This is a much cheaper option that works well: GermGuardian

If you smoke next to it, no smell.

u/SuperAlloy · 72 pointsr/AskReddit

"when the door is closed there is an airtight seal all the way around" This. I had basically the same problem of neighbor smoke in my apartment. I used a combination of an airtight door seal, in my case a hippy curtain hung over the door, and an indoor air filter. Doing this basically eliminates the smoke odor, and if the filter is off and I smell smoke I turn the filter up or down accordingly. There are fancier air purifiers on the market that do a better job with smoke, but the honewell has a true HEPA filter and a carbon pre-filter which do a good job with no ozone.

Neighbors who smoke inside suck big time. If you live in an apartment and you smoke inside, your neighbors hate you, please stop, kthxbye.

u/sr90at405 · 44 pointsr/Cooking

I resigned myself to less searing. More stewing. Baking. Etc. Opening window when weather permitted at all times. Using a twin fan, with in/out for airflow in window such as this. The crockpot was my friend. So was sousvide. Experiment with raw dishes. Limitations only expand your palate and skills, my friend. Edit: Also, grease in the air is one of those things that traps scents, so if your decor is minimal and has limited fabric, or fabric that you can air out, that helps. Clean as much as possible.

u/jmkiii · 43 pointsr/HomeImprovement

> There are also white noise machines that can help drown out noise...or sleeping with a fan blowing on your face can function the same way.

This. Go get a loud air filter. This is by far the easiest solution.

We have several of these we've been lucky enough to find at Goodwill. They are awesome. You'll only need one for noise. Put it right next to your bed.

u/Gmhausk · 43 pointsr/Frat

Question comes up every year.

Drop some money and get this bad boy

And cool down your basement beforehand. It should be an icebox before people get in there.

Stop letting large people down there as well. They create a lot of heat.

Our old basement we couldn’t create an airflow, but if you can you should

In the winter use your airmovers to pump in cold ass air

u/[deleted] · 28 pointsr/pics

This is why you can't afford an air conditioner.

You waste $60 on this ghetto rig instead of saving it and buying a proper air conditioner.

u/piratelax40 · 25 pointsr/learnprogramming

small portable space heater like this less than 20 dollars and put it right by your keyboard to blow hot air on your hands?

u/ConceptualTrap · 25 pointsr/gaming

Damn, where do you live? That's absolutely ridiculous.

I can't see how that's possible unless your AC unit is horribly inefficient.

Running this AC for 8 hours a day, for 3 months, and paying the national average price of $0.12 kilowatt per hour shouldn't cost more than $50. That's $50 for the entire 3 months.

If you're paying an extra $400 a month, there's something seriously wrong with your AC or you're paying for your neighbors AC as well or something.

u/s0rce · 21 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I have this oil filled radiator:

It was great in my cold chicago apartment. Basically silent.

u/HingelMcCringelBarry · 19 pointsr/gundeals

Probably not bad if you're ordering something anyways and want to add it on, but if you really want one of these I'd pay $15 for this:

333 cu ft versus 48 cu ft means spending a lot less often pulling it out of the safe to recharge.

u/macbooklover91 · 18 pointsr/onebag

A lot depends on the style you're looking for. I'll also say that security in a bag is a myth. There are things to discourage certain behavior, but ultimately a bag should never be seen as a secure container. (after all it can always be cut)

What I chose.

I traveled for about a month in Europe staying in hostels. Even though it was only a month I could have traveled for about a year (adding only a tablet) with the bag/things I brought.

Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack - $150 (Discontinued)

[Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack

  • $160 (New Version)](

    I love this bag but it might not be the single best option for you. It's low profile, turns into a duffle bag (more about that later) and although it doesn't look like a school backpack, it doesn't standout like this either.

    The reason I love that it turns into a duffle bag is because theres a semi hidden velcro pocket in the bottom where the cover rolls into. This is a great place to sew or velcro a small zippered wallet or bag to store extra money or valuables. It's not secure as much as its hidden. This won't help you if they steal the whole bag, but it will help you if they just ransack the place and steal from the open compartments.

    Other Options

    There are a ton of other options. I suggest watching the VagaBrothers Video - How to Choose the BEST Travel BACKPACK | Pros & Cons Minimalist Backpack Review and Travel Tips: Packing Hacks, Tips & Essentials

    The F Stop bags look great, but are pretty pricy. Depending on what lenses you're bringing (18-55mm kit lens VS 70-200mm VR f2.8) it may or may not be worth it for size and configurability. I personally bought a Sony a6000 and left my big DSLR at home. That was actually a really good choice for the type of trip I did, but if I was going for a year (like you are) I understand needing the big camera. You might want to get camera/lens inserts like this (but not necessarily that one, I just clicked on the first one I saw on amazon) to store and protect those other lenses.

    Hope that helps.

    The following is copy and pasted from an email I sent to family friends traveling abroad. It gives links and ideas for things that help when traveling minimally.


  • 2 Mini cologne bottles - Well worth it if you are doing carry on only, or if you like to bring more than one scent with you. Depending on how much you use I find that a bottle filled up lasts about 1.5-2 weeks if you are using 2-3 sprays a day.

  • World power adapter - Awesome adapter. A lot nicer than the 50 mini adapters you have to piece together like legos.

  • Power strip - I never used this. I wouldn't get it unless you knew you needed it. They are good ways to make friends at airports though, as plugs are always in high demand and few people will say no to letting you free up a plug or two.

  • Battery pack - (updated version) OR While there are cheaper and smaller ones, this is the perfect size and capacity if you are bringing a couple or more devices. This will charge a phone many times over. It's especially handy if you want to leave it charging in the hotel then bring it with you during the day after it's charged.

  • Compressed charcoal deodorizers - Great to throw in shoes or bags that start to get smelly. Useful in hostels.

  • Microfiber towel - Very useful for hostels as most will charge you to use towels

  • Tripod - paired with a phone mount ( this can be used to hold the phone on long flights. Really nice for watching movies on the plane or waiting for a train.

  • Roll up 1L water bottles - Great for airplanes (no longer need to buy water after TSA).

  • I packed all of my clothes into cubes and a flat packer.



    Since I was traveling alone, and in hostels, security was a slightly bigger deal for me. I carried my passport on my person or locked in my hostel (many had lockers or metal lock boxes).

    At all times I had a photo copy of my passport and everything in my wallet, some local currency, and a print out of all the embassies in the area. (Attached to this email.) I printed this double sided and had multiple copies with me.
    I told my mom, "At any time I want to be able to have everything stolen, but still have a way back home.” My credit card will do cash transfers internationally and also includes a continuous travel insurance package.

    I would highly suggest making three copies of your passport and all credit cards and other ID you are taking. One lives on your person when your passport is stored elsewhere (hotel, for example), one lives in your luggage (preferably hidden/tucked away), and one stays with a trusted friend or family member that will be in the States for the duration of your trip. If anything happens they will be able to assist with proving your identity to the State Department, thus speeding the process along. I suggest keeping some cash tucked in your passport (along with that embassy list), your copy of the passport in the luggage, and then the copy of the passport and embassy list in your wallet. At this point you have three possibilities of things to grab to prove your identity/pay for a cab/tell you where to go.

    While this may seem a little overboard, I find it doesn't take that long to set up and helps greatly should anything bad happen. Also consider registering with the State Department. This helps them track Americans abroad should anything happen, and also gives you alerts, should anything happen.


    Tech Tips

    I also used a service called Line2 to give me a US phone number to call from and receive calls to while I was away. I have T-Mobile that gives me included unlimited international data. As long as I had a 4g signal, I also had a phone I could make and receive calls on. Google Voice and Skype would also do this. Do be aware of how much international data costs. Wifi is easy to find, but I suggest using a VPN on your phone or laptop for any web surfing. And even with the VPN I would not suggest logging into any financial (bank, etc) while abroad unless you are on a trusted wifi network (aka, friends).

    For maps you can download parts of Google Maps by searching the city and clicking “Download." This should work on Android and iOS versions of Google Maps.

u/couchmonster · 18 pointsr/eastside

Try a portable A/C unit, no need for permanent installation. You just run a hose out a window.

I use this one:

u/erock7625 · 16 pointsr/HomeImprovement
u/taterbot15360 · 15 pointsr/vandwellers

Here it is:

They claim 3-8 weeks before needing a charge, unless my memory is wildly mistaken, I didn’t get anywhere near that length of time. But it’s in a small closed space with one to two mouth did the job just fine for me though. Rarely woke up with moisture on the windows.

u/stoavio · 14 pointsr/AskMen

This can be dealt with.

Here are a few options to consider. First, Zinc will help with the stink. You can take a Zinc supplement AND use a topical ointment on your feet. If you decide to take a Zinc supplement, don't take it everyday and be mindful of your copper levels. OptiZinc has copper included although you want to supplement even a little more. The ideal zinc-to-copper ratio is 10:1.

  • Boudreaux's Butt Paste Maximum Strength Diaper Cream

    This works very well because it contains 40% Zinc. One of the highest you can find. I've used this on my feet with success and I've even used it on my face before to help with complexion issues and it never dried me out. I think using daily on your feet would be fine although I wouldn't recommend putting it on your face every day. You can find this in Walmart in the baby isle (where the Pedialyte is located). Start with a small amount and rub it in. A little goes a long way with this stuff, you don't want your feet feeling greasy all day.

  • Crystal Body Deodorant Stick Deodorant

    I bought this because I was looking for safer deodorant options. I was amazed at how well it worked on my armpits (much better than traditional deodorants containing aluminum) and the upside for you is, it even specifically mentions being used on feet to treat foot odor. I haven't done that but I imagine it would working swimmingly.

  • Nature's Way Chlorofresh

    This product is along the same lines as BodyMint, but much cheaper. It is typically used to deal with bad breath that originates from odor created in the gut, but it has also been used to treat general body odor as well. I recommend starting with the top 2 recommendations first but considering this can be tried for only ~$7, it may be worth just adding it to your odor fighting stack.

  • 10-Seconds Deodorant & Disinfectant

    I was told this is the product that bowling alleys use to disinfect the bowling shoes. I bought a can sometime ago when I was running and wanted to keep my running shoes from getting rank. I can't find it right now but I seem to recall a warning about harmful/caustic chemicals coming into contact with skin so use this one carefully if you decide to try it. You should be disinfecting your shoes anyway since it sounds like your issue could be bacterial or fungal, seeing as it spreads so rapidly to new shoes.

  • Drymax Run Hyper Thin No Show Socks

    I got these for running and I love them. They are super light and are made from a breathable mesh. The thicker your socks are, the more likely your feet are to get hot and begin sweating. These are a bit expensive but you can think of them as an investment that pays dividends.

  • Mini Moso Natural Air Purifying Bag, Charcoal

    These are designed to naturally remove odor. I keep them in my shoes when they're just sitting in my closet. I assume they are working because my shoes don't stink. They are cheap and got good reviews on Amazon. Check 'em out.

    In conclusion

    I believe if you are washing your feet thoroughly, making sure your socks are clean and your feet have some Zinc ointment rubbed into them (or the crystal deodorant applied) and your shoes are properly disinfected and dry, I think you will see an appreciable reduction in foot funk if not a complete eradication.

    Good luck.

u/occupy_voting_booth · 13 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

You really have to give some kind of indication of what you like or what you already own. Or at least what systems you have.

In lieu of any real information in your post here's my suggestion:

Because it's summertime and hot outside. You can even spend the rest of the money on a cheap game on sale once we know what consoles you own.

u/bubonis · 13 pointsr/ferrets

I'm sorry to hear about your fuzznoodle. :-(

  • Treats. Spoil him rotten. Most ferrets that I've encountered have love for things they shouldn't have like peanut butter, honey-nut Cheerios, and raisins. Don't skimp on the FerretVite or FerreTone.
  • Build a (sterile) dirty dig box. Use bagged topsoil to create sterile soil, load up a large plastic bin, and let him go nuts. He will create a huge mess and will likely be engaged for a long time, but he will find it endlessly entertaining and won't want to leave. If you're lucky (and he's got the energy) he may even create a small burrow in/under the soil.
  • Physical contact. Pet him, hold him, carry him. I have a small hip bag that's specifically designed to carry a ferret, and a quick look on Etsy shows similar contraptions (plus a "neck bag" that's sort of like a scarf with a ferret-sized pocket in it). Let him sleep when he wants and don't hold him if he wants to run around, but let him know you're there.
  • Introduce him to new or rarely-seen environments. My ferrets live in a playpen/cage environment but every once in awhile I bring them into the living room and they go nuts from being in the new space. Let him run around a place he's normally not allowed in (provided the space is safe for him).
  • Make sure his sleep space is dark, warm, and comfortable. If he sleeps in a cage, drape a heavy towel or blanket over it to keep light out and warmth in. If the cage is in a drafty area, set up a small personal heater outside the cage to gently blow warm air into the covered cage. My ferrets have this one outside their cage which keeps things toasty-warm. They adore it.

Collecting games and systems can be a very exciting and rewarding hobby. I would start by picking a collecting goal before embarking on this journey. Here are some items to consider.

  • Do you only collect games that you want to play, or do you want to include other criteria?
  • Do you want to collect from a single region or all regions -- such as only NA copies.
  • Just the game disc, game and cover, CIB?
  • Are you including Special Editions and cover variants?
  • Where are you going to store your collection? (Don't overlook this item and it's impact on your partner and housemates.)
  • Are you looking for promotional materials, posters, and other Wii-branded tchotchkes?

    Here are some links you may find helpful.

  • Spare Game Cases. You may find it easier to by a dozen or so and keep them handy. You may find the perfect game, but the case is ruined, has a sticker on it that won't come off, or it's just the wrong case, but the rest is fine.
  • The Cover Project. You may find that some games have missing covers. This side has a repository so you can print off Game Covers for many games and regions.
  • List of Wii Games. The fine folks at Wikipedia have curated a list of Wii games from across regions. You can peruse this list to help your formulate your collecting criteria.
  • Silica Gel Packets. I keep these stored with games packed away in boxes. Humidity is a silent killer of retro games -- Disc rot is real!
  • Mini Dehumidifier. I keep these in my enclosed bookshelves.

