  1. Boo hoo! I've been making doilies for the bazaar and 3 of them have red and white in them. When I starched them, one turned out just fine. So I put two of them in the starch together - different day and new starch solution. And boy did they bleed! I must have used a different ball of red thread (a donation). I've crocheted for years and have never had this problem. I did some googling and got some suggestions, but thought I'd check here and see if I can get better ideas. Most of the suggestions were for BEFORE I soak it in the starch. I've read about vinegar to set the colors, hydrogen peroxide to take the red out of the white, but the way this pattern is created, it won't work. I'm at a loss. Shall I chalk it up to experience and make new doilies?
  2. I made my mom the dishrag with the red/white/blue peaches and cream, when she was dishes the blue and red are bleeding onto the white. She is just using reg dish soap, no bleach. This is frustrating to me. I bought several that have mult. colors and am now afraid to make dishrags with it. Any ideas? I suggested she try soaking it in saltwater to see if that would work. I was very embarrassed, 1st I ever gave to anyone. Jeannie
