When Washing Lamp Chimneys

If you live in the country and use kerosene lamps, do not dread washing the chimneys.

Make a good hot suds, then wash them in this, with a clean cloth kept for that purpose.

Pour over them very hot or boiling water and dry with an old soft cloth.

Twist a piece of brown paper or newspaper, into cornucopia shape and place over the chimneys to protect from dust and flies.
