But they take far more care in washing and ironing than your pastels and colorful cottons. It's worth this extra care to avoid the lint, whitish streaks and shiny spots that may spoil thes* dresses. Don't put them Into the machine with your white and light-colored cottons. It's your light clothes, in close contact with the blacks, that cause the lint. If you haven't a tubful of other dark, color-fast cottons, yiu'll have to do your black cotton dress alone, by hand. Clinging soap curds will smudge your black cottons, so use a synthetic detergent or a water softener along with your soap. Whitish streaks are caused by starch that isn't evenly and thoroughly distributed thorugh the fabric. Blue your starch solution M it won't be dead white. Mix it "welL Squeeze it through your dress thor- Stitch and Chatter Club at 7:30 nughly after you've turned the dren " ™ inside out. When you come to Ironing, make sure you're pressing on the wrong side only. If you have to touch up afterwards, on the right, side, use a press cloth on these spots. To avoid picking up lint from ynur ironing board, cover the regular board cover with another one that has a smooth surface. -NOTICE- Office Will Bt Closed July 26 to August 3. DR. W. T.
