Determining Cleaning Rates

January 28, 20200 found this helpful

There are two schools of thought

1) charge by the square footage. IE a common formula in Dallas TX is charges 5 cents per square foot for standard cleaning and 10 cents per square foot for deep cleaning. (from here -
www.thumbtack.com/.../house-cleaning-prices)

2) an hourly rate. YOu can either charge $15 to $25 an hour, depending on whether your area is served by a Merry Maids or other corporate outfit that undercuts small business operators or not, as well as general competition

the advantage of price per square footage is that in theory if you work fast you can earn the same as an hourly rate and optimize your time. And possibly clients would like the idea of a fixed price, regardless of how long it took you

Treating a Cat with Worms

January 28, 20200 found this helpful

it is really probably best to use the medicine that can be bought OTC at a pet shop. It probably wouldn't cost much more than buying supplies for natural/DIY products that might not work

even so, there are people who say natural things can be done:

some of the advice given is:
- pumpkin seeds
- parsley water
- diatomaeous earth
- wormwood water

Cats can have several different kinds of worms.
Petco or PetSmart may be able to help you as they usually have a vet technician that you can talk to.
They will probably want a description of the worms as well as the age and approximate weight of your cat.

Some county Humane Societies have a vet that will deworm animals for less money than your regular vet. Try calling them to see if they can help.

Using Coffee Grounds on Indoor Begonias

January 28, 20200 found this helpful

coffee is best for plants that do well with acidic soils, and also are good for vegetable gardenings. Specific flowers have specific needs and begonias are not known for doing well with that specific type of compost

a good thing to do with coffee grounds is to start an all-purpose compost pile in the yard with it - throw out coffee grounds, food scraps (but only vegetable matter and eggshells and no orange peels), and yard wastes (leaves, etc). This in a few months becoems really good soil for all plants

Read More
January 28, 20200 found this helpful

Begonias do best with peat moss based soil. No coffee indoors or out.

Coffee works well in compost where it is mixed with other things to get a more neutral food for plants.

I would not use it directly for any plant. That is just me, others may have better experiences.

It is so acidic that on its own it can damage most plants.

Coffee grounds work better in a outside environment, mixed in with other soils!

Read More
January 28, 20200 found this helpful

It is not highly recommended to use coffee grounds on indoor plants. The grounds can encourage fungus growth which is dangerous to your plants. If you want to do this do not add a lot of ground to your plant and do not water the plant unless the soil is very dry.

Training a Pit Bull Puppy

January 28, 20200 found this helpful

aside from neutering him right away, the best tip is to exercise him a lot. I mean, a lot. I mean, an hour a day of strenuous walking, if possible.

with this sort of dog sometimes they behave better when you put a little bag on them, because then they are 'working' and have an outlet for nervous energy.

Your dog is developing habits you need to stay on, 7 months old and mounting ,also the aggressiveness and barking. Talk to your Vet for options before he gets out of control with the other pets!

January 28, 20200 found this helpful

You should actually get him fixed right away. As for the cat if he was friends with another cat he might want to try and be friends with your cat. You need to be consistent with his training and when he is bad to stop him and talk with him to let him know his behavior is not correct. it will take time to work with the dog nd teach the dog. If you are having some otherissues you can check into hiring a trainer to help you out.

You need to go back and speak with her about what she has done. If you are not happy with this then she needs to fix her mistake and make it correct. You have paid a lot of money for this perm and you should get what you want. You can try damping your hair and using your hands to squish it up. I mean take some of the hair at the bottom in yuour hand and then move up and get more hair then squeeze your hands. This one can help to bring it back into shape a bit after it was combed. I did this one and was told to use a pick and not a comb.

Collecting Back Child Support if Parent is Deceased

January 28, 20200 found this helpful

Pro Bono attorney can help with your questions, etc. There are regular lawyers who also do Pro bono, a free service for going to court and working on your behalf. In our area, several lawyers do this when one cannot afford their services. They still do their legal representations as usual with pay, but will also oblige one who cannot pay. You can read up on such legal help online and get some good information. Make a phone calls, but most will want to know what your situation is about first.

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

I do not believe anyone on this site would think you deserved any negative responses.
Your case is too complicated for anyone on this site to offer any suggestions other than to state that you will have to have legal help to receive any money for the time you did receive support.
You should seek legal aid as soon as possible so the attorney can put in a claim against any money received from the sale of the houses or any other areas where there may be money in the father's estates.

If you cannot afford an attorney then you should contact the Family Services/Legal Aid office in your city. They will help you get free or low cost legal services.
This should be done quickly because once the money is allotted you may not be able to place a claim.
Do not worry about what paperwork you need as the attorney will explain what they have to have for your case.

Though I'm not a lawyer I think you have grounds to receive benefits from the estate due to costs incurred in the upkeep of these poor children, especially considering the special medical costs.

As far as it being a moral issue, sure. You are entitled to feel entitled to receive some compensation for raising neglected children who are not yours. The important thing is that a judge or lawyer feels that way too so that you may receive compensation.

