I'd wear gloves while working with this pain it in a well ventilated area, and don't get any in mouth or on tongue....and avoid getting it under nails or in any wounds (safety is job #1.) Many of these newer synthetic generations of paint come with warnings for darn good reasons! Thanks for reading, signed, painting mom!

  • I live on a very tight budget, so don't purchase things that are "ify." I fixed this problem years ago and didn't spend any money, I just cut downward facing "V" shaped notches into opposite walls of my plastic trash can, then pushed the "V" outwards so the bag could grab onto it. I used an old steak knife to cut (working from the outside). Easy -peasy.

  • My grandma used to make a poorman's bread using diced chedder cheese, palminto's, olives, and diced ham... never measured just eye balled it and it was just the best. I'm gonna try this.

As long as nobody designs a computer sensor telling me when to take the garbage out I'm OK with leaving the glorious trash can alone.

    I made this using men's cologne for my son's bathroom. Just be careful adding it in! I found that adding the fragrance first to the salts and letting them "dry out" for a day helped the process.
