MORE LAUNDRY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 27 January 1915

MORE LAUNDRY HINTS. The use of 'hot water for sprinkling clothes will result in them being damp ed more evenly. Serviettes, after they have been washed, should be dipped in boiling water, wrung out lightly be tween two starched cloths, and ironed with a very hot iron. This will pro duce highly glossed and beautifully stitf linen. Articles that possess patent fast- | oners should be fastened up before they are washed; the sprint! will not then be injured. A good tip when washing a number of dinall articles, such as handkerchiefs, cutis, collars, and laces, is spread them out and fasten them with smull pins to a large towel. This towel id then peg ged to the line. Not so much room is occupied by this method, and another great advantage. is that, in the event of rain there is only ont article to be un fastened from' tlio line. ~ Linen can bo given a faint c^amy tinge by uot putting any blpojnto ;the ^turch, and if.it is desired, that the cream color should be' even .deeper a ;suiall qu...

£16,000,000 PER WEEK. WHAT THE NAVY SAVES U# In the course of an article on 'No Naval Battle — which appears in the current isaUEiof the MFortnightly iteview,' Mr. Archibald Hurda says that the German Fleet, which, during the past tlfteen years cost £30U,000,0UU to maintain, has completely failed to fullil any single one of the hopes on which it was based. I Declaring that the British people would do well to be duly grateful for the blcHsiug* which have been theirs owing to naval predominance during the past three mouths, Mr Ifurd says that in the absence of complete command of the sea the British people would have had to face tho following weekly bill: — luereaso in the cost of food by 50 per cent., raising the outlay per head of the population irom H/- to Ii!/- a week, i:ii,UOO,UUO.

TO CLEAN MATTING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 27 January 1915

TO OLEAN MATTING. I Matting usually gets its full share of hard wear, and, apart from an occasion al shaking, how often does it receive any cleauingf In the great majority of cases this absence of treatment is due to ignorance as to the proper way to got to work. To clean, a handful of bran should be thrown into boiling water aud a tablespoouful of soap powder dissolv ed ia it. Thu muttiug is theu scrubbod with this mixture, thoroughly riutvd, and dried as much as possible by means of cloths. Bran is good to use for cleauiug white paint that has become soiled. A cloth isMqueezed out in hot water, aud dipped in a little bran. When putting away furs or woollen goods, it i? best to mxi newspapers, and not, as is usually the case, brown or plain white. The reason is that moths do not care for paper that has been printed upon. Newspapers cau be put to a variety of uses, and women marching for some material to stuff a cushion upon which thoy do not wish to spend any money might do worse t...

REMOVING STAINS. AVOID SPOILING COLORS. CLOTHES THAT ALWAYS LOOK FRESH. If you wish your clothes to look as fresh at the end of tho season as at the beginning make a study of cleaning fabrics. Of course you dislike faded muslins, so never trust to the salesman's assurance thai colors are fast. Again, do not use the same treatment for all colors. Most peoplu pin their faith to salt and water to set any color. This Is only for pinks, browns, and blacks, a cupful to a gallon of water. Home laundresses put tie: salt right in with the soap. Of course this is a mistake. Just clear, cold water should lie lined. For lavenders nothing equals sugar of lend for preserving the color— .1 tabli'sponuful to n gallon of water, as tms is sueh a poison, care should be taken to throw the water out as soon ns It is used.
