I tried some Method dish soap because the scent sounded nice. Terrible stuff. I put in 4 pumps, 5 minutes later all the suds are gone. I think they sell it to people who wash dishes under running...

I love old cookbooks but I can't say I am craving an aspic or any non-sweet molded dish. I don't even like when they put vegetables in Jello and call it a salad.

That's my thought too about the pillows/petbeds filled with scraps. Picture washing them, a big bag of fabric pieces - it's not the same as polyfill. Then it would take a long time to dry in the...
