Get Hints for Household Problems from Heloise

Dog smell on the sofa? Dusty plasma screen on the smart phone? A strange growing blemish on the taffeta? (And what exactly is taffeta, anyway?)

Send in your questions, and Heloise, the maven of household hints, might be able to answer them when she appears at The Mark Twain House & Museum this Thursday, June 27.

Tickets are still available for "Hints from Heloise," presented by The Friends of The Mark Twain House & Museum. The event begins at 7 pm and will conclude with a dessert reception, book sale, and booksigning. Tickets are $40 for the general public and $35 for Mark Twain House & Museum members. Call 860-280-3130.

Following in the footsteps of her mother, the original "Hints" provider, Heloise has dished out sage advice ranging from how to remove stains to how to jump out of planes.  Her books include "Household Hints for Singles," "Heloise from A to Z" and "In the Kitchen with Heloise." Her new book, "Handy Household Hints from Heloise," will be released in trade paperback on Aug. 31.
 
Heloise will be introduced by Brini Maxwell, whose show on the Style Network makes kitsch feel classy through her personal flair for home design and entertaining.
