They are both in perfect condition, the only problem being, they are dirty. Does anyone know how to clean them? I imagine they need to be hand washed, but will be very heavy and fragile when wet. The last thing I want to do is ruin them. How would I go about drying them? What do I wash them with? meaning the type of cleaner, or detergent. Would I use detergent?
Even though the beds were smaller in the past, the spread fits my queen size bed. Although I would like to keep it out, as I am sure it is meant to be seen, I probably will just put in on the blanket chest and not use it as a spread.
This is the tablecloth. The color seems to be ecru, so I don't think it is meant to be white at all. Won't the holiday table to pretty when the table is decorated using this tablecloth? I also was given silver napkin rings, with grandma's children's names on them. So I am just thrilled to have my fathers napkin ring. The laundry was only done once a week, so each family member had their own napkin, which had to last them all week. Putting your name on the napkin ring made sure you always used your own napkin.
Other treasures I was given, are dishes, tea pots and tea cups. Oh what fun, it will be to once again use these treasures.
