    As I was purchasing fabric today, the sales clerk told me to be sure to iron the wrong side of the fabric with a dry iron to set the metalic colors in the fabric. Before washing. Is this something new?

    That would make sense maybe it allows it to stay on longer so it doesn't come off as fast. I will try it next time! Thanks for posting this!

    I am glad to learn this little tip about ironing on the wrong side of your fabric, to set the gold accents!! I had never thought about it before. Thank you so much.
    :D :D :D :D

    Oh My! I have loads of Orientals with metalic prints! It would be horrible if it came out in the wash!
    True or not, I'm playing it safe! Thanks for the tip!
