I volunteered to help a friend with her antique quilt. I think the quilt is from the 40's or 50's. Some of the material and thread are disintergrating. I have stabilized the outer edges, put a binding on it, and hand quilted most of the missing thread. It's pretty fragile, dingy and it has some stains.
What would be the best way to clean this quilt? Should I put it in a pillow case, soak it in detergent and rinse it in vinegar? Can I use Dry Cleaner's Secret? Should I just leave it alone. It's not bothering my friend, it's bothering me! LOL. Any help on cleaning this quilt would be appreciated. Thanks lots.