Identifying a Geppeddo Doll

January 28, 20200 found this helpful

This company makes millions of these dolls each year because they actually mass-produce the dolls. It is so hard to find the exact doll your are looking for and let alone the name of the doll. I know many people try to contact the company for more information but the company never seems to answer them back. Your only hope to find out the name of your doll is to watch the eBay auctions or dolls for sale and look for your doll online. I am so sorry but this is almost impossible to tell you the name of this doll. Maybe another person here might know the name and can help you out but I searched for a long time and never ran across this doll at all.

Removing Nail Polish from Clothes

January 28, 20200 found this helpful

Wow! This worked for me!! I had a spot of dried red nail polish on the back of my very light color, down filled nylon jacket. The polish was 'dry' before I put on my jacket.....apparently Not dry enough.
I mixed a couple drops of dish liquid and about a quarter cup of white vinegar. With one end of a q-tip gently worked it into the spot. Then used the dry end of the swab to draw out the stain. I also held a dry piece of dry kleenex on the underside of the spot, inside the jacket, which also helped draw out the polish. It took about 10-15 min, but that annoying nail polish spot is Gone! Rinsed it with a little water, blotted dry with a clean towel and poof! Jacket like new. Thank you So much for this great tip!.....thank your husband for his chemical knowledge!

Value of a Mersman Coffee Table

January 28, 20200 found this helpful

On Esty, the prices are rather high for this item. People are asking for different style table around $250 all the way up to $525. This table was made around the 1950s and normally sells today for around $100 to $175 depending on the supply and demand of the item. Listing any item on Esty or even eBay takes quite a bit of time to sell the item. It is better to try and sell the item locally on Craigslist and you can start off at the higher price and see what people offer you for this table. You can always adjust your price if you are wanting to sell the table.

Recovery Time for a Dog with Parvo

The bloody diarrhea is scary. It seems to be a regular part of parvo. You are doing the right things. It is most important that you keep in touch with your Vet when there are changes, like the diarrhea. You should be able to do a phone conversation with your Vet. You may want to consider another trip for more IV fluids. The dehydration is what is so hard on the dogs. The 1st week is usually the worst. And your dog may not feel well for a couple weeks.

Normally this takes anywhere from 3 weeks to a month and a half to get over this illness.

They wanted to make sure he would eat before releasing him. If you are worried then you may need to ask the vet if they can care for the dog if you are having issues taking care of him alone.

Selling Vintage CorningWare

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

The most profitable thing you can do with these is to travel back in time to 2005, back to the time when a person actually could make money off selling high quality items on eBay before the market was oversaturated.

I'm joking of course.

These are great dishes and SOMEBODY wants them. Sure, someone can find one at Goodwill for a small amount but that's a crapshoot. Someone can also get them on Ebay but pay $10 shipping and run all sorts of risks

The best thing to do is simply advertise on Craigslist or join facebook buy sell trade groups in the community and wait for whoever wants them. $10 to $20 a piece is what I would start with.

Hi! Great Corning pieces. Classics. They are easy to sell on eBay, if you want to start small, they are good and consistent sellers at 5-25 dollars, each.

Be sure to wrap these very carefully with bubble wrap, then in box 1, put that box in a bigger box with at least 2 inches all around. In that space be sure to use extra bubble wrap or foam peanuts. Double boxing like this is the best way to prevent damage in transit.

Weigh the box and put the measurements in eBay so the shipping is accurate. This is very important to do. Never let eBay calculate shipping for you. It is always wrong.

Please be aware there are false click bait stories on the internet saying these pieces are worth thousands of dollars. That is totally false. The sold auctions that show these high values are either money laundering or schill bidding by the click bait writers. Please don't get mixed up in those lies and fake ads.

The true sold values are those under $25. I feel terrible if this is not what you wanted to hear.

Like I said, if you have never sold on eBay before, it is good to start with small sales like with these items to get experience and feedbacks. Post back how it goes.

You can sell on facebook locally to cut back on shipping. You can also do auction/bid sale because this piece does not go for much $10 to $25.

Calculating Bread for Appetizers

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

If you are only serving appetizers you should calculate 10 to 15 pieces for each person. I am not sure how small or large the pieces of bread you'll be using but this is a good amount. Just remember people will eat more if it is a buffet style party and the appetizers are not passed around on trays.

Do you see a name of the company who made this cabinet? All I am seeing is the design number on the back of the wood. You need to give us a bit more to go on. If you can't find any other information on the cabinet it is time to seek help from an antique shop in your area. They normally can identify items such as this.

Identifying and Determining the Value of a Doll Collection

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

This one is a very difficult question to answer you. There are so many of them and the dolls vary from collectors dolls to mass produced dolls. In order to find out the value of the dolls we need to know who made each one and the markings on the back of each dolls head. I would suggest finding a doll appraiser arund you or even online to help you out in this one. There are so many variables in this that it is hard to determine what the real value of all these dolls are worth.

Cigarette Smoke Odor Coming from Condo Below

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

If the smoke is getting into your condo from the one below you will need some professional help to get this one fixed. You may need to hire a company to come out to seal the floors and anywhere else smoke is seeping up from the condo beflow it to your condo. You may want to ask the owner of the condo below yours if they allow smokers in their unit or not. Let them know what is happening and maybe the owner can talk with these people. Other than this speak to the HOA and see what can be done.
