'Country Living Household Wisdom' is a treasure trove of the best of traditional skills that still have a relevance for the homemakers of today. Our homes have always had a great influence on our wellbeing and, at a time when many of us lead fast-paced and stressful lives, it is particularly important to live in a calm, ordered environment that provides peace and tranquillity without making demands on our time with lengthy housework routines.

In this book you will find tips on how to get the most out of labour-saving machines and modern cleaning products, combined with tried and tested, old-fashioned remedies and recipes that are as effective now as they were a century ago. There are instant tricks to prevent windows steaming up, for making cut flowers last longer and for removing stains from fabrics and carpets. There is practical advice on caring for floors and furniture, cleaning the bathroom, storing china and glass, and managing open fires. Quick recipes are given for making jams and jellies, fruit cordials, remedies for coughs and colds, and facial cleansers and moisturisers.

Each area of domestic routine is covered comprehensively, with handy shortcuts to achieving instant order and atmosphere in the midst of chaos. 'Country Living Household Wisdom' is a book for real people who lead busy lives with advice that is clear, easy to follow and achievable by everyone.
