Overview

For over thirty years Heloise's column "Hints from Heloise" has been an American institution, read by millions daily. In All-New Hints from Heloise, her first new household-hints book in almost a decade, Heloise has created an indispensable home reference guide that focuses specifically on today's changing life-styles. The operative word today is convenience—getting what has to be done accomplished in the limited time available.

You will still find an abundance of the time-tested household hints from Heloise so many have come to expect, from removing spots and stains to caring for household plants and fixing squeaky floors. In addition, you will also find scores of hints on using and maintaining household appliances that simply didn't exist in most homes a decade ago. Organized by subject, and cross-referenced with a comprehensive index, All-New Hints from Heloise provides up-to-date advice on everything from home care inside and outside to travel, entertainment, children, pets, and more.

This is the first household self-help book to take readers beyond the traditional concerns of the past and help prepare them to overcome the hurdles of the '90s.

Syndicated to over 500 newspapers internationally, "Hints from Heloise" has become an American institution, read by millions daily. Here, readers will find scores of new hints plus tips on using and caring for new high-tech equipment such as microwave ovens, telephone answering machines, home computers, VCRs, CD players, and more.
