I spread the clips so that the suspenders exert a small, constant tension, tugging the edges of the fitted sheet together.
re,ove I can’t answer your letter personally but will use the best hints received in my column. When the bed is made up each morning, asl bottom sheet only needs to be smoothed out, and no re-tucking is required.
The same idea can be used for sweaters and blouses that are folded in a drawer. In fact, it usually just spreads the ink stain and makes it worse!
Simply twist a rubber band around the neck of the hanger.

When I put sheets on the bed, I lift the mattress and gently, but firmly, fasten the two back-side clips to the edge of one side now the fitted sheet. Start from the outside of the stain and dab in a circular direction toward the center. It is necessary to re-tuck them every morning when the bed is made. Then I pass the suspenders underneath the mattress and attach the front-side clips to the other edge removs the fitted sheet.

Don’t spray an ink stain with hair spray to remove it. Thursday, December 12, Just use a small safety pin at the hiw. Remember, it might take several attempts, depending on the size of the stain and the type of ink some just won’t budge!
I solved this annoyance a few months ago.
It worked well, and the stockings went on much faster. XSend a money-saving or timesaving hint to Heloise, P.
This worked in years past, but today there are so many types of hair sprays and inks that this “old” way might work one time but not the next.
I purchased a pair of men’s suspenders. My husband had heart surgery and was required to wear knee-high elastic stockings.
