Everyday survival guide

NEW
Also available in: Afrikaans

All the everyday things your parents never had the time to teach you and no other book has ever covered in one volume.

There are survival guides for everything from bushwhacking to getting through your menopause, but there’s nothing that tells you how to cope with everyday life and everyday things. What do you do if you’re suddenly faced with a load of washing and you don’t want the whites turning a lighter shade of pale, or want a soft-boiled egg just like Mom used to make them, or have to move home on the smallest of budgets so it has to be a DIY affair, or have to change the wheel in the middle of nowhere with no help in sight?

This book tells you everything you ever need to know to make it on your own – from finding the perfect pot for your kitchen to making the best omelette ever to dealing with a cold sore and fitting a new plug to your kettle after fixing yourself the perfect Martini. It’s all here, all based on practical experience – all the everyday things your parents never had the time to teach you and no other book has ever covered in one volume. It includes the basics on car maintenance; electricity and appliances; finances; kitchen, cooking and braais; plants and gardening; home maintenance; entertainment and etiquette; self-medication and first aid; personal safety; and moving home.

The Everyday Survival Guide includes the basics on car maintenance; electricity and appliances; finances; kitchen, cooking and braais; plants and gardening; home maintenance; entertainment and etiquette; self-medication and first aid; personal safety; and moving home. It will be an entertaining and informative read for every person in every walk of life, male or female, young or old.
