How does one care for and clean a quilt?
Like any fine fabric, if properly cared for, handled, and cleaned a quilt will last for a lifetime. Amish women confidently state, “A finely crafted quilt will last for generations.” We agree. Printed care and washing instructions are supplied with each quilt. If needed, spots can be removed with mild soap and water while using a wash cloth or sponge. Overall cleaning can be done in a wash machine, on gentle cycle with mild laundry soap. Air drying is preferred or machine drying on very low heat can be done, removing the quilt before it is completely dry. Commercial dry cleaning should never be used to clean any quilt, as it is too harsh, removing fabric dyes, and mechanically stressing the fabric and stitching.
