Dissolve one large tablespoonful of borax in apint of boiling water; put about a third of it in the first suds in which the garment is to be washed--you should never rub soap directly on woollen goods-another third in the next water; shake the garmentse thoroughly before hanging them up to dry. After the dust has been thoroughly beaten out of the carpets and they are put down again, they can be very much freshened by sprinkling corn meal and talt over them, sweeping it off again. The beet way to clean out lead pipes with out the expensive aid of a plumber is to pour a strongeolution of concentrated lye into them.
