      Do you know why most crocheters in eeilrar eras held the crochet hook in their hand like a pencil? In the 1800s, this hand positioning was thought to be more feminine and graceful. Many crocheters now hold their hooks in the palms of their hands (often called the knife hold ) to reduce carpal tunnel. I thought this was interesting! Thanks for sharing Jayna:)

      Nicely written. I always have a kettle of water and vinegar on the stove in the winter months, mostly for my sinusitis, which get pretty bad. But the vinegar helps greatly. Knowledgeable hub!

      Nice and useful hub - a few drops of vinegar added to the water in which eggs are boiling prevents eggs from breaking...

      Interesting hub, I've heard of this, but I was wondering a couple of things, is it antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral? What are the properties in the vinegar that make it beneficial? Thank you FortuneRep!!
