Bright Tips 1984

Hot Feet - Feet hot and tired?
Dissolve a teaspoonful alum in a cupful of hot water. Wash and dry feet then sponge with alum water and allow to dry in, this gives great relief. - Mrs Murray.

Save Fuel - Put butter beans in a vacuum flask of boiling water and leave overnight. Next day they are almost cooked and just need heating up. - Mrs Parker.

Dried Celery - So your family don't like eating the leafy tops of celery sticks? Keep them until you have used the oven and as the temperature cools, dry out the leaves on a baking sheet. Keep them in a screw-jar and use them to flavour soups and stews. - Mrs Trimble.
