nsb 1950s housewife domestic bliss handy hints

Post by innocent bystander » Fri Jan 22, 2010 11:05 am

right, this can only do good, this thread (dooming it to failure).

this morning, as visitors to the day thread will know, i spilt olive oil on new trainers (the only suade bit) before i could protect spray them. i wa somewhat distraught, but vistied a few sites and found the solution of rubbing salt onto it. well, we don't have salt at work, but we have suger and BEHOLD - stain is gone.

so people, in these times of make do and mend - let's have your handy hints for domestic calm and bliss. and call me nancy.

Wet shoes from a day spent trawling the streets? Pack tightly balled up sheets of newspaper into them within a few hours they'll be wearable again!

Got your phone wet? put it in a pint glass full of dry rice and watch in wonder as the rice wicks the water out the phone.


Guess which city i live in.... :lol:

When cutting childrens hair use a fray bentos pie tin to get a straight edge on the fringe

Use Telegrams when spamming for awards instead of the internets, it’s less controversial

To clean the inside of your microwave cut a lemon and an orange in half and put them in a open container and heat on full power for two minutes and this will loosen all the scuz inside and be really easy to clean!

very good mike.. :!:

lay tin foil shiny side up in a casserole dish of some description, put in it any silverware that requires cleaning, add soda crystals and fill with boiling water. The soda and ally react to fizz & clean!



i have picked up far too many hints and tips over the years, i am turning into a weird hybrid of kim, delia & anthea. :?