    Good luck and have fun!
u/Fluttermun · 12 pointsr/AskVet

Is it at all possible to purchase a portable heater and stay at home with your cat until everything gets sorted? I know we had some portable, pluggable, heaters that worked wonders in the house I stayed before my apartment. We had zero insulation in this old house and a shitty built in radiator system so those portable heaters were a godsend.

Check Amazon! You might find a deal around this time of year.

Edit: This is the type of heater we had, it really did warm up a decently sized room and I think it'd help ya'll out for a short period and then you'd have something just in case things get messed up again.

u/lobster_johnson · 12 pointsr/AskNYC

An oil-filled space heater like this is very safe. There's no exposed heating element. You can keep it on indefinitely.

u/Jovet_Hunter · 12 pointsr/AmItheAsshole

Has she considered alternatives? Are you in a legal state? Are edibles an option, or capsules?

Vapes are a good option to switch to. They are very concentrated and last a long time. If you get a smoke buddy it filters almost all of the waste so the scent is nearly nil. Then, if she does feel the need to take a toke or two in another room, she can do so away from you with no scent to trigger you.

This is a difficult place to be in, because you have a rare disorder and most individuals can use marijuana for medical or stress relief usage in moderation without issue. The alternatives for them are not as safe or side-effect free, so it’s not just that you are asking her to quit. You are asking her to find a less-desirable and perhaps more dangerous for her stress reduction method. The best outcome would be if you can tolerate her using in moderation, and she can tolerate not using in your presence. If the two of you can begin from there, you can move forward.

I bought an ozone machine on Amazon. Worked great to remove odors from my car

u/sirblastalot · 12 pointsr/fursuit

General Storage:

Get a big storage box, one of the ones that looks like this. (Not recommending that particular one, just an example of the style I'm talking about.) You'll probably be traveling with this, for furcons and such, so make sure it fits in the trunk of your car and/or meets the requirements for a checked bag on your airline of choice. I also highly recommend getting one with wheels so it doesn't take both hands and brute strength to move it around.

Head Storage:

Get one of these styrofoam heads, and keep your fursuit head on it. I got one for a buck or two from a nearby Ulta. This will keep the inside in shape. If your real-life head is bigger than the styrofoam one, you can bulk it out some with duct tape and scrap cardboard. Wherever you keep your fursuit head, make sure it's not squished at all. If your box is big enough, you can just leave it in there. I keep mine on top of a bookshelf.

Bodysuit Storage:

You want to hang your bodysuit up. If you fold it, the fur can get kinked, and it will never brush out soft and smooth again. I use one of these wetsuit dryers, and I highly recommend them. It's made for holding heavier clothes than a regular coat hanger, the shoulders are rounded such that you won't stretch it the same way a regular coat hanger would, and, most importantly, it has a built-in fan in the top of it, which really helps your suit dry out before it can get funky. Which leads me to suit care...


Getting your suit dry after you use it is really really important. Get a cheapo desk fan ( I have one of these ) and put your head on it after you wear it. (Without the styrofoam wig head inserted, of course.) Hang the bodysuit up (ideally using the wetsuit dryer mentioned above) and lay the paws and miscellaneous bits out where they can dry. Never EVER just take the suit off and leave it in a pile, or stuff it in your box. Stuff will grow in it right away, and you will stink to high heaven.

It may be overkill, but I also keep some of these desiccant packs in my box, just to make sure it stays dry.


Get a little spray bottle from a drug store and fill it with a 50/50 solution of rubbing alcohol and water. Whenever you take your suit off, spray every surface down with this mixture, especially the inside. This will help keep unpleasant things from growing in it. Don't use undiluted rubbing alcohol, because it will actually evaporate too quick to finish killing everything. Don't use febreeze, perfumes, or other sanitizers. The febreeze and perfumes will just (badly) mask all the nasty smells without killing the source. Other cleaners can leave residue, and most of them you really, really don't want to be breathing in the next time you wear your suit.


You'll want to brush your suit after you wear it, so that the fur doesn't get kinked and you don't look mangy. Get a wire cat brush and run it down the fur with the hooks facing backwards, such that they don't catch. You'll still pull out a little fluff, but it shouldn't be real bad, and you'll end up yanking out a lot more if you let the fur get matted anyway.


Washing fursuits is hard, and to be avoided if possible. If your fursuit smells noticeably, you need to wash it, but if you're letting it dry and spraying it with alcohol, you can go a long time before it needs to be washed. Everytime you wash it, you'll inevitably lose a bit of the fluff.

Anything with foam in it is going to be problematic. If parts of your costume are just fur fabric, you can machine-wash them. Washing temperature depends on the fabric your suitbuilder used; consult them, or the store you got the fabric from. Turn the pieces inside-out. To dry, you can machine-dry them on NO HEAT/AIRDRY, or you can hang them up to dry. Never use a dryer with the heat on; it's pretty easy to melt the fur together, ruining the suit. You may be able to get away with the 'low heat' setting, but it's highly dependent on your dryer and the fabric, and I don't suggest risking it.

Pieces that contain foam should be spot-cleaned. (Get a damp washcloth or something and just dab the insides, rinsing the washcloth out repeatedly.) If that's not enough, you can submerge them in your bathtub and do some cleaning there, but don't do so if you don't have to. You run a good chance of messing up your head if you submerge it. Also, it will take a very long time for foam to dry; spray it with the alcohol and use whatever fans you have around to expedite the process. Never machine-dry any foam parts; they'll likely break from the tumbling.

u/dildusmaximus · 12 pointsr/Mushrooms

I don't have an ID for you, but if they are growing in your house, that probably means the mycelium is eating the wood in the walls/floor. This is bad for many reasons, main one being your house is literally rotting away. Get some bleach/lysol/any heavy duty disinfectant, and clean the area very well. Soak it If you have too. If you don't have one already, it'll be a good idea to get a dehumidifier and leave it running for a few days to completely dry out the area. After that, keep a boat size tub of damprid in there to help prevent moisture in the walls again. If they keep growing, you'll need to get a professional to rip out all the rotten wood and replace it all. This will be expensive. Try not to let it get that bad.
Best of luck!

u/_BATCAT_ · 11 pointsr/SeattleWA

Can you afford to buy a free-standing AC unit and an air cleaner or three? That would be my first choice for a course of action.

Otherwise, maybe take a trip to somewhere with a hotel that has AC and allows dogs?

u/Excelius · 11 pointsr/pittsburgh

It really depends on the design of the house, too.

I grew up without AC, but it was a single-story house beneath a gigantic shade-tree. It got warm inside, but fairly tolerable with some fans.

Then I moved into a two-story house without A/C, and without any shade. Heat rises, so upstairs retains a lot of heat. My upstairs bedroom would get to 90 degrees at night and I would be absolutely miserable and unable to sleep. Even if night-time temps would drop into the 70s, it would stay in the upper 80s in that room, even with the windows open.

I eventually mitigated the issue with one of those in-window fan units, to exhaust the hot air and pull in cool night air. Simply opening the windows did nothing, even putting a fan on a table in front of the window did nothing. The in-window unit at least managed to cycle enough of the air to equalize the indoor and outdoor temperature.

u/alcareru · 11 pointsr/guns

>leaves it in his closet corner

No exactly ideal, depending on your region in the country. Pick him up some of these or something similar for Christmas.


M44. The original officer filled out the form wrong.

>getting a good cleaning soon though

Good. Don't try to scrub off the existing corrosion for now. Make sure it goes into storage with a good coat of gun oil.

Eventually, you would probably like to take the barreled action out of the stock to inspect the rest of the corrosion on the piece, and re-oil the underside of the action.

u/ellifino · 10 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I’m sorry you’re going through this. If I were you and had the ability to do it, I’d invest in a few of these HEPA purifiers , or something like this.

You’d have to figure out delivery or pickup, but depending on your budget, I’d run as many as I could. They are loud, but should help.

Also check out air scrubbers. They move much more air, I’ve just never bought one.

Edit: try to seal off all openings at your house and only use one door. Make sure your weatherstripping looks good. They have plastic film that you put over windows (the whole window frame) that you heat up to seal air inside it during the winter. I’d do those too.

u/l2pkdude · 10 pointsr/malelivingspace

> HEPA air filter

Something like this?

I'd need it for every room tho right?

I 100% need a humidifier in my room at all times because of how dry my room is.

I don't control my heat since it's a super old building :(

u/PlausibleDeniabiliti · 10 pointsr/StonerProTips

Smoke Buddy and Ozium will eliminate all odor. Have you tried using a vaporizer?
The odor is minimal and when used with a Smoke Buddy and Ozium, you can vape within your apartment with closed windows and nobody will smell anything.

Edit: Here is a graphical representation

u/Effimero89 · 10 pointsr/LifeProTips
u/tekniklee · 10 pointsr/cars

I bought this one on Amazon and have used it in 3 cars now. One of them was for my 16 year old and was really dirty and smelly so it took 2 treatments but it smells so clean now! Takes a week or so for ozone smell (which smells clean) to wear off leaving NO smell.

Also inherited some tools and the soft tool bags smelled like smoke (really strong). Put them in a big container with the ozonator and good as new.

u/masahirob · 10 pointsr/HomeImprovement

This works great for $70.

Be sure to remove plants, pets, and yourself while it runs.

u/jford16 · 9 pointsr/trashy

I'm not talking about a shitty homemade sploof. Something like this should conceal the smell pretty well. There's a different brand that has replaceable filters, but they're a bit more expensive.

u/MidnightMemoir · 9 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Haha I've used my fair share of homemade sploofs, but they really don't work that well either, just makes your house smell like weed and dryer sheets.

But thanks for bringing sploofs up because that reminds me of the smoke buddy. It's pretty much a professional sploof that actually works. You can make these at home too just like you would a regular sploof except you put some activated carbon in the tube and it does a pretty good job.

u/binderclips · 9 pointsr/AprilBumpers2018

:( That does sound hectic. My registry is kinda all over the place because I've already bought a ton of stuff, but just some suggestions of some things (FTM so no idea really if these are good or not, some were recommendations from friends, some were recommendations from various online resources).

  • car seat, extra base if you have more than one car, and stroller
  • baby carrier - I got the ergobaby 360 with infant insert but the Lillebaby 360 is also super popular.
  • swaddles - aden & anais seem to be hugely popular.
  • bathing supplies - washcloths, bathtub
  • first aid kit supplies - NoseFrida, nail clipper, thermometer
  • feeding - bottles, sterilizer (some people told me I had to have it, some said it was totally unnecessary), bottle cleaner brush, drying rack (seems like everyone else loves the Boon grass, but I don't have the counter space!) You can get a pump through your insurance if you plan to breastfeed, I ordered mine through Aeroflow. I ultimately chose the Spectra S2 over the Medela PISA because it's a closed system, which apparently means less chances of bacteria getting into the system and thus easier cleaning.
  • burp clothes - I was told to just get a ton of cloth diapers to use as burp clothes, and to have them everywhere.
  • diaper pail - I have two friends who say this is good enough, so I went with it. They also said to use doggie poop bags to contain the smelly diapers.
  • humidifier
  • Boppy for nursing
  • Backpack style diaper bag
  • baby may need a more convenient place to be set down other than the crib, something you can have near you in the kitchen, shower, whatever. Popular options are the rock n play, Boppy lounger, or a pack 'n play. I plan on getting the Chicco FastAsleep pack 'n play because the crib/dresser/changing station is on our 2nd floor, so I figured this could double as a changing station/napper on the first floor.

    Lucie's List is probably the best resource I found online.

  1. Get a good soldering station in the 40 - 60 Watt range look for Weller, Hakko or Aoyue stations.
    Even thier basic models will last a lifetime and will make your soldering 90% easier.

    Your Iron heats constantly with 30W, if you touch the solder+components and board, the temperature will drop below the melting point of the solder. A soldering station is heat controlled if the temperature of the tip drops the station will pump more power in the heating element and the temp will stay constant.

  2. Use lead solder, it needs lower temperatures. BTW lead free solder is not healty either.

    You need to take care of the fumes, keep your wokspace well ventilated! If you can get a cheap PC cooling fan (120mm or more) put some Cut-to-Fit Carbon filter behind it (at least 2 layers) and make a stand with a wire coathanger ( i have an old mini tripod works great too)

    Build a few solder dispenser pens (wear gloves) I use pens with metal tips.

    Or you can buy a fume extractor and a dispenser.

  3. Clean your soldering tip, it will last a lot longer (but you have to change them) and work better. Most soldering stations come with a cleaning sponge if it is not a metal one you need to add some water.

  4. Get soldering flux, the liquid one is nicer but usually more expensive.

  5. Get a pcb holder, or glue a pice of thin foam onto cardboard or better plywood. Put your some of your components on the pcb put your foam board on top fixiate with two rubberbands turn the whole thing around and viola, you can easily solder multiple parts.

    Some video tutorials I can highly recommend:
    EEVblog Soldering Tutorial Everything you need to know.
    NASA avionics grade soldering procedure seems a little over the top at first but every step is explained in detail and if you ever have a project that goes into a moving object like a car, a robot,a drone or an art installation it is absolutly worth the extra time.

Get a couple window fans. Put them at opposite ends of your apartment and set one to blow air in(shade side of the building) and the other to blow air out. That will get air flowing though the apt/condo.

Hopefully that helps :)

u/musicims · 8 pointsr/HomeImprovement

That's quite the situation. Quotes to undo what's done are probably going to be huge and finding someone willing to sort it all back out will probably be even harder.

I would take this opportunity to install an HVAC system that is much more efficient, or at least start planning for it. Radiant ceilings are woefully inefficient. Mini splits are a great option if the home is older and ductwork would be difficult for Central air.

In the meantime you could get a handful of these to buy yourself some time

Thing to remember is electric heat is only as much as the wattage. So a 1500w radiator will be able to make the same amount of heat as a 1500w fan element heater no more no less it's just how it does it. I like the radiators because once they're warm they keep the heat retained and cycle as needed, also no noisy fans. If you go this route just be sure that your home electrical is up for the task of running multiples of these, find out which outlets go to which breakers and really only put one per.

Good luck, as far as I know there's really no quick fix for what you got going on so try and do it right and not worry about it again as long as you live there

u/rathat · 8 pointsr/StonerProTips

Ok, the following allows me to take huge bong rips in my room and there is no smell at all.

