Removing embroidery stencil ink
I cut up an old linen tablecloth into guest towel size pieces. The cloth was stenciled with an embroidery pattern. I do not do hand embroidery so thought using it for something else was a great idea. It is not new, many years old but in perfect condition. But now I cannot seem to get the ink off the fabric. I have tried just washing it with laundry soap, soaking it in vinegar and water, and even tried bleach and water bath. It has not been put in the dryer. I am out of ideas.
