Quick Answer: Can you wash a finished cross stitch?

A mild scentless soap like Soak wash is a good choice because it’s gentle and eco-friendly to boot, but regular dish soap works too. Pre-rinse your stitched piece under cool running water. Submerge the piece in the soapy water and let it soak for 15 minutes or up to 1 hour. … Do not scrub.