Buy a smokebuddy for less than $8, it has a double filter in it, a HEPA filter, and an activated carbon filter.

Load only enough in your bowl for a single hit at a time, that way, absolutly zero smoke goes into the air, breath out through smoke buddy.

u/CosmicRuin · 8 pointsr/astrophotography

I thought I would share my observatory build, after sharing on a previous post - it has really been a continual project over the past two years!

Photos of the build and finished observatory

A built a small footprint backyard observatory based on the design and supplied parts from Dan's Pier Plates called the Motel o' Scope. The base is attached to the concrete pier (12") and the removable latched lid attaches to an aluminum frame. It has survived almost two full years without issues, and two Canadian winters - this winter in particular has seen a lot of snow and -20C nights! I have a small ceramic bulb heater on a thermostat that keeps the inside around 5 degrees. My mount, scope and PC live outside now permanently.

It's an ingenious design really! The cover is latched in four places, two each side, and I added weather stripping and vinyl flashing over the bottom edges to prevent any rain running inwards. The scope is parked facing up, and the cover just lifts up and off, which I set on a tarp during use. I've had no issues with leaks or wind damage. To control the humidity inside (an issue during the Summer especially) I keep two Eva-dry Silica Renewable packs. They keep the humidity around 35-40%.

The aluminum hardware at the bottom clamps with rubber stripping under pressure against the concrete pillar, using long bolts/nuts - so it's easily detached if you ever needed to disassemble and remove the base altogether. There's a sealed board as a base surrounded by T-slot extruded aluminum framing. The actual cover is made of 1.5" hard-foam insulation board from Home Depot, and wrapped in Dacron fabric, primed and sealed, and painted with a UV reflective white acrylic paint - same sealing materials and processes used on small body winged aircraft.

Dan's Pier Plates that makes the Motel o Scope hardware, also sells the pier mount plates. He provides all of the custom aluminum hardware to build the cover brackets and base. You do need to source the other materials yourself, like the foam board - he provides a detailed parts list, and was very helpful to deal with.

u/impecuniousyouth · 7 pointsr/college

Is your apartment unfurnished? If so you will need some basic furnishings:

  • a table
  • some chairs to go with that table
  • comfortable seating of some sort- possibly a couch (a futon is nice if you are going to possibly have guests sleep over) or love seat or upholstered chair of some sort
  • a TV if you feel like you want one (optional)
  • a bed and a mattress and some bedding and sheets (obviously)
  • a bedside table (optional)
  • somewhere to store your clothing if your room does not come with a closet already

    As far as basic living supplies go:

  • 4 spoons, knives, forks
  • mugs
  • 2 dinner plates, bowls
  • some knives for cooking
  • cutting board
  • mixing bowl
  • spatula (HEAT RESISTANT) and turner and spoons for mixing. Also possibly a whisk but really you could usually get the job done with a fork
  • cheap set of pots & pans
  • a cookie sheet
  • a fan is usually useful for some airflow
  • microwave if this is already not included
  • books just for fun
  • cleaning supplies: shower cleaner, clorox wipes, swiffer, toilet cleaner, dish soap, windex
  • plunger & toilet brush

    School supplies in college are pretty basic- you don't need much, but depending on your major this could go waaay up or down. But as far as I'm concerned your basic supplies are as follows:

  • laptop (optional- there are always computers everywhere anyway, laptops are just convenient)

  • notebooks and folders OR binder with looseleaf paper, depending on your organizational preference

  • stapler

  • pens and pencils (I like to have two different colors for pens)

  • calculator (if you will be taking math courses- go for scientific because a lot of the time graphing is not allowed)

    Things to consider:

  • Will you be paying for wifi and/or basic cable (if you want a TV)?

  • Is your lease for a year or X months? If it is a year, will you have to sublease while you're away for the summer (if you are going away)?

  • How far from campus do you live? What does the general area look like? Are you going to have to take public transportation different places? Know the area.

    I know its scary, but living alone is great, and studying in a university is really not a huge deal once you get into the rhythm of things. You'll do great, kid.
u/ItsBrianOnReddit · 7 pointsr/Homebrewing

This is the gold standard for a lot of us:

Best thing I ever did was to build a BrewPi and install that heater in a chest freezer.

u/somethin_brewin · 7 pointsr/Homebrewing

You may be right. If it got cold enough, you could have frost in a line or faucet. That'll make a nucleation point and draw a lot CO2 out of solution.

You could add a little heater to the fridge and set it with a temperature controller.

u/Dude_Hold_My_Bear · 7 pointsr/EtherMining

Looks like I left everyone hanging with an explanation of how this is setup.

I am using a twin reversible window fan that is connected to an 8 to 6 inch stepdown venting pipe. From here, I am using 6 inch dryer vent to a 6 inch stop.

I used 4x8ft foam insulation to create the box. It's super light and pretty durable. I taped all the edges of each piece after I cut it because I had styrofoam balls everywhere. After I taped the edges up, I attempted to glue the sides together to create the box. That turned out to be a waste of time and tape would have been sufficient.

Finally, I use the fan to create negative pressure in the box. I put "feet" on the corners to raise the box 2 inches above the ground, but they stick in a bit and it sit on the corners of my rig. I went with negative pressure as I figured it would be more efficient than anything else.

The piping gets warm and my rig is running a couple degrees warmer than they do out in the open, but my office isn't 100 degrees anymore. In fact, it works pretty well as my office might be a degree or two warmer overall with the door closed.

u/Alopixgg · 7 pointsr/aww

But the more you vacuum, the fewer allergens will be in the carpet to be kicked up(unless you're allergic to the actual carpet.) And the air filter that you should be using if you have allergies, should get anything kicked up by the vacuum out of the air.

u/agoristbastard · 7 pointsr/microgrowery

Hey, I JUST came off building a setup and it cost me $750 total. We have 3 plants in there right now. I have the entire list with amazon links or store suggestions.

Item| Price | Where To Buy
Tent| $95| We bought this one, I don't know if it's worth spending a lot on anything more expensive. For a smaller option I just got a second with good reviews but can't vouch for it yet.
Lights/Hood/Ballast| $140| I got the 600W set, but 400W would make cooling MUCH easier and still get a big yield. For LEDs at similar price, Viparspectra 300W x2 or a single 600W eliminates need for extra cooling potentially (not included here, we used fans from around the house)
ph Test+Control Kit | $25| GET THIS. The water must be pH'd properly for your babies' health.
Cloth Pots| $20 | These are better for aeration, water flow, training, etc. Cheap and reusable too.
Nutrients | $50 | I got the Fox Farms Trio, but there are many good options out there.
Fan + Filter | $150 | This is huge and might be overkill for you. Make sure whatever you get fits your tent vents (This one fits the Apollo tent above with 6" vents).
Ducting | $20 | Connect fan to filter, to tent, to wherever. Might want multiple sizes, check tent vent sizes.
Foil Tape, Metallic | $10 | Here. Metal Duct tape is best duct tape.
Fan Speed Controller | $20 | Useful for if you do get a fan that is slightly overkill!
Fox Farms Ocean Forest | $15 - $40 | You can buy it online and I did for my first 3 bags....then I found it in a local store for $15. There is some controversy with FF lately, it's not organic FYI. There are tutorials on making your own soil if you care, but I like this because I didn't have to use nutes for 3-4 weeks.
Humidifier | $30 | This is the exact one I have. We're in winter so I need it to keep humidity up, you may not.
Dehumidifier | $40 | There are plenty for this much. You may not need this either.
Cal-Mag | $20 | I haven't needed it yet but it's best to have on hand if you do!
Seeds | $75 | I bought from Attitude, chose stealth, and bought like 15 seeds?, so it was expensive. You can get seeds for less.
Jiffy Pellets | $10 | Used to start seeds. There are other options.
Total | $745 | If you buy all this stuff, you have potentially even more than you need to get started, with room for 3-4x more plants than these boxes, and with nutrients to last you for a long long time!

Hope this helps! I'd hate to see you drop so much on it when you don't need to at all.

u/Bulky_Bear · 6 pointsr/Drugs

Get an herb vaporizer (like a Magic Flight Launch Box). Much less smell, especially when used with a sploof or "SmokeBuddy"

u/GreyBeardEnt · 6 pointsr/asktrees

Buy him a smoke buddy:

Back when I smoked cigarettes, a roommate didn't like me flicking the butts into the flowers so she bought me an ash tray. Classy way to get your point across and well worth the $10.

u/cosmosopher · 6 pointsr/StonerProTips

I agree, but I feel having a reasonable solution to offer would help. Recommend your neighbor use a wood pipe with a hinge lid and a SmokeBuddy carbon filter. Just these two steps should eliminate enough smell to keep it from seeping over into the apartment.

u/cerrasaurus · 6 pointsr/AskNYC

I am selling one that I bought last year because I was gifted a more powerful one when my friend moved to Denver. It's this model.

Selling for a very reasonable price because my apartment is small and I have nowhere to store it. I need it gone.

PM me for price. I'm sure we can work something out.

u/questfor17 · 6 pointsr/howto

Assume we start with ice at 0C (32F) and warm it to water at 18C (64F) over the course of 5 hours. If my math is correct, bucket cooler will cool at a rate of 300 BTU/hour. If the fan is running at 10 watts, that is about 35 BTU/hour of heat. So net, we get 265 BTU/hour from this kludge.

Or I can buy a real A/C unit for $129 that generates 19x more cooling (5,000 BTU/hr). If the bucket and the fan cost more than $7 (which they will), the A/C unit is cheaper (per unit of cooling) to buy, and will consume less electricity (per unit of cooling) than the bucket. It will also be quieter and much less work to operate.

u/culiseta · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I'd consider this. Black or white. Very good for office settings. Only 200 watts, just to maintain a warm breeze.

u/jforres · 6 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I use these odor eliminators in any shoes I wear without socks and they make SUCH a difference. I have one set at home that I pop into my shoes as soon as I take them off and one set I keep in my shoes in my gym bag. They're great!

I also have something similar to these which add comfort and can go in the wash. But mine only work with sneakers - they wouldn't work with flats that show the top of your foot.

u/Backonredditforreal · 6 pointsr/gundeals

I should’ve clarified and said “for now” regarding the size haha. Tactical guns are hard to fit but otherwise I have 8 guns on one side and 4 on the other but those are all tactical guns so they take up twice as much space.

If you need help with moisture, I use these in my safes for ammo and guns.

Since I’ve been buying them, this looks like the third gen.

I also use pistol hangers which help immensely. The ones I got were $7 for 4 at the time but are more now. They’re a great cheap way to help with organization.

u/jasongill · 6 pointsr/Tools

on a more serious note, you need to get Zerust capsules and put them in your toolbox/drawers. A dehumidifier (especially one with a gravity drain to outside, or a pump to drain it automatically) in the shop helps quite a bit, too.

You need to get the humidity down. Even a dessicant canister or one of the renewable dessicant canisters will help

u/TheTrixsta · 6 pointsr/SpaceBuckets

I second this. This is what I use to filter my 3x3 tent.

VIVOSUN 4 inch Inline Duct Booster Fan 100 CFM, Low Noise & Extra Long 5.5' Grounded Power Cord

And just used a hose clamp to clamp a piece of the carbon filter over the intake of the fan. So it sucks air from the tent outside. Keeps my tent at perfect temps and scrubs smell.

u/TheWalrusCometh · 6 pointsr/StonerProTips

Don't use dryer sheets. Buy cut-to-fit carbon filters and then duct tape them down the intake side of the fan.

u/burtgummer45 · 5 pointsr/LifeProTips

You can try something like this exaust fan

The good ones can let you set the fans for different directions, so one blows out and the other blows in.

I have two of the ones I linked to, they are pretty good. Having a remote is nice, and having an automatic setting with a thermostat is highly recommended.

u/omgwtfishsticks · 5 pointsr/malelivingspace

It's the home that smells and you can't fix it since it's likely due to the age of the floors and walls but you can address the smell in your living area with an air purifier. They work incredibly well removing household smells, but I find that the charcoal filters (which do the best job at eliminating odors) wear out pretty fast. You may need some other recommendations in finding an ideal filter for this environment. Painting and a deep cleaning with may help.

u/leftnose · 5 pointsr/photography

The bag you link will not protect against humidity and the results mold and mildew.

A dry cabinet is a good idea, especially if you live in a humid climate. If you're in the Arizona desert, maybe not quite useful.

Dry boxes are super easy to DIY. Go to the Container Store and get an airtight box that's big enough to hold all your gear. Think giant tupperware.

Buy one of these put it in the box, keep the box closed at all times and you've got what you need.

u/benlucky13 · 5 pointsr/FullTiming

if it's just humidity collecting, they do sell rechargeable dehumidifiers like this

does not need any power to absorb moisture, takes about 10-12 hours to 'renew' the absorbent material by plugging it in to a wall outlet. it uses a tiny heating element to dry out the silica gel for the next use.

u/paperclipgrove · 5 pointsr/MPSelectMiniOwners

There are lots of options, but for just getting started I suggest:

Hatchbox PLA 3D 1.75 mm. This particular one is black, but get the color(s) that suit your fancy!

I suggest this one because:

  • PLA is easy and forgiving to print with and doesn't cause crazy fumes. (Still print in ventelated area though). If this is your first experience with 3D printing - stick with PLA for at least a spool or two!
  • Hatchback hasn't given me issues yet. Good quality.
  • Price is Right
  • 1.75mm fits the standard nozzle the printer comes with.
  • Hatchback was my first - so I'm irrationally attached to them

    There are dozens of brands of PLA and most of them will work just fine. Feel free to experiment. I use $20/kg as my standard "this is an OK price" limit for standard PLA

    Be more mindful when switching material types. PLA is forgiving, but hates heat/sun. Its also not overly strong. ABS is apparently strong, but a pain to print on these monoprice printers (requires high temps) and the fumes are toxic. Wood was fun - until it clogged my nozzle. Apparently you need a larger nozzle to print wood without clogging frequently. Whoops!

    Anyways, when getting new filament:

  • Get a different color/brand because it's fun or it fits your needs. Variety is the spice of printing!
  • Get a different material type (PLA/ABS/Nylon/etc) when your print requires a different type of material. Research the material requirements first to make sure your printer and setup can handle it (heat/ventilation requirements).

