To Freshen Crepe For Mourning Millinery
Brush the crepe with a fine brush to remove the dust. Clean in gasoline
if necessary. Crepe may be made to look like new if pinned down smoothly
and evenly on a padded surface, a damp cloth placed over it, then a hot
iron passed over it without touching it, but near enough so that a
slight amount of steam will dampen the crepe. Remove the cloth and allow
the crepe to dry in place. Crepe becomes shabby-looking quickly if not
given the best of care.
