    La-z-boy Reclaimed

    Great, that is a good start ;-)Just a quick note though...Recently I read a few articles written by professional exterminators and exterminating companies and they said that pesticide sprays or spray bombs won't work on bedbugs,since they are a whole different category of insect and are extremely difficult to eradicate. Only certain methods work (heat being number one). It's probably how they were able to spread to almost every country in the world in a short amount of time.The buggers must be related to spiders since nothing seems to kill them, haha!Again, genius idea!!! I definitely will be trying this at some point.

    What a fantastic idea!Love the Australian name of the DW40 spray,haha!A word of caution though...Be careful and take precautions when picking up thrown out furniture,since you never know 'why' it was thrown out. Could have bedbugs or other infestation. Heat kills bedbugs easily, and other insects are killed with insecticides. Just a thought.

    Glow in the Dark Hair Gel

    Thanks for your concern, I appreciate that ;-)I just googled 'are glow sticks safe?' and it states it's not dangerous, just mildly toxic (as in, it will cause a burning sensation of the skin on some people and would have the same feeling in the mouth and stomach if swallowed). I would only put it in the hair, so as long as it doesn't touch the skin in any way, I think it would be okay, but one must always use caution in anything you try (always good to be extra cautious). Here's what one website showed, thanks again: Are Glow Products Safe? Items that glow have delighted children and adults for years.

Here's what one website showed, thanks again: Are Glow Products Safe? Items that glow have delighted children and adults for years. The question surrounding the safety of the liquid inside glowing sticks, bracelets, and other glow novelties often arises among concerned parents. People aren't just worried about their children either. The Animal Poison Control Center of the ASCPA receives masses of similar calls from concerned pet owners each year. With this overwhelming concern for public safety, it's a surprise that glow products are such big sellers. Glowing novelty products, such as bracelets and sticks, are safer than the common household cleaners you find in a typical home. Your young child is far more likely to be seriously hurt from choking on a small glow toy than by splashing herself with the liquid contained inside. What Creates the Glow? The liquid inside of some glow products is a chemical called dibutyl phthalate. Glow products that don't use dibutyl phthalate use a small glass ampoule that contains a mixture of hydrogen peroxide dissolved in phthalic ester. Surrounding the glass ampoule is another chemical called phenyl oxalate ester. Dibutyl phthalate, widely considered the more dangerous of the above components, is used to manufacture plastics, glues, nail polish, leather, printing inks, safety glass, dyes and is used as a solvent for perfume. Poison Control Comments None of these chemicals are deadly dangerous, according to The National Capital Poison Center The advice from poison control for ingestion of the so-called glowing toxic liquid chemical is much the same. Rinse your mouth out well, drink a little milk, and call poison control, which will again, stay in touch to make sure you're fine. Poison control encourages people to stay in touch often because different individuals can have various reactions to chemicals. The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Comments The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is considered one of the best children's hospitals in the country, possibly the world. The hospital's poison control center reports that, "dibutyl phthalate is not a poison; it is an irritant. The best treatment for any exposure to dibutyl phthalate is water."

    Bloody Band-Aid Cookies for Halloween

    I think the peanut butter cookies are a great idea, much better tasting than just graham crackers and more realistic than the keebler cookies. I'm going to try that with 2 variations: I'll round the corners to make it look more like a bandaid, and I'll split the cookie in half lengthwise so that it's flatter like a bandaid. I may use white chocolate or marshmallow for the white part too. Love your idea, looks good, great job! ;-)

    37 Unusual Uses for Lonely Socks

    Hahaha. My first thought when I read the first line,"tie a tennis ball in a sock", was to stuff the sock in your spouse's gaping mouth when they wake you with their loud snoring! Kidding. I would never do that, just fantasize.
