  1. Home Environment
    I have an older plastic/acrylic shower faucet handle - I tried to replace it but the screw is stripped and I didn't want to go through dealing with that, so I just want to see if there's anything I can do to get that yellowing out of acrylic? The handle is at least 10 years old and I have well...
  2. Green Living
    I've been hearing about how vinyl shower curtains contain the "no-no" PVC as well as other not so nice chemicals. The recommendation is to replace them with cloth shower curtains. My first thought is that cloth is not waterproof. I'm imagining water all over my bathroom floor. What do all...

    Hi there - want to give a baby shower favor to people coming to my baby shower and the hostess and I are trying to think of ideas that are inexpensive. We're not afraid to be creative. There'll be about 15 people there, so we can make something that's simple. I was thinking maybe get some...

    Yes, I'm really asking you this :toothy: If you are getting in the shower anyway - do you wait to pee in the shower to avoid wasting water by flushing the toilet? Or... do you pee in the shower.... well, just because you can? :huh: Do tell.... do tell..... I'll be happy to go first ~...
  5. Weddings and bridal showers
    Any suggestions on things to do at a bridal shower? It has been so long since I have been to one let alone hosted one. I do have one game that I bought at Party City, it is bridal bingo. Also any ideas for food would be helpful. Mostly finger food ideas. TIA
  6. Homesteading and gardening
    I'm trying something different, and will let you know later how it goes. We made a small raised bed garden last year at this new house, and it just did so well. We loved it. But the soil is cold up here, and I have to wait quite a while before setting out plants. Meanwhile, we remodeled...

  10. Question and Answer
    Every time I buy a new shower curtain, I buy new shower curtain hooks to match. I know... I know..... I'm not giving up my retro beads in the bathroom anytime soon. I have frogs, flowers, and angels that matched some decor in the bathroom in the years past. Besides donating them, is there any...

    Good Day Ladies (and Gents)... The ladies' group at church is holding a baby shower this Sunday for a couple who just had their first baby. :baby: I'm kind of stumped at what to bring for food. We're ordering a cake so that's taken care of. It's a finger foods/snacks menu. Most bring...
  12. Baby showers
    I am thinking about throwing my own baby shower. It is our 4th child but with our youngest being 8 (she will be 9 when baby gets here) We had given everything away. We did happen to find a crib, swing and car seat and a friend gave us a stroller but that is all we have. We have not been able...

    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...
  14. Health and beauty
    Been reading about how the plastic synthetic shower pouffys retain bacteria and are a breeding ground. What I'm failing to understand is how b/c (1) its plastic and dries out quickly (2) you use soap on it before you apply it to your body and most rinse thoroughly after using. Are there others...

    Before I bought the house, their was a leaky shower pan in the master shower. So, the seller paid $3,125.00 to have the whole shower replaced and have the wall in the closet re-plastered. I still find pieces of grout on the shower floor from the oh-so-wonderful repair job. The shower drips...
