Welcome to Home Hints, our new weekly feature which highlights useful, and sometimes not so useful, tips, remedies and handy hints. Please remember they are taken from bygone times and not to be tried at home!
This week’s hint is a remedy for those unfortunate enough to have swallowed a wasp. It’s taken from Home Hints for the Modern Housewife, published in London by Featherstone Press Ltd in the 1940s. This book is part of our Home Studies Collection which contains over 700 historical cookery and household management books from the last 300 years.
