The tiny beads in facial scrubs, toothpaste and hundreds of other
products are coming back to tie us in the butt.

"the tiny beads, which vary in size but are about as big as a period on
a newspaper page."

Wow.

Lovely! Although I no longer need or use a facial scrub, a good cheap one
is a mix of cornmeal, honey and lemon juice for oily skin. Use avocado
instead of the lemon for dry skin. Regular old sugar makes a good body
scrub. Can add a few drops of essential oil for scent and some kind of oil
like olive, if you have dry skin.

Now that I think about it though... They say not to put oil down the drain
and I do take pains in the kitchen not to do that but... What about
moisturizing soaps and body washes? They have oil. Hmmmm...

And this has WHAT to do with cooking??


It's obvious you didn't read the article and if you did, your reading
comprehension didn't kick in.
