Japanese Cream

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.
