Pans and kettles with loose han
dles or rounded or uneven bottoms
should not be used for cooking be
cause of the danger of spilling
their contents and scalding some
one. Make it a rule to turn handles
of pans toward the back of the stove
or table, for if the handle is left
sticking out, the pan may be tipped
over by someone brushing against it
or may be reached by a child. This
is a common home accident and is
just as likely to happen in the hurry
of re i v ing a lunch at school, especial

The black paper they come in pre

become rusty run them through fine
steel wool, if you have it, or through
a piece of beeswax, or an emery
