1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: how well does lard based soap clean? on: February 08, 2014 03:05:45 PM
I don't know anything about that calculator but wasn't lard and lye what was used for thousands of years as soap? Olive oil in castile soap is a more recent developement. Just saying.
2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Static-addicted hairbrush and natural red hair tint on: February 08, 2014 02:49:00 PM
There used to be a product called "Static Guard" that was a spray. I don't know it still exsists but it could be sprayed on the brush or even on your hair directly. As for dies for the hair, you could try a large variety of dye plants. Animal fiber was traditionally died with plant dyes and visa versa. Hibiscus is probably a contender for a purple red, onion skins are great for yellow or an orange yellow, brown would be walnut hulls or coffee. You could look up more on line. I do think most of the these dies started with white fiber. Another crazy thing to try is koolaid. I have heard the punkrock / goth community mentioning using it. Trial and error if you are an adventurous type.

Are you able to rehang the door to the hall to swing out? I was going to suggest tearing out the closet. I like the wadrobe. Consider putting up a  wood shelf(s)on the wall  to the bedroom with either an under hung bar or some hooks for towels and / or robes / p.j.s. You could also add a good size mirror to that wall.

Praying mantids eat everything. Also, mascovy ducks and guinea fowl are good for reducing insect populations.

I agree it would be nice to see some throw pillows. Would you need to use an exterior fabric such as laminated cotton or vinyl? Maybe you could also put a colorful netting over the whole thing. There are also exterior lights that could be run along the edge. You could also hang origami from the top interior with string.

I love the style. It led me to look at your website and other posts. You do great work and I am inspired.
Have you thought of using other materials for the jacket? It has a very practical use while looking very stylish.

You could always scan and print onto printable canvas or silk. It can be found in a lot of crafting stores. You could change the sizing to what you need, as well. It would make things a bit thicker though.

If you decide to paint go for a very pale yellow antifungal concrete paint . It will give some warmth to the area without being super obnoxious. the other aspects help it to last more than a couple months with the moisture of a basement.

Usually, I add garlic and onion cooked in butter to my cream sauces. Various herbs are added for different flavors, but I don't know what Carbonara is.
