Ohh cool, I am off to buy some Biz. It is that time of year when I pull out all my old white linens that has foxing and wash them all. I will try your method. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. xoxox Clarice

I've had really good luck using Oxy-Clean for the stubborn stains. Let them soak for a while, even overnight. You can also make a paste by adding a little water to the powder and scrub it in with a soft toothbrush. Just make sure you rinse it out really well.

I don't worry too much about stains either. You'll still end up with tons of fabric to work with!

I have also boiled the linens in water that has detergent mixed in, for about 5 minutes...its amazing how white they get!!

In Australia we have a produce called Napisan which I think is equivalent to the products you mention here. Oh Susan, are you selling the cloth and napkins with the teapots on? If so, may I have first pick?? I LOVE them to bits! Tell me how much you want for them!!

Thanks so much for sharing this, Susan. I've tried Oxy-clean with some luck. I had no idea the old linens were colorfast. I also learned a new term - "foxing".

Cheers! LA

I forgot to ask - is this sink in your house or the shop? I love the striped cabinets. :)

That's my laundry room/mud room at home. I painted the cabinets to match the wallpaper in my adjoining kitchen. It's super easy to do. I just used painters tape to tape off the stripes.

Thanks, Susan...all good advice. And that's the cutest laundry sink I've seen in a long time! xoC

I've looked at several web sites for advice on how to launder old linens, but this was by far the easiest to follow. Thanks, Susan!
