Every housewife should have plenty of waxed
paper or paraffin paper about the house. It is of the greatest value in
preserving eatables from the air and keeping them properly moist. In the
sandwich basket it is indispensable. Cake wrapped in it will keep moist
and fresh for a much longer time than if put directly into the box. When
the paper has become sticky run cold water on it, and it may be used
again. Cheese wrapped up in it and put in the refrigerator will keep fresh
for a week.
