    Hi Peacock: O.k., going out on a limb now. If you want to display them, you can get a frame from the dollar store and some velvet, or something like that, from the craft store, like JoAnne and put that in the frame. Put your doily on that and put the glass on top and put it in the frame and hang it.

    Or, if you're trying to clean a doily, then fill the jar ¾ full of warm water. Add a small amount of detergent made for delicate fabrics, such as Woolite. Put the lid on the jar and shake it to mix the detergent with the water. Remove the lid, insert one doily and replace the lid. Wash the doily by rolling the jar around. Remove the doily, squeeze the water back into the jar if you are cleaning more than 1 doily, rinse well and lay it out on a towel to dry. You can fold the towel several times, or use more than 1 towel to make a thick base so that you can stick rust proof straight pins through the doily and towel and stretch the doily on the towel and pin it, to keep it from shrinking, wrinkling and curling up.

    If it's yellowed, a little white vinegar goes a long way toward removing stubborn stains on old linens. Submerge your doily in a solution of 1/ 2 gallon of water to 1/2 cup of vinegar and allow it to soak for several hours, sloshing it around occasionally.

    Other than this, I can't imagine what your question would be:) Good luck

    Your question got cut off. Did you need help with a project?

    I use one to move heavy objects. You can lift the edge of a box or piece of furniture, slip the dollie under it and wheel it to another location. The ones with inflatable tires are much better than the rubber tire dollies.
