Rubbing Up For Christmas

Rubbing Up For Christmas.

Furniture should be dry polished. It is “elbow grease” that gives the glow to pieces that have been in the family for generations. Occasionally wipe over with a chamois dipped into vinegar and water (two tablespoons vinegar to one quart water).

Wipe piano keys with a soft cloth soaked in methylated spirits, and polish with a dry cloth, but be very careful not touch woodwork with methylated.

If a waxed floor or linoleum is due for a “real clean,” use turpentine, which dissolves the wax. The kitchen linoleum is probably not waxed; add a little paraffin to the water with which you wash it.
