I use a mixture of borax, soda (can't remember if it's washing or baking), and citric acid. I put white vinegar in as a rinse aid and have no problems with cloudy dishes. The water's not too hard here though.

I wish I could like comments here. Starlinguk pretty much sums up the arguments. As a parent this thing is a lifesaver. Yeah, it's not the first line of defense but it's certainly useful. I'm a renter. I don't have the luxury of leaving the crayons marks on the wall.

I think the flavor is better when you squeeze it fresh but I've never had a problem with the stuff from a bottle. It's actually rare for me to use my citrus that way though. Usually we end up eating it so the juice never makes it into our recipes.

I have a cat who's a companion animal. Lately her sleeping in my bed has made the difference between whether or not I've been able to fall asleep (bouts of insomnia). I don't need meds for it, my cat has been help enough. The benefits far outnumber any possible risk of germs.

You'll have to remember that the heat from those candles will have to go somewhere if its a fake fireplace. I had wanted to do the same thing with mine. Instead I now have my mouse cage hiding behind the screen. If you wanted to put a wine rack down there then yeah, you could use a screen to disguise it. Personally I like it for storage if you can't use the candles. Let's face it, apartments are usually small. What waste the space?

The first thought that popped into my head was add some white and a bright, sunny yellow. Maybe a daisy theme?
