1001 Household Hints
One of the many, many, treasures my husband had from his box of his grandparents belongings and handed directly over to me, was this. I also got my hands on some amazing vintage and even antique cookbooks but those will come later.
This is a particularly special treasure to me. I started my Tip o’ the Week entries so I would have a place to put all these types of things I had learned over the years. I am proud that I never pass on a tip unless I have personally tried and tested it and found it to be true.
I love books like these as they are a fun reminder to how much times haves changed, how far science has come, and how many tricks have really lasted through generations. This is from 1948.
I had so much fun reading through this and saying, “Hey! I knew that! I can’t believe that’s such an old trick.” or “Wow! I can’t wait to try that.” Funny thing is, today, we are so focused on being “green” that this lovely little booklet is perfectly back in style.
I am going to start scanning this lovely treasure and will try to post a page a week, although, you of course, may NOT, quote me on that.
(Don’t worry. I’ll repost the first page on the right again larger so you can actually read it.)
