This 128 page paper cover book was published in 1952 by the Mahoning National Bank in Ohio and used as a giveaway to advertise the services of the bank and local advertisers who paid to be featured in the book. The book is a paperback and measures 5 1/2 by 8 inches. There are a few pages that have small corner folds...possibly to mark the place where a particularly useful tip is located.
The book has all manner of hints from stain removal to walls and wallpaper to typewriters to financial tips.
Tip #556 says to put a small pail of water in a freshly painted room and the paint odor will clear sooner.
Tip #374 those pea pods that you normally throw away will add flavor to soup.
Tip #900 to put a quick end to ants that are invading your home or garden, find the ant hill and pour a kettle of boiling water into it.
Tip #667 When you crack a favorite dish or plate, put it into a pan of milk and boil it for 45 minutes. Not only will the crack usually disappear, the dish will actually become stronger.
This is a fun book with some interesting tips...some of which are very dated but could still be used today if needed and all are useful if you want to live a more eco-friendly life.
