Wodlen fabrics differ wholly from any other fabric.
In wool, the surface of each fiber is made up of scales,

( The sensitiveness of Wool fiber to alkali and to rub
bing are the causes of shrinkage. . . , .
In the choice of your soap product, and in the way
you handle, woolens, lies the; secret of safety, of com
plete success in laundering Woolens.' c
Lux actually won't shrink woolens. It contains no
free alkali; its thick.Tiot lather dissolves dirt without
rubbing ; its wonderfully, pure, mild flakes leave
wooiens soft and fleecy, -just as they were when new.
So many other products have claimed . that they
won't shrink woolens, and you may have had somany
woolen garments shrink until they were no longer

Why silks turn yellow
Authorities on silk say that the action of alkali on
silk makes it acquire a yellow color which cannot be
washed out. Also that when an alkali is combined with
hot water, it affects the silk fibers, breaking them
down very, easily. Lux contains no free alkali .and
gives a remarkable lather when used in moderately
warm water. You can wash aUk with Lux over and
over again, and it will stay, as white as when you,
bought it. i '
Remember these precautions:
Never rub silks. 1 '
The Lux suds when used must ba lukewarm.' ;
Rinse perfectly in lukewarm'waters. ' , . y
Never dry in the sun. w. ,. . '