    Side note: store your filament is a dry place. 3D material tends to absorb water from overly humid air. When the filament does this, it doesn't print as well. I keep mine in air tight storage containers with one of these Renewable Dehumidifiers

Stainless can still rust, though not as early. In either case, if you take care of your guns you'll be fine. No need for stainless unless you just like the aesthetics. Clean them after trips out in the rain, fog, marsh etc to get moisture out, then store them in a dry place. If you're really worried about it get some gun socks for $5 a piece and a dehumidifier of some sort and throw them in a closet. I just bought a couple of these ones that are well reviewed. I plan on putting one in my gun closet for extra rust prevention, though I wasn't having a problem with it anyway. The others are for a poorly ventilated bathroom and backups.

u/u_got_dat_butta_love · 5 pointsr/ZeroWaste

I have a very similar compost bin. It works alright for our household (me + partner, cooking moderately often) although I wish I had gotten one slightly larger because it fills up faster than you'd think. It wasn't especially problematic that it was 'small' because I worked at a farm and could easily dump it 1-2x per week as needed. Do you have a place where you can conveniently empty your compost bin? If not, I'd look into that first (some farms or non-profits in your area may have composting programs if your local waste management system doesn't support compost).

Something else to consider is buying carbon filters in bulk. You can buy pre-cut ones but I found it much cheaper to buy a sheet of cut-to-fit carbon filter material. If your compost starts to stink, it's probably time to change the filter. You can prolong the life of your filters by not overstuffing your bin and allowing the filter to come in contact with food waste.

TL;DR - With 4 people in your house, you may want to opt for a bigger bin. Find a place to empty your compost if you haven't already. Cut your own replacement filters.

Edit: Just reread your post and realized you're in college. You could check with environmental campus groups or the university farm (if your school has one) about composting programs.

Nylon will help some, but I find natural fibers breathe better. And don't consider your shoes ruined! Try some activated charcoal shoe bags first to eliminate the odor!

invest in an AC fan and use the thick hakko carbon filters. this combo does magic at cleaning up the air and keeping fumes away from your face. also: if you decide to buy the genuine hakko fume fan, know that it has limited power (20cfm) and that you need to bring the fan right up close to your iron for it to be effective.

personally I use a hakko fume sucker that I've upgraded with a 110cfm fan.

Best thing to do is clean everything thoroughly with an All purpose cleaner. Meguairs D101, 3D Orange Degreaser, Optimum Power Clean bunch of others to pick as well just these come to mind. After do 2+ hours of a ozone machine Amazon Ozone. I use it for my business and its works great. For the last 30 or 15 minutes (Or if you think it's really bad turn AC on at the start) turn the car on and turn on the AC and circulate to flush the AC system. Once its done open the doors for 15 minutes letting it air out.

u/LazyGrower · 5 pointsr/microgrowery

I have a 1000w and this is what I have gotten to after many hours of pain and grief:

  • Have the bottom vents open on the left and right side
  • Have one fan for light going fast
  • Have one fan for the carbon filter going slower
  • Insulated ducting on the lights for heat and sound (on carbon filter for sound)
  • To mix the air properly I have an expensive fancy floor fan in the corner shooting air straight up. Think of how a ceiling fan works better than a box fan in a room. I am replacing this fan with 1 or 2 cheap light-weight fans that I will hang front left and right. The fans will hang just above the canopy high enough not to affect the light footprint.
  • Having the fans shoot up means I don't have the fans directly blasting air onto the canopy and the air goes through the canopy to the floor. This works much better than blowing directly on the canopy and having a supplemental fan under the canopy when the tent is full.
  • For heat I have gotten a Heat Bud Personal Heater and an Inkbird controller for when the tent goes below 65.

    These are the fans I am waiting on:

I can open the garage door almost as far as 4 feet tall, but no taller (for privacy reasons).

What should I do? For example, do I:

At a minumum I would: Buy multiple 4lb buckets of Damp-rid ( Make sure all interior vents are closed and set to recirculated air. Each day pour some fresh Damp-rid into a large 5 gal bucket placed in the vehicle, then seal all the doors and windows and let the vehicle sit. Every 24 hours, open vehicle, dump out bucket, and repeat. I wouldn't stop until it wasn't collecting any noticable liquid anymore. I suggest being careful to never leave the vehicle parked with any windows open, and continue to keep a Damp-rid in the vehicle indefinitely in attempt to continue to combat mold growth, especially if you live in a high humidity area.

There's many things you can do... my top of the line suggestion is Ozium.

You can:

  • Open up a window (If you're on the top floor, this is a godsend since smoke will dissipate UPWARDS. The neighbors underneath won't notice shit.)
  • Invest in a vaporizer as it will drastically cut down the smell.
  • Buy an air purifier

  • Buy a Smoke Buddy/Make a sploof
  • Buy lots of incense

    And if you seriously want to kill any odor whatsoever, it being probably the most expensive option is an Ozone Generator. Basically an unlimited version of Ozium.

    If you're feeling extra ballsy, just blow your smoke into the apartment hallways so now there's no way to tell who's getting a good bake on.

Snap up this open box one like mine:

You can "warranty" it as needed by buying new, swapping parts, return. The vendor doesn't get hurt as the manufacturer refunds them.

Only problems we've had are hard water. But it's a small inconvenience for the small price.

I just clean it with a screw driver and don't mess around with vinegar or solvents.

My father in law bought one of these and he can't stop raving about it.

That setup will really lower the effectiveness of that unit. If you need more cooling capacity you might want something like this. (Dual hose units are far better than single hose units)

Maybe something like this?

u/MoJoSto · 4 pointsr/askscience

you might also try Glycerol, but that's likely about the same viscosity as Mineral Oil. I think in terms of low volatility and still bacteria resistant, ethylene glycol (antifreeze, with or without water) would be your best bet.

You may also be able to try doping your water with a salt to keep it from evaporating. Fully saturated Calcium Chloride won't evaporate (the calcium chloride actively draws water from the atmopshere). It almost certainly wouldn't grow anything, though as a downside, if its flowing, salt crystals may creep out of the solution on to the walls of your container (especially if its really concentrated).

I would recommend any of the wide mouth, plastic fermenters. IMO they're all pretty similar. They are so easy to clean. Just make sure you only use a soft rag or sponge. Don't use anything remotely abrasive.

Heating Element

I use this guy. But that's only for heating the entire chamber. It doesn't put out a lot of heat, and I haven't tried using it in the full harshness of winter, with temps in the single digits. I like the heat belt idea, but most of my brews are 10+ gallons split up into multiple fermenters, so I try to keep the entire ferm chamber the same temperature.


Two suggestions: Those Blichmann gloves look better than what I use.

But also, consider sparging instead of squeezing. I suspend my brew bag above the kettle, and I do a super lazy "sparge." I just have room temperature, pH and mineral adjusted water on hand. And I just pour it slowly into the top of the brew bag.

It sounds like a terrible technique, and maybe it is. But my efficiency jumped quite a bit once I started doing this. And I don't have to screw with squeezing a super heavy, steaming hot grain bag over my head.

u/banksjh · 4 pointsr/Homebrewing

I use this 200 watt heater from Amazon.

I'd be worried about using anything higher wattage than this in such a small space. I think hair dryers can pull well over 1000 watts which is a serious fire hazard in such an enclosed space.

u/Unacceptable_Lemons · 4 pointsr/DIY

Yep, we used to have one like this:

but ours was a different brand, "Sharper Image" I think it was. You still had to take the dust catching part outside once in a while, but it sure caught a lot. Assuming you have no major source for new dust, I'd imagine one of these in a medium/small library room would help quite a bit.

u/emskow · 4 pointsr/treedibles

I always follow the ediblesonly recipe from the sidebar. Really works! Always decarb first. There are many methods and variations to decarbing, but I usually just wrap my broken up buds in tinfoil and bake it at 230 degrees in the oven for about 30 minutes. The end re^sult should be brownish green and crunchy, dry to the touch. With a mortar and pestle, I pulverize the bud then transfer it to a mason jar with the coconut oil/butter, throw it in the crock pot with water in it at 195 degrees and let it stew for three hours. Take it out, let it cool, then freeze. I usually repeat the process again sometimes twice. Good luck and Happy cooking!

Edit: just saw you want to be smell free, which I have tried before with no smell. Simply skip the tinfoil method and put the broken up buds inside the mason jar you'll be using and increase the time of decarbing. Keep the fans going in your house and I would highly recommend investing in one of these air purifiers:
I smoke inside my apartment with this running (where we had to sign a clause to not smoke inside) and it leaves my apartment smelling brand new when I have it running for a few hours after smoking. It really helps, especially when wanting to make edibles!

u/Javin007 · 4 pointsr/DnD

The setup was STUPID easy. You attach the door knob, then just follow the instructions (videos are available online) to "level" it, which basically just involves: 1.) Putting a piece of paper on the screen. 2.) Pressing the "home" button. 3.) Lowering the platform a tiny bit at a time until there's "resistance" on the paper enough that you can't push it back in. 4.) Tighten the platform with the provided hex wrench. 5.) Hit the rezero button. Whole process takes maybe 60 seconds. What's more, it seems like once you've got it locked in, even removing and replacing the platform doesn't screw it up.

For tips:

1.) A lot of people bitch about the slicer software that comes with it, and say to use the ChiTuBox. I tried this, and it jacked up my first prints. I don't recommend it. I ended up going back and installing the software that comes with the Photon, and it's perfectly fine. It's not great at auto-strutting, but you can add struts manually to "low" spots.

2.) So far, the most reliable "auto-strut" settings I've found are 30% "light" struts. Literally ALL of my medium / heavy strutting (haven't gone above 30%) have failed and fallen into the vat. 30% light seems to pretty reliably do the trick, though.

3.) Obviously this is going to require some tweaking based on the temperature you keep the house, and which resin you use, but I'm sticking with the clearish green that comes with it. Go with a 4 layer base, at 50 seconds, then a 7.5 second "light" with a 3 second "off". Finally, the layer thickness is 0.025mm. Those are the settings I used for this model. Makes for a slow print, but clearly seems to get the job done. If your temperature is colder, you may have to go with a longer "off" and "light" setting.

4.) Definitely start with tiny test prints. Get some calipers to make sure everything is sizing correctly, and verify that the text is oriented correctly. I wasted a stupid amount of liquid trying to do a big print off the bat.

5.) Use some fingernail clippers/files/buffers to remove and then polish off the "nubs". If you break them off by hand, which is easy to do, they can "pit" your model. (The pits can be fixed by adding a tiny dab of glue and re-curing, but it's more hassle.) If you use a razor blade, you can cut the files/buffers into thin strips that allow you to do detail buffing work.

6.) EVERYONE online complains about the smell of the resin. Get yourself a good window fan (this is the exact one I bought) and put the printer in front of it with the fan blowing the air out the window and you practically won't notice it. Just make sure the rest of the window is covered well enough that sunlight doesn't shine through trying to cure any of your liquid.

7.) Their software will give you a print time estimate, but always seems to be short by roughly 25-35%. So if it says 6 hours, give yourself 7.5-8 hours for the print.

8.) Do... Not... Get... The... Resin... In... Your... Eyes. Wear glasses at the very least, but you should probably keep gloves on, too. I had washed my hands, and hours later touched the corner of my eye, and that burned like hell. I'd imagine even a small drip in the eyeball could cause ulcerations. Water doesn't seem to wash it off very well, either, so even flushing your eyes with water won't stop it immediately.

9.) If you have additional money to spend, buy a decently powerful blacklight, and cut a hole in a box big enough for it to shine into. Then line that box with aluminum foil. It's an extra one-time expense, but the hassle of waiting until you can get enough sunlight to give your models a good cure makes it well worth it (especially here in Virginia where all we're getting is rain, sleet and snow.)

10.) Again, if you've got the money to blow (bear in mind, I already had most of this gear due to other hobbies, so had accumulated it over time) an airbrush is a VERY nice-to-have. Putting on your primer coat with an airbrush will give you a MUCH better quality final product when you go to paint it. (I'll show pictures of this in a couple days.) Though now I'm probably getting more into "painting minis" tips than Photon printing tips...

11.) You can prevent resin overflow (and I don't know why this wasn't on a SINGLE video that I watched about the photon before buying it) by simply moving your platform to the "home" position before filling the vat, adding the resin, then raising it 10cm or so before starting up a print. If the resin over flows, it can destroy your LCD screen. And you'll be surprised how much resin the platform will displace when it lowers into the vat. If you put the platform into the vat (the home button) and THEN fill it with resin, you can be sure to never get an overflow.

Hrm. This list got longer than I expected. I'll let ya know if I come up with any others.

u/OutOfTheLimits · 4 pointsr/AskCulinary

Really depends you'll have to measure your window or just experiment. If you can't get one specific as a window fan you can always get a small, square or rectangular fan and find a way to shove it in there.

Forgot to mention I also open a window on the other side of my place so fresh air enters there and takes the smokey, smelly air out on the other side

edit.. /u/Muskellunge120 , I got this one 4 yrs ago. Expensive but running well as ever. Bet the cheaper ones are fine too though. Recently took apart to clean (so oily from cooking/ dusty from where I live) and it's doing just fine. A while ago I opened it up and disconnected the speaker so it doesn't make annoying beeps anymore.

It's really key to have the fan directly in the window and blowing air out, and to have that cross flow by opening a window on the other side. It would be great if one of these window fans fits since they move a lot of air and they cover the whole window opening. Used to smoke a lot of pot in college and never got caught thanks to these things. Truly got good at ensuring our place was aired out well and the smell never hit the hallway ;) Later in life those skills are still useful.. heh. Generally speaking I don't think cooking should make excess smoke (except searing like mentioned) but it definitely creates a lot of smells and smoke even if things are going well. Hence why I always use the fan, I love to cook but hate to have my place reek. Deep fried potatoes in batches yesterday and it's pretty fresh in here today. Can't even imagine how long it would smell otherwise.

If you go the outdoor route also look into the Coleman Classic. It's like $40 from Walmart or similar, propane bottles are cheap (but kinda wasteful), or a big propane tank connected to that would last a long time.

u/tsdguy · 4 pointsr/3Dprinting

It's worthless. Why don't you use real desiccation products - they're cheap as dirt on Amazon.

