Today's household is busier and more diverse than ever before. The days of Grandma standing at the hearth, lovingly stirring the soup cauldron while dispensing wisdom, are long gone. Often, we don't have access to mum's advice on stain-removal, or Auntie's food storage tips. Grandpa's never-fail cure for an ant invasion is lost in the mists of time. But things still go wrong around the house and we need to know what to do. How do you get candle wax out of a tablecloth? What's a safe way to get rid of cockroaches? What can be done about a musty smell in a holiday house? How can you cook cabbage without that smell? This guide contains easy hints and tips to address hundreds of household problems. Common sense, family traditions and cheap, simple solutions form the basis of this book. Where possible, we prefer natural green responses to problems. Most pantries contain the ingredients to address a multitude of emergencies and with a minimum of forethought, every household can have on hand all that is needed. The Little Book of Household Hints will tell you how. Ideal for students, house-sharers, newly-weds and all those who find themselves having to solve day-to-day problems around the kitchen and laundry - indeed, anywhere around the house! Hundreds of household tips on cleaning, food storage, holiday preparation, plants and flowers, stain removal, pest deterrents, handyman ideas and more!

Tony Holkham's books range from business writing and private writing tuition to consumer advice; from the countryside to spring-cleaning; from World War 1 to fiction, verse and real-life drama. Something for everyone! A book about spring-cleaning? Certainly. In the early 20th century, and before, it was common for householders to compile notebooks of household hints and tips. These would have been obtained from newspapers, magazine, product labels or passed down by word of mouth. This little book is typical of the period, and fascinating in its contents. Many of the entries are recognisable, but many ingredients mentioned are no longer obtainable - and in some cases, quite rightly so. The author Tony Holkham is related to the original writer of the book, though he is not quite sure how! All he knows is that it is a book worth sharing; many such household compendia will have been assigned to the bin, especially with the arrival of the all-knowing internet and the extinction of the phenomenon known as "spring-cleaning." The Briggs Book gives a little insight into the lives of ordinary people around 100 years ago: how hard they must have worked in the home, and how difficult it was to obtain information to solve a variety of problems, many of which are still irritations today.

Culinary Landmarks is a definitive history and bibliography of Canadian cookbooks from the beginning, when La cuisinière bourgeoise was published in Quebec City in 1825, to the mid-twentieth century. Over the course of more than ten years Elizabeth Driver researched every cookbook published within the borders of present-day Canada, whether a locally authored text or a Canadian edition of a foreign work. Every type of recipe collection is included, from trade publishers' bestsellers and advertising cookbooks, to home economics textbooks and fund-raisers from church women's groups. The entries for over 2,200 individual titles are arranged chronologically by their province or territory of publication, revealing cooking and dining customs in each part of the country over 125 years. Full bibliographical descriptions of first and subsequent editions are augmented by author biographies and corporate histories of the food producers and kitchen-equipment manufacturers, who often published the books. Driver's excellent general introduction sets out the evolution of the cookbook genre in Canada, while brief introductions for each province identify regional differences in developments and trends. Four indexes and a 'Chronology of Canadian Cookbook History' provide other points of access to the wealth of material in this impressive reference book.
