She's been writing for years but this is a nice book some are just common sense things others were new "green "ways. Answers all those funky question s and more without going to the computer. A real keeper

I've been a Heloise fan for years and have owned other books of her hints. I bought this one because I wanted to update my information to the 21st century. I enjoy the down-to-earth way she presents information and how she includes her readers' ideas into the work. It's a great book for anyone looking for easier ways to take care of the household.

This book has proved useful from the day I got it. We were pulling out some of our camping gear and I used the book to find the best way to clean off corroded battery terminals in a lantern. I would reccomend this.

I bought this online for my mom. She wanted this book because she loved reading hints from Heloise in their local newspaper. She was thrilled to get the book and I got it for a good price and the transaction with seller went as expected.

I love Hints from Heloise. There are always hints that I use and will continue to use. I recommend for anyone who wants to save a buck on cleaners and ways to cut through and get things done quicker and better.

I am always looking for more effective ways of doing things and Heloise seldom fails me. There are some really clever folks out there who contribute their genius to the famous Hints, and I'm glad Heloise collects and passes them along. Keep lighting the way, Heloise!
