I purchased some lawn from a fabric store that is closing and when I got it home I noticed a very distinct bolt line down the front. I washed it but it did not go away. I just used Tide. Is there something else I can try? Has anyone been able to remove a line like this before?

Can you cut around the line and just avoid that part of the fabric? I don't know what caused your bolt line, but often it is sun damage to the fabric which has bleached out the exposed edge which happens to be the fold down the middle. If it is dirt, you could try various stain removers and maybe something would work. Good luck.
