To make a fine wash for the Teeth.
Mix an ounce of bole-armenic in a gill of hungary-water; put these into a quart of claret, with two ounces of honey, an ounce of myrrh, a dram of allom, and ten grains of salt of vitriol; let them stand in an earthen vessel, or in the jar three days, then set it up to settle. When you use it, put a spoonful into a cup of water, and wash your teeth with it every morning; it will keep them white and preserve them clean.
