                     DIRECTIONS FOR STARCHING MATS

New mats should be washed in mild soap flakes, rinsed and dried.

STARCH: Dissolve ¼ cup of starch in ½ cup of cold water. Cook slowly
over a low flame. As it thickens, stir in gradually about 1¼ cups cold
water. Cook, stirring constantly until the starch clears, 10 to 12
minutes. This makes a thick pasty mixture. As soon as starch is cool
enough to handle, dip mat and squeeze starch through it thoroughly.
Wring out extra starch. The mat should be wet with the starch, but there
should be none in the spaces. Pin mat in position according to size and
leave until thoroughly dry.

                           REMEMBER DYE LOTS

To insure the best results make certain that the “STAR” Brand Crochet
Cotton you buy to crochet your tablecloth is of one dye lot. The best
way to be sure of this is to purchase sufficient material at one time to
complete your piece. Or you can ask your dealer to reserve enough “STAR”
Brand Crochet Cotton for you.

                      WASHING AND BLOCKING CROCHET

Using hot water and a mild soap, make thick suds, add cold water until
suds are lukewarm.

Let the article stand in the suds a very few minutes, then squeeze in
and out until thoroughly clean. Rinse in clear water several times or
until sure the soap is removed. Roll in a bath towel. This will absorb
some of the moisture.

The work is now ready for blocking. Lay the work on a padded ironing
board or a flat surface and pin in position with rust proof pins,
stretching it gently to correct size and shape. Press through a damp
cloth and leave in position until dry.
