When old clothes, like worn-out aprons or waists or
linings come to hand, and are absolutely good for nothing else, cut them

into small pieces, say eight or twelve inches square, some larger, and put

them into a bag or box easily accessible. Then when something is spilled

over on stove or floor, or mess of any kind is made, use these bits for

cleaning up and drop them into the fire.
