Tip To Remove Mildew From Linen
This is from the GODEY'S Lady's Book, July - Dec. 1865, and is still a helpful tip today if you find yourself with mildew issues.
Wet the linen with soft water; rub it well with white soap; then scrape some fine chalk to powder, and rub it well into the linen; lay it out on the grass in sunshine, watching to keep it damp with soft water. Repeat the process the next day, and in a few hours the mildew will entirely disappear.

Never permit yourself to become the weak link in the chain of your generations.
Welcome! Please pour yourself a cup of tea and settle in and relax with me awhile. As you'll notice, I am captivated by ancient times, a soul misplaced in this modern day. I have a love for my ancestry and I believe people who grow up without a sense of how yesterday has affected today, are unlikely to have a strong sense of how today affects tomorrow.
