Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 17, 1968 C13 Hints From Heloise Old Footlockers, Desks Cleverly Utilized turn the can upside down on a saucer or any plastic lid from another product. DEAR HELOISE: Try using your famous nylon net to wash the bugs from the grill on your car, the fenders, the boat you drag behind It, or that little travel trailer! It doesn't even hurt the finish and does a fabulous job of getting off the bug splatters. hide an extra key somewhere near the engine or on the underside of the car body. Or . . . using black electrical tape, attach that key to one of the many taped wires under the hood or some accessible place. Most of the wires are black and have tape on them already sothe key wouldn't be too noticeable. Be sure to show the wife and other drivers where it is so you will save the price of a service charge or maybe a broken window. DEAR HELOISE: I have three toddlers in shoes now. When one pair is outgrown, I polish them put in new laces if needed, and mark on the bottom with a felt-tip marking pen the size and width. Then I tie the laces together and store them in a shoe box for the next little one. When a younger one needs new shoes, I just go the find his correct size. Right now my youngest is outgrowing his at the rate of a size every six to eight weeks, so this system sure comes in handy and saves on the budget. Jeannie Taylor DEAR HELOISE: My little girl feeds herself, but soup was a big problem. After trying everything, I found that by putting the solid part in a bowl and the liquid in her training cup, she eats more and makes less mess. GinnyWendel DEAR FOLKS: This is for those who have pets and use canned dog and cat food that is congealed. I see no need to waste foil and time by covering up a partially-used can. Or like most of us do, taking out whatever portion we need and setting the can back in the refrigerator where it dries out. Remove what you need, then DEAR HELOISE: After moving into a new home, I found we needed more storage space. There seems to be no home you can buy, build or rent that ever has enough. So, here's what I did: I took my husband's old wooden foot lockers which we had carried around for years and turned them on end. This way the're standing up. Instead of lifting up the top of a locker, which takes energy, all we have to do is open the "door". Besides, it takes up less space and looks like a cabinet. Sure will keep It from drying out. It won't spill because it's congrealcd. Dog's "Mother" 40H KW.S& til (J No more soggy sandwiches for our family now. Barbara Hallidav DEAR HELOISE: I'm sure that most husbands know this little trick. Hut for those who don't, It's worth a year's subscription to this paper If they ever get caught locked out of their cars without an extra key. Buy one of those little inexpensive magnetic boxes and ft'.' xyjwt :..vv K. 5: Your home will be the focal point for entertainment during the holiday season.

(A 1 . 7 r j' 1 rutlCj , Now guess what? We put two shelves in the foot locker and painted them to match our decor. A brown one for holding books in our living room, white one for linens in the bathroom and a blue one in the bedroom for various items that we use only occasionally such as a vaporizer, heating pad, etc. , I got real fancy and hand-painted an appropriate design on the front of it. Mattie English Dear Mat tie: You're absolutely terrific! Think of the thousands of men who have been in the service and have a foot locker ( both wood and metal ones) stored in the garage, basement or attic. It can also he covered with adhesive-hacked plastic paper, hut your painting it was absolutely "fantab"... Heloise DEAR HELOISE: An old office desk makes a fabulous sewing center! Just let your imagination run wild . Machine on top, dividers in drawer above the knee hole for lots of little things, deep file drawer for patterns, little pull-out sliding board for more work space ... all kinds of goodies. The expensive sewing cabinets are almost without drawers. And don't forget that of fice swivel chair sure is handy and comfortable. I got my set when a business firm had a sale. Now I wonder how 1 ever managed without it! Eunice Farmer DEAR HELOISE: Collar hand too tight and wife too busy to fix it for you? Insert a small rubber band In the button hole, slip one end through the other, then pull the loose end over the button. Your necktie will cover up the band and you'll have that added breathing space. Sure beats choking that Adam's apple! Jack Rogers DEAR HELOISE: When my mother wants to rid her kitchen of cooking odors, she sends me out to the garden to get a sprig of mint. Then she puts It In her garbage disposal and turns It on the switch. What a pleasant fragrance it sends through the house! Nancy (.laden got a sweet daughter named Nancy, too. That's a real tricky idea. Thank you, lion. Heloise DEAR HELOISE: Being lazy at heart, I have found a way to do those large Sunday crossword puzzles while sitting in my favorite easy chair. I simply Insert the part of the page without the puzzle into the open end of a stereo record jacket, fold the puzzle over onto the Jacket itself and I've got a dandv writing surface. It's the perfect size too. Rudy Drouin DEAR HELOISE: I have an idea for mothers who pack picnic lunches. Instead of making up lots of small sandwiches, I find it easier and quicker to make one or two large sandwiches out of long loaves of French bread cut lengthwise In two or three or even four slices. I fill these with my "imagination" sometimes even the night before. For ease in wrapping, I cut them in half and wrap In foil. Then, when I get to the picnic, I cut them into pieces (crosswise) large for . adults and small for the kiddles. There is less waste, as whatever is left over can be rewrapped and stored for a snack later. Jltlf .-" - 3T ..VJ m jflli m rv ' t , 1 One of America's truly fine stores TTFTp OKJS 559 N.
