My concern is whether you can technical use any oil but mineral oil on wooden boards. Everything you read says other oils will go rancid.

Also, as a cook, bamboo (or glass), do not make good cutting boards as they are hard on knives.

I found my grandfather's old safety razor, but now I must find blades. Trying to find them locally (the internet says Walgreens & target carries them) I discovered that many are Teflon coated. So now the chore is to find them packaged without plastic, without Teflon. Maybe most are coated now??

The "bread" container is sold out. Any chance there will be more before the sale ends?

I googled "plastic free knitting" and what did I find? Beth Terry already thought of what's on my mind!

So, as a novice knitter, to make a blanket, do I buy circular needles, or learn to crochet?

How is your brush holding up? I have a wooden brush (different brand) that needs replacing.

I hope you can come to Austin Texas! Maybe at in.gredients?if no one else here would talk I'd do it, but I'm sure there are people here who are free-er of plastic than me.

@BethTerry @VagabondAnne You can buy metal hammock free standing stands. No tree required. Can you sleep on your side or stomach on a cot?

Hello! What do you out the baking soda mix in when you travel? I put some in an old badger balm container, but it has made it hard to open. I'm trying to find something small and lightweight (so maybe not glass).

What do you do about cat messes? (only vomit so far, but possibly other messes later). Thanks!
