Overview

Joan Wilen and Lydia Wilen (Chicken Soup & Other Folk Remedies) return with Shoes in the Freezer, Beer in the Flower Bed: And Other Down-Home Tips for House and Garden, a compendium of old-fashioned (and some new-fangled) solutions for cleaning and caring for the house and garden, kids and pets. From the eminently practical (Can't get the slipcover back on the sofa cushion? Wrap the cushion in a dry-cleaning bag and the cover will slip on easily) to the eye-raising (try hemming jeans with duct tape), the Wilens range from general household maintenance to laundering and sewing, food, kid stuff and gardening. A bonus is the collection of "Folk Beliefs," e.g., if the thread wraps itself around the needle while you are sewing, expect good health and good luck.

From the authors of the bestselling Chicken Soup & Other Folk Remedies comes this collection of quick cleanups and down-home fix-ups that will have everything ship-shape in no time.
