The method used, she said, will depend on [he.kind of metal the equipment Is imde of. Aluminum wave should be washed thoroughly wllh warm water and soap. If It Is nisly or very muddy, It will need to be scoured with fine steel wool, or a fine gritty'cleaning powder. To clean the corners, a small brush will be helpful. . .'.'.Iron cooking utensils, such as frying pans, should be washed In hot wnter and soap. To remove the rust, scouring powder or steel wool cnn be used, or a wire brush. The utensils should then be washed again with hot water or soap, rinsed In hot water and wiped dry. Iron stoves that are foully-rusted should be scoured with kerosene nnd some available abrasive such as sand, a steel brush, a brick bat, or slcel wool followed by soap, and water. Stove enamel or polish can then be applied although It Is bctUr to keep the top of the stove oiled .with stove oil than lo blacken it.
