Odd Scraps for the Economical

When a carpet is faded, I have been told that it may be restored, in a great measure, (provided there be no grease in it,) by being dipped into strong salt and water. I never tried this; but I know that silk pocket handkerchiefs, and deep blue factory cotton will not fade, if dipped in salt and water while new.

    Well, that’s a cool helpful hint!
    Anyone tried it yet?
    I wonder if the salt dipping would help the color
    remaining even if it’s not new.

    I haven’t tried it, but it would be fun to see if it really worked 😀
