Spinning Stories

The Housewife’s handbook by cqualmann

This book (1946) includes instructions for washing Handkerchiefs p.104:

“These should be put to steep for at least 2 hours in salt water before washing, as this facilitates the removal of the mucous. They should then be washed and rinsed thoroughly, and then boiled for 20 minutes. If there has been an infection in the house the handkerchiefs may be disinfected by soaking in a weak solution of any of the many disinfectants on the market”.
