Archival Clothing’s bibles are many – the Arnys catalog, the old Hebden Cord catalogs, the Montgomery Ward catalogs from the 1940s. But for all matters domestic, Cheryl Mendelson’s Home Comforts comes, from us and others, Most Highly Recommended.
Mrs. Mendelson covers every imaginable topic of domestic interest. There is detailed advice for laundering anything, incredible glossaries of fabrics and flooring materials, instructions for folding for wrinkle-resistant storage, and 837 pages of so on.
Please see our earlier post on recommended housekeeping garb.
