The Little Book of Household Hints
Today's household is busier and more diverse than ever before. The days of Grandma standing at the hearth, lovingly stirring the soup cauldron while dispensing wisdom, are long gone. Often, we don't have access to mum's advice on stain-removal, or Auntie's food storage tips. Grandpa's never-fail cure for an ant invasion is lost in the mists of time. But things still go wrong around the house and we need to know what to do. How do you get candle wax out of a tablecloth? What's a safe way to get rid of cockroaches? What can be done about a musty smell in a holiday house? How can you cook cabbage without that smell? This guide contains easy hints and tips to address hundreds of household problems. Common sense, family traditions and cheap, simple solutions form the basis of this book. Where possible, we prefer natural green responses to problems. Most pantries contain the ingredients to address a multitude of emergencies and with a minimum of forethought, every household can have on hand all that is needed. The Little Book of Household Hints will tell you how. Ideal for students, house-sharers, newly-weds and all those who find themselves having to solve day-to-day problems around the kitchen and laundry - indeed, anywhere around the house! Hundreds of household tips on cleaning, food storage, holiday preparation, plants and flowers, stain removal, pest deterrents, handyman ideas and more!
