How to clean/restore old lace doilies.
I believe my great grandma made them. They’re in pretty good shape, but need cleaning. Because of age I’m wondering how to clean them without them falling apart.Thanks!
From a book I own called The Housewives Book which from the illustrations appears to date from the 1930’s they have this paragraph.….Old lace must be handled with the greatest care owing to its fragile nature. When very old, the threads are so weak that the gentlest kneading and squeezing in soapy water is liable to tear it. An alternative method of washing is to put warm, soapy water in a wide-necked screw topped jar and to wash the lace inside the jar by simply turning it around and shaking it, and to rinse it in the same way, using clear water. The lace should then be rolled up in a cloth and later pinned out on a piece of felt or old blanket, and when almost dry pressed with a warm iron remembering to put a piece of muslin between the iron and the lace.Still another method of washing small pieces of real lace is to sew a piece of flannel round the outside of the a straight-sided jar, and to attach the lace to the flannel. The washing is done by rolling the jar or bottle in plenty of warm soapy water.a further precaution against damage is to tack valuable lace on to a piece of butter muslin before beginning to wash it, allowing it to remain in position until the lace has been ironed.Best of luck(ps – Do you know, I learned to make lace years ago and actually made a doily and a lace collar…..before moving on to other things.)

Any Websites or E-Books that can tell me how to restore a 63 VW Beetle Air Cooled Engine.
Websites, E-Book downloads?
I’m sure they’re out there, but I find it a lot more convenient to have a real, genuine, printed book with pictures and everything that I can carry with me when I’m working. Maybe it’s due to my experience as an aircraft mechanic where it is required that you have the maintenance manual immediately available for reference while you are performing a task.In any case, why not go to a local book store and browse the shelves. You’ll find dozens of well written and illustrated books on the subject, and many of them for less than $15.

Anyone read this book about how to restore your eyesight naturally.
http://www.amazon.com/Relearning-See-Improve-Eyesight-Naturally/dp/1556433417/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1250541747&sr=1-1it actually got 5 stars so im wondering if anyone tried it?thanks
I read this book before. But I think “vision without glasses’ is much better as it gave me good results. I did some of the exercises from it and my vision has drastically improved. Now my left eye has -1 compared to my previous -3.5. So I’m sure that if you do these exercises daily and eat vitamin A rich foods, then you can achieve good eyesight.

How to restore rained on books.
Long story, but one of my books got wet, and it has dried by now mostly, but the pages look very bad. Can you tell me any way to fix them? It’s a paperback book. Thanks
This questions gets asked a lot and the answers are usually disappointing if you wanted to save a favorite book. I put one link below. Just google water damaged books or something like that to get other suggestions. Really, for a paperback, if it’s still readable, that’s about the best you can expect.
