Harpole, Home Agent Why don’t my nylon stockings wear as long as they used to? You’ve probably asked this question* Or heal'd it asked. The answer is in the denier or sheemess of the hose you buy now. Don’t you do as most women and buy 15 denier stockings for every occasion. Early nylons were 30 denier, exactly twice as heavy. The 30 denier stockings are still available, but most of us prefer the 15 denier of even sheerer hois ery. It isn’t reasonable to expect these dress and evening sheers to gives as long wear as the service able, but still flattering, 30 denier stocking. Ask for a copy of Pub lication 356, which will give you tips on Buying Hose. " Water Softener Uses You, 11 find on most grocery shelv®o a packaged water softener that you can use if your water is hard. It should be used in both wash and rinse water as you do your laun dering. It will help you with some othei looundering pdoblems, too. To remove line on dark cottons, wash with a cup of water softener and use nothing else. Sometimes it requires two washings. Try the water softener in the regular wash i nd wash dark cottons separately, To condition or strip clothes. If you have “tattle tell” gray, it can be removed by adding a cup of bleach and a cup of water softener. Wash for 9 minutes. Then go through complete wash using de tergent.

Serve with whip ped cream or ice cream. Care of Household Metals To clean brass and copper, sprink le on salt and a little vinegar. Rub, rinse and dry. For a dull finish use oil and rottenstone. For a bright polish use whiting and denatured alcohol. Mild scouring powders are best to clean aluminum. Cooking acid oods such as tomatoes also bright .n it. Avoid soaps, lyes and other strong alkalis since they may eat through. Do not soak for long time since aluminum may pit if it stands in water. Add 3 tablespoons baking soda and a quart of warm water to an iron utensil and scrub. To keep from rusting and sticking, season with unsalted fat a low setting on stove for 30 minutes. Cleaning wih soapv water or detergent may remove tilt ‘seasoning” so that foods stick.
