Carpets. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 April 1914

Oarpets. Carpets will materially prolong their days if a carpet felt or a felt paper be used under them. In country houses a thin bed of dry hay is often put under the carpet Instead of a felt. For stair carpets every one knows how pads on the edge of the stairs under the carpets increase durability ; these may be made of wool, or even of wadding, in covers of unbleached cotton. The pads should he almost as wide as the stair carpet, and about 5in. broad: they should go over the edge of the stair. Old stair-carpets can be cut into lengths for this purpose. and even several folds of thick brown paper will not answer badly.

Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 April 1914

Household Hints. Melted alum can be used for unititng metal to glase. Melt it in an iron spoon over the fire. lMix blacklead for stoves with turpen tine instead of water. The stove will look better, and also be easier to polish. Remove paint marks on wood with a paste made of equal parts of soda and lime, moistened with a little water. Spread thickly over the marks, and after twenty-four hours wash off. When a fire burns-dully, and seems in danger of going out altogether, throw a little powdered sugar or a few lamps on it. This will effectually make it burn up, and is absolutely safe, which cannot be said of the practice many people have of using kerosene or paraffin for this purpose. Wash coloured cotton articles in the following way, and you will find that the colours will not run, as they are so often liable to do when the articles are washed in the ordinary style, without any special care :--Take some boiling water, and in it dissolve some common salt, allowing about one teacupf...
