Polly's Pointers Porcelain Not Acid-Resistant By Polly Cramer POLLY'S PROBLEM DEAR POLLY — I have purchased a home in the country. The bathtub, toilet bowl and sink are spotted brown from the well water. If anyone has a suggestion for how I can get rid of these markings it will be greatly appreciated. — MRS. G.R.S. DEAR MRS. G.R.S. — If yours is an older house the porcelain fixtures may not have an acid- resistant finish. In that case rust or mineral stains may be removed with the following solution — a bar of naptha-based soap (chipped), one-half cup ppiii thinner or a cleaning solvent added to a gallon of hot water. This will not harm the finish. Most new fixtures are acid resistant and such stains can be soaked with vinegar. — POLLY DEAR POLLY — At our 25th weddine anniversary party we had the caterer wrap the wedding cake first in waxed paper and then in a napkin. The frosting did not soak into the paper napkin and the cake tasted better, too. — MARIE DEAR POLLY — I would like to pass on the way I always get a clean white wash. I put one and a half cups of chlorine bleach (if the fabrics will take that type) and a cup of washing powder in the first cycle. In the second cycle I only use clear water and the wash comes out white as snow and very clean. The reason for using only clear water in the second cycle is that this gets all the soap out of the wash so it does not have that telltale gray. — MARY DEAR POLLY — One of the readers wrote that she had trouble with stamps coming off of envelopes. I stamp the envelope before writing the letter and place it under a book while I write the letter. The stamp sticks perfectly. — RAY Polly will send you one of her signed thank-ypu newspaper coupon clippers if she uses your favorite Pointer, Peeve or Problem in her column.
