Household Hints In order to keep ice tea from becoming cloudy after brewing, pour about one inch of ice water into the pitcher first and then add your tea. This has never failed for me and then, too, it means the tea can be made before using and chilled which saves ice cubes. Manufacturers tell us that in or, der to clean paper curtains and draperies we should wipe them with a damp clqth. However, I have found that after tubbing them with Spic and Span, hanging them carefully to drip and irtaing them with a steam iron, their orig. inal crispness is preserved through many washings.
