Plastic Challenge: Kristin Overton, Week 50

Plastic Challenge: Kristin Overton, Week 50

Hair products: I have naturally wavy hair but it’s also what you could call “unruly”. If air drying, I usually use some sort of mousse or gel (spray or otherwise) type product… ideas?

Brands of hot sauce: knowing that in Canada I may not be able to find what you may recommend, have you found any without plastic? Or, how can one go about making it?

Plastic Challenge: Kristin Overton, Week 49

Plastic Challenge: Kristin Overton, Week 49

Our deep freeze is a lid-on-top style (rather than stand up) and I suspect when we begin to use glass to store leftovers there is a risk of breakage. Does anyone know of any sort of shelving systems we could use?

The freezer does have one basket that sits on the top, and we have another (plastic) storage container that we use to keep all of our homemade stock (in 2 cup plastic containers, ugh) separate from everything else in there. Any resources?

If anyone has natural suggestions for removing a blueberry liqueur stain from beige carpet, I would be forever grateful. It’s now a few days old and isn’t too bad, but….

Oh, and natural stuff to put in a steam cleaner as well as that’s in the plans too.
