Description:
Essential household tips from the Victorian era to the modern day - time-honoured, thrifty and environmentally-friendly domestic solutions still useful today

From cobweb brushers, carpet sweepers and awkward corners to the damp cloth versus the dry duster; how to get rid of water marks or heat rings on polished wood; the antibacterial qualities of simple vinegar, and using lemon rind to clear limescale: here are the methods, techniques and essential household knowledge that generations once took for granted.

Combining fascinating 'below-stairs' social history with startling facts and useful tips, Lucy Lethbridge here restores fast-disappearing skills to keep at bay dust, rust, limescale and mildew; laundry, hygiene, polishing and the endless dishes. Here, beautifully illustrated and entertainingly presented, are a bygone era's keys to a clean house.
