The Care and Storage of Quilts

*** Tip: How to remove pencil marks ***
3 parts rubbing alcohol
1 part water

1 or 2 drops of clear dish detergent (NOT enough to foam up)

Using a fluffy towel underneath and a soft toothbrush, gently rub solution on pencil marks. This is best done after the quilt is quilted and bound to prevent fabric stretching.
