* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Dont know if this really counts but whenever you have a candle holder thats got wax on it (or the last bit of a votive that wont burn), soak the holder in hot water. The wax will melt into the water or just slide right off/out of the candle holder.

I have a question - does anyone know how to get grease off of grill pans? I just cant seem to get the damned things clean!

 
I have used baking soda and vinegar to help me with this. I just let it soak after the baking soda goes away and it really helps get a lot of the grease off for me.

How much should I use (as in the ratio between vinegar and soda)?

Arm & Hammer washing soda works for this too, just follow the directions on the box....

Arm & Hammer is a U.S.-based company, so you might have to look for an equivalent product. (Sorry, I've never heard of "washing" soda, so I can't give you any alternatives.)

Anyone else have any tips or tricks they use for anything similar


Does anyone know how to get rid of/keep away house hold pets (ants, mice, roaches, spiders...) My house is really old and prone to all of these no matter how much I clean. I have small kids and it creeps/grosses me out knowing they are in my house.

I had a giant mouse problem due to a local plague and I got one of those ultrasonic electrosomething plug in pest repellent things. It was expensive and not a "home remedy" but after having two mice getting frisky under a chair I was sitting on and finding mouse shit all over my house every morning I recomend it to everyone who has problems. I haven't seen any signs of mice since the day after I plugged it in. Still get the occasional cockroach but since they can survive a nuclear explosion I figure one oevery few weeks is fairly good.

Liberal semi-\frequent applications of borax around doors etc usually works.

I have small children and a dog & cat, do I have to worry about the boax poisoning them?
