Curtain Color Advice

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

Maybe something with a mixture of a brown, a lighter shade of blue and a little green and/ or a light shade of the gold or yellow would tie the colors together in an attractive way. I'm thinking a contrasting print like stripes, chevrons, or circles or something that would in effect compliment your rug but yet round out the color in the rest of the room. It's a little hard to be specific without seeing your rug design. If it has a busy design, You may want to go with a solid or wider stripe. If It's not so much, than go with a busier option for your curtains. Whatever you do, Make it comfortable and something you like. After all, you will have to live with it and see it all the time.

Asking Mom to Shave My Legs

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

If you and your mother go shopping together, take her to the area where disposable razors are on display? Ask her advice in selecting the best one?

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

I echo those that have given you an answer already. As a mom to girls (2 teenagers & 1 soon to be) I don't always think of these things. We moms are not brain readers. If there is something that is causing more distress any mom with a heart will want to know. Your best option is to in a respectful way, tell your mom how you are feeling about it all and ask her to help you. In turn you are learning valuable communication skills that are helpful in awkward situations. My best to you in these sometimes hard years.

I am a 57 yo american who only shaves my legs and pits 6 months a year, at most, but when you are forced to shower with strangers you need to speak up to your mom, she'll understand. or else just do it, she can't (and won't) glue it back on

Living Room and Entry Paint Color Advice

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

This is a question of personal preference. I will give a little suggestion though. If most of your furniture, flooring,and such is neutral colors, try a splash of your favorite color. Maybe go with a lighter shade of a favorite (like a blue, green, yellow, gray, etc.Whatever your favorite might be) and then with throw pillows or other room decor, add a bold splash of color that makes the contrast of color pop. Whatever you go with, make it your own! After all, you are the one who has to see it every day! Good luck!

Finding Free or Inexpensive Furniture

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

It all depends on where you live. Craigslist is a good start. Also Yard sales, and auctions are good places to find bargain furniture. If it's outdated looking, you can always give it a new look with a coat of paint. I have also found pretty nice used furniture at Goodwill and Salvation Army thrift stores. A little patient searching around can yield a nice piece of furniture at an amazingly low price. Good luck!

Bath Towels Have a Stinky Metallic Smell

there might be too much iron in your water supply. try a softener.

Read More
May 22, 20170 found this helpful

Not sure I would have an answer that would help, but I would like to make a suggestion. It seems to me that you have done pretty much everything that you could think of to get rid of the source. Kudos to you! Now I wonder if maybe you could try soaking and then washing them with a cup or so of baking soda in every washer load of towels for a bit. I have found that baking soda in the wash cycle helps with all sorts of odors with good results. It's cheap enough!... and definitely worth the try!

Read More
May 22, 20170 found this helpful

Well, i will have to say - you have been having some very unpleasant odor problems but I do not believe it is rust in your washer as you just stated you had bought a new washer.

You say that you and your grandmother have the same water source but I'm sure you have different piping from your well to your house. I'm only saying this as I believe you will have to start at the first source of water and go from there.

You have not said anything about the quality of your drinking water so I'm assuming you are not having problems here? I first though it would have to be your hot water heater as these give nasty smells when they go bad but you have now replaced this so it has to be something else. Did you replace the lines from the water heater to your washer? Do you have the same problems whether you use hot or cold water in your wash? Have you changed laundry detergent during this time?

I am glad you are draining your washer and sink to another area as I believe this is a good move (wish I could do this again) but since it seems you may have a very old septic tank (and field? can't remember what you said about this) you may still have a problem sometime in the future and may eventually have to move your septic to another area. I'm saying this because I lived in an area similar to what you describe and due to the age and condition of my septic system, I did have to get a completely new system.

My son will be visiting me later and since he has had a lot of experience (ugh!) with this sort of thing, I will ask him if he has any suggestions for you to try.

We did have some inspectors from our county extension service come to our property and test the ground and they did have some helpful suggestions but this is something to ponder about before doing that.

Maybe someone will come along that has some helpful suggestions.

