Use a small tub to wash clothes if there is still dirt on the clothes. Metal bales can cause oxidation, which can leave rust stains on clothes, so plastic pipes are preferred. Wrap garments in nylon mesh to support them. Fill the bathtub with lukewarm water and wet clothes for two to three hours to loosen dirt and old soap trapped in the clothes. Remove clothes and empty the bathtub.
Don a pair of white gloves to make sure you do not transfer your own dirt and oils garment. If you do not have gloves, wash your hands carefully before touching the garment. Because water can weaken fabrics, just try vacuuming someone dirt the clothes before hand washing. Lay the garment out flat. Use a low suction vacuum with a sterile brush attached the hose to clean the front and back of the dark purple bedding. Hold vacuum an inch or so above the garment when working.
Whether you are planning to frame dark purple bedding sets as a strange and charming decorative addition to your nursery, or dress your child in a family-run baptismal dress, be sure to care before cleaning antique clothing. Old fabric can be sensitive, so the Henry Ford Museum recommends having them cleaned by a professional who specializes in taking care of antique garments. If you choose to try to clean them yourself, check the inside of the garment. There may be a small piece of fabric that you can cut from a seam. Test detergent on it before cleaning the entire garment
