Summary
From cobweb brushes, carpet sweepers and awkward corners to the damp cloth versus the dry duster; how to get rid of water marks or heat rings on polished wood; the antibacterial qualities of simple vinegar, and using lemon juice to clear limescale: here are the methods, techniques and essential household-knowledge that generations once took for granted. Combing fascinating 'below-stairs' social history with startling facts and useful tips, Lucy Lethbridge here restores fast-disappearing skills to keep at bay dust, rust, limescale and mildew; laundry, hygiene, polishing and the endless dishes. Here, beautifully illustrated and entertainingly presented, are a bygone era's keys to a clean house