Dyeing a Red Wedding Dress Purple

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

As someone that works with these fine fabrics, my advice to you would be to only try this if you are totally ok with the risk of it not turning out. Most of these fabrics, including cheaper online ordered and name brand gowns/dresses are dry clean only, or spot clean only. These will most definitely be ruined in the event of dyeing, because fabric dyes must be mixed with water & lots of them Hot water which is very harmful to these fabrics in the first place... That being said; If it is worth the risk to you, Maybe try a little BLUE dye solution (mixed according to package directions) on an inside seam that wont show on the outside of the dress to do a test run to see what color it turns. (RED+BLUE=PURPLE) If you like it, then continue with the whole dress. Keep in mind that the full depth of color may take a few dips in dye solution to get the full effect. Also every type of fabric will dye different with variation of shade and color. Good Luck!

Removing Spray Paint from Formica Tabletop

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are excellent for something like this. There are other brands now too and they can be found at most stores that carry cleaning supplies. You just wet the sponge a little and with a little elbow grease rub off the paint or stain. If there is a thicker spot of paint that rubbing won't get, a razor blade used at an angle that will not gouge the table works to scrape it off too.

Remedy for Pain from Shingles

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

I'm sorry for your pain. There is really not much you can do unfortunately since it is residual nerve pain. In every day language: Shingles are a result of the chicken pox virus lying dormant in your nerves until a stress of some sort triggers it to become active again. Because it now resides in your nerves, this is why you still have so much pain even after the visible sores are gone. There are a few prescription medications that are somewhat helpful and can make you a bit more comfortable for this duration until your nerves have had some time to heal. One is called Gabapentin and is useful for nerve pain specifically from shingles. There are others too. It would be best to see your doctor to find the best fit for you.

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

From Health Line:

Pour 1 to 2 cups of colloidal oatmeal or cornstarch into lukewarm bathwater and soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Do not use hot water. Hot water can worsen shingles blisters because heat increases blood flow. Dry your body completely and then wash your towel to avoid spreading the virus to others.

Removing Nicotine Odour from Walls Behind Cabinets

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

It sounds like you saying the cabinets were installed over dirty nicotine coated walls(?). Do you meant the base cupboards with a counter or/and the top cupboards? Small gap at the top of a drawer (can't figure that out). Do your cupboards have a solid back (and attached to the wall) or is the wall the actual back of the cabinet?

I do not believe anyone has addressed your problem as any of the solutions offered may only be masking the odor instead of eliminating it.

If you can explain just a little more someone can probably help you.

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

This is a subject that interests me because I am allergic to nicotine smoke. Unfortunately it's quite difficult to remove Nicotine odor from walls short of removing and replacing the drywall. I have found that there are odor neutralizing components in simple household baking soda(you can purchase it in a bag in the laundry section at Walmart & other grocery or hardware stores). I scrub with it & then put a little in a screened container/shaker in the cupboard. Borax is also odor neutralizing. I have also used borax to wipe down walls etc., but it is not lasting. Another thing that will continually work at absorbing odor is charcoal. I put a hand full of grilling charcoal cubes in a small open container in a back corner of a closet, cupboard, or whatever. If you want to go to a bit more work, KILZ paint also works relatively well at sealing away stains and odors from nicotine smoke. Good luck!

13th Birthday Party Ideas

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

I have a girl just a little older than you. She just saw a pattern from Hobby Lobby for party decor using handkerchiefs that she thought was really cool. You can sew /or glue or even knot them together to make pillows, table clothes, and banners and all sorts of other things.

One game that is kind of fun is to take t-shirts and bunch them up, soak them with water, & freeze them and then have a relay where 2 teams send 1 person 1 at a time to undo the frozen shirt and put it on. (only good on hot days!!)...

Or you can come up with a treasure hunt where the clues are riddles and end with a special part of your party.(like roasting smores and that would give mom time to get things around for the next phase too)

Basically you will want to give your friends something to do so they have a good time and don't get bored but still be able to laugh & joke or whatever else they do to have a good time. Good luck! ..& Happy Birthday! :)

Understanding Resident Cat's Behavior with New Kitten

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

i agree that your little one should see a vet just so you know this is a healthy kitten (sometimes difficult to tell by just watching) and they will need shots.

You could talk to your vet about your older cat's behavior but it could be a number of things but my guess is on "this is my territory" and that may be all that is the problem. If this is the case then some additional TLC (and not much to the newbie) in that room might be all that is necessary.

