FreeSpirit recommends the following:
- Pre-wash yardage with like colors in hot water using the specially formulated detergent Synthrapol (available at most quilt shops).
- If you are working with dark colors that will be appliqued to light backgrounds, pre-wash the yardage of each fabric with like colors separately. Do not pre-wash cut applique pieces.
- When washing a finished project, we recommend cold water with Synthrapol.
