Vintage Pot Holders

A friend of mine was cleaning out her vintage linen collection and passed these on to me.  I soaked them in Biz for several days and then washed them on a hand wash cycle in a lingerie bag .  They came out unscathed and practically like new.  I think they are wonderful.  Can you believe the work that went into these babies?  They may protect against some heat, but I doubt they are as heat proof as the new oven mittens.  I would imagine they were more a decorator item for the kitchen  Never the less, they are loaded with vintage charm and the colors are still as vibrant as can be.
Totally charming if you ask me!!

Wow! you lucked out! They're beautiful! I will have to try the Biz soak for the few that I have, never displayed them b/c they looked kinda dingy.
