  1. I really like your approach to helping others keep their lives running in some reasonable order. I hope to pass along your website info to my you neighbor who seems to be just keeping her head above water and feels overwhelmed. She and her husband are the ages of my sons so I’m sort of a mom/friend figure for her. Her 2 children call me grammie.

    Thank you for sharing your ideas and taking the time to write this blog. It’s clear you have your own hands full.

  3. Earlier I posted question on having used powerful drain cleaner in the plug hole of my acrylic bath I was left with large white patch on the acrylic and asked if the bath was permanently damaged.
    However, I have managed to get it off by laboriously scrubbing with toothpaste and toothbrush.
    (This also works on car headlamp perspex when gets hazy).

  4. Hi,
    Is there a particular natural preservative you would recommend for using in homemade cleaning products to extend the shelf life?
