What I would like to do is drop off my pile of laundry and pick it up all folded and neat and on hangers. I have used the fluff & fold service once or twice, and it's perfect. No pile of clean laundry to fold that eventually just becomes dusty, questionable laundry. My apartment has a washer and dryer in the bathroom, so that works fine. I just don't get the whole laundry fetish. All of the pretty pictures of laundry rooms with that extra hand-washing sink and super organized bins, seems like a waste of space to me. When my husband and I buy a place, we know it will probably be small, I'd rather have a huge bathtub or something. As far as the cost, I wonder if it really is more expensive. If you add up the cost of buying the washer/dryer, monthly utilities, plus the time you save, it might just even out. Besides, it's good for the economy, right? What about the environment? It seems like less water and electricity could be used at a central location, doing lots of laundry at once, than separately in each home. Just some ideas to justify my lazyness...

One caveat about using coconut oil as leather polish, it is solid and bright white at room temp. So rub it in good, get off all of the excess. I learned this on one cold day, the oil was invisible in my warm house, when I stepped out into the snow I had white chunky stuff on my shoes.

I inherited some pillows from my Grandma, which I'm sure she had for at least 5 years. When my boyfriend and I moved into our new place we ended up with a dozen pillows, some mishapen and yellowing. I took the cover off of one and I recognized the pattern from my childhood...we ended up with a pile of pillows on the living room floor to sort.

Peppermint essential oil works well. I don't know if it wipes out the scent trail or is a repellent, a little of both, maybe. I dilluted some in water and sprayed it around the ant trail, and the nearby ants started to panic and scurry away. Also, if you want to kill them mix some borax with sugar. They will take it back home and eat it, and I hear it makes them explode...
