Publishers Description
Long ago (before Pledge, Handi-Wipes, and Scrubbing Bubbles), in a galaxy far, far away (Picketfence, U.S.A.), folks wouldnt think of letting strange peopleor strange chemicalsdo their housework for them. It was a simpler time when, armed with nothing more than a can of Bon Ami and a box of Oxydol, people set about creating their own tidy vision of happinessclean, homey, and oh so inviting.
"Classic Household Hints" returns to those lovely days of yesteryear to gather hundreds of time- and money-saving tips on all things "chez nous"-from cleaning and organizing your home to buying and handling food. Want the freshest eggs in the store? Pick the ones whose shells feel roughest to the touch. Is that expensive floor wax remover you bought lying down on the job? Simple ammonia will do the trick. The books quick-take, better-than-ever information is accompanied by lively full-color retro illustrations, fascinating sidebars, quotes, and mini-facts that provide a frisky, informal look at American home life from the 1920s through the 1960s. This winning combination makes "Classic Household Hints" the perfect gift for nostalgia-hungry baby boomers, soon-to-be-homemakers, and neat freaks of every persuasion.

Helpful But Not As Fun As It Looks  Oct 13, 2008
Classic Household Hints: Over 500 Old and New Tips for a Happier Home

I really thought it would have more funny out-dated practices or that it be entertaining in some way, but no, these are actually practical and logical solutions and it reads like a "How-To" article in a women's magazine. Probably a good gift for a newlywed or someone moving out on their own for the first time or something.
Love the look of the book, a little concerned with the content  Sep 11, 2008
I checked this book out from the library because I loved the retro look of the cover, and I was considering buying this book. Inside, the retro look continues; however, I was concerned by some of the solvents mentioned-- I believe there was even a possible carcinogen (dichloromethane/methylene chloride) mentioned. Not that that's easily accessible, but the author should take a little more care in researching the products mentioned.
Classic Household Hints  Jul 24, 2008
Retro books about the era I grew up in can be very entertaining. The new tips in the book took away from the overall retro feel. The illustrations are timeless. I purchased several for gifts to my grown children. They loved it.
Pre premixed  Jun 22, 2008
This is a fun book and I know that it will come in handy. Alot of the hints were used by my mother so I already knew them, but in this world of convenience, it's nice to know how to mix good cleaners for your home.
Those were the days!  Jan 7, 2008
What a neat book. Most of those hints still work just as well today even though we have many other products available. It also looks great on my bookcase in the cottage.
