Dear Heloise: Due to severe back problems and restricted movement, I have come up with a way to polish my furniture (avoiding a lot of bending and pain), which I would like to share with your readers.
I went to a nursery and purchased a garden sit-upon wagon, which has wheels that move from left to right. Also, under the sitting area is storage space to place your furniture-cleaning supplies.
Now I can sit and polish my furniture and move along to the bedroom furniture and dining-room furniture and polish to my heart’s content without adding additional back pressure or pain. - Grace Harman, Morris Plains, N.J.
Dear Heloise: I roll fish in instant mashed potato mix. It is excellent! - Sharon Lay, Lake Worth, Fla.
