TO CLHAN CLOTHS A Washing Process Which Removes Shine and Sot According to tle American Analyst the proper way of cestoring old clothes le aa follows: Tak for instance, a shiny old coat, vos or pair of trousers of broadeloth, cassimere or- diagunal. The scourer makes a strong, warm soapsuds, and plunges the garment into it, Bowes It up and down, rubs the dirty places, and if necessary, puts it through a second time; then Pinses It through several waters and hangs it up to.dry-on the line. When ueariy dry he takes it in, rolls it ap for an hour or two, and then presses it. An old cotton cloth is lald on the outside of the coat - and the. iron are ot fore--the-stedm ceases to Fise the gouils, else they would be shiny. Wrinkles that are obstinate are re- moved by laying a wet cloth over them aud passing the iron over that. if cuy shiny places are seen they are trented as the wrinkles are the iron Js lifted while the full cloud. of steam risesand brings the nap with it. Cloths should always have a eu made specially for them, asin. that which bas been used for white cot- Yon or woollen cloths lint will be left lu the water and will eling to the cloth. Ta this manner we have known the game coat and trouers to be renew- ed time-and time again, and have all the look and feel of new garmente.
