about

Joan Wilen and Lydia Wilen (Chicken Soup & Other Folk Remedies) return with Shoes in the Freezer, Beer in the Flower Bed: And Other Down-Home Tips for House and Garden, a compendium of old-fashioned (and some new-fangled) solutions for cleaning and caring for the house and garden, kids and pets. From the eminently practical (Can't get the slipcover back on the sofa cushion? Wrap the cushion in a dry-cleaning bag and the cover will slip on easily) to the eye-raising (try hemming jeans with duct tape), the Wilens range from general household maintenance to laundering and sewing, food, kid stuff and gardening. A bonus is the collection of "Folk Beliefs," e.g., if the thread wraps itself around the needle while you are sewing, expect good health and good luck.
