The trap is clear and water flows down the drain normally. I have tried to wash it out with ammonia, household cleaners and baking soda and I use a drain cleaner every week. No other basin or sink in the house has that odor so I hope someone can help me.—LEONA DEAR POLLY - Mrs. D. K. can make writing paper look like parchment by rubbing a slightly damp tea bag across the paper. When it is all damp, put in the oven set on low heat and leave until dry. Watch carefully. For an added effect, she could burn around the edges of tha paper.—LEANN DEAR POLLY—At, 4-H Camp we learned to make paper look like parchment as Mrs. D. K. wants to do. Crumple the paper until it is soft and wrinkled. Smooth out. Brush cool coffee all over it as you would paint and this will stiffen and yellow it, too—JULIE DEAR GIRLS—Bonded papev looks a bit better when so treated. Plain typing paper looked to me like just what it was—dyed paper. Burning the edges is that are activated by weight on the seat and a loud buzzer sounds if the seat belt is unfastened. There is even a seat belt light, too. I will grant that this is for safety reasons but the weight required to activate this is not realtistic. In my car a carton of soft drinks on a seat will set it off as will my purse and a couple of books or a small bag of groceries. I was really mad when I found that (he usual items I carry on the front seat will set it off so I had it removed and then traveled from Missouri to Texas and back (alone) in blissful quiet without having to hook up a belt on a seat where no one was sitting. With all those great future plans such as cars that will not start or shift gears until the belts are fastened, someone should look into this stupid weight activated sensor and do something more realistic about the minimum weight. Men usually never carry many of the things women are always carting around. Engineers test accordingly, but they better find a cure or other women will have them removed as I have and all their engineering and genius will be wasted. Please air my Pet read the double ring ceremony for the couple. Preceding the bride were Miss Kim Scott, maid of honor, New Windsor, and Miss K a t h y Plunkett, the bridegroom's sister, junior bridesmaid, Viola. Miss Tygret carried a colonial bouquet of white and yellow daisy mums and gypsophila with white streamers as a corn- bride's brother, Todd Tygret, New Windsor, was junior groomsman. Ushers were Mark Johnson, New Windsor, Michael Crummy, and Randy Millikan, both of Viola.

The buttons stay in better shape and do not get scratched.-LULA KATE DEAR POLLY - I quickly and easily fill my steam iron with/ a clean plastic squeeze detergent bottle that I keep just for this. After making a thread loop for a hook to go through on a garment, such as at the neckline, dab colorless nail polish on the loop to stiffen the thread and make it easier to find and fasten. I empty and wash pump-type mustard jars and then refill them with catsup and mayonaisse and find they are easy for the children to use when eating hamburgers. -FAY DEAR POLLY - I am sure I am not the only consumer with ing Carollyn whose husband's sweaters stretch out through the ribbing and do not snap back after washing. All she needs is a large round-point knitting needle that is used in seam sewing on knits, and round elastic for use on sewing machine bobbins. On the wrong side of the sweater ribbing, pick up and sew elastic through the knit stitches (usually two) bringing it up two inches shorter than the full ribbing size. Run two or three such rows depending on the width of the bottom ribbing. This will also work on ribbed cuffs if they are not w:rn with the ribbing turned back as cuffs.—CHARLINE You will receive a dollar if Polly uses your favorite homemaking idea, Pet Peeve, Polly's Problem or solution to a problem.
