For those who traval a lot, save the hair conditioners from your hotel for this.

by kezza2sew 21 Apr 2010

that's great. I only recently cleaned out bathroom cupboard and as you know you usually end up with lots of left over conditioner than shampoo. I kept it as I wash any quilts/wall hangings with conditioner. So will now keep this in mind also...
Thanks to Beth to...

Thank you. I did some FSL for a quilt and I don't remember how many times I rinsed them. Thank you very much for the hint.

Yes, Teri that is a great tip that was shared by ldonnahawkins (Beth) - I believe. I used it on this doily that I shared in projects recently and it was wonderful: - I also had to go around an find all my other doilies and give them a new bath in hair conditioner, too. Hehehe! Thanks for sharing your results, too.

Makes a world of difference, doesn't it! :-)

I'm glad you girls tried it too. I love the effect.

So glad that you shared it with us, too.

How does it work Teri? Do you mix with water?

simplyrosie by simplyrosie 21 Apr 2010

Hi Kay... all I did was squirt a bunch into some warm water in the sink and let my doily sit there for a while... then I rinsed the lace and set it out to dry. Very soft. :-) I wouldn't necessarily do this for bookmarks or anything you may want to keep stiff, but for doilies, most definitely!

Thank you Teri.

Thanks for the tip

Great idea. Hopefully I remember. *4U

by sewmom 21 Apr 2010

That never even crossed my mind. Usually I want a little stiffness to keep the shape, like in bookmarks.

For ornaments or bookmarks, I don't recommend. But definitely for lace you want softened.

by iris2006 21 Apr 2010

I wouldn't have thought about haircondioner but washsoftener, but it is a good tip Teri. Have to try. Thank you

by lenamae 21 Apr 2010

Often wondered how to soften the lace I just avoided it because of the stiffness. thank you so much .

by mad14kt 21 Apr 2010

A lot of us get those sample packs in the mail from time to time. They would be super just for this occassion... I also heard fabric softener is good too but I haven't tried it...FIESTA ;D *2U
