CLEANING VINTAGE LINENS: How to Make Your Holiday Linens Love You!

Christmas celebrations are passed … and I suspect some of you have vintage linens you had hoped to use at Christmas … but you never found/made time to get out the storage stains before the holiday rush.  Maybe next year, right?
May I offer a suggestion? (It’s also called The Voice of Experience.) NOW is the perfect time to take care of those stains … while schedules are still offering a few slower-paced days than usual.
My favorite all-time favorite linen cleaner.?  It’s called Restoration, and it’s available HERE at My Place to Yours on Etsy.
You can read the testimonials — Click the Vintage Linens tab above, then select Restoration … or you can just see for yourself.

Seriously … Isn’t it time to take your vintage pretties from Blah to Beautiful?  I’m here to help you do just that, so feel free to email me with your stain questions (and send pics if you like). We might even feature your “nice save” in a post here at My Place once you and Restoration have worked your magic!
I hope you have a wonderful and safe time bringing in the New Year … and I’ll see you Sunday night with what may be my favorite DIY project ever!
Oh, and don’t forget … as long as it’s postmarked by December 31, it’s not too late to mail an end-of-year gift to your favorite charity.  This one’s mine … and HERE‘s why.  Click on the logo to learn more about Hope.

  4. Hi Susan,
    I live in Australia and am in desperate need of the restoration linen cleaner to use on old linens for our upcoming wedding. Do you still sell it, and would you post to Australia? If not do you have any idea where I may be able to purchase from?
    Kind Regards,
