Did You Know....

I am the proud owner of numerous Helpful Hint books from many different time periods.  They always make me smile, and some of them are actually very helpful!!

Here are some helpful hints and facts on how to be a happy homemaker!!

Did You Know....

....a peeled raw potato kept in the refrigerator will absorb all odors.

....when ironing a dress with several rows of ric rac close together if you turn the dress inside out and iron on a bath towel it will look very neat on the right side when finished.

....a small pad dipped in nail polish remover will quickly remove crayon marks on windows or woodwork.

....to make homemade modeling clay use 1 cup flour, 3/4 cup salt, a teaspoon of alum, and about 1/2 cup of water.  Mix this until it is workable.  Different colors may be made by the use of cake coloring, or crepe paper dropped into the water before it is added.

....a nice gift for a music teacher is a white apron embroidered with music symbols.  For mothers a pink crisp apron, beruffled on each pocket, and embroidered with the word Mother and the names of her children.
