Luv2LuvAntiques 'The Vintage Linen Restorer' Is A Happy One Indeed!

I am a restorer of vintage and antiques, and I especially luv to restore the vintage printed tablecloths and tea towels of the 1930's to 1960's. It is especially gratifying to find others who appreciate vintage linens of the past, and really like using the lovingly used ones!
I found these two vintage towels at an estate sale, thrown willy-nilly, with a bunch of other linens on a long table. They had horrid stains, and most people would think they were destined for the 'rag bag', but not 'this' linen restorer! After hours of soaking, and suncrofting on the line outside, they had but a few very pale spots, and the lovely bright color of the Chicken Today towel caught the eye! The poor Carousel kitchen towel was so faded, but with the much needed TLC...the textured fabric just 'popped'! The lady who purchased them from my etsy shop, left feedback saying how much she loved the towels! :O)
