I was always told that when pre-washing fabric, one should wash it as the finished quilt will be washed. Then yesterday, I reading a quilt magazine and the writer of the article said fabric softener, either liquid or sheets should never be used. No reason given. The thing is, when I do laundry, I almost always use fabric softener, and I would imagine most people do. So my question is, when pre-washing fabric, use or don't use fabric softener? And if not, why? Thanks.
