Thank you for recommending the little book “Laundering Liturgical Linens“. It has been a great help to me as a new sacristan with almost no training.
This past Sunday I asked our priest if he would like to do the first rinsing, and he looked at me like I had sprouted a second head.
Now I need to be sure all the other sacristans are rinsing the linens into the sacrarium prior to laundering, because I was not trained to do that!
Again, thank you for pointing us in the right direction.
My work here is done.
