    Is there any screen there that I can buy to cut for my food dehydrator?
  3. Make It Yourself
    It's been a life time goal of mine to learn how to make everything that effects me directly myself. I try to do it as naturally as possible, household supplies, toiletries, cosmetics, etc. Lately I've been working on the cosmetic aspect of that goal and I feel like I've run into a wall. I love...

  5. Question and Answer
    DD hosed up our old laptop. A few months back she set up multiple user accounts; set herself as admin and apparently deleted my admin account. Then the laptop got put away out of sight/out of mind. Of course she can't remember her password now, so we can't get the internet security package...

    I am planning on using soap as least as possible and possibly relying on powders and salts to melt/exfoliate the grime off myself. Biodegradable soaps are pointless because it takes soil to biodegrade them. I have a theory that Bath Salts (epsom salt, sea salt, essential oils) may be better for...

    I've got a thing of Pillsbury biscuts...thought I had longer to use them, but just checked the date...says "use before Jan 24". :bang: Do you think it's still safe to use them?

    Two years ago my mom and sister bought me a bathroom vanity for my 20th wedding anniversary. It has a granite countertop. Are there any homemade cleaners that will not pit the granite? What works best for you?
  10. Question and Answer
    Or is it safe for a long time and just the texture which goes "off?" I found a roast at the bottom of my freezer and it is 19 months old!!!!!! I am so upset that I lost it in there. It was amongst my chard and rhubarb, my least used area.... LOL. But I am really choked about wasting that meat...

    I know we're a little late about starting a Roth IRA, but better late than never:) Dh has a 401K through work,but I feel that we need to be doing more for retirement.The reason why we are so late & getting started is b/c we haven't had the extra money to do it until now. Dh has had his 401K now...

    How likely is it that someone(we will call John) with the info on a sf deposit owning-person(we will call Andy) to get into the safe deposit box? John probably knows SS, birth date, etc. I have never had a box so I am clueless and I don't think that learning from movies is a good source of...

    I have a huge stain of chili on my rug, that I don't know how to tackle safely. It's a area rug like carpet, I guess that is the best way to describe it. I would prefer not to use chemicals on it. Thanks for any help!

    Ok, so it's getting to be that time of year. Has anyone thought about what we're putting on our (and our kids') skin? I've thought about it. A lot. I have been needing to get myself down to the store to "get me some" new sunscreen this year..... I'm done with the junky, toxic sunscreens of...

    With the prices of everything skyrocketing, making your own cleaning products can be an easy way to save money. In addition to saving money, most are non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and safe for use around pets and children. They take very little time to make, so they don’t add to the...

    I have a question that I know my vet would jump on me for asking....has anyone ever gave their dog only 1/2 of their heartworm pill a month instead of a whole pill? And if you have, did it do just as well as it would have if you were to give the whole pill?? Thanks :)

  19. Preparedness and Survival
    I have not seen this posted, hope that I didn't miss it somewhere else, but I was wondering if anyone else is concerned about the safety of the banks. I see at least 3 banks have closed last Friday and the Friday before that also. Is our money safe in banks? I had heard that if JP Morgan had not...
