>You can still buy those sprinkle ends for pop bottles from Regal. Actually
all that was in the bottle was water used to dampen the clothes before
ironiong before the days of steam irons. Putting them in a plastic bag
after sprinkling them with water merely allowed the water to spread around
a bit before ironing.My Grandmother used this system even after the steam
iron came on the scene. Sometimes she would simply dip her hand in a bowl
of water and flick it over the clothes as she put them in the plastic bag.
