TO WASH COLOURED EMBROIDERY. Put a handful of bran into warm water, and leave the article to be cleaned in it to soak, pressing it together occasionally,but not rubbing it; when clean, hang i' up until it is nearly dry, and then stretch it on a frame or iron it. Another method is as follows: Simply wash the embroi- dery with soap in tepid water into which a pinch of salt has been put; the embroidered part should only be very slightly rabbod, but the material all round can be thoroughly cleansed. Have another basin of clean tepid water ready in which the embroidered article must be first rinsed, then rolled up lightly in a dry cloth, and pressed immediately with a tolerably warm iron. The latter plan is the best in ordinary cases, but the whole process must be very quickly done, as any delay will cause the colours to run.
