WASHING COLORED COTTONS
Boil 2 qts. of bran in water for ½ hour, let it cool, then
strain it and mix the liquid with the water in which the things are to be
washed. They will only require rinsing, as the bran will stiffen them
sufficiently. For colored muslins, rice water is very good, as it helps to
preserve the color; but, although it makes white muslin clear, it sometimes
gives a yellow tinge. When used, it should previously be boiled in the
proportion of 1 lb. of rice to one gallon of water. No soap is required.
BEST HARNESS POLISH IN THE WORLD
Alcohol, 1 gallon; white turpentine, 1 ½ lbs; gum shelac, 1
