Iowa State University Extension Answer Line provides information and resources to help Iowa consumers make decisions that improve your lives. As part of the College of Human Sciences at ISU, we take the work that is done on campus and brings it to all Iowans, as well as working with many other organizations and agencies to meet your needs.

Professional consumer and family scientists answer questions about care of the elderly, child care & development, buying decisions, cleaning, connecting families with their communities, consumer management, family money management, finding community resources, food preparation, food preservation, food safety, home environment, housing, household equipment, nutrition, parenting, textiles and laundry.
