I have been rejuvenating vintage (antique?) garments and linens for a friend who owns an antique shop. I just came indoors from the clothesline w/an armload of whites. At one time I used a Snowy Bleach and Ivory Snow mixture to soak vintage linens, etc., but Snowy seems to have flown off the shelves. This formula was found in an ancient "Creative Needle" magazine - 4 parts Snowy to 2 parts Ivory Snow. You could soak the garments for up to two weeks in this. It would get very gelatanous, but it was a great whitener. This also removed the "age spots" which abound on old, folded linens. I won't begin to tell you what all I did to renew these items, but all turned out fine. I hadn't needed to use this for years until I started bringing items from the homestead, thought I'd run to Meijers and get a box of Snowy. Have looked everywhere. The closeline/sun helped and also made everything smell better. Had to hurry as DH was on the mower - didn't say anything, as the yard looked like a hayfield. Anyway.....any help would be great. (I finally resorted to some chlorine bleach. I have a theory - if it disintegrates in the laundry, it is not worth saving.) Before anyone gets in a dither about this, I would not do this to a fine linen or batiste Christening dress. Then I would use conservitor methods. These were utility and modestly embroidered little slips and some linens. Now, I have to iron all. Good thing I love to iron!
