Hints From Heloise Real Tricky Way J J To Battle Moths By HELOISE CRUSE Dear. Folks: I just want to pass on a little tip to other housewives who use moth balls and flakes. Did you know that you could put these flakes and balls in an ordinary paper envelope and seal it and that they could be practically "thrown" any place, such as the back of your closet shelves, attic, basement and so forth? Well... .I could write a thousand words MI how wonderful this idea is. In the f i r s t place, ; you can see the white envelope. All you have to do when the moth flakes have Helois* evaporated is touch the envelope . . .if it's empty. . . then you are not going to get any more work- in* from it. If it's full, you don't have to bother about it for another month or so. I have found after testing this for nine months — that if the envelope is completely sealed it still gives off a bit of odor but that if you take an ice pick and punch a few holes (ladies, please do not take your fingernail and gouge the envelope because the moth balls will evaporate too fast) that the odor escapes more quickly. It's really a tricky way to keep moth balls and flakes — and I have tried many, many ways. After testing all of the hints you sent in, I found putting moth balls in an envelope was the best method. Do keep moth balls out of the reach of little children. Read the caution labels and Joe Blow's instructions. They're important. Heloise Dear Heloise: Are you cross-eyed? I saw a picture of you in a magazine that was! Also see that you do wear glasses. Please answer in your column. Sandra Bowen Dear Sandra: I am not cross-eyed that 1 know of, but I do wear glasses. At 43 I found that I could see better with 'em! Love, Dear Heloise: For women who have wall-to- wall carpet: Ever fret over how to vaccum right up to the walls and corners where the carpel meets the base board? I have a very small nylon brush which looks like a miniature whisk broom and in fact was intendec as a clothes brush. It fits onto the cord rack of my vacuum cleaner and hangs there as a permanent attachment, always ready when I need it to whisk out those areas so hard to get to. This gets every bit of dust and lint and the tiny particles thai seem to want to hide in the cracks against the walls and corners If there is any practical way of cleaning the cloth tapes on Venetian blinds without taking down the blinds, I would appreciate i if some woman would let us know Gerry Dear Folks: Anyone got any ideas on how to wash these tapes without removing the blind? They sure will be appreciated. Or is there an answer? Write to me in care o: this paper so we can put your answer in this column. Heloise Dear Heloise: Recently I saw my neighbor reeling fresh beets with a paring knife and wondered if there are thers who haven't learned the -asy way to peel beets. Place the beets in a pan of water, leave one-half inch of the tern and the root of the beet on. This keeps the sand out of the beet while cooking! Bring the water to a boil and continue to mil for about 15 minutes. Remove the beets from the ire and place them under cold water in the sink. Allow the water o run on the beets until they are ! enough to handle. Then cut off both ends of the beet and the peeling will slip right. off. Slice, dice, or leave whole and place in clean pan of water — which will have no sand at all — and cook until done. Billie Roberts Dear Heloise: I wrap steel wool soa°p pads in oil between uses and it prevents rusting. Agnes Feldes 5ear Heloise: Did you know that "Mother Nature" will whiten clothes overnight? Leave the clothes on the line outside, and overnight the damp dew will whiten them. When you have beans to "look over" pour hot water on them and let them stand about 20 minutes. The bad beans will appear on top like magic. . . even the darker ones! Marty Dear Heloise: The condensation of moisture on windows may be eliminated if people will open the top of the irindow a bit. (This means pull the top pane of the window down until it has at least a little crack in it so the air can get in) Open the bottom window a little bit also. This way air can circulate. This would eliminate many pro- lems in households such as rotting of the wood frames themselves. Emmie Snap Dear Heloise: Here is one: When you buy su- »ar put it in an old coffee pot. You can pour this any time you need it without any spilling! Rita Melville Heloise welcomes all mail, especially household hints which she can pass on to readers as space permits. However, because of the tremendous volume of mail she receives daily, Heloise is unable to answer all individual letters. She will answer readers' questions in her column whenever possible.
