Other than it smelling like the bay, the particleboard stuff doesn't seem to have warped as it dried. If that's indeed the case, in theory, I could soak it in a diluted mixture of simple green biodeath cleaner and water to get the ocean/anything growing off of it, then let it dry, and it'll be as whatever as it was prior.

I just found a bag of swedish fish in my pocket. I'm so brilliant! And ovulating. No wonder I was ready to sit shiva for my car, earlier today. Stupid hormones.

:lol: Like visiting Karens. :jam:

I'm so ordering some cavicide, after reading this. I'd photograph what's in the boxes and toss it all, after reading this, but there are a couple of things I should probably take the time to find and soak in cavicide (not books or music, but things from dead people).

http://www.nae.edu/P...aneKatrina.aspx

Not sure what cavicide does to CDs (I'll know within a week. It kills TB and is what we use to clean dental operatories. Not wasting time with simple green.), But I think all my liner notes are tossers. I hadn't heard anything from in there in over a year, and I know people who can help me replace most of it for personal use. Fuck it. I'll deal with replacing everything else when I'm not living in transit at my grandma's, anymore. Not keen on staying there, after what I read. They reopened the dump in Oceanside, in Sandy's wake (we live not far from there). F'ing awesome. :jam: I thought I couldn't hang onto food 'cause I was stressed out. I've gone down a pants size, in the past couple of weeks. Dumbest weight loss system ever!

I have found my clean gene. What a fabulous learning experience. :the icon with one smiley throwing something at another one: Those of you who have seen my organized chaos and are laughing, I'm laughing, too, but I'm so serious. South bay creek water and mold are the f'ing clean makers.

i'm no stranger to floods sarah - a lot more stuff is salvageable than you might think. i'm amazed at the massive amount of stuff
being trashed without even giving it a second thought.

Or 30 minutes from now. Thanks, Scarfire. Glad to get some advice from someone with experience dealing with this particular water. I'll have a hand this weekend. Yee hah!
