Readers demanded it, so here it is: a book of priceless hints in dictionary form for people who are so busy they don't even have time to look something up in an index.
Included are some new hints, some old favorites, and some new old hints--old favorites with a new twist. The wide array of topics includes removing stains from clothing, unstopping drains, fixing squeaky floors, and saving supermarket dollars. In addition, there are scores of hints on using and caring for the modern home's high-tech equipment, such as microwaves, home computers, VCR's and more.
There are also time- and money-saving checklists for avoiding allergens, saving energy, winterizing cars, running a garage sale, avoiding income tax mistakes, and selling a house. Not forgotten are shopping checklists, useful to any consumer, but especially helpful to inexperienced buyers who too often pay more for less.
This is the first household self-help book of Heloise's timeless wisdom to be presented in a convenient, easy-to-use dictionary format.

For generations, Heloise has been the name in household advice. Continuing in the tradition of her mother, the original Heloise, today's Heloise has become a media phenomenon. Along with her numerous television appearances and worldwide syndicated newspaper column, she has a monthly feature in Good Housekeeping, and her own website. Heloise is the author of several bestselling books.From Library Journal:
The eponymous Heloise has been dispensing household hints since the 1950s. The present Heloise is the original's daughter, and she has here compiled a "dictionary" of her helpful hints. From Abrasive Cleansers to Zucchini, Freezing, here are some 2000 useful tips for every day. The dictionary arrangement makes it easy to find help in any subject area, and there are useful cross references. Separate sections on stain removal, and on odors are appended. Heloise also includes amusing comments and anecdotes from her readers' letters. At this price, you'll want to buy an extra copy for the Reference desk. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 1/92.
