TWO METHODS OF REMOVING
IODINE STAINS FROM GAR
Iodine dropped on unstarched ma.'
terial makes a brown or yellow stain.
The presence of starch causes the
stain to become deep blue or black,
while iroring the -cloth sometimes
turns the stain a dark brown. The
method of removing the'se stains de
pends upon whether starch is present.
Chemists in the United State8 De
partment of Agriculture recommend
th.- fr-llow ing treatment for un
1. Water. Wash the stain in an
abundance of water or soak it for a
number of hours in cold water. The
stain can be removed also by wet
ting with water and 'drying in a
- warm place, such as over a radia
tor, repeating if necessary.
'2. Ammonia. Sponge the stain
with diluted ammonia.
4 Alcohol. Sponge the stain.
ANcohol ican frequently be used on
miaterial, that water would injure.
'4. Starch, as prepared fo laun
dry purposes; for washable material.
Immerse the stained place in the
starch and boil; it rst turns blue and
5. Flour, used in the same man
ner as starch.
Iodin stains can be removed from
starched materials in the following
1. Sodium thiosulphate ("hypo").
Immerse the stains in a weak solu
tion and then rinse thoroughly.
ammonia diluted with 'water until
3. Water. Boil the stained mate
rial for 5 or 10 minutes.
AFTER USING JAVELLE WATER
RINSE CLOTH THOROUGHLY.
Javelle water, which can be made
at home, is 4 good bleaching agent
to use in removing stains from white
linen and cotton when more simple
methods fail. Obstinate stains made
by clear coffee and tea, fruits, or
ink, for instance, will yield to an:
application of this useful liquid.
Javelle water should be applied
only to uncolored catton or linen ma- I
terials, because it bleaches colors and
rats silk or wool. In treating stains
with Javelle water, stretch the stain
ed portion over a bowl filled with
water and apply the Javelle water
to the stain with a medicine dropper.
Do no allow the Javelle water to re
main in contact with the stlain more;
than one minute. Apply oxalic acid <
solution to neutralize the Javelle wa-.4
ter and rinse by dipping the stain in
the bowl of water.
If allowed to remain too long in
contact with the fibers, Javelle water 1
rots even linen and cotton materials
and it should, therefore, always be
neutralized with oxalic acid and the
fabric rinsed thoroughly to remove
all traces of the che'nical. For very
persistent stains the Javelle water
may have to be applied several times,
but should be neutralized with ox
alic acid solution after och appli
Prepare Javelle water as follows:
Dissolve 1 pound of washing soda in
1 quart of cold water. To this so
lution add 1-4 pound of ordinary
bleaching powder (calcium hypochlo
rite). Filter this liquid through a
piece of muslin to remove the sedi
ment. Keep the clear liquid in
tightly stoppered bottles in a dark
INTERESTING SCHOOL CHIL

children that they can build a stri

that good health brings. She justly
defies the method of giving th neg
ative nessage of ill results from the
eating of such and such a foodl, of
the danger of a bad cold, etc. "We

children in practicing the rules o

method of securing children's inter

be monthly weighing in the class
