I've used Fels Naptha bar soap to clean stains on old quilts similar to those you are describing. Be gentle and, as always, test a small area before you get into major cleaning. Good luck.

Everywhere I look, really. I do have a funny story about a friend who, visiting the local synagogue, had occasion (and that's another whole story) to go in the men's room. She was taken by the tile...

I had to laugh. I deliberately keep my ironing board across the room from my sewing table so that I have to get up and down and take those few steps. Easier on my back and knees in the long run. ...
