276. Hemstitching Underclothing

Hemstitching forms a dainty finish for
the household linen and underclothing, but the busy woman often will not

undertake it because of the difficulty of drawing the threads. If a piece

of white soap be rubbed on the underside of the cloth, where the

hemstitching is to be done, the threads may be drawn with ease, in half

the time that is usually required.
