Love the chocolate pot!!! I wish I could help you but don't have any advice on the washing. I need to know the answer to that myself.

Looks super. I hand wash my pieces with a gentle soap (usually appropriate for babies as it has no fragrance, preservatives, colors etc) and then I roll it up in a towel to soak up the excess water and then I dry it flat on a clothes line.

Hope that helps!

Baby soap. That is a good idea. I don't have a clothes line. I usually iron them wet, on the back, but don't seem to get all the wrinkles out. thanks

I wash my pieces in Orvus or in dishwashing liquid such as Ivory and cold water. Soak for 20 minutes or so, swish, then rinse in cold water until the water runs clear. Roll in a white towel (or an old towel that has been washed many many times so you are sure there is no color bleeding), then unroll onto another dry towel. Iron with a press cloth on the back side while still damp. A pillow case makes a good press cloth. You can also dampen the press cloth. Be sure the iron is hot enough or it won't get the wrinkles out.

Thanks for the advice. Getting wrinkles out seems to be my biggest problem. Maybe my iron is not hot enough. Will jack it up a notch. Very Happy

First, beautiful! This is definately the exiciting part of project for me; when you can see the end in sight. I clean my finished projects with a sudsy bath in Dawn dishwashing liquid, rinse, then lay flat to dry and then iron as needed.
