Odds and Ends

A Hint from Caramel, Ind.

This housewife saves all waxed papers from bread, and she has discovered an easy way to remove the wrappers.  She holds the loaf about eight inches above a flame, so that the wrapper unfolds easily and quickly without tearing.  She uses these wrappers for keeping cakes and sandwiches fresh.  Also for covering food in the refrigerator.

Lemon Leaves

Plant the lemon seeds and treat them as house plants.  They grow into pretty shrubs, whose leaves may be used for flavoring.  A few leaves tied in a cloth and put into applesauce for a few minutes gives a delightful flavor.  One or two placed in the bottom of the pan before pouring in the loaf cake batter will give a delicate flavor to the cake.

To Wash Wicker Furniture

Wicker furniture should be washed with a strong solution of salt water and placed in the sun to dry quickly.  Furniture that needs a new coat of paint may sometimes be made to last without quite a while longer if treated to a salt bath.  Washed with hot soap and water wickerwork turns yellow.

*I type these as they are printed.  Sometimes the language isn’t translated the best.  Other times there is spelling errors which I correct.
