If you’re like me, you’ve prob­
ably been looking over last year's
warm-weather wearables and won­
dering what you can salvage for
another season's wear. As for me,
I discovered that my daughter, Bab,
has simply out-

I'd do! But, luck­
ily, Bab can now

togs, and I' in

fresh-looking and
color-new for her. My slacks, for
instance, I cut otf to make pedal
pushers for Bab. Using the kind of
fast-acting color remover you find
at all-fabric dye counters, I took
out enough of the old navy color to
enable me to re­
dye. Then into the
dye-bath went tha

and out they came
a little later, dyed
a beautiful bright
green. And an old
faded beach robe
is now bright red
—Bab loves them
both! Naturally,
I'm re-dyeing all of my own cas­
uals that lost their color because of
the sun and numerous washings.
It's amazing how much money
we can save by tintexing old gar­
ments and home furnishings. One
of my favorite budget-savers is re­
dyeing my unmatched nylon hosiery
—I just use color remover first and
then dye them with the special
stocking dyes that come in 10
shades. Incidentally, you’ll be in­
terested in hearing about a won­
derful whitening product that works
miraculously on nylon, as well as
all other fabrics. Called Whitex,
I've used it on white curtains,
blouses, and slips which have be­
come yellowed from repeated wash­
ings—they’re just like new again!
You can get this wonder bluing at
the dye counters.
