Vinegar, Baking Soda, and Lemons One of my earliest memories is of my mother cleaning with what looked to me like cooking ingredients. She would be listening to the radio as she poured baking soda, lemon, and vinegar combinations on the surfaces of our home. Here are a few basic household ingredients and items you can use to clean your home. Vinegar Uses: Vinegar actually cleans much like an all-purpose cleaner. Bathroom: Clean the bathtub, toilet, sink, and counter-tops. Kitchen: Clean the top of the stove with equal parts vinegar and water. Laundry Room: You can use vinegar as a natural fabric softener. Lemon Juice Uses Lemon juice is another natural substance that can be used to clean your home. Baking Soda Uses Baking soda can be used to scrub surfaces in much the same way as commercial non-abrasive cleansers. Other Natural Cleaners There are quite a few other options for natural cleaners.

Create a Kickass, Seamless, Play-Everything Media Center: The Complete Guide I really want to love XBMC, and maybe you guys can help me out. Here is my situation: -I rip all my DVDs & Blu Rays to my Media Center. -My wife and daughter watch a ton of shows on Netflix. -I use a wireless XBox 360 controller on my Media Center to play games. First off, I feel like XBMC Flicks has been hit and miss. For example, I just installed XBMC on my desktop to see how XBMC Flicks is working out. Also, I'd love to add Netflix (XBMC Flicks) to the main menu in XBMC, instead of having it be an obscure item in the video add-ons. My Current solution is functional: -I run Windows Media Center as my main interface, and customize it with Media Center Studio (which I had to patch to restore full functionality). -All movies and tv shows are listed in the default Video Library section in Windows Media Center -I added a "Games" section that lists all the XBox 360 controller compatible games I have installed on the system (plus a few extras that launch joy2key to run as well)

Art & Mañas 23 feb Inspiración: Mesita auxiliar en azulón Me pirra este azulón! tengo un bote con un azul muy muy parecido muerto del asco en el armario esperando el mueble perfecto para él! Mientras tanto… me conformo con mirarlo en la distancia Enviado por: Art & Mañas 4 feb Restaurando una mesita en blanco roto decapada en gris plata Por fín está acabada la mesita de Belén! Al final hemos tardado un poco más de la cuenta ( un mes más, para ser exactos :-D), pero lo importante es que está acabada y que ha quedado preciosa. Desde le último post, sólo nos quedaba pintar los pomos que ha sido casi la decisión más difícil y al final nos hemos guiado un poco por las pinturas para metal que tenía en casa, que eran dos: color crema y un azul grisáceo que usé en su momento para las bisagras del baúl aguamarina Así que cogí todo el color crema que tenía y eché un poquito de azul y nos salió este azul que veis en la foto, que me encanta!
