Re: I fancy going on a rubbish reduction year

I've been at this for awhile, but to give it a place as a goal for the year, is a good idea. When I look around the neighborhood on trash/rubbish pick-up days, I'm almost always one of those with the smallest amount. But, there is a neighborhood dumpster/skip. Folks take things there when they don't...

Re: Insence as a form of air freshener

Forgot to post that some have had good results with using cut-up apples in a bag in the car. They soak up whatever unpleasant smells are in the car. Then you can put the apples in the compost. I left on open bag of potato chips/crisps in the car this summer. I had had a can of gasoline/petrol leak i...

Re: Surprise at eco cleaning

It's nice to discover! I've found that the vinegar smell evaporates fairly quickly, esp. if I put the cap back on the vinegar bottle right away.

Re: Insence as a form of air freshener

Zeolite soaks up smells. So does carbon fabric. Baking soda is worth a try, and costs less. I use a UV light air purifier from http://www.airoasis.com/ I also use HEPA air filters with a carbon screen. Clean has no smell. Using smells to cover up smells can compound problems, esp. when both categori...

Re: "THE FIT-ISH CLUB"

My commitment is to put nice things in my life: moments, rests, make healthier choices about work, people, my thoughts, attitudes, etc. The eating-when-I'm-not-hungry is a quick, poor substitute for making choices which require deliberate choice. The short version: make healthier choices What a nice...

Re: How to bite your tongue...

Mrs. Flibble, I don't know if my two-cents-worth is any help. But, here goes. When I want something which I find important to be really understood, I try to stick to the facts as best I understand them.

Re: The time has come...

Well, that was a good name. I was thinking that, too. The Fit-Ish Club. What do you all think?

I'm doing well this week-end. Hope every one is feeling at peace with the plan she's on.

Here's to a nice Sunday!
