53. For Tufted Furniture

For tufted furniture use a bicycle pump to
remove dust. Garments to be stored for the summer months should first be

aired well on a bright breezy day. Brush thoroughly and shake free of

dust. Do not leave clothing out in the air after three o'clock in the

afternoon, as from that time until dark all sorts of insects are seeking

their beds. A trunk or box that has been thoroughly cleaned and sunned and

then lined with fresh newspapers will prove an ideal place in which to

store winter clothing. Sprinkle each layer with cloves and tuck newspapers

well around them, moths detest printer's ink.
