  1. Does Pyrex glass cookware emit toxic chemicals into food?

    1. No it does not :) It's a completely inert borosilicate glass safe for use in laboratories where leaching and contamination from materials may be of concern. It's also free from lead and heavy metals :) So enjoy your Pyrex!

  2. Hello. Do you have any ideas for something I can make or use in my office to diffuse the smell of heavy perfumes used by my coworkers? Love your blog.

    1. According to Delonghi it is lead-free, I always suggest that you get confirmation from the manufacturer before making any purchase as sometimes materials and material suppliers can change :)

  4. Hi,

    I read you review of the Naot Kumara because I'm thinking of buying a pair. Hope you don't mind a question. I usually take a 9.5 but they don't come in half sizes. The 9 felt snug and the 10 felt a little too big. I see that you take a 7.5 so did you get the 7 or the 8 and what do you think of the fit?

    Thanks.

    Laura

    1. I love the Kumaras, Naots conform to the foot very well. I'm normally a 7.5 and a 38 fits me a tad snug at first but they broke in after 1 3km walk and now they are like a dream :) Hope this helps.

  5. Yes that helps, thank you. I bought size 40 and as you mentioned, they're snug. I'm wearing them around the house to break them in. Encouraging to hear that yours worked out. I really like the lace up style and the distinct shape of the toe area gives them a bit of funkiness.

  6. Dear Colorful Canary,

    I read your article on organic glue. I use a lot of PVA glue for my projects. I work with paper. I would like to be more eco friendly and use the glues you have described. I have a concern, I live in a tropical country and we have problems with silverfish and mold. Do you have any idea if the use of these organic glues will attract these creatures?

    Sincerely,
    Safi

    1. We have insects and mold here too (very dam climate) I've never had any issues, the vinegar will keep insects and mold at bay and if you use the recipe with clove oil it has even stronger anti-fungal and insect deterring properties. :)

  7. I am designing and making a fabric book for my 9 month old grandson, and would like to transfer some pictures and photos onto the pages.

    As I am concerned about the toxicity of regular modge podge used to transfer pictures onto fabric, I was wondering whether your all-natural modge podge recipe would be safe to use for this purpose ( bearing in mind that my grandson will surely put the completed product in his mouth.

    I would also like to know whether this modge podge can be used to transfer pictures onto fabric, whether the pictures are permanent and finally whether any of the natural ingredients used in the recipe will spoil over time.

    Thanks your your awesome website!

    Kind Regards
    Gabby

    1. Hi Gabriella, I've never done photo transferring so I'm not sure how that works exactly. I've been using this recipe for many years, I have never had an issue with it going bad. After a while it will dry up in the bottle, but finished projects have been fine. :)
