My N«n, Satnfcy, Jne 12,1965 Hints From By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: If I forget to soak beans overnight, is there any way to soften them to shorten the cooking time and save on utilities? I am on such a tight budget. Please help me. Marie Dear Marie: M-m-m ... I love beans! When I forget to put them in to soak the night before, I just sort them, put them in my colander and wash them under the hot water faucet. You'll find half of those "rocks" weren't rocks at all but hard bits of dirt. After they are washed, put them in a pot and cover with enough water to come about three inches above the beans. Put the cover on and bring to a boil for five minutes. Now turn out- your fire. This is where you will save on the utility bifl. DON'T remove the cover. Let the beans set an hour or two. Then I usually pour off this water (and you know why?) and replace it with fresh water, add my seasonings and cook 'em from there. Beans (any kind) are delicious when sliced onions or canned tomatoes are added. Never, Never add salt until a few minutes before you are ready to serve them. This is what causes them to be hard-as- rocks. Bless you, Marie ... I'm going to have beans tonight, too! Heloise Dear Heloise: Those twin eight-year-old girls of mine are very active ... always romping around. Yesterday, when one of them skinned a knee, grandma went running for the mercurochrome, which, in her haste to apply, was spilled on Sally's new cotton plaid dress—a gift from her grandparents. Sally is heartbroken! Please tell me how I can remove the spots from her dress. Mazie To remove mercurochrome and merthiolate stains, soak overnight in a basin of warm water with four tablespoons of ammonia. Or: If alcohol is safe for the dye, dilute with two parts water and sponge as long as any stain remains. Or: Wet withjiquid_detergent Corning Events Demolay Mothers The Mother's Circle of Demolay will meet at 7:30 p. m. Monday in the Masonic Temple. A. 0. A.

Always be sure to spot test first and to follow instructions and cautions on the container. And Mss those twins for all of us. Heloise Dear Heloise: I am only 12, but I have a household idea. If any readers of this column have wall paper sample books, I found it a good idea to cut the wall paper into place mat-size and scallop the edges. They make cute throw-away place mats. Karen Linder LETTER OF LAUGHTER Dear Heloise: My three-year-old son took a good bar of soap and threw it into his sand pile. It landed on one side, so I removed it and tried to scrape off the sand, but could not. I put it away so that we might use it if we ever had an emergency. One day, I found I had used the last bar of soap and was forced to use the one that had fallen into the sand pile. To my delight, I found I had never enjoyed a shower, as much as I did when using the soap-with-the- sand for scrubbing. Now, I soften one side of a bar of soap and put it in some sand myself. Just try it, and you will see what I mean about enjoying a shower. This is especially good for legs, arms, and feet, plus your back. Mrs. L. Feschbien Dear Heloise: When you want to replace old elastic in a garment, lightly sew the ends of the old and the new together. When you draw out the old, the new follows. Tape or ribbon can be replaced the same way. J. M. W.
