Fabric sizing - how to remove?
I bought some fabric, and when I got it home, it smelled so strongly of formaldehyde that I tried to take it back to the store. Unfortunately, it was on sale so I couldn't. The smell wasn't noticeable in the store or I wouldn't have bought it.
I know formaldehyde is used in fabric sizing, but how do I get it out? I've heard that you can soak the cloth in something, baking soda maybe? Borax? and then wash it and it will be OK to wear.Is this true, or does anybody have any other suggestions.
