NOTES. i HINTS TO 'HOUSKWIVKS. For cleaning kid glover, there is nothing to fee compared to benzine collas, which maybe used xvith equal effect for the removal of gre^s". paint, oil, &c., from clothing of any mat- rial; a great advantage in the U3 of this fluid is that it leaves no odour behind. A. few drops of sulphuric acid in water will take the status of fruit, dyes, stove blacking, &c., from the bands without injuring them. Care must ba taken, however, not to drop it upon the clothes. It will remove the colour from woollen, and eat holes in cotton fabrics. A very easy way to clean a gold chain, pin, rini, or other piece of gold jew liesy is with a litvie ammonia in water. Dip the chain in tb. water and move back and forth a few time1;, then wif< it dry on a sof* linen cloth, robbing gently bat wt.il, until no more bUck comes off. In cage of rings, be careful not to expose any stones that can be injured by ifcem, such as pearls, t the action of water j or ammonit fumea, I Oilcloth should never be scrubbed with a Jtrjfb, nor wtshwi with soap or hot water, as tbis will la,, off the pattern and make it; ertch. Only use a soft cloth and cold or lcke- i warn *al r.
