220. Dyeing at Home

In dyeing at home amateurs often make the mistake of
putting the dyed article through the wringer, possibly to avoid staining

the hands for one reason, or perhaps hoping to dry the garment more

quickly. This however, should never be done, for the creases so formed are

most obstinate and in fact, often only disappear with wear, despite all

pressing. Dyed articles should be squeezed and hung out of doors to dry.
