It's hard to believe, but Christmas has come and gone, says Mary Ellen Haynes, County Agent-Home Econo- mics; and it's already time to take down the tree and put the decorations away until next year. You should clean all your decorations before storing so they'll be pretty again next year. Launder all washables, such as tablecloths, a sheet used as a tree skirt or Christmas stockings. Clean washable ornaments and decorations with a sudsy sponge. Then wipe with a clean damp cloth. Lights should be wiped clean, too. But, be sure to disconnect all electrical wires before wash- ing. Use strong boxes with partitions for storing. And label each carton clearly with what's inside so you'll be able to find everything easily next year.
