name change

Changing our name to elements write – words ignite, haven’t quite decided how this is going to work, sexymagick is still up and running but its time to move to a new phase in this blogs life, become a little more sophiscated. I think sexymagick will slowly be archived –  closing that chapter of the blogs life, slim it down and start concentrating more on functional pieces of writing art and eventually converted to a new blog for elementswrite. Its a work in progress, don’t expect changes overnight, I don’t have time to ferret out 10 years worth of posts and figure out what can be closed and what shall remain. In the meantime, is forwarded here as well as, our twitter feed has been changed.

baking soda

seems like a dull subject title however I discovered something new, I ran out of dishwasher soap the other day and was looking around for homemade versions because there had to be a way to use the ingredients that I had on hand to wash my dishes besides doing them by hand.

The recipe I found which sounds like a good idea but I don’t know what the heck borax is and I don’t have any of it lying around: mix 2 cups of borax, 1 cup of baking soda together and keep in a large jar. Add this to the dishwasher dispenser as usual. Then add white vinegar to the rinse dispenser.

What  I used: 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 2 tablespoons of liquid dish soap and it did get the dishes somewhat clean but what it really helped with is cleaning the dishwasher itself.

I ended up buying dishwasher soap to get the dishes clean eventually

me thinks next time I’m at the store, I’m grabbing baking soda, borax, vinegar – all the good cheap stuff to clean up around here and its green
