Has anyone tried Retro Clean Soak? Eleanor Burns talks of it in her latest First Lady Block video and sells it on her site. It is supposed to remove age spots from old quilts. I'm thinking of trying it on an old quilt my great grandma made and just wondered if anyone has any experience with it.

I have seen comments from perhaps 3 people here who used it and liked it. Mostly they raved about it; haven't seen any negative comments.

The website I have seen for it is http://www.retroclean.com ; has some information about the product there.

It's nice to know people are liking it. The price is the same on the retro clean website as it is on Quilt in a Day. I need to find out the shipping from retro clean. Quilt in a Day is $6 to ship!

I ordered from RetroClean.com & paid $15, including shipping, for the 1 lb bag.

Thanks for the info! I love Quilt in a Day, but I can't pay $6 for shipping if I can get it free elsewhere. :D

I haven't used it yet. I have some old linens handsewn & embroidered by my Grandmother. She was known for her exquisite handsewing. Too bad I didn't inherit that from her. My handsewning is absolutely lousy lol. Anyways - I hope they clean up nicely with the RetroClean.
