Clean Quilt Day

Clean Quilt Day

One of my first quilts. Imperfect, and I love it. :)

You know those little things in life that shouldn’t be special, but are? For example: clean sheet day. This is an unofficial holiday my husband and I celebrate rather infrequently. Don’t judge me, but rather than a weekly clean sheet day, we rejoice during my *ahem* bimonthly changing of sheets.

An even bigger holiday? Clean quilt day. As I’ve been on a quilting kick, I decided it was time to soak our bedroom quilt in Oxiclean and restore it to it’s beautiful white, blue, and green condition. The dingy gray, blue and green combo just wasn’t doing it for me anymore.

Oxiclean in the tub full of warm water for a few hours yield one nasty tub full of nasty nasty water.

Nasty.

Several hours later, all my bedding was dry, the bed was made, and my room smells lovely. Clean Quilt Day: a very special occasion indeed!

    Do you handwash them? I just toss my quilts in the washer/dryer with everything else…

    • HAHAHAA DO I HANDWASH THEM???? No. I do NOT handwash them. :) I did soak it in oxiclean because it was sooo bad, and my HE washer isn’t great at soaking things. After I soaked it, I used my mommy muscles to drag it into the washer. Fortunately it was 2 feet from the tub because that quilt weighed a thousand pounds, I kid you not.
