Another paucity of posts, this time caused by an influx of guests. Most of them were expected, but there was one set of surprise visitors. Every woman’s magazine has tips on how to tidy your house in fifteen minutes, and I was prepared. I had tucked away a packet of “Furniture Polish Wipes”, which I unzipped and flourished with gay abandon. At one point my curiosity got the better of me and I read the “instructions”.

  • When wipe is soiled, throw in trash. OK.
  • Do not use on untreated unfinished wood. Makes sense.
  • Do not use on floors as they may become slippery. I found that out the hard way.
  • Not for personal hygiene.
Heavens to Betsey.
