    Has anyone ever used this testing method?

    Or is there another way to check to see if you have 100% cotton?

    I've used it often, and it does work.

    If I ever have a question about a fabric content, I always to the burn test.

    It really is the best method. Just remember to do it over the kitchen sink with water at the ready!
