Doris Nelson Letter Of Laughter Dear Heloise: The time and mess saver that I would like to be able to purchase is shortening-wrapped in paper, with the amount marked in cups, etc., so I could cut along a line rather than measure and get a mess!

Heloise Dear Heloise: A friend of mine was visiting my .home yesterday while I was cleaning a spot off my rug with carbon tetrachloride. She was shocked that I had found this feet when inhaled and may effect arganic tissues of the kidneys, heart and liver. Your friend was right — take her advice. H you ever have to use it, make sure the room is well ventilated. Dear Heloise: I run a small launderette. I take great pride in the whiteness and brightness of my washes and the majority of my do-it- yourself girls are soon taking lessons. We have soft water but we stil use not over one-fourth cup o tri-sodium phosphate (commonly called TSP) in every wash ant just enough soap to barely break suds. When washing throw rugs, we use no soap at all. . . just dou ble the amount of TSP. The firs time you wash your throw rug; this way you will get a big shock . . The rugs are much brighter TSP can be purchased at hard ware and paint shops. If peopl find they have too much stare! in their dresses, wash them again in cold water and some of th starch will be eliminated. Es pecially if they tumble dry th garment afterwards. When drying starched clothes in a dryer, dry a few at a tim for a short period. If they are tot stiff, let them tumble five min utes longer.

Measure the two cups of cold milk into the sauce pan as usual, ake out one-half cup of the milk and put into a bowl. Mix the pudding mixture into he half-cup of cold milk and put he sauce pan with the remain- ng milk over low heat. When he milk is fairly hot, stir the mdding mixture into the hot milk and in a few seconds it is thickened! I admit there is an extra bowl o wash but to me it is a time- saver as I detest standing over a stove waiting and stirring. E. M.
