Value of an Ashley Belle Collection Doll

Ashley Belle dolls as well as many different similar brands are mass produced which just means there will always be plenty of this type available which brings the value down.

How Can I Make Permanent Lines on a Whiteboard?

February 21, 20180 found this helpful

It seems to me that anything you use, will come off with "wear and tear".

Would it be possible to use anything of your choice for the drawings or markings, then allow it to dry completely, then apply some type of permanent lacquer over the top to seal it? Or even a piece of plexiglass or a clear silicone pad - cut to size - placed over the top to protect the paint or felt pen markings.
The only other way for a 'permanancy' would be to have it basically engraved, then the markings/drawings could be filled in with a putty in the colors of choice so as to be flush with the rest of the board.

Be Careful What Your Bird Plays With

February 21, 20180 found this helpful

I found my cockatiel hanging when a length of string that had a rattle ball tied to the bottom had wrapped itself around her neck while she played with it. Also the little bit of metal inside bells that make them ring can come off & lodge down the birds throats & string can get lodged in the birds crop so thoughtful toys need to be considered .

Making Soft Cookies

Read More
February 20, 20180 found this helpful

One way to do this is to use applesauce instead of butter when making your cookies. You can use 1/2 and 1/2. This will make the softer and keep them softer longer. Or you can do like so many people do and add a slice or two of white bread to the cookie bag or jar to keep them moist.

Caring for a Dog and Her Puppies

What you have described could be any number of emergencies for your friends dog. Any number of them could be fatal if she is not treated immediately. You need to get her to a Vet. You also could try the Humane Society in your area, or a local rescue group. If you cannot pay for treatment you can sign over the dog to the Humane Society and she will be treated. Whatever you choose to do, do it right away, like today.

Finding Source for Free Ostomy Supplies

February 21, 20180 found this helpful

Apparently you do not have insurance or either the co-pay is too much. The first place to ask for help is from your doctor as they should have some samples and they may have a list of places that may be able to help you with this cost.

Please understand, most of these places offer free help to people who cannot afford to pay for their supplies.

February 20, 20180 found this helpful

I have my Dr. write a prescription to the place I order from. My insurance company will then pay their portion of my pouches and skin care. You might also find out if your area has a cancer center. Many times ostomy items are donated from families to help others when their loved ones have passed on. Hope this helps.

Planting Seeds After Using Vinegar for Weeds

It breaks down quickly. You can plant soon after. Id wait a week or two

Read More
February 21, 20180 found this helpful

Vinegar is organic and many microbes will feed on it and break it down. I can't imagine an organic fluid like vinegar hanging around and keeping its potency in the soil after a handful of waterings... Vinegar is also used to lower the ph for some alkaline soils. But is rather ineffective because it doesn't persist in the soil like sulfur. It gets neutralized fairly quickly. I can't image a weeks worth of watering, not completely flushing and neutralizing the effects of vinegar.

Cleaning Nicotine from Walls

February 21, 20180 found this helpful

Spray-9...heavy duty cleaner & degreaser, it can be bought at Menards or homedepot. Nic & tar just runs off the walls & it disenfects. I've did no scrubbing, just wipe clean. I heard whispered by painters & contractors ( there little secret ). I tried it & Lo & behold ! It worked ! Easiest nic & tar removal I've used since 1988. There used to be a specialty product called Nic & Tar off, made by Eco-lab. This product was incredible., Eco-discontinued it in 1996. I've wondered if Spray-9 heavy duty cleaner & degreaser is the same formula. I bought the Spray-9 buy the gallon from Menards .

Remedy for Skin Tags

February 20, 20180 found this helpful

Use the milk from a fig tree. Cut the stem and apply the milk to your tag. Try not go get the milk on your skin, just the tip of the skin tag. Do not get the milk in your eyes and after you handle the stem wash your hands. The milk is an acid and handling the stem alone will cause your skin or eyes to burn. Apply two days in a row and the every couple of days. You will know when you don't need to apply the milk anymore. The tag will get big and red and sometimes bleeds (just a small amount) around the tag. If it looks like blood around the tag do not apply any more milk as the tag will die and fall off in about a week.

Fig Milk for Wart and Skin Tag Removal

February 20, 20180 found this helpful

I have been using the fig tree to remove skin tags for 15 years. Applied twice a day until the skin tag is gone is too often. I have read articles suggesting a dosage of twice a day until the skin tag is gone. It will cause your skin to burn and will itch if too much is applied. Just apply it two days in a row then a couple of days later apply the milk one more time. You will notice the tag get bigger and turn red 4 days after the initial use. You can continue to apply the milk once every two days to assure that the tag will fall off. During use, also apply skin calming itch relief treatment around the skin tag as your skin may burn and itch a little. DO NOT rub the milk in your eyes or even rub your eyes after handling the fig stem. The milk inside the stem is an acid. Handle the fig stem with care and always wash your hands after handling.

Normally it will take 7 to 12 days for the dog to get over the worst part of the disease. This will depend on the dog. Many people treat the dogs at home and this should be fine.

Your dog sounds like he is recovering now and maybe in a few more days you'll see him back to his old self. Just keep doing what you're doing and keep him hydrated. This is actually more important than food right now. He will start to eat little by little and in a few days will go back to eating like before.

Lights in Two Bedrooms Not Working

February 20, 20180 found this helpful

If you have the right breaker and it is turned off the lights should never come on for a few seconds. There should be no electricity running through the wires that would allow your lights to come on when a breaker is shut off.

You will need a volt meter. Now test the positive and negative wires and see if you still have current running through them. If you do then you have shut off the wrong breaker. If you don't, then you'll need to replace the breaker at your box. There is a short in the breaker and more than likely it is burned. When you remove the breaker out of the box it will be easier to examine it.
