    can't walk down an aisle of household cleaners without breaking into hives.   the poisons call to one another, i think.

    i use vinegar and baking soda for just about everything, but be aware (i found out the hard way), vinegar attracts those little mites that like to swirl around fruit and plants.  killing them takes a douse of hydrogen peroxide.  (i'm not a follower of buddha when it comes to insects.)

    what were we talking about?

      We had a swarm of them once in our house that took us like two weeks to get rid of.

      I'll have to keep that in mind next time.

      I think this is all free-form now.

        (mix with water, i forget the ratio, 4:1 i think.)  pour the mixture down sink drains and also use when watering plants.  the mites make their little obnoxious nests in both places.

        they "followed" me from a move to a new place and i truly thought i was going to lose what was left of my mind.  i kept tossing more vinegar around and they kept multiplying because mites are attracted to vinegar!  

        thank you,  google.

        i will check out your blog, coquiero.  thank you in advance of reading.
