There is no better way of removing spermaceti, than, (after scraping off with a knife as much as you can get from the surface of the spot,) to cover it with a piece of clean blotting paper, or any paper that is soft and thin, and press it with a warm iron. By repeating this, (taking each time a clean part of the paper,) any spermaceti spot may be removed from carpets, coats, ladies' dresses, or other similar articles.

When spermaceti has been dropped on a table, lay a blotting paper on the spot, and then hold over it, care-fully, at a small distance above, a hot coal in the tongs. Pressing it with a warm iron would mark the mahogany.
