Prussian Blue


One bottle Prussian Blue.

Blueing and starching our laundry is a bit of a forgotten art. Today we dump in some modern chemical bleach and call it good, but our foremothers had a much different approach. Along with this bottle of Prussian blue (about 8 uses per bottle) are directions for starching and blueing your linens in a period correct manner. A trade card for Robert Jenkin, oil-man, at the Oil Jar, in Fleet Street near the Market, London advertises that it he "Sells all sorts of fine oils likewise . . . powland &c. comn. starch . . . common powder blue". No need to fear, there is no oil in our blueing. This oil man sold more than oil, he sold all sorts of household items.

Made in the USA.
