Review Text

The girl who hated to cook has a lot more to say to the "random" house-keeper, which doesn't mean sweeping the debris under the rug. There's what to, and what not to, cover and clean- and when; there's a bride's alphabet (b for burns and h for hardboiled eggs); there's quite a bit about stains, spots and blots and their removal; about impromptu cooking; about chores- and where husbands and children can be recruited; about marketing economically without being mingy; about electricity (the fuse box) and equipment; about domestic Russian roulette (scrub out the oven) and other anti-depressants; and about clothes, make-up and diet..... The toujours gat approach should help to take most of the drabness out of housekeeping, and the illustrations by Hilary Knight will further entertain. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
