Where can one buy Natchez Solution furniture polish?

They have a website and also they advertise in magazines, one being Real Simple, which is where I ordered 3 bottles over 7 months ago. I paid via PayPal, but never received the product. I have called and been promised delivery. Nothing. I have emailed and had a promise of delivery. Nothing. I have emailed again, but had no response whatsoever. I do not recommend ordering this solution.

Me too! I have emailed and called with only one response and no product. My account was debited as well - what is our recourse for the money or the product?

I am distressed to read of your negative experience. We use and sell Natchez Solution in our Asian antique furniture store, and really love the product. We deal with the Natchez Solution manufacturer and have always found them reputable. There are several different companies that resell this product over the internet.

You can buy it directly from the company website (see Related Links).

What size round table is needed to seat 10 people?

When planning how many people you are able to seat at a round table, the following are event industry standards:

30" table=2-4 people

36" table=4-5 people

48" table=6-8 people

54" table=8-9 people

60" table=8-10 people

66" table=9-11 people

72" table=10-12 people

If you'd like to be more specific, or are using nonstandard sized tables, a good rule of thumb is to allow 18-24 inches of linear space per person. Based on the number of people you are seating at the table, calculate the total amount of linear inches you'll need per table, then divide that number by Pi (3.14) to figure the diameter of the table you will need.

For example, here is the calculation for the size of a round table for 10 people:

10 guests x 21 inches per guest = 210 total linear inches

210 total linear inches / 3.14 = 66.88 inches in diameter

Based on this calculation, you will need a table that is at least 66.88 inches in diameter to seat 10 people, allowing 21 inches for each seat.

For an accurate estimate, be sure to consider are the width of the chairs you'll be using. Metal folding chairs are typically 17-19 inches wide, while rental ballroom chairs are only 16.3 inches wide. Another consideration is the place setting you'll be using at each seat. If it is an elaborate place setting with a charger and multiple pieces of flatware, then calculate the space needed per person accordingly.

I want to put an lcd tv outside on a wall next to our spa pool i want to built a waterproof cabinet do i put airvents in there for the TV or will i end up with condensation problems?

You will need airvents so the unit will not overheat. But if you put small computer fans that work with the vents you should avoid most condensation issues.

You could also just go out and by a Sunbrite or other outdoor tv.

What is the meaning of a red door on a house?

A red door means "welcome". However, now that I'm getting into a bit of staging, I've learned that there are many meanings to a red front door:

In Feng Shui, a red door symbolizes the mouth of the home. By painting our door red (or any bright colour that stands out) chi (positive energy) is drawn to the house. It is the entry point in which abundance and opportunities find us.

The Chinese consider red to be the lucky or sacred colour. Many doors are painted with a fresh coat of red just before Chinese New Year to invite good luck and happiness. In Ireland, a red door is supposed to ward off ghosts and evil spirits.

In Catholicism, a red door represents that the blood of Christ has been smeared on it and that the area beyond the door is holy and sacred.

Also, according to the Old Testament, the Jewish slaves in Egypt smeared their doors with lambs blood as a sign that the required sacrifice had already been made, and those homes would be passed over by the Angel of Vengence.

Supposedly red doors were used as part of the Underground Railroad, and homes with red doors were "safe houses".

Albert Einstein painted his door red because he couldn't recognize his house without it.

And for homeowners, a red door announces that the house is paid for, free and clear.


How high above a couch should a picture hang?

  • Above the Sofa: That space above your sofa is a great place to hang a piece of artwork that you would like to take a featured place in your room. Try hanging a picture approximately five to nine inches above the sofa - just be sure to leave enough room for people to rest their arms along the back of the sofa. Pictures in their frames should be about three-quarters of the length of the sofa itself.


There is no definitive height for pictures above a couch. However, it should be at eye level for viewing if you are standing. Center multiple pictures in a grouping above the couch.

How do you get dried latex paint out of clothes and cloth furniture?

Getting latex paint out of clothes

Ammonia will get latex paint out of anything. It actually dissolves it so soaking would be in order if it has been dried on for some time. Scrub it ever so often to help the ammonia along.

Do it in a well ventilated area as the ammonia gives off fumes. Be aware of what you are soaking as ammonia can also dissolve some glues as well.

Luckily, it is possible to remove the paint, even if you don't find the stain until it has dried. Paint is either oil-based or water-based (latex), so the steps for removing the stain differ, depending on which type of paint has stained the fabric.

What are the uses of alcohol lamp?

Alcohol lamps serve as a source of heat for laboratory activity.

Alcohol lamps are ideal for laboratories where there is no gas. They use common alcohol to produce a smokeless and residue-free flame. the flame is cooler than that of a Bunsen burner.

An alcohol lamp is a small jar with a special lid that holds a round cotton wick. Most are provided with another lid that fits over the wick to extinguish it and prevent evaporation of the alcohol fuel when not in use. Alcohol inside the jar is drawn up the wick by capillary action and evaporates when it reaches the air. The fumes are ignited, and burn with a temperature of between 500 and 900 degrees F., depending on the location in the flame. Alcohol lamps are normally used when low heat is needed for projects such as woodworking, lab experiments or heating something for a science project.

it is use to burn or heat an experiment in the laboratory

It is used as a heat and light especially when the Bunsen burner is (something like) useless.

Alcohol lamps are usually found in biology labs where they do inoculations of bacteria cultures. It heats the wire loop on a stick that they use to spread the bacteria on the growth medium, which will prevent contamination to the cultures. They are more portable than Bunsen burners but burn at a lower temperature.

Note* I haven't seen these around in a long time, and with the common use of disposable plastic inoculators, they might not be that common anymore.

Where can I find Azalea wood to make furniture?

Check with a local lumberyard - one of the places that only deals in wood and not a combination place that sells bathtubs and hardware.

- - - - -

Azalea is hard to find because the azalea plant is a shrub, not a tree. Your option is to go out in the woods, find some azalea shrubs of large size, and harvest them.
