02 Feb Caring for Eco Printing Textiles

How do you care for your eco printed textiles to ensure that they give years of use? I always wash mine in the washing machine on the wool setting (usually at 20 to 30 degrees Celsius) using the same gentle olive oil soap that I washed them with in preparation for printing. These particular pieces line drying today have been worn and washed for at least 3 full years each and as you can see the colours are still vibrant.
Below is very short video sharing how I create my liquid soap from a solid bar. Please note that this is exactly the same way I would make a liquid if I needed one when wet felting!
