I was thinking about 'the old ways' of doing things - as I thought about making some curd cheese, since my favourite maker has stopped producing it. Putting whites out on bushes and the grass to bleach them Always hanging clothes on a line to dry (I still do!) Honey on any sore bit to make it better Hot toddy if you were feeling unwell - then off to bed (from childhood!) Syrup of figs for constipation. Dock leaves for use if you got caught short whist out for a long walk! Dock sap if you got stung by nettles Just some I remember. Any you remember, which might just have worked?
