Sour Milk Will Ruin
Your Kitchen Sink
It you spill sour milk on the
kitchen sink, wipe it up promptly.
Sour milk, fruit juices, vegetable and
other acids will ruin enamel or por
celain unless promptly removed."
This is one of many helpful hints
for housewives in United States
Housing Authority low-rent public
housing projects contained in "ten
ant handbooks" distributed by local
housing authorities. The booklets
are designed to make housekeeping
easier and to reduce maintenance ex
pense. One issued by the Memphis
(Tenn.) Housing Authority to ten
ants of its "Lauderdale Courts" proj
ect is typical.
Amplifying the admonition on
care of sinks and drainboards. this
manual warns: "The porcelain of the
sink and drainboard will not stand
heavy blows from cooking utensils
or other objects, and is easily ruin
ed by hot skillets or by scraping
utensils over it."
Advice is given also on the care of
floors, painted surfaces, plumbing
fixtures, etc., and on proper use of
refrigerators and ranges.
