Hints From Heloise Put Nylon Net Cover Sponge By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I made my own scouring sponge! It is extremely simple to make. I wrapped several thicknesses of nylon net — cut about two inches wider than the length of the sponge itself — around a sponge and then turned under the edges. Sew the folded edges down securely. This is good for dishwashing as well as scouring! Marian You could just u s e a safety pin on e a c h edge to hold the net instead of sewing. This way the n e 1 could be removed for easy washing of the sponge. Heloise Dear Heloise: When making any kind of salad that calls for pickles, hard boiled eggs, celery, onions, green peppers and so forth, I use the coarse side of my grater. This Helois* is the side with the big holes. I find it much faster and easier and it makes a very neat salad. Mrs. George Lando Dear Heloise: When we started to remove the white enamel from our kitchen cabinet doors, we found that they were masonite. We could not afford to buy all new cabinet doors made to order, so we covered them with a knotty pine design of adhesive plastic paper and then varnished them with clear varnish. Everyone thinks they are natural wood! On the wooden part of the cabinets we removed all of the paint and finished it with clear varnish. They are perfectly beautiful. The varnish gives a shine and when I wax them, they are so easy to wipe off and to keep clean. We also covered an old card table that was watermarked from glasses and so forth. The table is now as good as new, for the rest of it was in good shape. Marcan Prinz Letter of Laughter: Dear Heloise: I love your column. Keep up the good work. Even if I don't use all of the suggestions you print, it comforts me to read that other harried housewives have problems, too! C.J. Dear Heloise: If the hem of your dress is accidentally pulled loose at the office, or you happen to be in a hurry, just use a piece of tape and stick it back. This works so well that at times I have forgotten to put the hem in properly when I get home! Mrs. Marshall F.

The secret is to catch the top thread on the hem and pull. . . Your hem is out in a jiffy and you can save all the thread. Mrs. K.S.W. Dear Folks: If you are one to use "iron-on" tape to mend clothing with, but always forget it and don't want to stop and go to your sewing box to find it in the middle of your ironing job. . . take a safety phi and pin a piece of tape to the end of your mining board along with a small pair of scissors. This way, as you come along a rip or a tear, just whack a piece off and iron it on. Mending done the lazy, easy way not only saves steps but a few words in mis house. . . Heloise Dear Heloise: I keep a kettle of water over my pilot light on our gas stove and always have hot water ready without turning the hot water faucet on. By doing this, it only takes a few minutes to get the water completely boiling for coffee, or anything else that might require boiled water.

Then she reminds Mr. Worthington of his barbershop appointment. Next she tactfully suggests that he Ana buy Mrs. Worthington something special for her birthday. (He had forgotten, so of course he's grateful.) The next thing you know she goes along with him to select the wife's gift. After shopping they stop for a few martinis. Suddenly, Mr. Worthington becomes "Hal." The rest is easy. Hal can't seem to get his work done during office hours — so he must work evenings. The night work doesn't sit very well at home and his wife begins to complain. This, of course, makes her a nag. So after 20 years and three kids, Mr. Worthington decides his wife doesn't understand him. They have nothing in common. She is a bore. Don't tell me my imagination has run wild, Miss Landers, because it just happened to me.— Mrs. WORTHINGTON Dear Mrs. Worthington (which as everybody knows is a made up name): The secretary has an inside track but so does the nurse or the dental assistant— any female whose activities bring her into close contact with a male.

I like the stiletto heels and I also like vinyl floors. Incidentally, I have both and they seem fairly compatible. Dear Ann: Help! I have a chance to attend the Baptist Youth Conference next July in Palestine. I went to the Toronto Conference in 1958 and it was the most inspiring experience of my life. But my husband says he will divorce me if I go. I would be attending as a representative of my parents' evangelistic organization and they would pay my expense. Glenn and my parents do not get along. He says this trip offer is an effort on their part to cause trouble between us. Please, Ann, tell ma what to do?— REBA CHE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, February 22, tffti Dear Reba: It would be nice if somehow you could get Glenn's blessings, because if you can't I say don't go. He resents your parents' part in this, and he may have a valid point. Either persuade him or stay home and save your marriage.

DRAKE'S BAKERY For Rolls-Donuts-Pits and all other bakery products breeds other things. I've said it before and I'll say it again—no man ever listened to the siren's call unless he was ready to hear it. Dear Ann Landers: You were right when you told "Irate Reader" that floors were made to walk on and she should not ask guests to remove their shoes even though the spike heels were ruining her vinyl entrance-way. This is what the floor covering industry has to say: "Spiked heels are causing the biggest headache in years. They not only leave noticeable identations in hard-surface floors, they also cut the pile and puncture the backings of carpets. What can be done? Nothing. We can only hope for fickle fashion to dictate a change. The woman who is considering a new floor should be told that there is no way to protect that floor against spike heels. Even asphalt and hardwood floors can be damaged.
