I’ve run into this problem before, and I’m wondering if anyone here knows the answer… I recently bought several yards of some stretch lace trim for making lingerie. When I got home I realized that it has this sticky, almost silicone like invisible residue on it. It seemed to come off on my hands too; very weird and unpleasant. I washed it and it’s still sticky, although maybe not quite as much.
This is not the first time I’ve encountered this. I had some other stretch lace in my stash for years and I noticed that it was sticky too. At the time I thought it had gone bad in some way and threw it out. This new lace though is a nice color and I’d like to keep it if there’s someway to deal with the sticky residue.
Does anyone know why it’s sticky? And, can the stickiness be removed? Thanks for any suggestions!
