    Mmm, you've got me thinking now. I could hang things on it or use it to help me get out of bed

    Also of interest-- Bathtub + Black Rits dye + 200 feet of white mule tape = very mad wife (but no black mule tape--caught me, dead to rights, before the deed was done). Contrary to popular opinion, it is NOT easier to seek forgiveness than permission. Again, I suffer that others might live.

    It's funny (and by funny I mean maddeningly frustrating). The Missus (who comes from a long line of ground dwellers, and can trace her ground-dwelling genealogy to the umpteenth generation) regards hanging as frivolous, yet 3 mornings out of five she's sleeping on the diagonal. We're talking 45 degrees sometimes, so that I wake up either with her feet draped over mine, or with a face-full of hair. The woman is a natural born hanger--just add horizontality and the suspension of your choice. But I have a five year plan in place to get her up in the air--the first step is to not let her catch me with any more packets of Rits dye. The second is to figure out how to remove dye rings from her favorite salad bowl .

    Actually, that's exactly what they were for.

    So that "M'lady" didn't have creepy crawlies flying/crawling/biting her in her sleep. The canopy supported the netting and prevented spiders and such from falling from the ceiling onto her. It became very popular with all the nobility over time.

    Sorry KM, should have put a jk at the end. But what got me thinking on those lines is that there is a ring around our largest and most utilized salad bowl (white plastic) from a well-intentioned boy trying not to throw up on the floor. It was a marinara based casserole that has left a lovely orange ring. I'm inclined to toss the thing, but any knowledge you could impart that would save it would definitely get me into the Missus' good graces .

    my first effort would be about 4oz of bleach straight from the bottle, fill bowl with additional warm water, then cover (to keep folks/pets/kids out of it for the duration) then let it soak overnight. bleach is made from diluted HCl, and the unbonding effect H+ has on proteins is pronounced; less so on fibers, but it will eventually reduce almost any organic substance to it's component molecules- it is how I rescue pots with soup or pasta burned on....
    Hope that helps, KM (who is hungry now...)

    Sometimes white vinegar mixed into equal bits of water and crushed ice works, too. It's great for coffee and mineral stains, too.

    @ KM-- I'll give it a whirl (I'll feel better knowing that it's been sterilized)--otherwise its gasoline and a match (jk)

    @ cK--if the stain persists I'll go with the vinegar, water and ice.
