In many rooms, especially in apartments, where windows or door should have been furnished with ground glass, a good imitation of ground glass may be made as follows:

Take a soft piece of putty and tie it closely in a piece of cheese-cloth, and pat the plain glass with it until every part is covered with a thin white coating. When this covering has dried so that it will not rub off, brush the putty over with one coat of white varnish. The window may then be cleaned like a pane of plain glass.
