Oh, the label's boring? 51 Fantastic Uses for Baking Soda (Page 2) I don’t mean to sound seditious here, but I have a rebellious plan to combat the ills that many corporations are perpetrating in the name of fighting grime and germs. My main gripe is about the environmental pollutants from cleaning and personal care products that we wash down our drains and into our water systems, resulting in situations like the chemical triclosan (a pesticide added to many products as an antibacterial agent) being found in dolphins. So the simple plan is to encourage everyone to use baking soda in any of these 51 applications. Besides showing kindness to aquatic life, we can also protect ourselves from the array of toxins in household cleaning products. Conventional cleansers can expose us to multiple chemicals linked to asthma, cancer and other documented health problems. So exactly how does baking soda fit into my scheme to make the world a better place?

DIY Wood-Grain Laptop Wrap. When I was wandering through the dollar store the other day I came across this super amazing wood-grain contact paper. and was completely smitten! I knew I needed to find something to cover it with - pronto! Enter, my lapytop. This poor beast is old, makes a crazy fan-sound whenever it's on, and can't really handle doing more than one tast - but it works! And that's all that really counts. Until this morning it was covered in all sorts of bumper stickers to hide the numerous dents and scratches. So, I had plenty of photos of the entire process, but my camera is also an old and quirky beast and has taken to randomly deleting photos, which it decided to do half-way through the whole DIY process, so sorry! So, to start, go ahead and power off your laptop and take out the battery so you're free to work on it without any worries. Now, you can decide what you'd like to do about the logo on your cover.
