    Because I am not allowed to burn candles in my apartment, I have found reed fragrance diffusers to be a wonderful alternative. They emit even more scent than candles and work for a very long time, and I love having one in my living room and bedroom. However, they’re fairly expensive, and I wondered if I could create my own.

    I have noticed you can buy concentrated liquid fragrance at Walmart for only a couple of dollars. If I bought some regular bamboo skewers and stuck them in a narrow-neck vase filled with some of this concentrated liquid fragrance, would it work as well as a real, more expensive reed diffuser? If this doesn’t work, does anyone know of any other ways to make reed diffusers yourself? Or maybe someone knows of a place to buy cheap reed diffusers? Thanks for any suggestions!

    Hi. I need very thin beef to be cooked fondue style, but can’t get to a butcher and need to do it myself. Any tips or tricks?
