I bought some bright dark yellow DUCK CLOTH yesterday to cover the board I use as an Ironing board..like in Jennys tutorial. I thought it was DUCK CANVAS, but they said, cloth/canvas same thing. It is 100% cotton.
Question: Do I prewash it? I like the stiffness of it, and I know washing will soften it.. at least I think it will...does everything else. But I also don't want the color fading onto the fabric when I iron, as I use steam and/or starch all the time.
So do I wash it before using it?
