Four ounces of ammonia, four ounces of white Castile soap cut fine, two
ounces of alcohol, two ounces of Price's glycerine and two ounces of
ether. Put the soap in one quart of water over the fire; when dissolved
add four quarts of water; when cold add the other ingredients, bottle
and cork tight. It will keep indefinitely. It should be made of soft
water or rain water. To wash woolens, flannels, etc., take a teacup of
the liquid to a pail of lukewarm water, and rinse in another pail of
water with half a cup of the cream. Iron while damp on the wrong side.
For removing grass stains, paint, etc, use half water and half cream.
