Add a Fresh Scent "A good smell in the air is an unconscious cue to everyone that they're expected, that something good is in store for them, that they're going to be taken care of. Sometimes I burn rosemary in the fireplace, or put it in a cast-iron pan, light it on fire, and walk around the house with the pan, letting the smoke and scent go all over the house" Alice Watres

Rules for an Art Wall (bunnywilliams.com): A. Height and Width (A cluster of artwork needs an anchor, like a console or a settee). B. Size and Specs (Mix rectangular and square pieces of art, except one piece a third larger than the rest to ground the vignette) C. The Space Between (The more tightly you group art, the more impact it has)

Healthy Cookware Cookware safety often relates to factors in your control: the quality of the pots you buy, their care, and choosing the right pan for the job. A cast iron skillet browns meat beautifully, for instance, but reacts with certain acidic foods, such as tomatoes, altering the taste of ingredients. Knowing your cookware is your best bet for cooking well -- and safely.

20 Ways to Green Your Kitchen Space As is, baking soda won't necessarily clear a pathway. It first needs to change its chemical composition. Don't worry, it sounds more complicated than it actually is. Boiling water converts baking soda to sodium carbonate, a more effective drain cleaner. Pour 1 cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by 3 cups of boiling water, and let science take over. It's a much safer choice than commercial drain cleaners.

Slow-Moving Drains and Garbage Disposals: Pour in 1⁄2 cup baking soda, followed by 1⁄2 cup vinegar; let sit for 2 hours. Run warm water, or turn on the disposal for a few seconds.
Best way to REALLY get the kitchen sink clean? Fill with really hot water, add 1 cup of bleach, then soak for 1 hour. Drain, scrub with baking soda, then polish with Windex. This really works.

Smudges on Painted Walls

DIY strategies for some home repairs and deep cleaning.
Fill holes and cracks in walls: Apply quickset plaster. Use Durabond 20 – it dries in 20 minutes. (The drying time can be decreased by using a hair dryer). Apply plaster by pushing it in the holes using the end of a putty knife so you don’t get a ‘mound’. Sand and spot prime with the the wall paint you are using . This will prevent ‘flashing’ where sunshine will show pockets. Paint each hole and crack 3 times with wall paint then paint the entire wall.
Clean the walls! Use diluted TSP to remove grease, and smoke with a dampened, not soaked rag before pairing.
