  •  Be nice if we could get all of the chemicals in (10+ / 0-)

    use in modern society actually studied and approved or disapproved for use, rather than having so many of them 'grandfathered in' under decades old laws.

    I prefer my furniture to be wood, stone, metal, cloth, with no freaking chemicals, but that's darned hard to come by.  I'd rather take my chances with a fire than be surrounded by toxins day in and day out.

    •  don't forget your dishes. use glass bowls not (1+ / 0-)

      plastic. cover empty bowls with a small plate, not saran wrap. Microwave, sure, but again, not in plastic. Bake in stoneware, cook in cast iron or stainless steel...

      It may even have been you to whom I said this comment before, and to me it's all-important. I admit to using zip-lock bags, but that's for freezing fresh produce etc. I have smelled warm plastic things that are giving off fumes, but I haven't noticed it with the freezer.

      At any rate, I grew up with a mom who was a potter, so I've always had the best for plates, etc. and it's worth any extra for long-lasting quality. And how about time for a little day-to-day beauty in the world. Metal, wood, clay, etc. are all quite naturally lovely. Plastic? not so much.

      We are all pupils in the eyes of God.
