First Of May Receipt - To Clean Paint

Smear a piece of flannel with common whiting, mixed to the consistency of common paste, in warm water.  Rub the surface to be cleaned quite briskly, and wash off with pure cold water.  Grease spots in this way will be almost instantly removed, as well as other filth, and the paint will retain its brilliancy and beauty unimpaired.
