    Aging spots

    I have some old material that has some spots on it from sitting around in a box for several years. I saw on here before some tips for getting them out but can't remember what might work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Ditto here. Iv'e used oxyclean on vintage feedsack blocks my mother made years ago. It worked, made them look like brand new. I think I soaked them for several days.

    I was given an old vintage quilt top that had age spots and staining....I made a warm bath of BIZ and soaked the quilt top, right side down, into the bath for a few hours. All stains and spots...gone! I also use it to soak the yellowing of vintage hankies and old pillowcases, etc. They come out like new! Good luck!

    I always use Restoration. No affiliation, just a great product for vintage textiles, from someone who has taken many classes on vintage fabrics, fabric dating, etc.
