Home-Ec 101: Skills for Everyday Living – Cook it, Clean it, Fix it, Wash it by Heather Solos


Real Skills for Real Life

From keeping your home clean and in good repair to preparing your own food, self-sufficiency rocks. Having an understanding of the domestic arts gives you a sense of control over your life. These skills also help you save money, not by chasing deals, but by teaching the principle of the mantra: Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. Life skills are the essence of frugality. Whether you just moved out of your parent's basement or you cut the apron strings a while ago, you'll learn the skills you need to manage your household.

Inside you?ll find:

  • Quick, easy cleaning solutions for every room of the house, so you can get the job done and get on with life
  • Instructions for removing stubborn stains and offensive odors from fabric
  • Simple fixes to wardrobe malfunctions including broken zippers, missing buttons, and fallen hemlines
  • Troubleshooting advice for common problems with home appliances
  • A minimum home maintenance guide to prevent or catch major repair problems
  • A basic plumbing tutorial that includes clearing and preventing clogs, stopping a running toilet and retrieving items dropped down a drain
  • Ideas for healthy and fast meal planning so you can start cooking and stop relying on takeout or preservative-packed convenience food
  • Definitions of common cooking terms and techniques found in recipes
  • Plans for stocking a pantry so you can make dinner (even if you haven't been grocery shopping in a week) and be prepared when disaster strikes
  • A complete rundown of essential kitchen equipment from knives to pans to small appliances

Equip yourself with the skills you need for everyday life.
