You've heard the remark that things are not what they seem? Consider silk! To how many mixtures is the word "silk" applied? For instance, silkaline is all cotton, near silk is half cotton, artificial silk is cellulose put through a special chemical process. Because of the misleading names of these materials every woman should know some simple test by which she can tell whether or not her silk is pure or mixed, or not silk at all.
