We previously learned about "The Beauty of Housework". Only a year later (and a year and 4 months later on this blog), "Take it Easy Cleaning House" was published. Printed by the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture and Home Economics (I'm glad the U. S. Department of Agriculture cooperated), it details the best methods for cleaning your house. If it were an internet ad today, it would say "The way you've been cleaning your house is all wrong!"
The woman on the cover appears to be giving herself a homemade facelift by pulling her hair back.
The purpose of the Smith-Lever Acts seems a little foggy to me. "An Act to provide for cooperative agricultural extension work between the agricultural colleges in the several States..." Maybe it made sense in 1914.
The illustrations look like it was done by a high school art student. Lots of odd proportions and poor perspective. Maybe the Smith-Lever act should have thrown a little money toward their art department.
If I took a break and laid down like that after cleaning house, I'd be out in 2 minutes.
"Whistle while you work -- it helps." Especially if you use that creepy "Negan whistle" from "The Walking Dead". It also helps if you keep referring to your vacuum cleaner as "Lucille". Your family will definitely get up and help you.
"Poison soap tools?!" What nefarious deeds is this woman planning?!
Wait... I can get someone from the county to come clean your house as a "demonstration"? Smith-Lever act, I love you.
