As I near the end of the Marjolein Bastin sampler my mind wanders to how I will handwash it. It is a large cross stitch (see previous post) and as such it has some light dirty marks from fingers and the hoop. So to you my trusted cross stitch friends I have some questions:
What is your favourite method of handwashing cross stitch?
Do you leave your cross stitch in to soak and if so for how long?
What water temperature do you use?
What do you wash it with?
Any other tips?

Thank you in advance of your fabulous tips!
So I have left the red squirrel to stitch on a bowl of scrummy pumpkins and the lower border...
