In a day when we are more and more going green, this book is a Godsend! There is all sorts of great tips and hints for maintaining a clean home the way our grandparents did. There is plenty of examples of amusing ways things were done "back in the day". The nostalgic artwork is lovely too, only wish some of it were larger. I love this book! Another Susan Wagonner gem!

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.

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.

I checked this book out from the library. I collect household hints books and thought this looked like fun. I liked it so well, I bought my own copy. The illustrations are wonderful. The hints are pretty much what I already knew but are presented in words and pictures of my youth.

If you need help with your chores, please do think about buying this and putting it on your resource library shelf. It has many helpful hints presented in a colorful setting.

Thanks.

I bought this book because my mom wasn't exactly a housewife and there are so many tips and tricks that I never had the chance to learn. I love this book. It's functional and super cute! Full of neat tricks to make life easier and alternative ways to clean without using heavy chemicals. I love the illustrations and the vintage feel. I will probably be purchasing this for bridal shower or housewarming gifts for my lady friends.

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.
