Let me join your laundry cult

I have heard rumors of a magical laundry soap that will rejuvenate my laundry, removing years of built-up dryer sheet residue and leave my towels fluffy and like new. It will also brighten my dingy white shirts. I can't recall the name, but it is concentrated, all natural, and difficult to use. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? [more inside]

Find me the ideal tweezer

My partner has a very old (decades-old) pair of Revlon tweezers. They allow me to tweeze hairs without looking in a mirror, because they have a blunt tip that does not grab or poke my skin. I've tried for years to find these or comparable tweezers, and have had no luck. Searching for "blunt tip" gives me pointy, poky tweezers. eBay might be my best bet if I knew what to look for. I need this magical combination of a great grip but also a relatively wide, blunt tip and am tired of buying substandard tweezers. Help? Images of the tweezers in question.

Hiking sandals for enormous ankles

I need some sturdy walking sandals for my size 10 feet. I tried on some Teva Tirra's this morning and they were comfy like a dream. Except I can't do up the ankle strap. I need something like an extra inch and a half in the ankle strap in order for the velcro to work. Everything else fit perfectly. I looked at some men's Teva's and my soul left my body at their hideousness. Two part question as follows... [more inside]

Using essential oils in home crafts — what's your favorite info source?

Where should I go for practical, reliable, low-woo information about how to use essential oils for scenting homemade hair products? I have specific scents in mind and want to create my own recipe using them. Google is turning up mostly SEO-bait-looking sites with wildly contradictory information on basic questions like "How much EO do I use?" I know I should plan on doing some trial and error. But I'd like a starting point, maybe some 101-level instructions and principles. Is there a book or site aimed at practical crafters that I can read?
