In practicing the invention, the new composition of matter is applied over the surface of the cloth or fabric and is then rubbed in order to secure uni25 form distribution ‘ thereof and the penetration thereof into the ?bres of the cloth'or fabric, thus causing each unit of area'of the cloth or fabric rubbed for a short period of time in order to bring about a more perfect distribution of the so composition and cause the composition to pene trate the fabric to some extent. This results in the restoration of the original nap of the cloth with a removal of the shine and an apparent'par tial dissolution and‘redistribution of the dye, so 25 that the cloth takes ‘on a more lively appearance and resembles very closely a fabric of the same to be restored substantially to its original state character and quality which has not been used. after a very short period of rubbing and a very so limited application of the compound. In practicing the method, the rubbing of the cloth or fabric is preferably effected by an object made up of an improved composition of matter here- It has been found that the ‘results obtained with the use of the foregoing composition of mat- 80 ter are substantially improved if the rubbing of the cloth is effected by means of a small briquette madeiyup of rubber having embedded therein a quantity of powdered pumice stone and powdered emery.’ The pumice stone and'emery are dis»v $5 tributed through the rubber while ‘it is in a more or less plastic state arid then the rubber is vul inafter disclosed which also forms a part of the 35 present invention and which is adapted to expedite the rejuvenating operation and to bring about more satisfactory results.
