Re: Re Hanging
In a bag sealed, or in a container with a lid that screws on it would be OK to soak overnight. Nothing that can spill though ;-)

Re: Fibre
The best fiber comes from whole foods..... Just remember that the fiber that comes in drinks like this can cause cramping and explosive issues until you get used to it.

Re: a true instant whole grain hot cereal
You can do ANY whole grain by cooking and dehydrating, then you have instant. While oats can be ground down to make instant, other grains are much harder on the stomach and need cooking.

Re: Squashing startups
Actually Just Mayo uses modified food starch as a binder. It isn't as scary as it sounds - it is just corn starch that holds up in processing with heat (canning), ie Clear Jel and similar.

Re: Swedish lip balms
Peanut oil....that **** is evil. If anyone wants a great all purpose oil, in winter, just use coconut. Virgin coconut oil that is. You can use it on almost anything....
