HINTS ON CLEANING HOUSE
The care of metals is no .small part
of our household care, as wc all have
to have our silver, brass, copper,
nickel and tinware spotlessly clean.
The causes of tarnish on metals is
due to a special deposit from oxida
tion caused! by moisture of the aiir, to
the presence of gas, and the direct
action of some acid or corroding sub
stance. Kitchen utensils in general must be
kept thoroughly clean, as Upon their
cleanliness depends much of the suc
cess of cooking. They retain odors
and flavors if not cleaned properly.
Avoid scorching a dish, as a chipped
dish or scorched spot will scorch very
quickly again. Never leave, dishes
standing about with food on them.
Remove the food and soak. If the
dish is scorched do not scrape but put
it on the stove to boil with soda and
Silver should be washed each time
it is used in hot soapy water, rinsed
well in hot water and dried with a
soft towel. If stained with certain
foods and acids, it then requires
special care. In polishing silver, -it is
best not to use ammonia or vinegar,
as they injure the silver, and for that
reason wc should be careful about
buying prepared mixtures. They may
do the work quickly but arc often in
jurious. It is less expensive to use
whitening moistened with alcohol. Sift
the whitening so as to remove all
hard lumps that might scratch the
silver; moisten with alcohol and ap
ply with a soft cloth; leave to dry,
then rub off and polish with chamois.
Always use friction to clean it thor
oughly. When putting silver away
wrap each piece separately. Blues
tissue paper is the best; -never wrap
silver in any material that is white,
r.s the sulphur used in bleaching will
cause tarnish on the silver. Never
leave rubber near silver, as it will dis
col r the metal.
Copper and Brass.
Copper and brass can be quickly
cleaned by using .an acidi, but this de
stroys the lustre, and' if the metal is
1 I ' T
not milch tarhished, it is best to not
use nn acid, -such as lemon juice, vine
gar or oxalic acid; rottenstone and
sweet oil have been found excellent
for cleaning these metals. It may
take longer, but one is repaid for the
soft, yellow finish obtained. The rot
tenstone can be purchased in a pow
der. For ordinary purposes Use kero
sene. If brass is much tarnished mix
common salt and oxalic acid or vine
gar, apply with a cloth and rub brisk
ly, wash well and rub dry. It can be (
polished with rottenstone and oil or j
with putty paste which is one ot the j
best manufactured pastes. Tarnish j
tiaitsctl by adds may ibe removed by
acids, but the Utensil will tarnish read
ily .again unless eardfully washed. '
Kickcl will hot oxidize, aiid is a
mo&t desirable metal. It simply re
quires to be washed in soapy water '
and thoroughly dried. It may be I
polished with whitening and alcohol. 1
Aluminum may be treated in same
manner as nickel.
Do not scrape, but allow to soak.
If discolored, use baking soda or
washing soda and water.
Do not immerse handle in hot wat- I
cr. Clean ivory handles with whiten- I
ing and lemon juice, or whitening and
Use hot soapy water for greasy
deposits, then rinse in clear, hot wat
er. Polish with a soft cloth or tis
sue paper. Clean cold water and a
soft towcll gives a better polish. Use
a brush for cut glass and dry in saw
dust free from resin.
Use either kerosene and water, salt
and water solution, vinegar and water
and rinse thoroughly with clean wat
lion utensils arc as .much used in
our kitchens as formerly, but it is
well to know how to care for them.
To clean iron when new cover with
melted baillow or grease, let stand two
or three days and then heat gradually
until the fat mclls; wash in a solotion
of- liQt water and soda; rinse .ad dry
thoroughly. It may be necessary tp
