    washing decorator fabric?

    I bought some cotton decorator pre-quilted decorator fabric but it says recommend dry cleaning on it. sigh. has anyone washed this type of fabric?

    Most if not all decorator fabric has a coating on it to resist color fade and resist dirt and staining. If you wash the fabric you will remove that coating and alter the hand of the fabric. It probably will do OK but it may destroy it completely. It also might not be cotton, another problem when washing is involved.

      hmmm, i thought so. So I will use it as is and just hopefully remember never to wash the storage bag I make from it. i took the other one i had apart because it shrank so much the zipper was all rippled. but it was covered with black cat hair. i'd stored it under the bed, one cats favorite hiding place. Was. no bed skirt anymore so she will have to be more sociable. Thanks.
