Some advice can certainly be passed through the ages as evidenced on page 56 in the copy of a 1910 Old Farmer's Almanac I found at a yard sale. Who could argue with the timeless wisdom that states "In running freshly laundered curtains on the rods put a thimble on the end of the rod and it will slip through more easily?" Some of the time-saving tidbits may be a bit dated, though. "A silk petticoat hung upside down in the closet, from hangers sewed inside the bottom ruffle, will retain its freshness much longer; the ruffle will stand out and the skirt will wear better," might be a good example of that, but who knows? After all, everything old becomes new again.
As always, thanks for stopping by and take care - and remember: "Soak raisins in cold water before stoning."
