Sounds like Baking Soda and Vinegar are the basis for most of your cleaning and things to keep yourself smelling noseworthy. :P But the deodorant, isn't an antiperspirant is it?

Simpler solutions

As somebody who's used a drying rack in my home for years, I really enjoyed this episode quite a bit!

I've recently moved into a cabin in Northern California, and find myself going back to older technology and methods of doing things. The Internet isn't as reliable here, so we're making due with what we have.

It's funny how a lack of amenities makes you appreciate the lower-tech ways of doing things. :)
