      Once you save an item for later, it becomes a "subscription" or a "favorite". These items are save in your favorites/subscriptions folder in your UserCp, (aka User Control Panel).

      There is a link to your userCP in 2 places on every single page- in the very top right hand corner which says "Settings/UserCP" and also in the very bottom left hand side in the footer.


      You can learn more about subscriptions and saving favorites here:

      i used coffee grounds in my very long hair. i found it a bit hard to rinse thoroughly, so i added a dime size spot of conditioner and combed it through. i do think my hair is shinier!

      i am going to continue and see if i can extend my hair coloring.

      This will stain an item that isn't stain resistant (rugs, some floors, etc) I wouldn't chance it personally

      i use the grounds to fertilize my plants, chase ants out of their ant hills (too acrid for them) & put them on spots where my pups relieve themselves in the yard (helps grass regrow).
