346. Hints for the Housewife

Every housewife should have plenty of waxed
paper or paraffin paper about the house. It is of the greatest value in

preserving eatables from the air and keeping them properly moist. In the

sandwich basket it is indispensable. Cake wrapped in it will keep moist

and fresh for a much longer time than if put directly into the box. When

the paper has become sticky run cold water on it, and it may be used

again. Cheese wrapped up in it and put in the refrigerator will keep fresh

for a week.
