Latest Inventions for the Household

WASHING MACHINE CHARGES BATTERY
Gasoline-powered washing machines, used on farms and estates not served by power lines, now can be fitted with a small generator unit to charge storage batteries for tractors, automobiles, or radios. Mounted on the platform with the engine, the generator is hooked up to the pulley by means of a drive belt

BOTTLE OPENER HAS SEALING CAP
To preserve the freshness of beverages after the bottles are opened, a new cap lifter contains a rubber sealing plug which can be clamped over the bottle lip. It gives an air-tight seal on all standard necks, and cannot be blown off easily

DOOR MAT USES ROTARY BRUSHES
Looking like a carpet sweeper turned upside down, the door mat pictured below is fitted with a dozen rotary brushes set in recesses. Turned by scraping the feet, they are said to make an unusually good job of removing mud from the shoes

BRIDGE SCORE IN HANDY ROLL
Clipped to the edge of a bridge table, the attachment shown above holds score sheets for 200 rubbers in a continuous roll. It keeps playing surface clear and score always handy

ADJUSTABLE CLOSET ROD. Suspended from garment hooks on the opposite walls of a closet, the telescoping rod illustrated above furnishes a highly adaptable support for clothes hangers. It cannot slip off the hooks

SPOON GRIPS FOOD
When the spring handle of this serving spoon is squeezed, the tonglike frame opens. Released, it grips the food and keeps it from slipping

STRETCHER FOR DOILIES. The difficulty of laundering doilies without spoiling their shape is met by this stretcher. An entire set of the same size and shape can be done at once

TRANSPARENT COVERS FOR STACKS OF PLATES
Dust cannot soil stacked plates when they are protected by these handy covers. Made of a transparent material reenforced by a coarse fabric mesh, they are bound in colored tape to match china patterns. The covers are available in seven sizes, of various diameters and heights

FOUR-IN-ONE KITCHENCUTTER
Shredding, slicing, grating, and mincing can all be done on a single kitchen cutting device recently marketed. Various blade arrangements are used in different ways to accomplish the many kinds of cutting possible. The makers claim that this one compact tool, conveniently handled and stored, will do the work of many cutting accessories

CARRYING HANDLE FOR MILK BOTTLES
For use in carrying milk bottles home from dairies or grocery stores, a metal carrier locks around the bottle neck and provides a wire bail for the fingers. It is shown above being attached to a bottle and, at right, in use

FOLDING CLOTHES DRYER
An indoor clothes dryer that can be folded up like an umbrella is a new convenience for the housewife. It can be set up in a moment in the kitchen, before a radiator, or in the bathtub for dripping

FISH BOWL IN BASE OF LAMP
Something new in aquariums is a novel table lamp which has a bowl for tropical fish as its base. An auxiliary bulb in the upper part of the base keeps the water at the proper temperature for the fish. The shade is appropriately decorated with tropical scenes to set off the unusual ornament
