319. To Wash White Woolen Blankets






To wash white woolen blankets,
dissolve four tablespoonfuls of good washing powder in a dipperful of
boiling water and pour into a tub of warm water. Open the blanket out wide
and put it in the tub and let it soak all over for a half an hour. Then
rub it all over between the hands, and if there are any stains left, rub
them with soap. Rinse in clear water of the same temperature as the wash
water. If you do this your blankets will be soft and will not shrink. Do
not rub blankets on a washboard, as it makes them hard, and blueing added
makes them a dull gray color.
