Just An Update…March 19, 2020
I have been keeping an eye on the news and there’s so much going on, I don’t think I could touch on all of the topics without typing non-stop all day. There’s so much that I want to write about, but no time for most of them. Go figure…
But, I did decide to make a small update for you, dear readers, to let you know what I am working on.
By far, my most popular topics these days are DIY. This is completely understandable as there are SO many shortages across the country and, indeed, around the globe, for various items that we either need, feel the need for, or want badly. My focus is on using things you already have or can easily get even during times of shortage. Hopefully, I will be able to get some video walkthroughs together to go with each DIY.
Some of the things I am working on are a little risque- things like an easy DIY still for making homemade antiseptic. When it comes to building a still, check your local laws! Distilling spirits are illegal in many states and countries, I’m not responsible for you failing to check local laws! Also, the simple DIY still will NOT work to make spirits for consumption, only for antiseptic! That’s because I’m working on a design that uses things a lot of people already have in their homes or can easily get their hands on, even in this crisis. So, it won’t be a pretty copper still… more like a Frankenstein kitchen monster with plastic tubes poking out of it! Also, please note that even in states where it is legal to own and operate a still, it is still illegal to sell the distilled spirits to anyone for any reason. This publication will be for personal use ONLY. More coming on that soon…
Other things I am working on are more easy and quick- like a DIY face mask. During this global face mask shortage, it is important for us to be able to get our hands on a reliable face mask. Keep in mind that something is better than nothing when it comes to personal protection. While DIY face masks may not be as reliable or protective as a true N-99 mask, it does work better than nothing. I’ll have scientific experiments linked to on the pattern page to show how well you could expect your DIY mask to work for you.
I’m completely open to ideas! If there is something you want to see a published DIY tutorial on, let me know in the comment area below! Subscribe to receive an email when I publish new articles so you can be notified when I post these new DIY articles. You can use this form to subscribe.
To close, please remember: Take care of yourselves and take care of each other. We are truly at our best when we pull together and take care of each other. Check on your neighbors. Shop for your elderly community members so they don’t have to go out. Maintain social distance, but that doesn’t mean to completely isolate. We still need each other, more now than ever before!
