  1. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving
    I just saw a Youtube video that mentioned a question of safety for pressure canning on a glass stovetop. The lady said she'd never experienced a problem, but it put a worry in my head. Is it safe or not to can on my glasstop stove? We're not happy with this oven, but the cooktop has not been an...
  2. General Chat
    I was just sitting here at my desk at work. Next to me is a plain tall glass that I recently finished drinking a lukewarm ice tea drink from. It was empty. I heard a *ping* and I noticed a crack around the bottom of it, just above the base. I picked it up and the bottom came off. Never had that...

  4. Gifts In A Jar
    Hi all.. I buy the small candles at Walmart that are only a dollar but they come in these really nice jars that are clear glass complete with a tight fitting lid, the kind that has the dome top and a plastic gasket to fit snugly into the jar. They are kind of small, (votive candle size) can't...

  7. Question and Answer
    I have a family of 7 and 5 of those are kids. 13, 11, 3,2 and 1. I love paper plates, but I'm trying to figure out how to decide between paper or glass plates. I cook 2 times a day and feed the 3 little ones 5 times a day at the table. If I use glass dishes, it really adds up to a lot of dish...
  8. Home Environment
    I was making one of those awful pasta side dish packages last night, and the pot of milk boiled over. I've scrubbed the stove with soapy water, used a plastic scrubby thing, and tried the bottle of stovetop polishing stuff that came with the stove. I still have a brown ring of burnt milk on...

  12. Home Environment
    What's the best way to clean a glass shower door? My parents have been gone for a couple weeks, but I'm having trouble falling into any sort of routine here. I've just been floating through the days, feeling a bit disconnected and letting the housework slide. My mother wipes it down after...
  13. Homesteading and gardening
    Okay, I have about 3 dozen quart glass mayonaise jars. I know years ago, when money was tight, that I would use them as back up jars when doing water bath processing. I was thinking they would be good for storing dry food. I need to find a use for them, or take them to the recyle bin this...

  15. Frugal Living
    I realized last night while shopping that my boyfriend sometimes thinks of frugal ideas when I'm not even paying attention. We were shopping for christmas ornaments and we decided we wanted glass ones. We'd looked in several stores and found that most of the ones we liked were not nessisarily...

  18. Just Tips
    I learned something new from another site. My range had a condensation stain between the glass, a drip mark. Apparently someones husband figured out there were slots under the door where you can get something between the glass and clean off the streaks so you don't have to take things apart. I...

    Our general rule here, is we don't use disposable items with the exception of toilet paper. I don't buy paper plates, napkins, etc. We use re-usable alternatives for all those things. Well, the only dillema that I run into is cleaning certain glass items, like my bathroom mirror and my...

    I need your best "cheapest" ideas for temporary labeling of glass jars. I store most of my freezables (sauce, stock, etc..) in glass canning jars and I need a cheap way to label them. Something that can easily be removed as I have a pretty brisk turnaround on that stuff. But something that...
