Light Straw Hats

Light straw hats may be cleaned by the use of soap and water or

gasoline. If the hat is in need of bleaching, sulphur and water may be

used, or a commercial bleaching fluid may be bought all ready to use

according to printed directions. Two or three coatings of coloring will

change the color. Pleasing results are sometimes obtained by using two

different colors, one over the other. This, of course, requires

experience and should be tried out before using on a hat.
