Tiles are so clean and nice if one is
able to afford them. The young wife

outlay, although they are rather ex
pensive at the start. Round the kitch

hygienic in every way.
The back of the sink is bound to get
splashed with the washing up after
each meal. Therefore here it is es
sential to have either tiles or zinc or
something of the kind through which
the water cannot penetrate. Zinc an
swers the purpose quite well if secure

easily cleaned daily with a little dry
The tiles, of course, are ideal, as
all they need is a washdown with
warm water daily.
A little enamel basket is so useful
in the sink fqr tea leaves and such
things which are more than likely
to go down the ?sink and eventually
stop it up. It is shaped so that it fits
into the corner of the sink, perforated
with holes, so that al) liquid passes

portant article' fresh and sweet, it
should be scalded each time after use,
or else washed out thoroughly in hot
water and rinsed well in several wa?

jug of hot water. Pile up the plates
neatly. A little arrangement saves
the muddle one so often sees in con
nection with washing up. Wash all
the cleanest things first to save the
water. Rinse glass in cold water after
washing in hot and polish well with a
dry, clean cloth.
The most useful and healthy floor
covering for the kitchen is linoleum.

of ammonia in it. Dry with a clean
cloth (with no fluff on it). Polish

basket into the bathtub, resting it on
