Hints From Heloise Remove Grease Spots On Shoes Dear Heloise: I remove grease spots from my shoes by rubbing the spots with a piece of raw potato and leaving the shoes until dry. Then I apply shoe polish and shine in the normal way. This is an old Irish method of overcoming this difficulty. H. Mac Urose Ladies, we have never tried an Irish potato. However, this man does come from Ireland. One woman did write recently that she worked in a shoe factory and often grease from the machines got on the s h o e s while manu facturing them. She said that the factory used rubber cement and applied it with a brush. They allowed it to dry thoroughly and the rubber cement could be peeled or rubbed off with your hand. It's fabulous! We found it does work, but old stubborn stains need more than one coat, and the quicker you -use this method after you get a spot of grease on your shoes, the better it works! We literally spotted a pair of our shoes with bacon grease (don't you dare try this — you may ruin a good pair of shoes) and then applied this rubber cement type glue. We left it on overnight. Do not think this much time is necessary as all we have to do is wait until the glue har- Class Works Helots* dens and the solvent in the glue evaporates. It may take more than one application. Just thought we should pass this idea on in case of emergency. Since the factory uses it, why shouldn't we try it? Heloise Dear Heloise: Here is the way I remove my rust stains: I take an equal portion of salt and cream of tartar and rub it on the wet rust-stained washable garment. I put this in the sun. It removes all of my rust spots. The results which I received by using this mixture were so amazing that I wanted to pass this good hint along to other housewives. Frances Strura Dear Heloise: About those stainless steel sink stains. . . waitresses have long ago learned that the steel brightens in a jiffy when washed with carbonated water from the soda fountain. Others can use bottle varieties just as easily. Ex-waitress.

He has a nasty abit of biting people. Not only oes he bite his playmates, he Iso bites his father and me. We have tried various punishments and nothing worked. Last eek, out of sheer frustration, I it him back. This seems to have cured him, temporarily at least. But how can I ake him out in mblic or to the ome of friends? f he should jite, I can't >ite him back in lie presence of ithers. They would think I was crazy. Please tell us what to do.-OLATHE KANSAS Dear Olathc: It's not abnormal or an 18-month-old child to bite. f his biting is combined with ither symptoms of meanness, however, it could suggest real trou- )le ahead. Perhaps there is antagonism >etween you and your husband. The child may well interpret the snarling and snapping which he witnesses as a desire on the part of his parents to bite one another. Please stop biting the child — in private or in public. Sim- )ly isolate him when he bites. le'll know he is being punished. [f he is not cured of the habit within two months consult a pro- 'essional. Dear Ann Landres: My wife las five brothers. Her mother lassed away two years ago and ler father has been in poor icalth ever since. He is 72 years of age and needs someone with lim constantly. His housekeeper las given notice that she is leaving within 30 days. My wife's brothers say that ii they can't find a suitable housekeeper for their father (he's so tiard to please) we must take lim into our home. According to them it's the daughter's place o take in aging parents not the ons'. Each of them has made t clear their wives would not stand for it. My wife has a serious heart condition and is physically unable to take care of her father lere. Please tell us what to do. She is a nervous wreck from all he phone conversations. Each of ler five brothers calls every day and repeats, "It's your duty!" - TURMOIL Dear Turmoil: The notion that it's more a daughter's duty than a son's to care for his aging par ents is a neat bit of fiction. The responsibility should be shared by all children. The solution lies in getting a competent housekeeper. If there is no alternative, hire a practical nurse. The expenses, of course, should be split six ways.
