    i picked up some 50 cent baskets from goodwill, boiled & nuked them in declor, then sewed the top one to the bottom one with a mega needle & thread!!! im not done yet!! i think im gonna have to go back to the little blue water dishes, tho. also at goodwill, i got 2 wooden bowls for waters. once i boiled them, tho, they turned WHITE. it kinda scrapes off with my fingernail... but i dont think i wanna chance it. i just dont know why they turned white after being boiled. anybody got suggestions? i had a terra cotta lid turn white & gooey after i boiled it. i chunked it! whatta you guys think??

    You will have to make sure none of the wood is pine,cedar,or in that catagory of trees. It has a natural pesticide in it and will eventually harm the crabs.
