Don't know what to do with all those left over soap scraps? Make yourself a little scrubby bag with double stitch crochet - scrubs and lets the suds through, and when you put in a new bar, just leave the old pieces in there too and they'll be all used up. This one is made from bamboo fiber, so is also naturally anti-bacterial.
My beloved Easy Yo yogurt maker. This is from the UK (though they're made in New Zealand). There are alot of makers out there and ways to make yogurt in your oven or on a heat mat, but the reason I love this so much is that it's basically a thermos - so no electricity or constant warming needed and you can throw it up on a shelf while it's cooking away, so no extra counter space needed either. And so easy.....put the ingredients in the yogurt tub, mix well, put boiling water in the thermos up to the level inside, put the yogurt tub in there, screw on the lid, leave overnight and the next morning - lots of yummy FIRM yogurt! They also have some really yummy packet mixes you can get (Stian sends me a few now and then from NZ when he's there!), but it works just as well with totally from scratch too!
