    Below is a copy of a response to my thread “Home made white glue. . .” thread creep can be problematic in that keeping tract of subjects in an on line forum such as this is not always easy. While diversity is all in many ways keeping a clear path is sometime very helpful as well.

    thanks Adrian

    Same sort of theme: dumping “cotton” and jeans in the mulch.

    I used to make paper by hand and discovered that rags have to be from old clothes to put them in the pulp. Lots of “cotton” T-shirts have a nylon content. Each “cotton” thread is 3 or 4 ply and one of the plys may be a nylon or other plastic yarn.

    Self adhesive envelopes and stickers with those peel-off backs and junk mail with the little plastic envelopes are all no-nos for pulp and compost. That said, there is something perverse about using all those capitalist advertising fliers (not the glossy ones) and flat screen plasma TV boxes for mulching and composting.

    hey Adrian

    Take a look at this. In compost we need not worry about random bits of the current industrial dross it will soon be gone.

    Talking of wandering threads, maybe the Fukuoka photo gallery should be merged into the “Fukuoka” thread. Mea culpa! ;-)

    yes, and did anyone see that what is living in the Chernobyl sarcophagus?? It is fungus. All in all with the things of this little ball of mud getting wilder all the time and things we have been told would never happen happening all the time there maybe hope after all. But still things wont be the same so this is a new type of compost or a new way of seeing compost the thread shredder.

    Yep! I hear the plants and animals in the area that haven’t mutated and died are doing great and no humans can go there to bother them because the forests are off the Geiger counter needle. Nature wins every time!
