Advice Needed!

I taught my linen wholecloth workshop today for the Sierra Gold Quilt Guild and one of my students, Iola Gibbs from Pioneer, had a question for me and I need advice from my readers. She has some old quilts that were soiled with cat urine several years ago. She was asking for advice on how to clean these. I thought it was a significant enough of a problem to post it for good advice from everyone...I'm sure she isn't the only one who has been faced with this problem. Thank you for any advice you can offer. Cindy

I don't know if this will work with cat urine or not but I always start by using Vintage soak on my flea market/thirfy store finds. Soak for a good 12 hours rinse and see how it looks then soak again. Great stuff! No affiliation with them just love the product.

I've heard of people adding 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar to their wash. I've also heard about using hydrogen peroxide. But I'd test both on a small spot to see what happens.
