    Two Questions:
    1. What do I do with thermal grocery receipt printouts?
    2. Can airline luggage tags that are not paper be recycled?

    I think that people were greener in the past than we are now. There were not so many items in the landfills as now. People reused items. Men even built items with motors they already had for farm uses. Nobody can seem to do that now. Everybody goes and buys new. It was common to recycle things because people didn't have money to buy new. They fixed items instead of sending them to landfills. I saw where a man repaired one of those cheap plastic chairs (hate them) with a piece of wood that he screwed into the part of the leg that was not broken. He was reusing the chair instead of throwing it away. Love it. I saw a clothes line that was rusted through and the person put another smaller pole inside it and then just duck taped the old pole around it. It seemed to work because they had clothes on the line. You just have to get creative about reusing items. I have baby food jars (from when my kids were younger) that I hung in the shop with nails and screws. Great for organizing. I have old metal coffee cans in the shop full of odds and ends too.

    I reuse mine for smaller items in my sewing room. I was thinking of using them for spices (I tend to buy the same brand and has a nice lid) but my problem is the lid still has the candle scent to it. I've washed them many times, soaked with vinegar and soaked them with vinegar and baking soda. I still can not get rid of the scent and do not want to put spices in them because of that. Does anyone else have this problem and how did you go about solving it? Thanks so much.

      Haz intentado bicarbonato y limón o también el café es bueno para los malos olores no se si echándo un poco y dejarlo tapado por unos días y luego limpias, sirve también para los malos olores en la nevera colocas en un platito un poco de un día para otro, no se si esto podría ayudarte.

    We use our bath and body works candle jars in the bathroom to hold q-tips, eye makeup remover pads , they are really pretty and come with all different types of decorative lids.
