Cold water, 1 gallon,

Chlorid of lime, 1 pound (1 can),

Sal-soda (common washing-soda), 4 pounds.

Place all on the fire and allow it to boil for 10 minutes. Take off and cool, and when cool put into bottles, fruit-jars, or stone jugs. Keep tightly corked.

A cup of this liquid in a tub of water will loosen the dirt in most soiled clothes, bleaching perfectly. It is also good for cleaning greasy cooking-utensils, drain-pipes, etc., and for removing all bad odors.
