A Homemaker's Manual

As a homemaker, vintage lover, and a crafter I love finding old books and magazines about homemaking. It's so fun to read about how everyday tasks were done before modern technology. They often have great ideas about how to mend, clean, and make nearly everything! So when I found this book, I was just so excited I had to share it with you!

Download "A Manual Of Home-making (1919)- Legally Free!

A Manual of Home-making by Martha Van Rensselaer and Flora Rose, with others. (1919)

In this 1808 page masterpiece you will find tips on building, cleaning, organizing and decorating a home; methods of washing, mending, and sewing clothing from scratch; ways to save money on food, how to provide adequate nutrition to your family, and basic cooking methods in all types of cookery- include egg cookery, pastry, family meals and more; ways to preserve food by drying, curing, and canning (and old-school refrigeration techniques involving ice!); and so much more. A really great book to learn essential life skills as well as to learn advanced sewing, cooking, and cleaning techniques. I really recommend it to any homemakers, aspiring homemakers, or people who just want a little help learning how to take their of their homes.
