HOW HATS MAY BE RENEWED
Ironing and Bleaching Simple Matter
Which May Be Easily Accom
plished at Home.
A hat which becomes Ump with
dampness may be restored by press
ing lt with a warm iron over a damp
cloth. A white straw or leghorn hat,
writes a correspondent, may be
bleached by washing with soap and
lukewarm water after which lt should
be well brushed with oxalic acid solu
tion or a paste of lemon Juice und sul
phur. If the oxalic acid forms bub
bles when poured on a clean white pine
bonni lt ls too strong for use and
should be diluted. If tho straw ls brit
tle and soap und water cannot be used
on lt, lt should bc well brushed before
using the oxalic acid and rinsed with
clear water afterwards. The hat may
be dried hy covering lt with a cloth
and pressing with a warm Iron or plac
ing it in the sun.
liluck straw hats may be cleaned
with a piece of velvet which bas boen
dipped In gasoline. if ll ls still not
hlnck enough after this process ls Mu
lshed lt may he dyed with commercial
dyes. Colored straw hats may be
cleaned und colored In the same way.
Most commercial dyes come In dark
Rhades and may hu diluted by the use
of a neutral liquid. A straw bat may
be reshaped hy dampening the brim
and bending lt to the shape desired.
Farted Howers which are soiled
should be cleaned first by shaking
thom in gasoline, after which water
colors and oil paints mixed with gaso
line may be used to tint them. If tho
whole tlowor ls to be colored it may
ho dipped In the bowl of coloring,
nftcr which the center may he painted
a darker shade with a camel's hair
brush. Tho edges of the petals may
lie tinted by dipping them 111 a bowl of
less dilute coloring matter. The Mow
ers may bc dried hy placing a weight
on the stems ntxl allowing them to
hang from tho edge of a table or shelf.
The appearance of the Mowers ls im
proved by trimming off all frayed
Matines, chiffon and laces are best
cleaned In gasoline. They amy be col
