Quite a few of my friends have had colds lately. It's definitely time to wash your hands often. It's also time to decorate our homes for the fall holidays - and here's a project that lets you do both. This melt and pour soap project uses artificial flower petals and/or leaves dipped and soaked in melted soap base. They look and smell lovely, and once you're done, you just toss it into the trash. When you get closer to Christmas, you can change to poinsettia leaves. In the spring, you can use pansies.
