Honey, silk and gin

"To clean coloured silks, satins, woollen dresses, &c - Four ounces of soft soap, four ounces of honey, the white of an egg, a wineglassfull of gin; mix well together, and scour the article with a rather hard brush thoroughly; afterwards rinse it in cold water, leave to drain, and iron whilst quite damp."

Enquire Within Upon Everything, Herbert Jenkins Limited, London 1926, p.429
