How to Preserve your Stockings – 40’s Style

From the British Pathe archives this is an interesting, if long-winded, way of preserving your stockings (and would work just as well with tights if you care to try it).  According to the film clip if these instructions are followed, they will be even better than new when you next go to wear them.  In 1940’s war time when stockings were in short supply looking after your nylons was essential, but today I guess we just throw them away and buy a new pair, however we love this clip and the commentary is amusing too!
