Stains of Our Lives



To the editors:

Thank you for giving us Nina Sandlin on saddle soap [Our Town, April 24]. Household cleaning gets short shrift in most journals. Chicagoans have had little to cheer about lately; what a relief to know that one can dare each day without fear for one's midwales.

A thinking person's Heloise deserves a series, perhaps even a column. A stains correspondent must develop a relationship with her readers--the frankness that good journalism requires would lead eventually to awkwardness if the only stains she had to discuss were her own--but I sense that there are lots of people out there eager to share what they've learned where Fabric meets Life.