I use a renewable mini dehumidifier in my sealed filament box. When the crystals get saturated you plug it into the wall and it drives out the moisture to reuse it again.

Also don't put your wet phones into rice - also worthless.

u/ElectricTaser · 4 pointsr/preppers

Ignore the products below. This is what you want.
You just take it out, plug it into an outlet to recharge it and the stick it back in. No fuss.

u/herdaz · 4 pointsr/homemaking

Get all of the suits out of the closet, they'll all need a proper airing out. The one you'd like to wear will probably need to be dry cleaned again before you can do so. The others need more room to breathe so they won't end up musty. If you can hang them outside for a couple of hours, the sunlight and fresh air will help kill the smell.

Before you put the suits back into the closet, you'll need to give the closet a thorough cleaning. Vacuum the floor, sweep up the cobwebs in the corner, and then make a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water to wipe down the walls, poles, shelves--everything. After that, let it dry out. Then look into getting a product like damp rid or an odor eater or a renewable dehumidifier to help keep smells down.

u/AddictedToComedy · 4 pointsr/3Dprinting

I line the case with this stuff. It does a decent enough job without cutting to much airflow.

Very fine dust still gets through and coats heatsink fins but the dust is to small to bridge the gab between two fins to begin clumping up and clogging airflow. Looks like a fine layer of chalk dust after 6 months to a year.

You can get yourself a smoke buddy

smokebuddy Jr Black Personal Air Filter

This will drastically reduce the already reduced smell of the vapor. I used to smoke in my closet with the smoke buddy and my M for a few months. It does work, however there will a smell. To my knowledge there is no way to 100% avoid it. However you could easily just open a window with the smoke buddy and you'll be good to go. I personally like to leave a fan on just for the peace of mind. Towel under the door is also a good idea anyway, and AC doesnt really have an effect to my knowledge.

Hope this helps!

u/kushdup · 4 pointsr/trees

The Smoke Buddy is an excellent addition to the stealth-tokers arsenal, but the best method is to vape high quality concentrates out of a pen-style vaporizer, then exhale out the window through a carbon filter (smoke buddy or make a custom one). I got away with this for years with 0 suspicion from any of my extremely anti-weed family.

Edit: I also must mention that silly "sploof" idea where you put dryer sheets in a toilet paper tube simply does not work and will get you caught!

I'm still working on my keezer, but I used to have moisture+mold issues in my cellar fridge, but adding one of these worked wonders. You just have to remember to re-charge it every once in a while.

u/mrjizzles · 4 pointsr/fragrance

You can ozone the room and it will permanently eliminate the fragrance molecules from everything in your room/house by chemical magic -- it switches Oxygen (O2) to O3 -- which rips the bonds that cause fragrances/odors.

This is easy to fix and will cost only about $70, but the device will last for nearly a lifetime. I highly recommend it for all sorts of uses. It can be used in cars, too. Public spaces such as office buildings, retail spaces, cinemas, restaurants, and hotels use these all the time to keep everything smelling clean. Keep your closets and drawers open while doing this so your clothes and shoes get freshened, too.


u/chibichn · 4 pointsr/Outlier

I've never done this with clothes, but you might consider trying an ozone generator as they basically neutralize any smells. The downside is that you'd have to invest in some mildly expensive equipment. I have an Enerzen model I bought off Amazon and it works great.

u/mfinn · 4 pointsr/Hunting

Next time you can invest in a 75.00 ozone generator. Put it in the running car, turn it on for 25 minutes and run the AC on recirculate.

It will eliminate ANY smell in that car. Cigarettes smoke, deer blood, musk gland stink, dead hooker smells in the trunk, you name it. Just stay out of the car for a couple of hours until the ozone itself dissipates since it's terrible for your lungs.

This is the one I own.

It's also amazing for scent control. I don't even bother with cover smells any more. Just ozone my stuff the night before and leave it in a rubbermade bin.

u/chrisbrl88 · 4 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Candles don't neutralize odor. If anything, they make things worse by putting soot into the air. This would be a job for an ozone generator. The things are like magic.

I used this Frigidaire AC for my DIY glycol chiller build. It was easy to dissemble and the copper piping was pretty easy to bend as there is only one large diameter pipe that needed to be re-positioned.

u/Cemeterystoneman · 3 pointsr/Firearms

>WWII era rifle with a wood stock

Really any wooden stock/wood should be kept inside/temperature controlled. If you are unable to secure wooden/more sensitive firearms indoors (you totally can, even if its disassembling them but I get personal preference) you would do better to disassemble the firearm keeping the wood indoors and the receiver/action (metal) would be fine in the safe

As the other user mentions, humidity/moisture will be the issue. This isn't inherently produced in the cold so thats not the problem, what can become a problem is temperature fluctuations can create humidity/moisture build up resulting in moisture on the firearms - it sounds like you're going to be storing these unused for some time so that is something to consider, you can purchase a rechargeable dehumidifier like one of these to throw into the safe and recharge every month or so to prevent this from happening.

If you plan on not using certain or all of the guns for a long time you might also want to consider rubbing them down with a silicone cloth(this can be used on any part of the gun even stocks/wood) which will prevent moisture from attacking the metal/absorbing into the wood.

Depending on what kind of plastic/synthetic stocks extreme cold could weaken them over time but I don't believe it will be a major factor. Electronics (sights, lasers etc.) don't typically hold up to extended cold but if there ok-good quality you should be fine.

Personally my vote would be to get a safe in a more temperature controlled location sometime in the future but I also have a lot of firearms I wouldn't want to keep exposed like that, for the short term (one winter) you should be fine.

Either of those methods should work. Air it out for a couple of days after. Also I'd totally recommend a dehumidifier that you keep in the unit. I have a little rechargeable one that I was recommended by /r/homebrewing a couple years ago - the EVA-500 or similar.

To add to this:

  • Use a pipe screen to make single bowl hits as efficient as possible. Sometimes if you do a small hit with no screen some of the weed will fall through before you can light it.

  • Ozium is extremely effective, but just beware it has its own lemon smell (link to amazon)

  • If you can swing the $10 or so, a Smokebuddy works wonders (link to amazon). Seriously you can take a massive hit and blow it out through one of these and see no smoke come through. It doesn't completely eliminate the odor but will reduce it much more than the classic dryer sheet sploof method.

  • Another way to put out a bowl quickly is to put your thumb over the top of the bowl. No oxygen = no fire. Just be careful to not burn your thumb!

"ozone generators remove odors by producing large/concentrated amounts of O3 (ozone) which oxidize and break down residual odor compounds in the surrounding air. Because the O3 is so highly concentrated, it is recommended that rooms be unoccupied during treatment. Once the air treatment is finished though, the O3 quickly converts back into O2 (oxygen) and the room is left with a "fresh air" smell."

lived on the first floor of a UWP court during fall and spring term. highly recommend bringing a fan or two, especially a (reversible) window fan. had a small honeywell fan to circulate air around and a reversible window fan that fits in your sliding window.

i used my window fan to exhaust the air out in the morning or when it got hot. at night past 12:00 AM, the temperature would dip to below 20 degrees so i would use my window fan to blow air in to cool my room down by a huge factor. my room went from a sauna to a standard room with AC in 20 minutes. a window fan is very useful for a decent amount of temperature control in your room. very helpful for sleeping at night.

general ways of beating the heat would be to only go to your room to cook, shower, drop stuff off, or sleep. go to a place with AC (like grand commons or CMH) to study or do whatever instead. close all of your blinds and keep the lights off to keep your room as cool as possible. sleeping without a blanket became a necessity during the first couple weeks of september and all of july and august.

TL;DR - buy a reversible window fan

My advice as well. Doesn't even have to be a big fucking one, though. This is a good fly-b-gone with some really decent power, and the base allows for various mounting options.

u/Nparallelopposite · 3 pointsr/axolotls

I'll just give you my generalize copy/pasta I usually hand out in situations like these so if you wanna read it when you got a chance, then you have it! Also has tips and purchase links for Amazon as well for different axolotl stuffs.


  1. Set up tank with clean conditioned water. 2. Add recommended amount of beneficial bacteria per label

  2. Add "waste" to the tank, so a little bit of say fish flakes ( they're cheap and you need a waste source since you DO NOT put a fish or axolotl in a uncycled tank. The flakes are gonna break down into ammonia. The goal with cycling is to get benefical bacteria to build up so they can change (eat) the waste & breaks down the ammonia into nitrite then finally break it down further into nitrate. All these chemicals can hurt axolotl.

  3. Test tank a couple days later with a testing kit ( avoid strips, they will lie to you and give false results) if there is ANY ammonia or nitrite present, you arent cycled. If there is no nitrate present either, you arent cycled.

  4. If you find ammonia or nitrite, take 50% of the water out and add clean treated water. Add more seachem stability ( benefical bacteria) ( add these each time you change water. Even if it's cycled)

  5. Add a pinch more flakes & Continue to do this until your tank is cycled. Meaning you have no ammonia, no nitrite and a presence of 40ppm or less of nitrate.

    1.If your tank isn't cycled, you are going to chemical burn them with ammonia in the water. And they will suffer. Nitrate ( the final of the chemical process) can also burn the fish/axolotl. This is why we keep this number under 40ppm. If it is higher than 40ppm, change the water 75%.

  6. This beneficial bacteria lives in the filter. If you change your filter, you just ruined your cycle. Don't do this. If it gets nasty/clogged & you have to replace the cartirage, leave the old cartirage in with the new one for a few days so the beneficial bacteria can inhabit the new filter. If you can avoid replacing that, just rinse/gently squeeze out the filter in old tank water when you do clean the tank to keep from murdering the bacteria
  7. Letting the filter dry out will also kill a cycle.

  8. *NOTE: Most bottles of beneficial bacteria say they cycle a tank in a day. Cycling can take up to a month in some cases but usually just two weeks if you keep on it. This requires constantly monitoring, testing and replacing most of the water in the tank when you get high ammonia/nitrite levels. You need ammonia/nitrite to be 0 and nitrate to be more than 0. Definitely less <40. If all your levels are higher than this, or if nitrate remains 0, your tank isn't cycled.***

    So basically, cycling builds beneficial bacteria which makes these waste breakdown chemicals go through a cycle of breaking down into a less dangerous form which keeps fish/axolotl from getting sick/dying. ... Most new fish people don't do this. And fish store employees try & tell them just adding something like seachem stability fixes this. It doesn't. An uncycled tank is basically new tank syndrome and it kills animals.

    You still are going to need to keep an eye on chemical levels after the cycle..Occasionally different things can cause the cycle to "crash", like changing the filters or a high tempeture, or the filters becoming dry..

    Once your tank is cycled, and you have an axolotl, honestly it's not that much work. The cycles the worst part. I feed my adult axolotls once every other day, I change 75% of their water twice a month, and add water to top it off / spot clean occasionally two-three other times a month due to the water I lose due to evaporation.

    Stuff you'll need:
  9. Air stone+ airline+ air pump ( cheap ones are at Walmart.
  10. Seachem stability ( beneficial bacteria)
  11. Seachem prime ( it's a water conditioner I just prefer seachem)
  12. A tank, 10 gallon minimum for 1 axolotl. But the bigger the better.
  13. A filter
  14. Hides for the axolotl
  15. A syphon / water vacuum ( to suck out the poo/change water easy. I have a long food grade plastic hose I got from Ace hardware. I syphon and let it drain into the yard
  16. A bucket
  17. A Tupperware
  18. A fan. Literally any fan you can put on top the tank and point at it will work. I have a table fan sitting on top my tank and blowing at the water to help keep it cool. A chiller is best, but they are expensive.
  19. A tank thermometer ( don't get the thermometer strips, they lie
  20. A master fresh water test kit.
  21. Worms or repashy or pellets

  22. Test kit

  23. Fan suggestion

  24. Tank thermometer

    Air pump + line + stone.

  25. Filter ( basic the tank you have probably already has one)

  26. Shower poof ( hang these so they slow the flow of water coming out of filter. Axolotls don't like a lot of heavy water flow. Get these at the dollar store and rinse them before going in tank. You don't have to get these online. I'm just showing you)

  27. Seachem stuff


  28. Food


    Ice cube trays for repashy( frozen is better. It's a jello. It will really trash your tank. So frozen is better):

  29. Hides. Here's a good example..I soemthing similar. Just go to the reptile section at your pet store. Get one that's not rough but smooth. Plastics a good option. Just rinse it well before you put it in tank

  30. Water vacuum. This is what I have + I have a big long hose for big water changes. I use this to spot clean poo and "vacuum' it into a 10 gallon bucket

    Feeding tongs: They're actually tweezers for planting a planted fish tank. These can grip worms very well.. The Amazon ones that are silver suck and will make your life hell. Don't waste your money on ones on amazon unless you can find these on Amazon.
u/Brom42 · 3 pointsr/woodstoving

It doesn't even need to be a big fan. I use one of these on the floor to push the cold air back to the room with my stove. Small and quiet and it does the job.

But like you say, it works better to move the cold air toward the stove than to move the warm air to the other rooms.

u/the_chols · 3 pointsr/Beatmatch

I have a portable fan I put either on my table or down on the floor. Link to item on Amazon. I get lots of compliments on it from guests and photographers.

I also bring 3 changes of clothes. One to setup in, one to perform in, and one to tear down/drive home in.

I pack a roll of paper towels, but my next gig this weekend (outdoor barn venue in Georgia) I am bringing a small towel. The paper towels get soaked instantly and sometimes leave lint on my face.

Lastly, I would recommend dressing up in vest, shirt, and tie only if the clients requested it. My go-to is dress slacks and a golf style polo (the dry thread type). I got 3 of them at Sam's for $20 each and they are sharp. I have some long sleeve button down shirts that don't show sweat much I will wear if I want to really dress up. I have yet to wear a tie.

Don't be shy about how hard you are working. Other vendors and guests understand. If they see you pushing through it and not letting up they will be more inclined to party, too!

Good luck and stay hydrated!

u/ExPostRedemptore · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Consider a floor standing portable ducted air conditioner such as this one:

You'd need to make a small adapter to fit the duct into a window - basically a sheet of MDF with a hole in it - and the unit would have to be within a few feet of the window to connect the ducting.

