Use Hairspray. Spray, then pat with a paper towel. You will have to do this a few times before it comes all the way out, but it WILL come out. (I tried this before to see if it really did, and it did!)

If you can't sew, or don't have time you can buy these on eBay and Etsy. They're kind of expensive, but should last for years. I just bought a 2 roll package of paper towels for $2.50 at Aldi. These are next on my list of purchases. I already use family cloth, which I bought as cloth baby wipes from Etsy. I got double ply flannel wipes from "Tender Bottoms" though I would buy single ply next time.

There is a "micro-switch" inside the ice maker that controls the external water switch. It is usually the culprit.. There are two switches, one for the rotate of the extractor, and one to momentarily switch the water valve on.. The water valve one is the one that also makes contact with the on/off bar... (inside the end of the ice-maker)

i searched and found a few sets of the same dolls and but no one can tell me if there is a number any where on the dolls body i dont want to take out of box and undress just to search unless i can find out for sure.

ReplyWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

Keep in mind that just because a doll may be fancy, old, inherited, etc., it most probably has little value as most are mass produced in the thousands and very often include the term limited edition in their names. A doll's condition is extremely important in considering value-the best doll prices are paid for dolls literally never removed from their boxes. You can find prices for some dolls on EBay and try online for further research.

I think it is bleeding harts (dicentra spectabilis). The foliage looks like bleeding hearts. The columbine (Aquilegia) leaves are not pointed and they are not deeply cut they have a round shape a bit like shamrock and columbine does not have this bush aspect.

Not shooting star but may be columbine. When you see the blooms will depend on where you live.

How do you defrost the bread? Whenever I use microwave setting to defrost bread or rolls it tastes like mush.

ReplyWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

Powdered milk can taste better when you make some up, freeze it, then thaw in the fridge and shake before drinking it. And you can make it in the small amounts you need.

Or add a little powered milk to your regular milk that you froze and thawed to make it taste better.

Your dog is obviously bothered when you touch the bump so something is wrong. Please take your dog to your vet to check for the possibility of infection, cancer, etc. The sooner the better as some problems can become worse and cost far more in vet costs later on.

Have you considered going to the place or person that you got the certificate from and them issue you a corrected one?

ReplyWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

I would guess the certificate would no longer be valid if tampered with. And I don't see any way of removing gel ink.

Can you consult the organization that issued the document and ask if they can issue another?

ReplyWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

The probability of removing the ink "without anyone noticing" is impossible as there will be some permanent damage to the paper in any ink removal attempt. If this document is important in a legal process, you can consider consulting an attorney for an alternate legal proof of your name.

Harvest every 3 days in the spring when spears are 6 to 8 inches tall and tips are firm and tight. Pick only for two weeks during the first season, extending the harvest a bit each year until reaching about 8 weeks. Consume spears immediately.

I have read that you do not want to cut the spears when they are slimmer than a pencil, as they need some foliage for next year's harvest.

Overspending in September - Supplies for the Secondary Schools

As a middle and high school teacher I see gross overspending in September. Yes, the students cause most of it with desires for new wardrobes and expensive backpacks; however, most of it comes from well-intentioned parents who go overboard with supplies.

For those with vinyl and metal fences, yes you can do this. Use the L bracket like Jennifer used but use the appropriate screws for metal or vinyl. Ask the guy at Home Depot or Lowe's to show you which to use. For metal you may have to pre-drill a small pilot hole before using the metal screw. Don't over-tighten or the hole will get too big.

As a last resort try Gorilla Glue!

I hope this helps anyone out there with this issue. I tried all of the things that were suggested online. None of them worked very good. Still had that lingering odor. The thing I found that does work is go to a sporting goods store (Cabellas, etc) and buy a product that hunters use to remove the scent from their clothing. I bought Scent Killer. You put a capful in the washer and put through 2 rinses. After that I always rewash with my regular detergent and fabric softener. Takes more time but so worth it to have my mothers clothes not smell of urine. Hop

Well, since it usually takes about a week for your post to get on here, your day is over. It should not be up to you to come up with things for him to do. His parents would be "entertaining" him if they were with him, so you may want to ask them what he likes to do and have them supply you with what works.

It is wonderful that you care enough but you are not responsible. He might just have to cry some to make him see he isn't always going to get his own way. In the mean time, relax. If you are called back on a regular basis, have a sit-down with his parents and come up with a game plan. Good luck!

Aggressive dogs are not just the owner's problem. They have the potential to harm or kill other animals, children and people. Now if a dog owner doesn't care about those things they are also open to some big lawsuits. Dogs are wonderful creatures when they are well trained and have nice tempers. If your boyfriend doesn't care that your own pet was killed he isn't worth having as a boyfriend and the dog's behavior must be reported to the police so they will have the record of the dog's behavior.

Having pets also means having vet bills. It is clear that the flea, etc., shampoos are useless against more than a couple fleas. At this point "home remedies" will not work as your dog is well past the point of a few fleas. Please find the money-beg, borrow, etc., to take your dog to your vet for prescriptive treatment. Your other dogs most probably need the same treatment. They are all suffering from a high level of fleas and ticks this year!

This is perhaps a little gross for some but a natural way to get rid of acne is urotherapy. Look it up; ancient cultures used it even for minor cuts and wounds. I'm a senior now but back in my teenage years I had severe acne, mostly on my forehead. It was my old and wise grandmother who suggested urotherapy and within a week my skin was clear. A few times times a day I applied mid-stream pee to my face with a cotton ball, left it on for 10 minutes then washed my face with clear water. Natural remedies are often overlooked and discounted in favor of medicinal alternatives (and associated cost) but are effective and at little or no cost. By the way, urotherapy keeps cold sores at bay too. At the first sign of a cold sore, a dab of urine applied with a q-tip keeps the nasty sore from becoming full blown.

I would like to offer a correction to the answers here. The root cause of the "cloudy" white stain on wood tables caused by hot plates is the moisture that is trapped within the varnish on the table.

This is specially for really hard old reclaimed wood tables (teak, casuani, etc). These tables are typically finished with "oil" varnish or polish and not water. Now I tried everything from hot iron to baking soda and everything else in between. The one thing that made is worse was using a steam iron. That's because with steam it caused the oil polish on the table trap more moisture and it made it worse (like others have also seen if you google). The trick is to get the moisture out. So with a water based finish using a simple iron on low heat works great. However after 4 hours I realized that for oil based polish you need a very hot iron and a kitchen towel. This is very important because unlike water polish with oil polish I realized I need to get the table extremely hot and then it "pushes" the water out of the table (yes you can see beads of it) and the towel should soak it up right away otherwise it goes back.

So to summarize for oil based finishes you need a dry iron at max temp out on a kitchen towel on the table and left there for about 20-30 seconds on each spot and then wipe off the water beads right away. Repeat until no more water comes out. This is different from water based finish. Do NOT use a steam iron on a oil based finish. Hope this helps. Thanks.

It is hard for anyone who is not a Vet to say what is causing your dogs hair loss. But you need to find a way to see a Vet and have him diagnosed. To allow it to continue is likely to make it worse, and harder to fix. Home remedies are hit and miss. You need to find a way to fund your pets care. Perhaps some housecleaning jobs. A temporary fast food job until you have enough for a few Vet visits. Maybe a garage sale. Lawn mowing...Get creative. It is your responsibility to have medical care for your pets when they need it. As a last resort sick pets can be surrendered to the local Humane society for treatment and adoption.
