Mississippi county homemakers can eliminate time, work, and expense In doing Ihc family laundry by not overdoing certain processes, Miss Cora Lee Coleman, county home demonstration agent, said this week. Soaking, soaping, nnd scrubbing when overdone, she explained, may hinder rather than help In clcaning=iclothe5'. Soaking white cottons or linens for one to two hours in warm soapy water before washing will loosen the dirt, save time in rubbing on in running the wasliing machine, and save wear on clothes, Should Use Snap Beans W/>,/e They're Plentiful Mississippi County housewives «'lll be doing a patriotic wartime job by using more snap beans while they're abundant. Explaining that supplies now on ii! market arc In excess of canning needs in larger producing states, Ernest P. Franks, Area Supervisor, Office of Distribution, said increased consumption by local housewives \vns necessary to suvc part of the seasonal crop. According .to present^ estimates, mariy carloads bTbeaiis "will be available at fresh markets this season and housewives will bc making a definite contribution to the wai food program by using generous supplies daily and preserving some for future needs.

Except for overalls aud work shirts which ' require maximum soaking time, colored clothes should not bc soaked lougcr than 20 minutes, the home demonstration, agent warned. If clothes are w-ashed too loug, dirt from the water will go back into the fabric just as with excessive soaking, she added. In a washing machine, only three to five minutes should bc allowed for ray- ons and silks; five to seven minutes for slightly soiled cottons, and seven to 10 minutes for cottons soiled to a greater degree. If clothes are not clean in 10 minutes, they should be given a second washing in clean suds. Washing by hand requires probably a slightly longer time, but additional rubbing will not get clothes clean if the water needs changing, shc pointed out. Too much soap is not only wasteful bul may be a hindrance.
