Removing a Stain from a Baby QuiltI have an old baby quilt that was handmade and is in good shape and probably colorfast, but it has been in storage for a long time. I laundered it and dried it like usual; and then noticed a brown stain over part of it. I do not know how to get rid of it and what the cause of it was. I thought I laundered it before I put it into storage. I had it in storage in a plastic blanket bag until I removed it recently to launder it.
