How to Soften Tulle

Tulle, a netted fabric, is a common choice in the construction of formal gowns as well as for making tutus and wedding veils. Tulle is a fitting option for adding puff to the skirt of a dress or making a full-bodied tutu because of its stiff quality. When it comes to a wedding veil and some other projects, though, you might want a softer feel to the tulle.

Place the tulle in the washing machine. Add the appropriate amount of washing powder and fabric softener to the machine for the size load the tulle makes up.

Set the machine to the proper load size and to either a hot or warm wash cycle. Run the washing machine. Run the tulle through the machine a couple more times, with only fabric softener.

Dry the tulle in the dryer.
