Baking soda: a cleaner of my choice

Mar 5th 2008 9:46AM Thanks, Diane. Using baking soda to clean does take a bit more elbow grease, BUT, you won't suffer from the noxious fumes, because baking soda doesn't have any. It works just as well as any cleaner you can buy at the store and is fairly cheap. It takes a bit more water to get the gritty residue up, but it is so worth it. I don't remember the last time I had a migraine, thanks to using baking soda, lemons, dawn dish soap, and vinegar to clean.

Should a parent appologize for a child's rude behavior?

Feb 28th 2008 5:01PM Just be incredibly grateful it was you, and not some jerk that might have walked off with that child the mother so obviously wasn't watching. My daughter is almost 3 years old, and I would definitely apologize if she had been bothering you but then again, she probably wouldn't have spoken to you, as she knows better. That mother hasn't taught her daughter anything about strangers...super SCARY!!

Remove a stuck ring from your finger

Jan 17th 2008 4:41PM Speaking from personal experience, Do NOT take your ring off over an open sink. Put the stopper in first. My ring came flying off my finger and landed down the hole in the sink. Fortunately it isn't a completely open hole and I was able to retrieve the ring.

The comfort of the breath-check

Jan 8th 2008 5:33PM You betcha, and I will check on my 2 1/2 year old daughter's breathing, even in the middle of the night, til the day she leaves home. I have too, it gives me peace of mind knowing she is breathing, especially since my oldest daughter passed away 18 1/2 months ago at the age of 34 months.
