198. Mud Stains, to Remove

Mud stains will disappear from cloth by the
following method of cleansing: After brushing the dry mud away sponge the

remaining stain with a weak solution of ammonia and water. This is

absolutely safe to apply to black cloth. Colored goods, however, should be

sponged with a solution of bicarbonate of soda as the latter does not

affect coloring matter.