This sounds like a personal preference question! It sounds like you have a lot of brown and bronze tones. Have you thought of a contrasting lighter color like cream or beige with the bronze faucet? ...Just a thought.. Black & Dark Brown will most definitely show water spots & other such like a lot sooner than a lighter color or stainless steel. I personally would go with the brown sooner than black because of this very thing, but because contrasting shades and colors look better than all med. shades or all dark shades, etc... (and again personal preference) I'd probably go with a lighter sink.

Removing the Smell of Dog Urine in a Home

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

I had a stench that I could not get removed from dog urine in carpets. I bought Tide Odor Rescue and mixed it with hot water in a Gallon bucket. I used a $1 store scrub brush to scrub the carpet with the solution. The smell left immediately. I'm not sure how long it will last but just to be safe I sprayed the spots with The Amazing Whip It to ensure the smell doesn't return. Whip it works perfectly but costs quite a bit compared to the Tide. I recommend either product to remove the stench. I also used a towel to blot up any excess products. Oh yeah, the stain went away immediately too. They were old stains. Whip is so good you can just spray the stains and walk away. Try either one and give a response. You won't be disappointed

Dog Won't Pee on Piddle Pad After Pooping

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

From Animal Humane Society:

Set up her alone room. When you cant watch her, or when you are away from the house, leave Fluffy in a small bathroom with pads covering the entire floor: leave her some water, toys and some bedding to lie on. Do this for 2-3 days, then take away one of the pads (leaving all the others). In two more days, take another pad away. Two days later, remove another, and so on. The idea is to wean Fluffy off of each pad until there is only one left in the room. If she pees outside of the remaining pads, put the rest back and start over.

It could be a lack of moisture or that the plant is receiving too much light. They like low to medium indirect light. I would change it's location and make sure that you water it regularly. Hopefully, it will make a comeback.

Another idea is to talk to a local garden center to see what they recommend. You could go back to the place you purchased the plant originally to see what they think.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Aphids on Strawberries

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

A fascinating fact is, that ants actually herd aphids, like we do cows and sheep. The ants like to eat a sweet sticky substance known as honeydew, that aphids excrete. They "tickle" the aphids' bellies to make them release the honeydew. They do not eat them. Ants will even move them to new areas of a plant, once the food source is exhausted in that area, and are even known to carry them to other plants for a new food supply once the plant they are on, has died. Pretty fascinating!

There is a hex assembly that mounts on a cast plate that has 4 bearings that slide into position when you pull the rope.

Your best bet is to take the whole assembly off, noting that it loosens the opposite direction that the rope pulls (usually left hand thread.

Make sure you brace the engine from rotating against the steel cast part, not the aluminum fins.

When you have it apart, polish the shaft above the threads. This is what Tom was mentioning that squeaks.

Take the small screws out of the cap, clean inside with the bearings and re-assemble.

Should take less than 30 minutes. You do not need to take anything apart on the recoil assembly.

Replacement Cord for Biddeford Mattress Pad

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

Cords are generally about 1/3 the cost (or more) of a new pad so if your pad is very old or has been laundered very many times, you may want to consider replacing it. These pads also have a warranty so check that out first. You can check warranty at the same site as asking for information on cord replacement.

If you decide to purchase a new electric pad, i would suggest you check for complaints on-line as not all brands are the same.

Biddeford Electric Blanket Error Message

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

There are several things you can try before giving up.

Unplug unit from wall socket - unplug cord from blanket - plug cord back into blanket (be sure it is the proper way as some have a certain top and bottom) - plug unit back into electric socket.

If still getting error message then you may have to call Biddeford for help.

You do not say how old your blanket is but maybe it is still under the 5 year warranty and can be safely repaired/replaced. Here is a link to check warranty information and also a contact number if it is out of warranty.

If your blanket is older than 5 years you may need to check this recall information.

Father Comes Over Unannounced

May 22, 20170 found this helpful

No, it is not right. I have a married son and I'd never, ever barge in on him and his wife. Your father should remember what it is like to be a young couple who wants to be alone at times.

I don't know if you've ever seen the TV show "Sex and the City," but one of the characters had the same problem with her elderly MIL barging in (she had a key) on Saturday morning.

They were trying to have a baby, and one Saturday morning, MIL came strolling into their bedroom................let's just say she started calling and knocking first.
