hours (or even overnight) prior to washing.
* The fastest, most reliable way of achieving that ‘just ironed’ look for your table linens is to have the table runner table linen pressed by your local dry cleaners.
This fine vintage handmade white cotton linen and crochet lace oval table runner would make a beautiful addition to your fine table linens.
