Re: Quiet washing burlap ??


Date: Sun Jun 22 2003 - 08:01:59 PDT

I tried to wash heavy canvas (like for paintings) in the washing machine and had the most incredible mess ever! It frayed and all of the strings tied together (I had about 20 pieces that I'd cut up and hoped to use for a variety of things, but it was sooooo dirty....). It came out of the washer in one huge piece and wound up going straight into a garbage bag. So much for good intentions and trying to be thrifty! ;-)
