The mailbox uncle

- Yg. 1929, No. 6 -

Housewife. Removing soda water from handkerchiefs does not always work. Try the following remedy: a gallon of water, half a pound of soft soap and three kilos of soda are cooked to a thin porridge. Then you give the whites three eggs, half a pound of small-flowered nettles (with Flowers!), Sprinkle two ounces of oatmeal and four cinnamon cakes over it and drive it through the wolf. The dough is painted on the contaminated area and, after the cloth has been lying in the sun for three days, scraped off. If that does not help, then the last but always effective remedy is the burning of the handkerchief.
