By NEA Beauty Kdilnr If there's never enough hot water in your house to meet the needs of the frequent summer bathers, better lake Inventory of the situation and ,«ee what can be done. A little study will probably reveal that the daily demand for fresh clothes plus the race for the cooling spray of the shower are the big causes of the hot water shortage. And as far as the -shower is concerned, there are a few hardy soul* who can plunge directly under a stream of cold water. Most people like to start their showers with warm water and work down to cold. ' That's why even the most modern automatic gas water heater has to keep pretty busy to meet all the demands of a family. For these reasons, the Gas Appliance Manufacturers' Association experts say you're more apt to run out of hot water in the summer than at any other lime. They recommend a check-up on your hot water needs to keep the entire summer pleasant as well as healthy. A good rule-of-thnmb to follow, according to these experts. Is to have a water heater, wilh a 30- gallon tank If your home has one or two bedrooms and a bath, a 40- gallon tank for two or three bedrooms and two baths, and B 50- gallon lank for large homes. An Important part of summer beauty care is the bath. Be sure your family has the necessary hot water to keep them comfortable and attractive.
