How To Clean Your Straw Handbag
Since spring is here and alot of you may be pulling out your straw handbags, I thought I would repost my tip that I first posted for you in 2009.
Vacuum your straw handbag for a routine cleaning, using low suction and placing an old nylon stocking over the end of the nozzle to protect the straw. Use a soft cloth or cotton swab to apply undiluted detergent to dirty or greasy spots, then wipe with a clean cloth dampened in cool water and leave to air dry. Don't use warm water, which can distort the straw. If the straw is reasonably firm, you can apply an aerosol fabric protector to help keep the bag from becoming soiled. Let the coating dry thoroughly before using the bag or it will rub off on your clothing.

One Of My Paternal Lines
Never permit yourself to become the weak link in the chain of your generations.
Welcome! Please pour yourself a cup of tea and settle in and relax with me awhile. As you'll notice, I am captivated by ancient times, a soul misplaced in this modern day. I have a love for my ancestry and I believe people who grow up without a sense of how yesterday has affected today, are unlikely to have a strong sense of how today affects tomorrow.
