A few decades ago I saw an interview with the Royal Launderer, who said that the Queen's tablecloths were never washed. Instead, they were spot cleaned for stains. He said, with a straight face that they used spit.

Imagine being by appointment to her Majesty, the Royal Spitter. Actually, it works on clothes, and my granddaughter's face.

I really don't think that is true. It might have been true several hundred years ago but is unsanitary now.

That's hysterically funny and the Brits do have a great sense of humor and know that the majority of folk are gullible. I can't imagine that it happened any later than Queen Victoria's reign if it happened at all though. Am giving you a thumbs up for giving me a laugh. :-)

I'm with Deeli! You get my thumbs-up for the smile. Spit always worked when we were kids, didn't it? :D

I guess the enzymes in saliva might do it. I love your humor.
