Staffe, Baroness: The Lady’s Dressing Room IMP, v1, 28 Sept 2007.
The Lady's Dressing Room by Baroness Staffe
Translated by Lady Colin Campbell
Another in our occasional series of debatably-useful instructional works.
This offers advice on health and hygiene, with additional tips on skincare and laundry.
Learn how to cure eruptions of the skin:
‘Ulcerated eruptions have been cured by bathing with strawberry-juice. An easier or more agreeable remedy can hardly be imagined. It is much less repugnant than, and quite as efficacious as, a live yellow slug, with which the sore used to be rubbed till the unhappy mollusc was used up.’
Discover Queen Victoria’s headache cure (which involves the services of a negress and a paintbrush).
Make a solution which is efficacious against all laundry stains (though I expect that it would dissolve the fabric).

I'm replacing the original bulky book image file with a compact version. The contents are identical. The original version had 19 views.
