‘The Home of To-day’ published by the Daily Express (1930-1950) includes a section on home laundry work, and the following on Handkerchiefs:

“These should be ironed when quite wet as this gives them a slight stiffness. The handkerchief should be laid flat on the table and ironed all over. It should then be folded in two, with the edges even, ironed again all over, and folded in four, ironing as before. Small fancy handkerchiefs can be folded in the same way as square traycloths.” p.199
