Household hints

Vase......... no spare one ..... cut off a 2 litre plastic pop bottle to length
you need fill with water place carefully not to tip over.

Chewing gum ... ...place the garment in the fridge to harden or place a
plastic bag with ice cubes. The gum can then be cracked and picked off,

Cigarette burns ........ try rubbing with fine steel wool followed by linseed
oil ........Alcohol is also effective,

Wine and spirit marks......... remove at once ...light marks may be removed
with cigarette ash or linseed oil then polish,

Scatches and dents....... if small these can be disguised with iodine,
shoe polish, or a commercial "scratch cover" polish regular, dents may
come out if you carefully use a warm iron over a damp cloth on them
