Keeping your knotwork white?
« on: September 02, 2019, 07:42:56 PM »
I have been asked to do some fenders and other decorative knotwork in white cotton but I don?t have any experience from untreated cotton in outdoor use.  Anyone with good tips on how to keep them white and free from mildew? Or is laundry the only way?

White vinegar works for reducing or eliminating mildew.
So, unless you use some kind of preservative/sealer, you are going to have maintenance chores.
