Mice to Prevent the Incursions of Strew wild mint where you wish to keep the mice out, [and] they will never trouble you.

To Wash Ribbons

Almost any ribbon can be washed [and] [rinsed?], and made to look nearly as [of not] quite [as] well as new. Except a few delicate colors, as pink, or sky blue [etc?]

To wash ribbons, make a clea[r or n] lather of clean white soap, the water as warm as you can bear your hands in it; rub the ribbon through this, soap may be applied where there are grease spots on the wrong side; rinse in cold water. As soon as wash -ed, without hanging out to dry, have ready a hot iron, [and] press them out while wet; press on the wrong side; They will will wrinkle [and] never look well, if not pressed while wet. If you wish to stiffen them dip them before ironing, in a solution of gum Arabic; when ironed smooth, take the scissors [and] trim off the ends. I have renewed narrow satin ribbons in this way when you would not know they had ever been worn; also wide colored ribbons, black [etc?]

To Bleach Yarn

An ounce of [lac?] sulphur (brimstone) to the [cut] is the allowance, [and] readily home made yarn beautiful for knitting hoods, comforts, scarfs, [? ?]. The Bark of the Horse chesnut, boiled until it forms a lather, is the best wash for flannels.
