Soap Film Of £ Socks Dear Heloise: After doing five loads of laundry every Monday morning and always ending up with about five pairs of my husband's Mack socks which must be washed separately (I cannot do another load of wash), I have found the easiest way to launder them. I fill the wash basin with a small amount of liquid detergent, turn on the water faucet to make lots of bubbles and allow the hottest water possible to fill up the basin. Then I my potato masher to plunge up and down to wash the socks! With the potato masher lean use much hotter water, and never ruin my h a n d s by put ting them in hot Hdofaw water and strong detergents. After the wash procedure, pull the drain and let the soapy suds runout. Turn on the faucet with hot water again, and let it run over the socks while the drain plug is still out. Close the drain again and fill with clean rinse water. Rinse in the same way using your potato masher again. After this, pull the drain and let all the water flow away. Let the locks become completely cool be- fore wringing them out. This way you have also kept the hot water off your hands again. Now, can you tell us how to get the gray residue off of black socks? K. Gruetsmoker Dear K.: Unless your socks have been bleached — and I do not think they have according to your long diser- tation — this gray residue is called soap film! The cheapest, quickest, and best way I know of to remove this soap film is on that last rinse water in your socks. . . add about cup of vinegar! If your soap film is very heavy this operation may have to be repeated. But don't waste your time doing it twice each week. For the next weeks just rinse your socks in vinegar water. Do not rinse out this vinegar solution. After these socks are dried, the odor of the vinegar will completely leave! Heloise Dear Heloise: This idea may help other mothers who have three or more children close together in age. When our children are about the same size and we wash their socks it becomes a problem as to how to separate them/ whose sock belongs in whose drawer, and does this navy blue one go with that black one? I have solved this problem by buying my youngest child all white or beige socks, the second child all red or blue or multicolored socks, and the oldest child navy blue and dark colored. Now after I do 32 pairs of socks a week, I can look at them immediately and tell to which child they belong. It certainly saves me lots of time. May I express my appreciation to other mothers who have written in and have helped me save time and energy by sharing their household hints. Mary S. Dear Mary: It's people like you who take the time to write us who keep this old world going! Love, Heloise Letter of Laughter In reply to the woman's query of whether she can use a tea bag over and over again, I once heard of a man who used the same tea bag 86 times! Then he slit it open and used the remaining tea leaves for snuff. Finally he sold the bag to a midget for a table napkin. He suffered no ill after effects! A Man This letter was edited and reedited. But it brought such laughter into our home that I though I should share it with you! Heloise 'Baptist WMS Meets Mrs. Allen Troutman gave devotions at the N.
