29. Changing Pillow Slips



To change pillow slips without scattering the
feathers all over the house, sew up the clean tick, all except a space of

about twelve inches. Take the full pillow unopened and baste one side of

the empty one to the full one. Then with a knife slit open the seam of the

pillow, the twelve-inch space. Quickly baste the other sides together so

they will not come apart easily. Then slowly push the feathers into the

clean and empty tick, and when finished undo the basting and sew tightly.

Soak the soiled ticks in cold water immediately to remove remaining

feathers.
