To make Cloth which hath lost his colour, to returne unto his first estate againe.

Take of Unquenched lyme two ounces, of Oake ashes two ounces, of cleare water two pound. Then meddle them well all together, and so let them rest a quarter of an houre, and then clarifie that water, & therewith wash your cloth, & it will returne to his first colour and wax faire againe as before.
