To clean your iron.

To get the black marks off the bottom of your iron, possibly burnt on Bondaweb.  Warm the iron, turn off and then rub with a paracetamol tablet.  Surprising, but it really works!!


 Back in 1949  ( advice from Mary Pickens in the Singer Sewing Book.)

-Prepare yourself mentally for sewing. Never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically.  

-Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes.

-While you sew make yourself as attractive as possible.  Put on a clean dress.

-Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick on. If you are ...... fearful your husband will come home and you will not look neatly put together, you will not enjoy your sewing.
