9780857832290: Forgotten Ways for Modern Days: Kitchen cures and household lore for a natural home and garden Foreward by Dottie Angel

Forgotten Ways for Modern Days draws on the wisdom of the homemakers, gardeners, crafters and kitchen alchemists of the past who kept homes clean, gardens in order and hands busy using natural products and items found close to hand, either around the house or in the garden. Ingredients from kitchen cupboards, picked from the veg patch or foraged from hedgerows were used to clean clothes, cure a chesty cough and freshen the skin, whilst scraps of fabric were recycled in endless useful ways. With sections on Cleaning, Laundry, The Kitchen, In the Garden, Natural Health, and Beauty, Forgotten Ways for Modern Days brings this knowledge up to date and shares with the reader clever tips that make as much sense today, such as how to brighten your whites by putting eggshells in your wash. as well as an array of handy projects, including how to make Re-usable Beeswax Food Wrap, a Honey and Lemon Throat Soother and a Bits and Bobs Eiderdown.

About the Author:

Rachelle Blondel (of ted & agnes) lives in Yorkshire, where she creates 'handmade accessories and vintage whatnot'. Her passion for sewing, painting and faffing has filled her house, two barns and a caravan with untold treasure.

Review:

'Forgotten Ways for Modern Days is the book your grandmother wished she'd written. A beautifully presented homemaker's bible, this little book is a goldmine of great ideas for looking after your home [...] Each page will teach you something you didn't know before [...] this book is a fantastic read that you'll want to devour in one sitting and keep referring back to.' --Making magazine 'The author of Granny Chic returns to draw on the wisdom of the homemakers, gardeners, crafters and kitchen alchemists of the past who used natural, low-cost remedies and solutions for cleaning and caring for the home. I was particularly impressed by the list of uses for eggshells.' --The Bookseller 'Offering 'kitchen cures and household lore for a natural home and garden', this book includes many useful tips, designed to appeal to those 'on the path to finding a slower and simpler way of living." --The Good Book Guide
