Aug 22nd 2010 4:17PM Here are some other tips from my mom & grandmom. Vinegar has disinfectant qualities and repels dust. Makes a floor shine and can cool a sunburn (if you can stand the smell). It makes a dandy "softner" or soap remover in laundry, especially if you are going to hang your laundry on the line outside. We always used dishcloths and rags for cleaning especially really soft old undershirts and diapers. Yeah, I know hardly anybody uses cloth diapers anymore, but they are great for absorbing spills. Maybe we will all be admiring the wisdom of those depression era homemakers who made do with it, used up and wore it out.
Aug 20th 2010 3:01PM Dude - far out. Somebody as old as me who still remembers what we wore. I was always bummed because my high arches wouldn't allow me to wear the low cut saddle oxfords like Annette wore. Now I just wish I could find a pair of shoes that I can walk in without pain.
Aug 20th 2010 2:35PM When I was young, these pants were called "pegged" or "pegs" when worn by males. The girls version were "capri pants". I never heard the term cigarette pants when I was wearing them. Yes, the original capri pants went all the way to the ankle. Out here in the West, we did not tuck our pants into our boots, cause that was like a "dude" from back east. Oh well, the more things change, the more they remain the same.