The up front cost of this type of system is low - usually under $700. They aren't as efficient as some central AC units though.

u/grimlock25 · 3 pointsr/vancouver

Good time to grab a portable AC unit.

I’ve been looking at the Whynter 14,000 BTU. Online reviews have been very positive. Probably going to grab it before the rising temperatures turn my place into a raging inferno.

Have you ever replaced a window regulator? If so, the vapor barrier might have not been re-adhered properly. That's what keeps rain out of the car. I had this issue in my car. Check each foot well after rain to see if the carpets damp.

As for drying it out, I got a bucket of rv dessicant and left it in the back for 6 months or so. That seemed to work.

u/shortyjacobs · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

Is your keg in the garage? Where do you live?

It can easily freeze if it's cold enough. I live in the Twin Cities MN. I need a heater in my kegerator in the winter (it's in my garage), or else it easily freezes solid. Does your inkbird have both a heating and a cooling circuit? IF you live in a cold area and your keezer is outside, get one of these and plug it into the "heat" part of the inkbird....that way this wont happen again.

That's a bit crazy though - I've had a bunch of kegs freeze solid - never had one overflow though.

u/Discover2010 · 3 pointsr/BeardedDragons

First get a Infrared Thermometer. Here's a pen one for $10 on amazon

Then get another heat source. I use a mini space heater like the one shown here to bump up the ambient tempurature of the the whole tank to 80 and under the heat light to 110 . I got mine at Walgreens for under $20. You might check there today because if your beardie is vomiting that is a very bad sign and waiting 2 weeks on shipping could be dangerous.

Most people use a ceramic heat bulb like this though:

u/ganjananda · 3 pointsr/microgrowery

I have a 2'x4'x4' tent in an attic -- right by the soffit no less. I have two of these: My Heat Personal Ceramic Heater, one on each end of the tent by the air intake. Makes a huge difference and has relatively low power consumption.

I also wrap my tent in a blanket and layer some cardboard to add insulation. Regardless of the air temperature, you're going to lose a lot of heat through the tent walls, and the branches closest to the walls will suffer. A little bit of insulation can make a big difference.

u/amonsterinside · 3 pointsr/Allergies

You don't need $400.00 for an air purifier. Buy a GermGuardian, they're $80 and spend the rest on new filters every 1-3mo.

Immunotherapy is going to be the best option for your girlfriend. It's also really good to start immunotherapy early if your child develops allergies. Daily antihistamines might be in your favor, Costco is a great place to buy antihistamines for a year and very cheap (sub $15).

All in all, no, you're not doing any disservice to your child by not letting them inhale cigarette second hand smoke or second hand weed. Purify the air if you know it exists. Chances are your child will have allergies if the mother does. It's just the way the world works. I've been exposed to mold, dander, pollen, trees, grass, and played in the dirt and was outside my entire childhood. I'm still allergic to everything. Germ theory makes sense for allergies, but does not always play out in practice. There's something deeper that has yet to be discovered, but for now, do your best to keep your child away from secondhand smoke and don't worry too much about air allergens. They're going to get plenty of allergen exposure at school, the playground, other parts of the house, and just about anywhere you go.

This one? it's definitely a rectangle and not an oval, and definitely a tower.

I vape a lot in my computer room. If an air filter will reduce / eliminate the VG build up on my monitor and stop my fire alarm from going off when I chain a few big puff, seems worth it to me.

u/n0esc · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Anything in a spray, oil or incense is just masking the odor. Even Febreeze really just covers up the smell vs treating the symptoms. You're covering all the bases by washing, vacuuming, and improving air flow. The next step I would go with is an air purifier.

There are smaller ones than that one, but this has the most/highest reviews and is the best seller on Amazon for what that's worth.

u/Gracey11111 · 3 pointsr/legaladvice

When I still used analog my home office was the only place I smoked in my house. Even after quitting I continue to use this: I had stopped using it but I too noticed an odor with using my ecig so much in my office.

u/pandaeconomics · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

It's a horrible trade-off to make!

Here is the air purifier and I highly recommend getting both the suggested filter and pre-filter. The pre-filters get all of the pet hair and are cheaper so that you only replace those every so often instead of the entire filter. Once the pre-filter gets gray I replace it, about every month, but the actual filter only needs to be replaced a couple times a year in my experience. It depends on how much dust and other things are actually making it through.

Life has been much better with this and if you just need a dog-free space like the bedroom, it'll be even more effective because the space is smaller. :)

Edit: Also, I've had it since December of 2015 and it still works very well!

u/goodfellaslxa · 3 pointsr/PipeTobacco

(repost of my reply to a different thread)

What worked for me when I shared a house with several other people was to use a box fan in the window. Now that I have my own house I still use a fan, but actually bought a proper window fan (

My den/smoking room doesn't stink despite several cigars and many evenings smoking pipes in the past few months.

The secret to using a fan in the window is that it MUST make a decent seal. You want the fan to create a vacuum in the room that you are smoking in. I have done this with cardboard and scotch tape, but the window fan has panels built in that accomplishes this. If you can create a vacuum in the room, either keep the door closed or cracked, depending on how much air can flow under it. You should be able to hold your hand near the door and feel the air being sucked in. This is called negative-pressure. If you can achieve negative pressure in a room that doesn't have an air-conditioner intake in it, you should not only keep the smell in that room to a minimum, but also prevent anyone on the other side of the door from being able to smell the smoke. I was able to smoke cigars in a room and no one else in the house could tell, but that only worked once I learned to create a seal on the window. To really test it, you must get a non-smoker to do a sniff test, since a smoker won't notice a faint odor that non-smokers will. Any faint smells may be eliminated by using an ozone generator. Lampe Bergers with neutral oil work well too.

u/NevaDoWatItDo · 3 pointsr/cigars

Have you tried this? I have this for my place and I just put them on the window, click exhaust and let it rip. Not too loud and it moves alot of smoke. I suppose you can get 2 and have them alternate(awesome setting) between in&out.

u/transistorfn · 3 pointsr/vaporents

This is the one I have. I'm not talking like a desktop purifier. I'm talking a large bulky appliance that chills on the floor in my bedroom. They do the job perfectly as long as you get something rated for the space (sq ft typically) you're toking in. I mean... It's not instantaneous, but it does move a lot of air fast when on high, that being said, it's also loud when on high.

Honeywell 50250-S True HEPA Air Purifier.

Carbon Pre-Filter.

One caveat to the whole thing is that these obviously aren't meant/rated for someone using them to smoke with. They're meant for folks with severe allergies, sensitivities to smells, and chronic illnesses that might affect their immune systems.

As such, the equipment only holds up so long, and you'll need to replace the "lifetime" hepa filter. There are plenty both official and aftermarket you can find like this one.

u/shuhweet · 3 pointsr/malelivingspace

Originally picked up an HEPA air filter to reduce dust and allergens. The secondary white noise effect is now the primary reason I use it. It drowns out so much external noise. Both living room tv and outside traffic noise is mostly inaudible. it's a white noise type sound so you don't notice the filter sound after a while. This is the one I use.

Also recommend ear plugs for sleeping when you have noisy roommates.

u/nathhad · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I just wanted to second the vote for a separate purifier. Any filter more restrictive than a loose weave is effectively pretty hard on an HVAC unit. It makes a lot more sense to run a second unit.

We deal with allergies, and have three of these running in a 1500 square foot house, much more effective and less likely to cause thousands in HVAC damage:

u/isanyonekeepingtrack · 3 pointsr/3Dprinting

My guess would be old filament as well, probably soaked up a bit of moisture making it even more brittle. You're printing PLA? I use 1.75mm and if I leave the filament loaded the unspooled part will become brittle and crack after a few days. Make sure you're storing your filament in a plastic container with a good desiccant pack when not using it.

u/muzakx · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

I just put mine together this weekend.

  • I picked up this 7.1 cu ft chest freezer that is on sale at Lowe's. Combined it with a 10% coupon I found on eBay for $1.

  • Plugged it into the cooling outlet of an Inkbird ITC-308

  • Threw in this dehumidifier

  • Then laid down and taped a reptile terrarium heating cable. And plugged it into the Heating outlet of the Inkbird controller. There are other options for heating, but I found this locally at a really good price.

    Around $220 for everything, but you can fit two 6 gallon carboys and two 3 gallon carboys or a few 1 gallon jugs on the hump.

u/nsomnac · 3 pointsr/FixMyPrint

Start with drying your filament or dumping and buying new.

Filament that’s been left out absorbs moisture just from the humidity in the air.

I bought a 5 gallon bucket along with an air tight screw top lid and one of these Rechargable Dessicant modules. Lock your filament in here, put that bucket in a warm place for a week and it should dry out. There’s a modification to this setup where you place a work light with a metal shade inside the bucket at the bottom with a low wattage bulb (40W) along with dessicant. You need a little shelf inside the bucket to sit the filament on. The turn the bulb on, close the lid, and wait overnight. You have to put holes in the bucket for this technique but it’s faster. IMO, save the $$ from building this heated chamber, buy new filament and have just the bucket with dessicant for storing when not in use.

If you have access to a large enough dehydrator or you have an oven than can go very low (100°F), that will work too.

Once you’ve dried out the filament your prints should improve. Heck I found that prints improved drastically from putting brand new filament in the bucket for a day.

u/realisticred · 3 pointsr/Humboldt

If you're in a small-ish 1 bedroom apartment, I found that the passive dehumidifiers work just fine. Maybe get a couple and keep one in a general area and one in the closet to protect your clothes and shoes. I think you can get them at any hardware store or order a reusable one off of amazon.

My roommate and I had this little guy in our bathroom to keep the moisture down and it worked great!

u/the_original_cabbey · 3 pointsr/3Dprinting

Having just built one based on a design a local maker was using at a demo, it's not exactly a lot of time, or money. I got one of these at the local department store for $15:

New and Improved Eva-dry E-333 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier

And a bin something like this for $9 (note this link is to a 6 pack, shipped... way cheaper to just buy one at a local store):

Sterilite 17571706 66-Quart ClearView Latch Box, Clear lid & base with Purple Latches, 6-Pack

You can size the bin to your space and expected open spool count... just look for a latching lid and a lack of holes in the bin. I found the safety stickers about not letting kids play in the bin were a good hint that they sealed air tight. :)

Drop the evadry in the bin, load it up with filament and close the lid. Done. Cost about as much as a decent kilo of filament.

Every time I get a roll out or put one back I look at the evadry. When it is showing green I pull it out and plug it in in a bathroom overnight with the fan on. I had to do that about a week after setting this up. It's been months since and I've not seen any noticeable change in its indicator.

If I wanted to get fancy I could seal up the four small holes where the latches attach... but as long as I'm not having to do a drying cycle very often I'm not going to bother.

u/tiberiusgv · 3 pointsr/sailing

I do videos for on my Hobie 16 when I'm at regattas and for fun. I'm usually camping so at night I have my GoPros charging in my tent. Even with using the anti fog tabs my videos always fogged up. The can look completely dry, but when the electronics of the GoPro warm up any bit of humidity goes right to the lense. The trick I learned is to always store my gear in a dry box with a mini dehumidifier. This was a complete game changer and I intend to modify my dry box so I can pass power into it for charging while all components that are used on the water are kept as dry as possible. The only place I store my GoPro gear is in my dry box now.

The dehumidifier I use:

The dry box I use (thinking about getting a bigger one though):

Video from July before I used the dry box and dehumidifier (you can see fog rings at various times):

Video from November after leaving my equipment in the dry box for a few week (zero fogging even with 55 degree air temps):

Laptop to free up space on the SD cards is a great call, but I would recommend having additional SD cards so you don't have to wait 20 to 30 minutes for a full SD card to download to your laptop if you want to make a quick swap.

For being out on the water I would never trust the jaws or suction cup. For doing video on big boats I use this: with some adapters to get it to GoPro mounting system. There are also GoPro handel bar mounts that I would put around various poles on the boat.

For on my H16 I use these adapters that I have permanently riveted to a couple places on my boat.

No matter what kind of attachment I use I also do a safety line with some high strength kite string.

Oh, and the expanded batter packs are a must. They can fill up most of a 64gb card on one charge.

And don't skimp on the quality of your SD cards. GoPros write a lot of data quickly and the cheep ones can't keep up and will ruin your video...or just give up trying.

Just one of these little renewable mini's. LINK

They're great. Leave them in until the beads change color (I check around once a week) then plug in for 18 hours to evaporate the water out. Back in the keezer it goes! Length of time it lasts really depends on how humid my basement is (I try to keep it ~60% RH) and how much I'm opening my keezer, but it's usually around a 4 weeks before needing "recharged".

u/wintercast · 3 pointsr/GoRVing

I dont know what your temps are.. but personally - i would not do this. I would blow out the lines/use RV antifreeze (i blew out my lines and still had issues with the toilet valve cracking). RV antifreeze worked.. I hate the smell, but a good line flush and i did not even notice it when i set it up in the spring. The batteries, i would charge them up all the way; then bring them in the house for the winter. Probably dont need to tend them, just charge up and bring in the house. Perhaps test them to see if they need fluids or a charge.

I started doing this - RV antifreeze and bringing in my batteries and i have had a MUCH better and less expensive winterize/dewinterize then previous 2 years.

Trying to keep an RV above freezing is a pain and expensive unless you have it stored indoors.

If you are worried about moisture, i use the moisture absorbers that you recharge by plugging in. I got them from costco. They really do work.

How old is your cat? Does she have any health issues? Joint or muscle problems? Low body fat? Pain issues? Mobility issues from aging or injury?

Years ago, when I moved into a new place, my cat was upset and hid in a cold cabinet for weeks. I was worried she would get sick from the cold, so I put an electric heating pad in there (I was always home so I managed the on/off, never letting her get too hot). Too late though--she ended up with pneumonia and bronchitis within the month. Nice big $2K vet bill for that, and her health was never the same.

Would you feel safe leaving an oil heater running in a room for her? Something like this---

I have one and it runs 24/7 on high for weeks in the winter here. I have it in my bedroom and it really helps take the chill off. Many mornings I wake up and find the cats sleeping on the floor next to it. They'll even call a truce with each other to share the space by the heater. You could set it to a timer to come off and on if you are worried about it, but mine has never caused any problems and they are really sturdy, don't fall over and aren't dangerous to anything that might be near them (bedding, etc).

