Why Not Bleach It ?
If you have r faded cotton frock, why not bleach it? A friend whom I met the other day was wearing a pretty white frock, originally a blue one, which had been successfully bleached by the following method : Have ready a large pan of water, and put in one tablespoonful of cream of tartar to each, quart of water. Put the dress in, having removed the collar-bones, and any silk trimming, and let it boil briskly for three hours, stirring at intervals. 'Then take the frock out, rinse it in cold water, and hang it in the open air to dry. Iror and starch it ip the usual way. Pink or red frocks may require a second boiling, as they jy " fast " olours.
