Hints From Heloise Give Baby Vitamins While He's In Tub By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I know you have said this before, but please say it again—so that mothers who have vitamin stains on their baby's clothing will not complain! I do not know ^ how mothers give their babies vitamins ... but if they would read and learn and absorb the fact that babies can b e giver their vitamin: while they are taking their bath, Helois* they would never have a vitamin stain on their little under shirts! If the baby spits up or dribbles while he bathes then the mother can wash it off with soap and water while he is in his tub. I am wondering how many mothers know that the skin is so much easier to wash than trying to get the stains out of a T-shirt? Mother of Four You are wonderful. Kiss your babies for me. . . wish I could! Heloise Dear Heloise: My mother's way to keep lettuce from turning brown was to keep the head wrapped in a piece of white cotton cloth which was good and damp — but not wet enough for water to drip from the cloth. The cloth was re-dampened after each part of the lettuce was used. Today our lettuce is usually put up in plastic bags at the market. I buy lettuce that has nice green leaves on the outside of the head. I always save one or two of these large outside leaves to place over the cut part of it when a slice has been removed for salads, or to rewrap the head with after some leaves have been removed. After using, I then replace the head in the plastic bag and close the end. R.E. Dear Heloise: I recently bought a new plastic window and shower curtain. I took down the old curtain which was still in good condition and used it as a cover for my youngest child's mattress. Mrs. H. W. Brosin Hey You or You all? Thanks from the bottom of my little, southern heart for all the Christmas cards, remembrances, thoughts, etc. Words can't convey my feelings. I can only say "God Bless You" for bringing happiness into our home with your love letters! Each was read with love, tears, and togetherness. We all sat down (husband, daughter and son) and read them. Oh ... how I would love to be in your kitchen, in a sloppy Joe sweater and some old slacks drinking a cup of coffee with you! What fun we could have! But as I am not, and you are not, just let's keep our hearts together and our problems will be understood. Eh? Yeah! Love, devotion and understanding, always and forever for so long as I live. And. . . let's hope it's long enough to get our homes clean and we can find the time to enjoy ourselves. Love you always . . . and happiness for 1963! Heloise Heloise welcomes all mail, especially household hints which she can pass on to readers as space permits.
