You can remove these usually with hot vinegar. Rub over the spots with this, dry, then polish with furniture polish or linseed oil. To remove water spots from varnished surfaces, use ammonia water, followed by furniture polish. Q. How can I prevent homemade syrup from candying after it has stood for a while? A. By adding a teaspoon of vinegar to it. Q. How can I clean embroidery on an article that cannot be laundered? A. Cover it with a thick paste of alcohol and powdered chalk, roll up, and lay away in a dark place for a few days. Then brush off the dry chalk. Q. How can I caramelize sugar easily? A. In a dry skillet in the oven. In this way, it heats front the bottom and top at the same time, caramelizing quickly and smoothly. Q. How can I brighten up dull-looking pewter? A. Drop a small lump of po-, tash into a quart of water and soak the pewter in this for at least twenty-four hours. Then take it out and rub all over with a cork dipped in olive or mineral oil, following this with a brisk rubbing with a dry chamois. Q. How can I remove perspiration stains from fabrics? A. With unwashables, sometimes only drycleaning is the answer. But first try sprinkling some water-moistened cornstarch on the area, brushing off when dry. With washable fabrics, ordinary laundering should do the trick, but if this fails, sponge the stains with vinegar.
