Home Demonstration Agent Old furniture that looks like new—that's what lots of honu makers would like. Refinishing old furniture is lots less expensive than buying new furniture and you can achievi good results—but it takes work and must be done the right way . To tell you the right way to1 refinish furniture, Miss Bonnie Dale Samson, the Extension I home management specialist, has prepared three publications, on rcfinishing furniture, one on finishes for furniture and one on how to bleach furniture. A copy of each is available at your home agent's office just for the asking. Ask for Extension Publication 257, Refinishing furniture; Pub lication 253, Finishes for Furni ture; and Publication 264, How to Bleach Furniture aonnicagt ui conon Marquisette Curtains Along with your newly finish ed furniture, or to give your bed room or another room a fresh, crips, cool look, you may plan to add cotton marquisette curtains. And from past experience, you’ve probably found that shrinkage must be considered, whether you buy the material or the ready made curtains. A recent study showed that cotton marquisette curtains shrink with each washing through the sixth laundering. However, the greatest shrinkage occurred with the first launder ing and amounted to as much as a fifth to a half of the total shrinkage in length. If you are making your own curtains, you can save alterations and fabrics, if you launder the materials before making it up_ and then allow a little extra length for later shrinkage. Shrinkage in length causes the most trouble, but the study show ed that cotton marquisette usual August 7 Mattie Mae Gwin, Lexington Baby Girl Gwin, Lexington Baby Boy Gwin, Lexington David Ellis, Memphis, Tennes see, dtsehasged August 9 Martha Lee Andenon, Lening Baby Girt Andersen, Lexington ton, discharged Augmat 9 August 9 Henry Behn, Benton August 9 Willie Cobbins, Lexington Manilla Garvis, Pickens. I ly shrinks even more in width than in length. This shrinkage in width may cause the curtains to hang unevenly Some textile specialists suggest not only laundering marquisette before you make it Up. but also basting a wide bottom hem for easy alteration after later laund erings. Marquisette with special finish es shrank less than that with or dinary finishes the study show ed. The least shrinkage occurred in fabric that had a permanent finish. Special Care For Straw Cloth “Straw” cloth, made of 100 per cent woven cotton,’ needs some special care if you arc to get the gieatest amount of wear from it This material is known by the trade name of Mndagaska straw, and like Everglaze, the name identifies a family of fabrics, not one fabric or finish. The finish on “straw” cloth gives it a crisp look and the feel of natural straw. It comes in natural straw- It comes in na* tural or colors. It is washable, but should not be starched or bleached. The manufacturer’s tag says “avoid twisting and sharp creasing." A fabric that has a reslntreat ment in its finish to give stiff, ness should not be starched, since the starch will not pene trate the fabric well, but will lie on the surface. When too stiff, a fabric breaks or cracks, or wears out more quickly. Some of the resins used hold chlorine and cause the fabric to become brown in color when chlorene bleaches are used. Straw cloth may be dry dean-' ed when the design of the gar ment requires it if it is not tumb led dry or if there is not too much flexing of the fabric by mechanical action- Keep mechani cal action in many cleaning pro cess to a minimum.
