and ice work as a mild abrasive.
To clean old light colored lace, try a solution of sodium perborate powder, a mild bleach- ing agent available at drugstores ( they may have to order it ). Soak the lace until clean in a mixture of 1 Tablespoon sodium perborate and gallon of lukewarm distilled water. If heavy soiled , change the water and continue soaking until clean. Be sure to rinse well.
