What You Can Do With Baking Soda

Baking soda is one of the absolute basics of natural house cleaning. Nearly every recipe for making your own cleaners seems to contain baking soda in it somewhere – and those that don’t have it usually contain vinegar and are used for cleaning glass.
Baking soda can be used for so many things that it would be easier to say what it doesn’t do rather than what it does do.
* It can’t be used as a substitute for baking powder. If you do, the cake (or whatever) won’t rise and will have a horrible soapy taste as the heating process turns the baking soda to washing soda. However, if you have something acidic in the mixture such as yoghurt or vinegar, then the mixture will rise. Alternatively, you can make your own baking powder by combining 1 measure of baking soda with 2 measures of citric or tartaric acid.…

Common Mistakes in Designing Your Own Home

Most mistakes made in designing your own home come from the planning stage. The lack of planning during the planning stage can result in some fairly common mistakes that when revisited by the designer seem rather simplistic. Budgeting is also a big area where common mistakes occur.
Planning Mistakes

Starting an Antiques and Collectibles Auction Business: Expenses Vs Revenue

As an auction business owner, it is difficult for you alone to control your revenue. There are so many outside forces affecting it, such as the economy, the type of merchandise consigned to you, the quality of that merchandise and the size of your crowd on auction day.
Even if you produce effective ads to draw in bidders, you are powerless over how successful your advertising partners are at managing their own businesses. If their readership is down, your ads will not be as effective as they should be no matter how well written they are.
Since such external factors can adversely influence your auction business, you have to capitalize on that which you can control – your day-to-day expenses.
Obviously you do not decide how much a dealership is going to charge you for a new truck, but you can decide to buy a used truck instead. You can …

The History of Chocolate Chip Cookies

The chocolate chip cookie was invented by a lady named Ruth Wakefield in 1933 and like many great recipes today it was discovered completely by accident. Ruth was the owner of the Toll house Inn which was located in Whitman, Massachusetts which was a very popular place to take in some good home cooked meals.
They say Ruth regularly made chocolate cookies using bakers chocolate, but one day she ran out and only had access to a nestle semi sweet chocolate so she broke the bar into pieces and mixed it into the batter thinking it would melt and mix with it. And of course the chocolate pieces did not mixed like the bakers chocolate and the nestle toll house chocolate chip cookie was born.
Ruth Wakefield then sold the recipe to Nestle in exchange for a lifetime supply of chocolate chips. Nestle has since printed the recipe on the …

3 Most Common Listing Mistakes

There are many aspects to consider when putting a home on the market, but it will be hard to get a house sold if it’s not presented correctly in the first place.
Pricing a house too high. You love your house, have memories there and have probably made a great deal of improvements.

If yours is priced noticeably higher than your competition, your house will get passed by. Get a list of comparable houses that have recently sold in your area and visit them to compare their condition and sales price to what you want to sell your house for.
