Because the life of an article of clothing may be prolonged by good care, it is necessary to know how to take care of one's clothing. Hence it is necessary to know when, where and how to use various cleansing agents on different fibers.

An old or out of style garment may, still be, if properly cleaned of service to the wearer. Therefore the purpose of this paper is to present the results of the use of various cleansing agents, after careful experimentation.

In experimenting the author tried to include that which is most interesting and important for others as well as herself. It is the aim to secure an understanding of cleansing agents which either help or harm according to the way they are used.