The self-heating bed someone posted is great for the inside of a box or flat in the bottom of a cat bed, but breathing the cold air into her lungs is what seemed to get my cat sick (or atleast knock her system down allowing her to get sick).

u/langenoirx · 3 pointsr/AskNYC

They haven't turned mine on yet either. Just get one of these in the interim.

For a tent yes, for a PC no. Cut to Fit Carbon Filter

u/FatZombieMama · 3 pointsr/portlandhomegrowers

You'll need to contain the plants inside a grow room or tent, then set up a way for fresh air to get in and smelly air to get out. You'll need a fan or blower to move air from the in-vent to the out-vent. On the out-vent end, set up a filter that the air has to go through, which will clean the odor from it.

An expensive but easy/effective way to do this is to buy a carbon scrubber with fan like this:

A much cheaper but DIY way is to set up a good fan and make sure all air passes through one or two layers of carbon filter fabric like this:

Edit: if you haven't looked at tents yet, there's a good selection at amazon: - they make it much easier to control venting, lighting, temperature, humidity, etc. For 1-2 plants, don't go smaller than 4 square feet, and give yourself plenty of height.

u/Throwaways1999 · 3 pointsr/SpaceBuckets

A little more descriptive...

Smell may be a big issue for me so I'm trying to find the best way to fix it on the cheap while keeping the height minimal.

I think that intake fans are not needed if sufficient air is being pulled out the exhaust. The filter will be stacked as such:

-6" hole in bucket cover
-carbon mesh screen lays over hole

-6" duct vent collar screwed through mesh into bucket

-activated carbon granules dumped into vent collar so they sit on top of the carbon mesh screen

-A second carbon mesh screen is stuffed snuggly on top of the carbon granules

A. If I have an exhaust fan pulling out up to 240 CFM through this, will this be sufficient for air circulation for the plant?

B. Is the negative pressure effecting the plant in anyway?

C. Am I correct in assuming the negative pressure should greatly cut down on possible odors?

D. Other thoughts about this methods effectiveness?

Thanks for your time!

I bought this one. Works great.


u/Rock_My_Socks · 3 pointsr/houseplants

Sure! I got the one gallon but maybe I should have gone a bit smaller or one that wasn’t tall (like the picture above). I love how long it runs but it is a little big for the space I have it in. It doesn’t look like an eye sore though so it’s not a big deal. Other than that I really like this humidifier, no real complaints.

Vicks 1-Gallon Warm Mist Humidifier

we like the vicks ones but you can usually find them cheaper in walmart or target

u/CharlieChuu · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

For warm must I use this
For cool mist I use this

I have not had any issues with the Vicks. I really love it. The crane must be placed higher up on tall furniture to be most effective. It still works nicely on a night stand but a tall dresser is optimum. Both humidifiers work a 10x10-12x12 room excellently.

u/larrylemur · 2 pointsr/SubredditDrama

I got this one. It's good stuff, I'd highly recommend it.

u/Khelek41girl · 2 pointsr/craftymighty

I have the Crafty and the vapor does smell. It's most definitely not as bad as combustion, but it is there. Someone suggested a smokebuddy but you can also get something like this...

Bionaire BW2300-N Twin Reversible Airflow Window Fan with Remote Control

You can reverse the airflow to suck air out of the room so that would definitely help. Especially if you are vaping and blowing into the fan. I don't find that the unit smells enough on its own to cause a problem. It's mostly the exhalation of the vapor that smells

u/borisst · 2 pointsr/zerocarb

Use a fan set to reverse on the kitchen window to draw all the smoke outside. This solved the problem for me.

The first window fan I've tried was too weak and broke easily, the second one was more reliable but still too weak, so I eventually settled on a regular box fan like this. The box fan is cheap, powerful, and easy to install and remove.

The downsides are that it is not very practical in cold climates and harsh winters, the fan gets dirty quickly and it's hard to clean.

u/AlohaKim · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I like Vornado fans (just got a third one at CVS with my 40% off coupon). I have one within a few feet of me most the day. We also use this window fan ( which is especially helpful at night to bring in cooler air. We figured out we could run one of the Vornado fans for nine hours for the same price as running a small portable A/C unit for one hour. These fans are also much more efficient and effective than ceiling fans.

I'm also thinking of getting one of these: I've read great things about them and with a hot, cuddly newborn this summer, it might be really helpful.

u/_BrianL_ · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Costco sells (sold?) a window opening fan deal with two fans in it. They could be set to run both the same direction (either in or out), or one in each direction (to exchange air). Found it:

It has a timer and temperature setting (so it will run until desired temp is reached -- although it's not an AC so I'm not sure how well that works). Not a dimmer, though. I think it has high/medium/low speeds, though.

u/goramuth · 2 pointsr/cigars
u/smoke_trees · 2 pointsr/trees

I wouldn't mess with smoking inside until you get a VERY good feel for how things work at your campus. You never know who will stop by and when. Once you get a feel of how things work, get a window fan that sucks air out. [This is the one i used] ( and just make sure you smoke by the fan. Wont need anything other than that. Until then, just venture around the campus grounds to find a chill spot. Good luck and don't get caught!

u/seattleque · 2 pointsr/Seattle

I have something like this, but not quite so fancy:

The key that really helps is that you can have the blades run for both inbound, or one each direction. Really helps circulate the air with the outside.

u/Kes255 · 2 pointsr/hookah

I smoke in my office, pretty standard 10x10 room. I heat the coals out in the garage with a coil heater and blow on them outside before bringing in.

I also have one of these that I put in the window and set on exhaust. (both fans blow out) - And just to finish it out, I have this amazing thing that scrubs the air for whatever doesn't get pushed out the window. I close the door and let the air gap bring in fresh air from the house.

If I have to blow on the coals, I pull off the HMD, walk to the door, and blow the ash outside. I still have to wipe down my desk and vacuum every now and then but at least the house doesn't smell like smoke.

u/RedditAccount2416 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I've got some of those cheapos that OP linked, but I really like this one

It can have 1 fan reversing and 1 fan blowing to exchange the air in the room which is a nice feature to have. I'm not sure how common that feature is, but might be good to have in a bathroom.

u/NotThorny · 2 pointsr/vancouver

I'd at least double all those numbers and leccy at step 2 is $0.12870 (this extra use of electric will be step 2). But yeah this is good advice, offer to pay for the electric you use, show the calculations and not to run the thing non stop.

Very popular LG 8000 BTU air con, 1040 Watts, $299:

And I calculate it at 100%, I've not seen a small air con unit trying to cool a room stop working in the Vancouver summer.

I live on a busy intersection with a few bus stops. We got this air purifier which has really helped. It's not the cheapest solution, but it allows us to keep our windows open while reducing fumes and particles that trigger migraines for me and asthma for my husband.

Which model Honeywell? I saw the Honeywell 50250-S on Amazon and thought it looked good.

u/FastRedPonyCar · 2 pointsr/askscience

my wife suffers from pretty bad allergies. we replaced our generic cheap air filter for our central air unit. after a couple of weeks, she said she could tell a noticeable difference.

I've also considered getting a Honeywell 50250 to put in our main living room area. I've read great things about it and it's cheap vs most other "pro" air cleaners.

u/3423553453 · 2 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

I did watch DJslb video about it, it does look like a very ordinary air purifier, a fan with a filter. I think you'll be disappointed.

You and me probably need a device more like this:

edit: actually for a similar price this looks good:

u/digiplay · 2 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Honeywell 50250-S True HEPA Air Purifier, 390 sq. ft.

It's awesome but even on low a little loud. It works very very well though. I can't crack a window and this is a good solution.

u/bbdoll · 2 pointsr/cats

anti-allergen cat wipes! you use them once a week or so on kitty's fur. it works because the allergy is actually to the cat's saliva, not the fur itself.

that along with the hepa purifier (and a hepa vacuum) as suggested, and just grooming every day with a good brush (check out the Chirpy brush on amazon, works wonders).

the rest is just time. many people stop being allergic after a few months of exposure :)

edit: i use this purifier and it's awesome. it's been running on high 24/7 for 3 yrs now flawlessly. it has a permanent filter that you vacuum every couple of weeks and a cheap charcoal filter you can vacuum a few times before having to replace it.

u/fullofbones · 2 pointsr/ragdolls

Well, we brush both of ours at least every other day with a steel comb like this, just so they don't have matting problems. I've only seen one furball between the two of them in the last year or so. It really is shocking how much loose fur a simple steel comb will catch, but it works. :)

We have this air purifier in the bedroom to reduce fluff in there. It's crazy how much fur it catches. The black filter wrap that goes around the whole inside is white before I vacuum the fur off when cleaning it.

And finally, we have this brush for getting fur off clothes. You'll still want the sticky brushes for touch-ups, but this catches a ton of buildup and works great on furniture.

u/weirdwolfkid · 2 pointsr/RATS

We use this honeywell purifier, with the charcoal pre-filter as well, but it worked fine before that too. It also does a really good job getting rid of odors

A trombone brush works great for cleaning the drains behind the seat belt towers. Just be careful pushing it all the way through and yanking it back out: there are little rubber flaps at the bottom that can rip off if you jam them too hard.

As far as the water in there now, soak up as much as you can, dry with a hair dryer (being careful not to burn or melt the carpet), and if it's still a little damp an RV Dehumidifier can remove the rest of the moisture in the cabin.

u/fretracer · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

These EvaDry are worth their weight in gold. Keeps the unit dry to avoid mold.

u/BornAgainNewsTroll · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

It sounds like your thermometer is inaccurate. Check it against boiling water and a glass full of ice and water.

Besides that, freezers do a bad job (or no job) of circulating air within the unit when they are operating, causing temperature stratification. Pick up one of these and let it run all the time you will have a much more consistent temps throughout the freezer.

Also, since you mentioned frost on the side, get one of these too. It will remove moisture from the air before it has a chance to condense and freeze on the sides. Just remember to recharge it once a month or so.

u/sigismond0 · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

I just keep that in an airtight plastic tub with all of my PLA. Never have any issues. Every couple of months you plug it into a wall outlet for a half-hour to dry it out.

u/mustrdgasnroses · 2 pointsr/magicTCG

It certainly can be a problem. I have a gun safe (fireproof & "waterproof") that I also utilize for MTG, and have had only mild problems, but the relative humidity in my home is on the low side.

If you're looking at a small document style safe (1.3 - 2.5 cu. ft), I recommend a cheap wireless dehumidifier like this:

The above is essentially the exact same product that Stack-On (a lower end gun safe manufacturer) markets to dehumidify their safes, but without the Stack-On branding and it's about $10 cheaper.

u/auryncharm · 2 pointsr/BeardedDragons

I keep a mini dehumidifier in the corner of the enclosure - It does help a bit. Or you could look into one of the small electric dehumidifiers for the room.

u/spudsta · 2 pointsr/ValveIndex

sorry, something like this. I use it in my camera pelican case to protect my stupidly expensive camera gear from fungus, which is known to plague camera lenses. You dont want to lock optics in a dark area with moisture, and i would not want funus, mold or general funk growing on my index. I found the plug in rechargeable silica gel to be the most convenient. Alternatively you can find a tin can version and recharge it via putting the can in the oven. I am lazy so i chose the outlet version. It felt more secure and less likely to spill beads everywhere.

u/Anvil-Hands · 2 pointsr/mtgfinance

I would fill fat pack boxes with the toploaders, and then put them inside a rubbermaid container that has a seal around the edge. I recommend putting one of these in the container. It is basically a giant desiccant pack that can be replenished once it fills up.

u/hotandchevy · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

The dehumidifier we were looking at was this sorta thing. It's not electric, gel based, but then you plug it in to reverse (de-un-humidify) the gel back to normal.

u/RedditPoster05 · 2 pointsr/Silverbugs

I personally dont worry about it. Ive seen guys with 999 coins that go back to the 80s and then people with sterling or 90% coins that are hundred years old. It really depends on where you live and the climate. If you are worried there are some recharable gun safe storage dehumidifiers that are inexpensive that you just have to charge over night once a month.

Just buy a couple of these. They are kind of large but will do the job fine.

u/Jon_Hanson · 2 pointsr/GoRVing

I have one of these. It doesn't require any power until you want to dry out the crystals that absorb the moisture. For really humid environments you should probably have several.

u/AZBeer90 · 2 pointsr/smoking

Not a pellet user, but I use plastic bins for storing grain. If you're going to use a plastic bin, consider investing in a dehumidifier. The eva dry sells on Amazon for about $20 and it is rechargeable. Good for keeping your pellets mold free and dry

New and Improved Eva-dry E-333 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier

u/ZombieGrot · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

Agree with u/pyrohmstr that it's likely that the filament has adsorbed too much water. The water flashes to steam and makes those bumps. Often called "popcorning."

It may also be due to residue of your previous filament in the nozzle & feed tube. PETG doesn't intermix well with other filaments so it can scrap the other stuff out in bits rather than being melted together.

More likely to be moisture, though. A low oven can be used to bake the moisture out but it's difficult to gauge between not enough time and too much time. Too long = ruined filament. I'd bag that spool with a rechargeable dehumidifier. This is one example but there are many others like that one.

u/mariomonster20 · 2 pointsr/personalfinance

Congrats! When we moved into our home we got this one I believe: has worked well so far, the latch is very strong, but I think the keys are a weak point on all these types of safes. I just leave ours unlocked honestly and just use it in case of fire. It has plenty of space to hold all our documents, passports, checkbooks, debit cards, birth certificates, whatever. One thing to note is that waterproof safes can get moldy. To solve that, We also put in an Eva Dry: which works amazing. Just take it out every few months and plug it in for a couple hours and it's ready to go back in and keep everything dry.

u/LezC00k · 2 pointsr/treedibles

What about this ?
Apparently works with crystals and whatnot, if it works would be perfect:

  2. place Eva Dry in big tupperware
  3. close tupperware and place in fridge

    It would hurt my wallet to try and fail xD
u/WhatPlantsCrave · 2 pointsr/CryptoCurrency

FYI OP, What you have there is a regular fire safe. As others have pointed out it's no good when it comes to burglars...but it's halfway decent at protecting papers and documents through a fire.

