    I made pumpkin :pumpkin: bread and in one bite of it I found very bitter, soapy tasting mess. It was so bad I spit it out to see if there was anything unidentifiable in the bread but I couldn't find anything out of the ordinary by the look of it. The only thing I can think of is the oil...

    Does anyone use lye soap for stains? I made some a while ago and just used some on one of my ruined new tops. Well, my top is good as new, again! The soap took out the grease stains. It even rescued one of my DH's t-shirts. I'd be careful on what you use it on, but it worked great! Both of the...

    I am beginning to run out of dish soap (for washing by hand), so I am thinking of turning to dr bronner's castile soap. Has anyone have had experiences washing with bronner's? I heard people swear by it, while others complain about the "film" that forms after washing with the soap. I just...
