First Aid for Ailina Houses
By Roger C Whitman
Question: Our basement founda
tion is cut rock of an sixes, with ce
ment between. The cement is al
■ ways falling off like sand, and is
unsightly. My son and I would like
to finish the basement so that we
could use and enjoy It. How can
the walls be made smooth so that
they can be painted or refinished?
Answer: If you intend to make a
rumpus room for grownups, you
could coat the rock walls with tar
and then put up insulating board
walls on furring strips. First, the
old, loose mortar should be raked
out and the joints properly re
painted by a mason. (Your son
could do this if he has had experi
ence.) If the basement is damp, do
not attempt to put up the wallboard
—at least, not until all dampness
has been cleared up. It would be
simpler to make the walls smooth by
applying a coating of dense cement
mortar. A leaflet describing this
work is being sent to you.
Making a Varnish Remover.
Question: I wish to remove the
old varnish from some upholstered
furniture before reupholstering. I
have an old recipe that is said to
be excellent for removing old paint
and does not hurt the wood. It is
a mixture of laundry starch and
lye. What would be the right
! amount to use?
! _
I Answer: Z would not use that
recipe at all. for lye is extremely in
jurious to wood fibres. Get a good
commercial varnish or paint re
mover and follow directions far use,
being particular to clean off every
trace of remover after scraping off
the varnish, using benzine or tur
pentine. Take care not to have any
open flames nearby, as the remover
is Inflammable, also the benzine.
Wallpaper Hard to Remove.
Question: When we papered our
walls, we used boiled starch for
paste. It sticks like glue. Now that
I want to repaper I find the paper
hard to get off. Soaking it with hot
water and scraping is a slow Job.
How can I remove it?
Answer: Next time hr soaking
the paper with hot water and wash
ing soda, then go over it with coarse
sandpaper wrapped around a Mock
of wood, for easy handling. It will
be slow work, but with help you
should be able to get all the paper
off. A handful of steel wool may
speed up the work. (Wear gloves to
protect your hands.)
Scratched Floors.
Question: My floors are pine wood
and have been varnished twice.
They are scratched in some places.
What can I do to hide the scratch
es? Will oak and varnish stain hide
them?
Answer: The effect would be bet
ter if you would first take off the

chine would remove the old varnish
and give a clean, smooth surface for

applying a coat of floor varnish of

that in width and only half an inch
thick, so that it will take up very
little room. It is made of activated
charcoal compressed into solid form.
It needs no container and it can be
placed in the refrigerator, breadbox,
or any other food container without
fear of damage to the food.
Before the charcoal brick is put
in the refrigerator, it should be
heated over a Jow flame for a
quarter of an hour. Thereafter that
process should be repeated every
week. The brick will last indefinitely
and still absorb odors If this simple
precaution is observed.
