Recently, I had an email from an About.com Cross Stitch member who wondered what I use to clean my stitching. Well, I typically use a few drops of mild detergent like dishwashing liquid. If I have a stain, how I treat it depends on what it is. For example, if I managed to prick myself and bleed on the project, I soak it in cold water until the stain is out. Other stains require different solutions.
But, I am not talking about stained projects in the poll - I am just interested in how you clean your projects. Here we are just removing the grime that can attach itself to a project from daily stitching.
