Making your own Extreme Incense is very easy. Once you get the hang of it, you will be making some as gifts for friends and family alike. It is a great hobby and creative outlet. You might even decide to turn it into a business and sell your creations at the local flea market on the weekends.

Fabrics that make you want to sit down and stay for some time are the best options for homeowners. Sometimes uncomfortable fabrics look great, but when it comes to use, they are no good. Sitting on a hard, scratchy couch is no fun for anyone. Instead, choose fabrics for your upholstery, drapes and accessories that are soft and comfortable. The more you want to sink into a cozy, comfortable couch, the better your home will feel.

Cloth diapers that I purchased as burp-cloths for my infant are used for cleaning up spills and dusting in my home. I have pets and a toddler so I can’t completely eliminate Herbal Potpourri paper towels but I use as few as possible. Once the diapers get older and beat-up, they go in a box to be used for washing the cars, or for my husband to use in his workshop.
