Hints From Heloise Cleans Bedsprings With Garden Hose By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: One day when I was cleaning the bed springs my husband watched me for a minute and then asked, "Why don't we take them outside at house cleaning time and just hose them down with a garden hose?" We did just that last Saturday. The springs will dry in 15 minutes. I am so delighted <vith this idea that I just wanted to pass it on, especially since I have profited by so m a n y hints through this column. Hilda Schal- tegger Helois* Dear Heloise: Did you ever run short of bread crumbs? Well, I did, but I found some hot dog rolls in my freezer. I removed a few hot dog rolls, broke one in half cross-wise (while still frozen) and rubbed the broken ends together back and forth and in my mixing bowl fell the nicest crumbs you ever saw! You can bet there are hot dog rolls in my freezer at all times now to make those spur-of- the-moment bread crumbs. Dorothy Ostrowski Dear Dorothy: Gal, you are a whizz! I tried this when making my meat loaf today. However, I used my grater! Have you ever tried it on a grater? No soggy mess and your grater does not even get dirty! Heloise Dear Heloise: I am another member of the "too late smart" club. The key word I offer is vinegar! White vinegar will work but cider vinegar is faster and much more thorough. Our new chrome fixtures were becoming dull with water deposit build-ups and not wanting to use cleansers, I tried this: Since vinegar will dissolve sediment in tea kettles, I soaked a terry cloth in vinegar and "snuggled" it all around, over and under the faucets, then literally poured more vinegar over the cloth and let it soak for a few hours. Besides removing the spots from our faucets and so forth it also loosens all leftover cleanser in the hard to get at places. Afterwards. . . just rinse down and the chrome is bright as new again! Mrs. Paul Sinec Dear Gals: It works! And you won't be any more surprised than I was. One of my neighbors had this accumulation on her faucets. We poured vinegar on a terry cloth wash rag and let it soak. Then we wiped it with another rag! Thanks to this woman who shared this hint with us. . . it really works! Love, Heloise Dear Heloise: When washing the foam rubber mattress covers on my children's beds, I fill the bathtub with warm soap suds, fold the covers in fourths and place them in the water. Instead of washing them by hand. . . I use my feet and by "tramping" on them back and forth. . . while they are under the sudsy water. This is twice as easy as doing it by hand and it does a wonderful job! To rinse them off, I just turn on the cold shower (of course 1 get out of the tub first!) and that's all there is to it. . . wonderful.

The Friendly Store LAVENDER FLU Your grandfather probably knew this cure. Flowers of lavender quilted in a hat were supposed to ward off "stuffed-up" noses and head colds. Pleasant treatment—but certainly not a sure cure. Today, thanks to medical science, we have numerous effective vaccines , . . against flu, whooping cough and other respiratory diseases... to immunize and protect us from the discomforts of infections. So, why suffer needlessly. Ask your physician about them. Let him prescribe the medication that is most effective for your needs. Then come to us for prescription service.
