Insydey, I've seen a bug trap that was just a wide mouth jar with petroleum jelly spread about the tapered inside area. with a rough piece of cloth for them to climb up, and bait inside. the Cockroach can climb up and fall into the jar, but the petroleum jelly prevents them from getting back out. Even a very tall glass would do this as they have difficulty getting a grip on glass on such a vertical surface.
Pool Supply DE is very dangerous to use this way. It has been fired so the silica becomes elongated strands instead of the small micro shards of the natural DE powder. These long strands can pierce and damage the lungs more than the natural unfired product and can lead to silicosis of the lungs. It is NEVER safe to use Pool DE to dust a house. It should only be use IN pool filters Under water. Thanks for the suggestion though, but only use Natural Unfired DE, It can be found in BigBox stores or at Feed Stores.

I guess that makes sense with a electric stove with that metal ring, but I've got a glass top stove so I'm not sure what I can get away with without potentially damaging it.. It does get hot enough to burn a forgotten pot of ramen to char........ So it may get hot enough to do this as well. I'll check out the Amazon products and see if anyone has any experience with glass tops. I might just relegate this to the "Cool but don't try it" bin for now. Still gotta build my rocket stove too.
Smoking in an apartment
I don't have a gas stove, so I can't do this, but I loved the idea. I have a tiny bit of a concrete porch off of my kitchen. Could this be done oustide with a Rocket Stove??
OMG! I remember making this with the kids at our Local Boys and Girls Club back in 1990's! It was so much fun. They had a ball making their own dolls and clothes and characters. Thanks for bringing this memory back! We didn't have a drill so we just wrapped the pipecleaner around the body and glued it for the arms. If I did it again, now i have a drill to make it easier.

You are so silly. What I took away from this is the great idea for feeding glue-sodden yarn from a pitcher. Great delivery method!
Wow! I love it! I'd like to wear jewelry sometimes, but I'm poor and dislike uncomfortable things. I like wooden and shell and other natural type jewelry cause they are not so flashy. Now I can make my own rings without needing lots of tools. Thanks! I am officially following you for all your great ideas and great recycling projects. You are truly and En-Ible-er!

thanks for that tip. usually I just put in a little cup with a little bit of peroxide and refresh the liquid cup the next day as I need.
wow, good thing your daughter didn't rent there, sulfur would make everything smell bad. What a hassle it would be to not be able to shower at home . Thanks for explaining your rant it makes more sense now to me. There are so many "experiments" going on on the public some I agree with( like vaccines ) some I don't( like the lid hypothesis ) the fluoride thing is so weird I don't know what to think about it. There are pros and cons on both sides but without an overwhelming Pro it seems to me that I'd want not to expose excessively.
That makes sense to me. After some years of using my own homemade paste, I used some commercial toothpaste my mother gave me and my mouth did not feel clean at all! I was glad to get back to my own salty paste, LOL
I guess someone is doing their marketing wrong, cause here are a couple of large almost gallon sized bottles marketed for babies with added fluouride. I wonder if as Lassensurf said, the fluoride is added to the same level of tap. I wonder if this water is for people mixing formula?https://www.metabunk.org/attachments/flouridewater... https://carnicominstitute.org/wp/wp-content/upload...
Glad you have delicious water and great dental health. I'm not sure if you misread my intention when I said you don't need to add it to homemade toothpaste. I said that because it's in the municipal drinking water. I wasn't saying you "need" fluoride, just that whether you like it or not or know it or not, if you drink city water, you are ingesting it, and there is no need to try to add it to a natural homemade toothpaste. I don't think fluoride is a mineral that ends up in water in much quantity on it's own, so I also can't comment about natural aquifers either, but I don't see the need to add it to water or toothpaste, so there was no need to rant. LOL
What a clever idea!
Do NOT grind bones and give to pets. Any bones that they can chew up themselves is good enough. If the bone is too hard for them to "grind" with their own teeth, they do not need it. Grinding allows degradation by exposure to oxygen on thousands of surfaces. Give the cat a chicken wing or thigh, and the cat/dog will chew off the skin and then the meat, and will chew at the bone from the end. the pet will only be able to break off what he/she can swallow, and only that part will be exposed for a short time before it goes into the stomach. You can save yourself a lot of trouble, time and clean up by feeding them the meat with the bone and letting the cat eat what it can.
The only problem I have with this instructible is suggesting that the meat needs grinding. The extra taurine is not necessary if the meat is not exposed to excessive amounts of oxygen and that happens with grinding. The meat can be fed as is. Cats have jaws that tear off the meat into the sizes they can swallow. Ground food can allow gulping and overeating. As to cooking, that is not necessary as cats digestive juice is much more acidic than humans and the bacteria and parasites on food that would harm us would not bother them. As to parasites that WOULD bother them, cooking do not kill those, such as trichonosis, but it is a rare bug in the US and only found in wild carnivores and animals pets would not be eating anyway, not the current pork supply.
It is not really an issue, freezing and bacteria. You don't have to worry about toxins the bacteria have produced if you are feeding the pet fresh food. Feed them what you would eat and they'll be fine. They can even eat it if it's been out for a few hours total. Think of how animals will bury a meal to find for a snack later. They lick their own anuses. They are not as fragile as humans.
