One of the most popular features of the UK's Country Life magazine is the Mrs. Danvers column. Readers write to ask her about problems on everything from what to do with leftover beef to repairing glass. With its practical and often unusual questions and answers, the column provides readers with entertaining and always useful information.
Now, all of this information has been gathered into a book that will prove an essential reference work for all homeowners. Topics discussed include: How to you prevent salt from becoming damp? How do you get rid of spiders from an attic? How do you reenamel a bath? What is the best gin cocktail? And of course, just how do you remove red wine from a carpet?
