  1. Allison, these posts just make my day. Who knew about the vodka? This doesn't mean less martini's for me, does it?

  2. I tell ya, this is why I need this site. Am I going to go home and go through my towels (they're all pretty new) or iron them? Sorry but no. But I am going to take the basket that sits out and holds all the plain workhorse cloths that I didn't have room for in the drawer and the drawer with my pretty towels and switch them. I mean, as Brini would say, now why didn't i think of that?
    P.S. In referece to the pressed flower puttery treat o' the day- mine always get moldy. How do you press them in a book with out such nasty side affects?

  3. Jen, try microwaving the flower in between two sheets of kitchen towel for a few seconds at a time before you press it between the pages of a book…

  4. My mom tells me that it takes cotton a couple days of being soaked in water for the fibers to fully "open" and release stains. She adds non-chlorine bleach, and she has many crisp, clean, vintage linens to her credit.

  5. here in Florida we have a nasty problem with "Florida rust" which is a brownish stain that forms on linens when you store them. Tablecloths, napkins, runners, everything, you put them away and when you take them out they have horrible brown stains that CANNOT be removed. Can anybody help me?

  6. I work for a cruise company and my biggest problem is heavy stains caused during cruising. Normally the it takes 6-7 days cruising and we don't have a proper laundry on the ship for laundering these heavy stains normally our linen are white.
