On Beauty Q&A: Shells, Bra Purses, and The Next New 'Do

@han Totally unsolicited advice, but if you are afraid of permanent dye stay far away from henna! It doesn't ever completely fade out and there's no good way to get rid of it save chopping it all off! I used henna for about a year and it was the prettiest red I've ever had, but when I decided I wanted a change I had to grow it out and cut most of it off. My hair now is the lavender/blue/teal of my dreams and even with multiple colours the upkeep is way easier than henna.

On Ask a Clean Person: Get Rid of Your Coworkers, Seriously, They Are Revolting

@Xanthophyllippa We always used it to clean stickers off of the tile floor and get scuff marks off of white sneaker soles, and just gradually discovered that it's pretty bomb at cleaning just about anything.

All protector/waterproofing spray, the stuff you use on your shoes, works WONDERS on whiteboards! Not only does it clean off all the marker, it also makes it easier to erase the next time! I work in a shoe store, and I can attest that the all protector works way better than windex on our whiteboard. It's also amazing to get rid of any type of sticky residue. Seriously, it is amazing.

On What Your Payment Method Reveals About You

@Craftastrophies I just got really excited about shrinky-dink money since we just got plastic money in Canada, too. But then I remembered we only have $100 bills out so far, so I suppose I'll have to wait a couple more years until they phase out the smaller bills too.

On Beauty Q&A: Freeboobing and Cute Pajamas

@ReginaChristina Just FYI, Manitobah Mukluks (the brand linked to) is a Canadian, Native owned and operated company that produces authentic mukluks. All production takes place in Manitoba, and The Mukluks are hand made and hand beaded. So yeah, they aren't made by individual artisans, but they certainly aren't "awful, cheap knock offs" either.

On Another Way for Your Sunday Crossword to Last All Week

Also, instead of soaking your finger in acup of rubbing alcohol (which seems really wasteful to me?)you can just soak a cottonball/pad with alcohol and press it on your fingernail over the newspaper bit. Much easier!
