How do I safely clean counted cross stitch pieces?
My daughter did 10 blocks of counted cross stitch and wants me to incorporate them into a quilt, but they have some stains/discoloration on them, and I am wondering the safest way to clean them. Any suggestions or help that I can get will be greatly appreciated.
Attachment 307515This is the first picture and not sure if you can see the discoloration. The pictures measure about 12x15.
Attachment 307516This is the second picture. She marked on her folder that these were in, when she had completed them, and she had completed the first one in 1984. So, age does play a part in the discoloration.
Thanks for any help/advice that anyone can give me.
