A very good waie to take out spottes of oyle out of cloathes.

First ye shall take of the oyle of Carter, and rub therewith on the spotty place, & then scrape it away incontinent againe, then wash it well with luke warme water, and three or four times with cold water, and then wring it foorth, and see if all the spots bee cleane out, if not, wash it againe, so long as you did before, and so the cloth shall be as faire as it was when it was new, or before any spots came on it. There is also another way for to take forth spots with this oyle of Tartar, but because I haue not the true knowledge thereof, I will not heare expresse it.
