"The Cleaning of Their Prettiest Things"

"The part of housework which most women like best is probably the cleaning of their prettiest things--silver, crystal, bric a brac, andirons. Handling these lovely pieces is really a thrill and renewing their fresh and glowing beauty through one's own efforts can be an added pleasure."

The Homemaker's Encyclopedia: Housekeeping Made Simple, 1952.
