Antique American potholders

I have several American-born friends who married Australian men, and have lived here ever since. One of these ladies (D) told me that her Nanny stitched many articles for her and her sister over the years, and D brought most of them to Australia when she came to live here. She was showing them to me the other day, and bemoaning the condition they were in, with old stains that probably wouldn't come out. I said "Just lend them to me for a few days. I'll treat them to some Napisan magic". I think D will be delighted when she sees her Nanny's pot holders almost as good as new! She gave me her permission to photograph them for my blog.

Wow, they look great! I found a place to get Napisan here in Texas, so I'll have to give it a try.
