OK. Maybe YOU’RE not dirty but your house is.
Your clothes are getting ratty.
You don’t know the meaning of pinch or poach.
And you didn’t realize any of these horrors until you read Heather Solos’s book, Home-Ec 101: Skills for Everyday Living–titled after her wildly popular website.
Well now you think you shouldn’t read Heather’s book because you think it’s going to make you feel guilty but you’re wrong.
Wrong, I tell you!
Home-Ec 101 pushes all of your housekeeping shortcomings and failures in your face and then it picks you up, wipes the floor grit from your tear stained face and shows you how to fix it all.
The book is divided up into four different sections: Clean It, Wash It, Fix It, Cook It. In case you get lost in the sea of awesome, there’s a handy dandy Index
A sampling of useful things you should already know but either no one ever taught you or you’ve willfully forgotten:
- Can’t seem to get into the swing of things when it comes to a cleaning schedule?
- How the heck do you care for a butcher’s block and/or wooden cutting board?
- Want to get REALLY, REALLY grossed out about dust mites?
- Treatments for common stains?
- Washing instruction for different types of fabrics?
- Life span of major appliances?
- Need help unclogging lots of different pipes/drains?
- Need easy starter tips for horrible/new cooks?
- Don’t know how to read a recipe and/or have no clue what the heck a recipe is?
Chapter Eighteen which starts on pg 182.
- Help with coordinating cooking times?
- Need help preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse? [I kid you not.]
- Meal planning is Chapter Twenty.
- Substitutions is Chapter Twenty-One.
