The Rb makes it easy for me.
He absolutely will not tolerate colored nails.
I haven't had sexy red nails since 1984.

I'm strict with aromas because I will always remember the lady whose parrot died within seconds of her using carpet freshener. I realise that we weren't so knowledgeable in those days but the incident stayed with me.

I'd say no because of the fumes.
without birds, my life would be sad.

It depends on the parrot and the nails. Do you get your nails done in a salon?

I have gel nails and Chance doesn't touch my nails whatsoever. But, it might depend if your bird picks. If the bird does, then don't wear the stuff. Some parrots are freaked out by nail polish, anyway.

You said "oven cleaner". Am I suppose to clean the oven. I figure since the door is always closed that it does not need cleaned.

:lol: You and my husband are of the same mind! I mentioned to him that now that the weather is good and we can have all the windows open, he could clean the oven (not with EasyOff or anything that gives out fumes but 'green' products and elbow grease but I still want air circulation) and, one evening, I come downstairs to feed the dogs and cats and he points at the stove with a comment like "Look at the oven!". I look and the little window looks very clean so I am in the middle of praising him when I open the door and look inside... he had cleaned the little window and nothing else!
