To Restore Whiteness to Scorched Linen

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pint of vinegar
  • 2 ounces of fuller's-earth
  • 1 ounce of dried fowls' dung
  • 1/2 ounce of soap
  • the juice of 2 large onions

Instructions

Boil all these ingredients together to the consistency of paste; spread the composition thickly over the damaged part, and if the threads be not actually consumed, after it has been allowed to dry on, and the place has subsequently been washed once or twice, every trace of scorching will disappear.
