SUNDAY, JULY 27, 1969 HILP FOR HOMIMAKIRS D EARHELOISE: Wow! Have I just hit on an idea—thanks to my husband's birthday. I made him a cake and frosted it,*but discovered I didn't have.anything to decorate it with. Then 1 spied my little bottles of food — coloring. ing shears and fit it in. My So, with a very, tiny paint- dresser drawers look very brush (toothpick could be attractive.' I enjoy them ' every time I open one. Myrtle B. Ehle Watch for sales and hit a remnant counter, gals. They don't all have to match. After all, only one drawer is opened at a time. Heloise DEAR HELOISfc: Well, I just made a "beauty apron" and I am so pleased with it I just have to tell you about it. I had a short apron with three large pockets. In one pocket I now keep rollers, bobby pins and comb. In another I keep nail-polish remover, cotton, nail file and clippers. And in the third pocket I keep mirror, tweezers, cold cream, witch hazel and cotton balls. (The 1 nail-polish remover and witch hazel I" have transferred to small bottles.) Now I just grab my apron when I need'a rest during the day and 1 end up with a little beauty care at the same time. 1 hang the apron on the inside of my linen closet where it is always handy. I can even use it while talking on the phone! Mrs. Rollman used) arid red food coloring, I painted "Happy Birthday" on the top and painted flowers around the sides. I'm certainly no artist, but it looked great (even if I do say so, myself!) Mrs. Barbara Bilyeu DEAR HELOISE: I buy quilted cotton or nylon by the yard in a lovely floral pattern. .(Such as you buy for bedspreads). .; I cut .H the size of my- dresser drawers with pink- DEAR HELOISE: My 8-year-old son came up with an idea for polish- ing shoes that eliminates splashing liquid polish on the floor/or rug. He has a box large enough to hold b'oth shoes. He puts them, inside the box while he polishes them. All the mess is in the box. Afterwards' he stores the whole kit and caboodle under his bed. Now each member of the family has his own polish and a box lined with lots of newspaper to absorb any spills. Has sure saved my floors. Mrs. Frank Burik DEAR HELOISE: Recently there was a special on hamburger at our meat shop, so we purchased ten pounds of it. After I made it all into patties ready to fry or broil, I put them all on a cookie sheet and set the whole thing in the freezer till they were frozen solid. Then, with a spatula, I slipped them all into one plastic bag. There was no wax paper to toother about, since, after they're frozen, they don't stick together. How marvelous it is now to reach for them when we're in a hurry and not have that fight to separate them> Annette Plourde If y<m few* • hlat» prob- i«p; or Mifwttop y0B'4,inut to «lur«... write to HdolM !• car* of SIYOND THI MIL DEAR HELOISE. Here's a marvelous idea for a baby shower: Fill a diaper pail with diapers, soap, lotion, powder, diaper pins, etc. All are needed items and seldom received It saves the mother-to-be from buying all the essentials. Just tie a large bow to the handle, and your gift is ready. Mary M Eary DEAR HELOISE: Instead of using cardboard rolls from wax paper to hold knitting and crochet needles, ask a clerk in the lingerie department of your store for a long, round girdle box. I cut one in half and replaced the lid to make a holder for Crochet needles. These boxes are excellent for the purpose, because they hold lots of needles and hooks. Mrs v> Ci Davis 7-27 DEAR HELOISE. I use sponges' for everything instead of dishcloths, cleaning cloths, etc. To freshen them when they become soiled and sour, I soak them in lemon juice and water, rinse them several times in warm water and lay them in my kitchen window in the sun to dry. Then they arc as fresh as new. Nellie DEAR HELOISE: To get my bangs straight when she cuts my hair, my mother slides a regular two- inch headband down on my forehead (Indian style). After sliding it down as fat- as I waYit it, she cuts along the bottom of the band. This keeps my bangs flat and even and easy for her to cut straight. Marty M. DEAR HELOISE: This is an oldie to me— seems I've always known it —but it may be of some value to others. If you want to fasten a couple of sheets of paper together and don't have a stapler or paper clip handy, simply place the two papers together, fold down a corner and tear a small slot hear the center. Then fold down the 1 torn piece. It's quick, easy and economical. It'll hold .two or three sheets of paper to- gethcr nicely. DEAR HELOISE: Have you noticed that a single layer of thin material will fray when cut with pinking shears? Try placing an old scrap of . cotton material underneath the thin cloth when cutting. It makes a firm cut edge and the thin material doesn't fray at all. Mrs. Lenna Coast LETTER OF THOUGHT to DEAR HELOISE: This thought came mind this morning: If we arc not doing what we like to do, why not try to like what we are doing?
