Creative Reuse: The Many Miracles of Vinegar

While vaguely familiar with some of vinegar’s many uses I still mostly associate it with my favorite type of chips.  Now, thanks to Wise Bread, that signature smell will connote everything from fixing anemic plants to removing blood stains to settling my stomach to predetermining the sex of children.  If that doesn’t sound intriguing then I don’t know what will.

10 Weird and Wonderful Ways to Use Vinegar.

Reuse Resource: Swap & Share Sites

February 17, 2011 Leave a comment

We’ve talked about freecycle here, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  Re-Nest has a list of ten other sites for those looking to find creative reuse resources without having to dole out any dough.  They cover everything from baby-ware to bikes to makeup.  The one that really catches my eye is Portland, OR’s tool exchange.  I’m currently taking a woodworking class and one of the obvious benefits is access to all of the tools that would otherwise be too cost-prohibitive to own myself.  In fact, there’s a open studio class that fills up every semester with people who just want access to them.  If Portland, ME had a similar tool “club” you can bet I’d be a member.
