Sizing in fabric

I wish to remove sizing from dress fabric prior to making up. Could you advise the quickest, most effecient method please? I have tried washing. Could I add vinegar to the rinse water?

Many Thanks,  Sue

    Sorry about not getting back to you sooner, I swear I did respond but it seams it did not post. In answer to your question, I find it a little strange that the initial washing did not remove the sizing. In almost all cases washing materials from the fabric store before cutting into them will remove the sizing. Can you tell me what the fiber content of the material is?
    You could try vinegar in the rinse water but use only white vinegar otherwise you could stain it and in some cases vinegar can remove color from a fabric. Start with a very little amount. Hope that helps.
