The Traditional Household Handbook - Alex Goffey
Forget about expensive branded products for cleaning, cooking, health and beauty.
You can create your own traditional, 'old-fashioned' remedies and solutions using
simple and safe ingredients from around the home and all for just pennies.
My grandma kept her home spotless,
her cooking couldn't be beaten and even in her 80s her complexion was that of someone 30 years younger. Grandad had
the best garden for miles around, he was able to fix just about anything with bits and bobs from the garage and they both lived well into their 90s with hardly
an illness to their name.
In those days, they didn't have all the
over-the-counter medicines, branded
cleaning products, readymade
convenience meals, DIY and garden centres that we have today. Everything was done the traditional simple way using tips and tricks that had been passed down the generations. In the
'disposable age' we now live in,
many of these tips and tricks have been lost, so that's why I've spent the last four years searching for the very best traditional household tips and have now
compiled them in one large easy to follow compendium. Here are just a few of the amazing tips revealed in The Traditional Household Handbook.
