Thank you for the tip...I have also learned that you can use hair conditioner to shave your legs.

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: http://projects.cuteembroidery.co... - 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.

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

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.

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.

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
