    Thank you so much for the dryer tip on washing the filter. I would never have thought of it causing a fire.

    I read--somewhere--a long thread about used dryer sheets for foundations. Not advised--apparently very flammable.

    Always dry the fabrics before cutting it for a swing. Because every tailor makes wet new fabric sheets for exact and pure looking of fabric sheets. You rightly said that Plain old baking soda works extremely well for this and is cheaper and much safer. Because its not harm the fabric like other products. There are a big number of cleaning products which doing that job but baking soda is best for this purpose.
