20. To Wash Laces

To wash delicate or tender laces put the lace in a
fruit jar with shavings of some good soap, cover with warm water, let soak

for awhile then shake, using if necessary several waters, then rinse in

same manner, spread between pieces of muslin and roll up on a bottle or

jar, and leave to dry. They will not be torn in this way and will look

like new.
