182. The Easiest Way to Blacken a Stove



The easiest way to blacken a
stove is to use a flat paint brush about one and a half inches wide, and a

tin or jar, large enough to receive the brush, to mix the blacking in.

Apply the blacking to the stove as you would paint, and use a newspaper to

polish with, which can be burned. In this way the hands do not come in

contact with the blacking during the whole operation, and unsightly cloths

and brushes, which soil the hands, are done away with.
