    Seriously?! -- Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week.  A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain.  A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue.  A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain. Log this away for later.

    I clean my brushes with Allback Organic Linseed Soap - once you try it, you'll never want to use anything else! Just rinse your brush in solvent, then rub it in the soap and rinse with warm water. Your brush will be like new! Amazing stuff.
