A good book to dip into, whenever you feel the need to channel your inner housewife: it looks great and there are lots of old-fashion "handy household hints".

Awesome in many ways! 20 Nov. 2010
By Mary Sims - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In a day when we are more and more going green, this book is a Godsend! There is all sorts of great tips and hints for maintaining a clean home the way our grandparents did. There is plenty of examples of amusing ways things were done "back in the day". The nostalgic artwork is lovely too, only wish some of it were larger. I love this book! Another Susan Wagonner gem!

Pre premixed 22 Jun. 2008
By T. Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a fun book and I know that it will come in handy. Alot of the hints were used by my mother so I already knew them, but in this world of convenience, it's nice to know how to mix good cleaners for your home.

Those were the days! 7 Jan. 2008

What a neat book. Most of those hints still work just as well today even though we have many other products available. It also looks great on my bookcase in the cottage.

Nostalgia at it's best... 12 April 2014
By J. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I checked this book out from the library. I collect household hints books and thought this looked like fun. I liked it so well, I bought my own copy. The illustrations are wonderful. The hints are pretty much what I already knew but are presented in words and pictures of my youth.

If you need help with your chores, please do think about buying this and putting it on your resource library shelf. It has many helpful hints presented in a colorful setting.

Thanks.
