"The phrase "home ec" recalls fusty visions of baking and sewing classes, but this illustrated guide showcases the movement's true foundations: applying scientific methods to domestic work. Compiled from a wide range of vintage sources, Home Economics is chock-full of thrifty tips, time-tested advice, informative charts, and tasty recipes that gently teach the art and science of housekeeping. Inside is a wealth of information on health and hygiene, shopping and cookery, furnishings and decor, cleaning and safety, and so much more.

Old-fashioned, yes. But outdated? Never! This is real home economics that everyone will be proud to know."


The perfect addition to my vintage housekeeping bookself methinks...
