Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wwlntsdoy, Ottebtr 10, THI IfTHBKIDGt HFKALO _ 21 The Homemaker By ELIZABETH BARTMAN Diitrlct Home Economist This is the time of year for a concerted effort in preparation for five months of winter. Preserving of garden vegeta- bles and fruits takes priority over all of them. Just be sure that you are not spending your energy on preserving imported food with a cost higher than what you can purchase already canned or frozen. Figure it out beforehand. Possibly your next priority is airing and washing household linens and whiter clothing. Our publication, "Guide to Home Laundry" may be useful. Or- der it from your extension of- fice. In ft you will find sugges- tions on how to launder blan- kets, pillows, remove oily stains from permanent fabrics. Mattress pads of quilted cot- ton can be laundered if well constructed of preshrunk mate- rial and closely quilted. Their quilting pattern will be accen- tuated slightly by laundering. If pads have spots, these should be removed before washing. Soak hi cool water to loosen blood, then wash in hot- test water. Usually perspira- tion stains show on the pads. It may not be possible to re- move these entirely, but they can be lightened considerably by soaking in a chlorine bleach solution made with one table- spoon bleach to each quart of cool water. The freshly washed pads may be soaked; then fol- lowed by several rinses to re- move chlorine. Shrinkage is common, due to the method of construction. When drying hi the automatic dryer, remove before entirely dry. If drying on the line, hang on parallel lines from the two ends. By two people stretch- ing it vigorously, the pad may be restored to its original size. Finish the drying by laying flat. Beautiful cotton quilts that are closely quilted may be laundered in a similar fashion, but only if the materials are strong and the quilting is done closely. Antique quilts may be too fragile to handle thus with- out breaking the quilts. Bright colors which are not colorfast may run or fade. If line-dried be certain to dry hi the shade to try to preserve the colors. It is not advisable to launder down comforters with taffeta or satin coverings. Stuffed toys can come out clean as new. Use only dry suds with a stiff brush when toys are plush. Tie the toy in a pillow case to protect beaded eyes and dry in a dryer. Cot- ton, or other washable fabric toys can go in a washer. Kneac starch solution into fabric be- fore drying. Put a few bath towels into the dryer with the toys, or hang on the clothes Ike to dry when the day is breezy. Draperies can be very tricky to wash. But if you'd like to perk them up, take them down and let air currents hi your dryer, or a breezy day, blow Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have never heard such stupid advice in my life as what you gave to the man with the overweight wife. You said maybe HE wanted a divorce and used her fat as an excuse to unload her. Did it ever occur to you that maybe SHE wanted an excuse to drive her hus- band away? I assure you that is closer to the truth. Any wife who thinks so little of her husband that she would continue to stuff herself like a pig deserves no sym- pathy. I have observed these horrors in the supermarket load- ing their carts with soft drinks, potato chips, ice cream, pies, cakes all the things they shouldn't have. A woman who will not give up the fun of eating rich food so she can took like a human instead of am elephant does not deserve husband's love. Imagine carrying candy in her purse, like a baby with' a pacifier. Disgusting! When I read that I blew up. And you come out with the absurd statement that some men love their wives in spite of their fat. How could they? Cruz DEAR SANTA: They could because they attach more im- portance to other things such as emotional support, intelli- gence, ability to communicate, dependability, devotion, and let's not forget a sense of humor and a cheerful disposition. DEAR ANN LANDERS: "Retired Husband In Modesto" might sound like a "Pussycat" to YOU, but I'll bet his wife has another name for ham. So he doesn't want to be a flunky or an errand boy. Did it ever occur to him that the only way his wife can get him out from under her feet is to send Mm someplace? I five in St. Petersburg, which is a haven for the re- tired, and we wives help each other survive by exchanging ideas on how to keep the old boy busy and out of our hair. The best plan is to give him specific responsibilities. For example: lawn or garden work, taking care of the car, vacuuming, waxing the floors, minor carpenter repairs, win- dow washing. Demeaning? Heavens no! It takes a big man to do little things and those "little" things can add up to a lot of help. Spread the word, Ann. In Time DEAR LEARNED: Consider it spread. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I have been married nine years. When we were going together he used to tell a few lies but since we've been married he's been a lot better at that sort of thing. Last week he called me "Rose" in his sleep. I thought was imagining things because it was sort of a mumble. Last night I heard him plain as day. "Move over, he said. This morning I asked what it was all about. He Rose is the nickname of a fellow he works with Rosenheim Is his real name. I have heard him talk about this guy before. Should I phone up the personnel director? Would it get back to him if I did? Please advise. Rose DEAR NO: Don't start poking around your husband's place of employment. Trust him. If he's playing artntnd you'll smell something sooner or later and it won't be a rose.
