Here is another treasure I saved from the trash at the charity shop – a stunning tablecloth made of, I’m not sure, some kind of rayon? There’s no fiber content on the German tag, but it’s all slinky and shimmery – definitely not even a little bit of cotton in there. Only some of it visible in this photo, but this tablecloth is very, very badly stained – there’s large yellow stains, little pink ones all over – it’s a mess. But I absolutely have to at least try and save it – it’s so beautiful (those bright colors, they kill me!), I’d love to be able to use it as a tablecloth for special occasions.
So – this is an open call for help! Any washing / stain-budging advice to share? Any experience with saving vintage textiles that might help me out? Pretty please, shout it out!
