Hints From Heloise -Make 'HeJoise Mat' For Bath Family Reunion Dear Folks: If you have a limp bathroom or toilet rug that is so worn out that it skids and wrinkles, try using two -- one on top of the other. It's great and they sore do stay put better. Then, when the top one becomes soiled, just switch 'em. Put the soiled one on the bottom. However, after using this method for six months, I even found a better idea! I,turned them back to back and, using the largest stitch on my sewing machine, sewed around the ertge (Or fold one over and make it half the size: that's-called a "Heloise Mat.") I find this real perky. It can be turned over ill a jiffy when one side gets wet. Moreover, because chenille is always - on $ the bottom, it can be used to scoot across the floor for those dribbles of water, etc. Great :n -the kitchen in front of your sink and refrigerator. Saves the energy of pushing cleaniirg at my house. I usually use a quart jar of hot water I wjth ammonia added, but was out of ammonia. I decided to try a strong baking soda and hot water solution. It worked like magic. I could just see the brushes and combs getting cleaner! It seemed to be even faster- acting than ammonia, and no fumes to smell. . Dodee Members of tile family ol Mr. and Airs.
