Okay, I've got 'enough stash' for many quilts to come. Mostly fabrics bought new. I don't wash till before starting a new quilt.
I have about a 10x12 quilt room (guessing). It includes a nice sized dresser, a standup plastic pull-out drawer storage, and about 10 cloth boxes in cubicles in the closet 1/2 filled with fabrics.
I spent the past few days cleaning the whole room top to bottom, dusting bookshelves and book tops, surge protectors, under and around every piece of furniture, every surface possible. I still detect some odor like a linen closet. I've had cedar balls in some of the drawers/boxes but wonder, what do others do?
Do I need to take out all my fabrics & run them through the dryer with dryer sheets to freshen them up? Take them outside for a day of fresh air? Store them in a different manner? How?
The room is CLEAN but not as fresh smelling as I want to enter winter with....
A friend gave me a gallon of lavender water awhile back. I haven't used it much. Not sure I want everything smelling like lavender. Any ideas how could that be used?
