The trouble with that is as soon as I peel a hard boiled egg, I eat it! LOL

If your cats use your furniture for a scratching post (like mine) rub vicks vapor rub on the area you don't want them scratching. The smell of the vicks will keep the away.

Doesn't the Vicks make the material oily? I would think that the more liquid eucalyptus inhaler wood do the same thing, without putting a petroleum jelly base into your upholstery. I could be wrong with this though. It's a supposition.

I wish I could buy hydrogen peroxide and white vinegar in a 55-gal. drum. I use hydrogen peroxide instead of bleach with my whites, to clean my counters, and vinegar is my go-to friend for cleaning windows.

Well, I buy hydrogen peroxide and vinegar by the case.

I transported a dog with a severed artery to the vet clinic--hydrogen peroxide and plain white shaving cream got all the blood out of my car--albeit, it took about 5 hours. My mother always used it to get blood out off fabric. And, I've always used it to clean the drains in the kitchen sink (combined with baking soda).

Sadly, any idiot with a computer and an internet connection can create a website and start posting gibberish.

As the young woman says in the Allstate commercial. "They can't put it on the internet if it isn't true." People actually believe this.

Yup, GG, you're right, hydrogen peroxide isn't water and oxygen. But, it does break down to water and oxygen. That opening statement was enough for me not to read the rest of the article.

Blood stains lift up from fabric just by using plain Cold water and soap.

Copernicus was too starry-eyed to give such down-to-earth advice.

Unfortunately, it would also keep ME away from that furniture. And our furball likes MY chair best.

I think when you have cats, you have to choose between the cats or the furniture. You can't have both.

I have a cat blanket over the spot Latté thinks is a scratching post, I try to keep it over that spot and she lays there. Smudge was caught scratching on the weight bench seat, I've put a towel over it, when she jumps up there it slides her off the seat. She almost has the idea.

This might be common knowledge, but since I've worked at 2 restaurants that made a honey balsamic vinaigrette and didn't do this, I'll post it anyway. A couple weeks ago I discovered that if I slowly add my oil to my honey first, mixing and emulsifying as I go, the vinegar will emulsify too when I add it. It doesn't even take very much honey to do it. Woo hoo! No more dressing shaking for me! I made some last night and it still hasn't separated in the fridge. I was planning on using it up tonight, but now I'm curious to see if it will eventually separate again.

That ole experimental scientist side has crept up on you...

I'll remember that the next time I start something with honey and oil...Shrek's dipping sauce kept separating.
