(Herald Photo) Hints From Heloise Have Taffeta Resized To Restore Its Rustle By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Folks: You all have asked so many questions on dry cleaning that 1 have submitted six of them to Mr. J. W. McEvay, "The Fabric Doctor" and grand winner of Cleaning trophy. He has answered them in down-to-earth language. Here they are: Question — After several cleanings my taffeta dress has gone limp. Is there any way to restore the body? , - , Answer — Taffeta materisl is treated in t h e m a n u f a c- turing by a pro- j cess known as sizing which imparts body andl rustle to t h e fabric. The sizing gradually dis- Heloi » solves leaving the garment limp, Ask your dry cleaner to re-size the dress when he dry cleans it. Question — The dye from the trim of a white wool sweater has run into the white. What can I do to remove it? Answer — Wash the sweater in the same manner as before to start the dye running again. Then quickly rinse out the suds in clear water and finally rinse in a salt water solution to set the dye This is not always successful but it is worth a try. Question — When a wool sweater is shrunk, can it be stretch ed again? Answer — If the shrinkage is severe and the wool has mattec there is no hope. However, in many cases the professional dry- cleaner can block the sweater to he correct size. Question — Can Fur Fabric coats be dry cleaned? Answer — Original instructions on labels were to clean by the ?urrier Method only. However, he National Institute of Dry Cleaning has devised a special method of di"y cleaning fur fable coats which is less expensive, more thorough, and completely safe. Regular dry cleaning procedure is not recommended. And gals, I think we hit the nail on the head when we wrote the Fabric Doctor today. Thank you Mr. McEvay. Heloise Dear Heloise: After my fifth child — and trying to teach them to hold their own glass in their hands to drink their milk — I learned that the glass is so slippery that their little hands just cannot coordinate. My answer was to wrap some adhesive tape around the glass. I have found that this is rough enough, but yet mooth enough so that the glass did not slip out of their hands and they learn to drink much faster! Sally Dear Heloise: If you will use the waxed paper which comes from a roll . . . and put a piece of it under your ice trays after defrosting. . . one will not have any trouble removing them from the freezer. They will not stick to the bottom of the freezer. Margie Sheffler Dear Heloise For those who have sweet little birds . . . whether they talk Try These Suggestions Don't Let Housecleaning Take Joy Out Of Spring or not makes no difference — ', would like you to know that wash my' bird perches once a week. Here's how: I buy two sets! These are very cheap. Each week I clean and thoroughly dry one set of perches. I have found that my bird never gets sore and scaled feet this way. Machelle Blake Dear Heloise Do you want to. know what to do with that batch of wool left over from knitting sweaters, socks and all those other things? If you have a grandchild, or friend who has a child or grandchild. . . knit that baby doll a pair of slippers! The little kids love them, the grandmothers and friends adore you for doing so! K.G. By ROSEMARY CRIST Home Economics Agent Spring is associated in peoples' mind, with such things as spring fashions, spring housecleaning, daffodils and dandelions. Spring housecleaning perhaps loes not mean quite the exhaust- ng ritual it once meant. I hope not. However, since most homemakers do at least a little extra cleaning, at this time I would like ;o offer a few suggestions. Let's consider the type of soil that has ;o be removed. First there is ; h e loose dust and dirt that collects in the louse. A vacuum cleaner is your best riend for removing loose soil at any level. Use t h e vacuum cleaner as much as possible. It's easier and it removes more dirt! Oily film and spots may be removed by warm water and detergent or by warm water and a dry cleaning solvent. Our new liquid cleaning detergents work well on this type of soil because they have a solvent in the formula. A dry powder such as corn starch, talc or fullers earth mixed with a solvent can be used on oil spots on wall paper and then brushed away. Abrassives are needed for films, spots and tarnish that can not be dissolved by water or fat solvents. Here you must be careful. Too many homemakers, in wishing to work fast, choose coarse abrasives for cleaning tasks requiring fine abrasives. There is a need in every home for both corase and fine abrasives. You may tell the difference in abrasives by the feel. Never use coarse abrasives on new procelain enamel bathroom fixtures, kitchen equipment or chrome finishes. An excellent fine abrasive may be made by mixing one third of a cup of boiling water and half a cup of whiting. More boiling water may be added if it becomes too thick. This cleaner is wonderful for all chrome and the sole plates of irons. This season fashion is focusing on the shift. They're calling it length sheath garment that was held in place by a single shoulder strap. Assyrians of the 8th Century B.C., both men , and women, wore a T-shaped garment of patterned material called a tunic. Greek men of the cassical period also wore a short, loose tunic for traveling or active sports, and central European peasants have worn beautifully - embroidered tunics for centuries. In the 1920's a flapper called her straight - cut dress a chemise. Then in the late 1950's, this same dress was called the sack. You'll find many shifts shown in 1963 are as simple as sweaters; others are elegant enough for evening wear. Most are sold with a belt. Whether or not you wear your shift cinched at the waist you'll find it a comfortable and high-style costume. While we are discussing fashions, let's talk about the colorful printed fabrics for your wardrobe. Choose the design that will flatter you. Large floral designs are most pleasing when used for garments designed with folds and gathers. The large contrasting colored] motifs blend in the fullness of pleats or gathers. In a straight skirt or fitted waist the design could appear widely separated and perhaps jerky in color and design. Designs with muted colors are more easy to wear than ones using bright hues. Size of the motif also influences the becomingness of the fabric for an individual. Large spotty patterns add to the apparent body size. If the design is arranged in a horizontal pattern, width is added to the figure while a vertical pattern gives the illusion of more height. Swirling motifs emphasize the round or curved line. Sharp geometric designs give stiffness and angular line to the human figure. The width and colors of stripes determine the effect they will have on the figure. A vertical movement or pattern is good for the short and thin person while horizontal lines are best for the tall and thin figure. Any pattern using subdues colors decreases the size of the person wearing a garment of the fabric. "new" However, this figure-free garment known by various names has a long and illustrious history.
