- Program Number
- Series Description
WGBH program (C. 1971) hosted by Thalassa Cruso on fix-it projects around the house - how to mend household items, remove stains. Series release date: 1971
- Program Description
Thalassa Cruso demonstrates precautions for leaving the house for a vacation. A makeshift cedar chest for storing woolens is made from an old footlocker, and ordinary closet is converted to a moth proof tomb. Thalassa suggests the best method for cleaning woolen rugs is a brief dragging through the newly fallen snow. A mouse trap is baited with peanut butter rather than cheese and moth balls are suggested to rid the attic of squirrels. House plants are packed in plastic bags so they need not be watered and various inexpensive burglar systems are demonstrated.
