Does anyone have a tried and true method of getting musty smells out of cotton thread? I acquired quite a bit of thread from my mom which had been stored for quite some time in our garage. It’s not a super strong smell and they look to be in great condition but there is enough of a smell that I am not sure I want to use them, particularly for items that will be gifts. Any help will be greatly appreciated
If you can stand to work with it just make the items you want and then wash them. Use vinegar in the rinse.
I’ll store with a dryer sheet or in a box with over if those baking soda fridge box.
I’ll put the fridge box at the bottom, then the thread/yarn around it. Close it up and it’ll be good in a few days.
Before all that… I last it outside it somewhere out of the way and just air it out. Sometimes that’s all it needs
Thanks a bunch