If you are worried about protection from fire and storing electronic media, DVD's etc...What you should have picked up is a fire safe rated to protect Media. They have SIGNIFICANTLY more fire protection/insulation and will give your device a much much better chance of surviving a fire. Not sure where you're located but here is one on Amazon.

Two more notes...remember fire is put out with it wouldn't hurt to put your flash drive in a small watertight pelican case within your safe.
For those mentioning humidity in a safe this item does a great job and is reusable vs. many other other items which are one time use.

I have around 40 spools and live in Florida, so humidity is a big concern. I keep the filament in these. One of these to keep the box dry. I stick one of these to monitor the humidity in the box. They always read < 10%.

My usual routine is to not put anything into a dry box that hasn't been dried out in this. Usually I just put everything in a stack and dry them all out on Saturday mornings.

I have only had it a few days, so I really can't say how effective it is.

Once you have multiple rolls of filament, I'd suggest getting a well-sealing plastic box for them to store them with a mini dehumidifier. I got this one, no power needed except when refreshing it:

I also found the following useful for the build which others had already mentioned:

  • a screwdriver-style Allen wrench for 2.5mm since that's by far the most frequently used
  • flush clippers
  • good illumination, get an extra lamp if needed
  • a granite countertop for checking if the frame is level

    Enjoy the build! I'd recommend using the online instructions and checking comments left by others.
u/brewerintexas · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I use two of these in my fermentation chamber. It keeps everything really dry. I've found it helps the most when fermenting ales in the 60 degree range. It's a perfect environment for mold to grow. Moderate temperatures and high humidity. Since I started using those things several years ago that problem has been eliminated. Great thing is, when they're full you can just plug them into an outlet overnight and they're ready to go again.

u/upsidedownbackwards · 2 pointsr/GoRVing

I have two of these I run on low at 4amps each, one in the front, one in the bedroom. The nice part about these is if you are running on generator you can get them nice and hot and they keep things comfy for a long time.

By my desk I have a ceramic heater I leave on low (4amps). It blows on my feet and makes me feel warm at cooler indoor temperatures. I think it feels a lot better having 3 4amp heaters than having just one of them turned on high. It keeps the walls warmer. So far I've been good down to 15 degrees with no problems at all. I'm warmer than a lot of the houses I lived in with lathe/plaster walls!

u/travistravels247 · 2 pointsr/TinyHouses

Insulation is top priority, I'd suggest rolls of fiberglass in between the 2×4s and then foam insulation on top of the boards and fiberglass. A electric heater like this is what I suggest.

You may also want to either replace the windows or have swing open hatch/shutters to cover the windows to help from heat escaping.

Look around for led strips for lighting, they can be put in an edge or corner and not take up space.

Imo, if you haven't already bought that shed, and you want to save money, it's a lot cheaper to build your own.

Something like this is what we use in combination with the plastic wrap you already have.

It does get HOT to touch, so if you have kids it might not be a good idea, but it works well for us.

u/limitless__ · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Is the ceiling of the laundry room (baby rooms floor) insulated? If it's a mechanical closet setup with your furnace then it's unconditioned space. Transitions from unconditioned to conditioned space should always be insulated. So if it's not, do that. Consider rigid foam insulation as that's WAY better than batts.

Next place to check is the attic. Maybe the attic area above the babies room is not well insulated? In my old house my master was always freezing and when I got up into the attic and finagled my way into the area above the master I found no insulation at all. Thanks builders.

Does this room have a lot of windows? Rooms with more windows will always be colder.

What I do is have a radiant heater like this in all the kids rooms. I set the thermostat to 62 in the house but the radiators are 68. That way it heats up the kids rooms nicely at night but you're not running the furnace in the entire floor to heat up one room:

Also, don't close off air vents. If you do cold air will get sucked in the windows as the room will be under negative pressure.

u/ppardee · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

Go old-school and get a canary (or a few).

Some filament are absolutely going to produce toxic 'fumes' (which includes particles that aren't actually fumes). I have printed ABS in my enclosure and there is a layer of ABS coating the inside of my enclosure panels from the fumes.

Carbon filter material is dirt cheap. ( So are fans. It's pretty easy to put together a filter unit that will handle the inside of a 3D printer enclosure (and the printer should be enclosed). You can also get carbon pellets used in aquariums for much less, but I haven't found a good way to use those for air filtering, which makes my face sad.

You're right that it's really hard to find good, solid data, but PETG currently appears to be safe. PLA appears to be relatively safe. ABS doesn't appear to be safe and is pain to print.

u/BRUMBPO__TUNGUS · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

How is your filter designed? I never see powder with my custom HEPA and activated carbon (this plus a tube packed tightly with this) recirculating filtration system, but it's much higher CFM and pressure (I'm pushing air with a high-speed Delta fan) than small commercial designs. I've printed polycarbonate/ABS/PEEK/PLA without noticeable fumes or particulates.

u/W1ckedWench · 2 pointsr/SpaceBuckets

I apologize in advance for the long script links But I wouldn't purchase a computer fan. I don't believe it would survive the lag of adding a carbon filter on it so I decided to purchase something slightly more powerful and, I think, that the desk top fans will work better with a filter on top I'm actually looking at other carbon cut to fit filters. I see a lot of people here are very nervous about smell. I want to experiment this concept for everyone so I can help allay their fears a bit. I will keep everyone posted on the outcome.

u/CliffordAlgebra · 2 pointsr/bouldering

None of the maintenance solutions I'm about to suggest to you work with an already super stinky pair in my experience but this is okay! As far as I know Ocun doesn't have any leather shoes so you should be fine taking the nuclear option and scrubbing the inside with rubbing alcohol. While I don't know the particular chemical make up Ocun uses for their rubber, many rubbers lose elasticity through prolonged exposure to alcohol so don't do this every day.

The general recommendations I see are either [Boot Bananas] ( or Mini Moso's (I use these).

As for the stink being particular to your brand, well I don't know it to be notably stinky but certainly synthetics tend to hold stink far more than leather does. If you're willing to deal with the stretching issues for sizing you might consider making your next pair leather.

u/SparkingtonIII · 2 pointsr/bouldering

I got these Mini Moso Natural Air Purifying Bags.

They are essentially the same thing (bamboo charcoal) without the essential oils (add a few drops if it's necessary) or the hefty price.

They've made a huge difference. My shoes smell a lot less, and more importantly, my bag no longer stinks like hell. I no longer fear putting other clothing in it. I still occasionally spray the insides of my shoes with cheap unflavored vodka, but these mini moso things have made a huge difference.

Oh, FYI the riveted hole isn't big enough for a biner. I just tied them together with loop of spare cord.

u/arise420 · 2 pointsr/SpaceBuckets

I'd have to dig up the posts but you need to hit at least 70-90cfm in high static pressure design, and you have to pull through the filter for it all to work. By "pull through" I mean your air needs to get sucked into the filter's walls and pulled out the flange. It is most efficient that way. I personally use this fan and run it at about 70-80 cfm. The reason why you don't need a huge fan is because a 5-gal bucket is less than one cubic foot of space, compared to 48cf in a small tent, or hundreds for a small room.

I also think that you're defining "stealth" a little too broadly and it's skewing your expectations. It almost sounds like you're upset at us for false advertising or something. Spacebuckets designed a certain way could sit next to other stuff in a garage or closet and not stick out. Smaller ones can be taken out to your car in a pinch without disrupting the grow too much. Not wanting to broadcast your grow by hiding its smell and sound -- definitely falls under OpSec.

If price is a huge concern, I'd save up more and start with a bigger budget.

u/h22lude · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Muffin fan. Comes with plug instead of PC hook up.

I installed this on top of 4" diameter piece of duct or PVC. I cut a slot in the bottom. This pulls the cold air from the bottom and pushes up top.

u/Sammy42 · 2 pointsr/SpaceBuckets


2 black 32 gallon trash cans from Home Depot

black gorilla tape

1 black lid

1 grey brute lid- has actual flat top on lid which makes light mounting easy...

rotary tool- drill bit and cutoff tool

3 cans of white spray paint + primer

300w mars

24 hour timer

surge protector


90 degree black PVC elbows(top one is 5" pvc I think??? street style(?) has longer bend, bottom one is 4")

bottom half of brute is set up as drain pan

With the lids, I wanted some way to keep the light well ventilated and cool, but also not slide around so I made hole just big enough for the lights to shine through on bottom flat lid and then I cut off everything sticking up on black lid and mounted that on top with a larger hole.

Bucket is in closet where temps are currently 77 F inside and outside bucket. The temp of the room connecting to the closet is about 2-4* cooler and the closet door is open. However I am running a 40w CFL way above the rooting clone which probably isn't helping temps.

I currently have my original clone in the bucket but since it is not the healthiest plant and I've learned a lot since getting it, I have a clone on the side that I'm waiting for to root and then I will put it in smartpot with coco, throw out old plant, and start fresh with my new setup and knowledge.

Biggest issue I'm having is the exhaust fan is rather loud and I'm not sure what product to buy to slow it. The fan has an AC plug on it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Big thanks to this sub for inspiration, knowledge, and help with my builds!

u/Gideon_Drake · 2 pointsr/SpaceBuckets

If you ever care to look at numbers to give you an idea (the next time you build a bucket or upgrade perhaps?) check for CFM (cubic feet per minute, higher=better.) Some fans will be better despite being USB, PC might be tend to be stronger due to the 12V vs. 5v issue discussed below.

That said, why limit yourself to USB? I didn't feel like doing any wiring (aside from reversing the fan in my LED UFO) and so bought two of these and am planning on plugging them in directly to my power strip, as I am currently building.

Check out the Smoke Buddy or the Sploofy. They eliminates smell by using a carbon filter, a mini version of what they use on grow ops to eliminate smell. Lasts around 3-500 uses. The Spoofy has a replaceable filter inside. I prefer the SB because they have a Jr version which is great for portability...I'm a server and I use it to vape my hopper in the bathroom stall with zero smell. But if that's not a concern then the spoofy is great because it has replaceable filters, where the SB you have to buy a whole new unit. They all eliminate the smell very well to nothing.

Respect your parents op. It's so easy to go outside and toke. If you absolutely must smoke inside and don't want to cause your parents troubles in the future, you could buy a smoke buddy.

For example: (They work really well)

u/Wachamacalit · 2 pointsr/vaporents

Get the actual Ploom Pax. People have posted about knock offs that are okay, but it sounds like most of the knock off versions are bad.

The smell is no where as strong as a joint. If you mix tobacco in (blunts) then you may be better able to hide the smell with tobacco smoke. But the smell from a Pax won't stick to your clothes and hair so much. If it's really important, you should try using something like this:

As far as the smell of the device, it's not too noticable if you keep it clean. The bud is not in an air-tight compartment, so I would just keep it in a zip lock bag if you carry it around where you're not supposed to.

As far as leaving weed in the oven compartment, again, it is not sealed. The oven has a lid that secures with magnets, but it is made to allow air to flow through the weed while you inhale. The weed will get stale after a while. However, because it gets toasted, most of the moisture will evaporate on your first few puffs. When you put it away half used, is should be good to go for a few days or even a week or two (depending on how much moisture is in the air around it).

u/iLubDango · 2 pointsr/saplings

Invest in a smoke buddy or a sploof

u/dhlock · 2 pointsr/trees

Yep, for sure possible. Probable even.
It'll depend on the bud and method of consumption though. Joints of dank bud would be the worst for sure. Maybe pick up a smoke Buddy?
It's super good that you do care about being a good neighbor though lol. :)

u/SM_Jewlian · 2 pointsr/trees
u/Tashizzlet · 2 pointsr/canadients

Vaping is definitely the best way to be discrete. I'd suggest you invest in an MFLB very small extremely portable, affordable and easy to hide. If you're looking to spend a bit more on a better vape take a look around that site, it's awesome. Also BC Vapor.

One great tip i'll give you that I use to use was putting a bit of loose (not store bought, you don't want to be ingesting chemicals) tea in with the bud, really helps the smell, also invest in a smoke buddy, it's not dirt cheap like a sploof but in my opinion it's worth the investment.

Good luck!!

u/alf3311 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Condensation is somewhat inevitable but you can combat it by making sure the keezer is as airtight as possible. Get a tube of silicone and seal up any gaps around the faucet shanks, thermometer probe wiring, etc. If the top of your collar is uneven you should also try to rectify that.

Once the freezer is pretty airtight you can deal with the rest of the moisture with one of these Eva-dry rechargeable desiccants (it will absorb moisture, then periodically you take it out and plug it in and it will heat up to drive the moisture off. Repeat.)

u/geekbleek · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I live in a dry climate, but moisture still condensed like crazy in my keezer and fermentation chambers. Someone in boating had recommended these re-useable dehumidifiers and they absolutely work wonders. Only have to plug them in to dry out the desiccant every few months. Went from half an inch of water to dry as a bone.

u/xrayphoton · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Looks good. I would suggest installing a computer fan to circulate air. You can wire it into an old cell phone charger to power it. And if you notice the freezer is getting damp inside, you can get a dehumidifier like this:

Second the ozone machine. Get an industrial unit like this, not a crappy tower air purifier with ozone deal. Shut this in a room on high for 24 hours, turn it off, open a window to let the room air out and it will do wonders. I used this on my mom's place who roomed with a chimney and a car with so much cigarette ash embedded in the upholstery that it looked like a texture.

u/GlamGlamGlam · 2 pointsr/AskMen

I think the generators come with a timer. You do not want to let it run for too long.

As for the run time, it depends on the size of the room. I have not used one yet but I was looking into it recently.

I think the typical case is to run it on a timer for an hour or two with the windows and door sealed then wait like an hour or so to let the ozone concentration fall back to normal and then open the windows and doors. For tenacious odors you might need to run it multiple times but every time you use it it should improve the smell.

i was looking into this model:

The AC unit will act as a dehumidifier as well. I got a 12k btu device that I keep in the tent and I vent the hot air from it into the duct that pulls heat through my lamp and out through the carbon filter into my laundry room. Similar to this one.

This setup has been flawless in my 5x5x7.

I think your routine looks pretty good. My recommendations would be to add a moisturizing toner with hyaluronic acid twice a day, switch to a non-foaming cleanser, and add an occlusive at the end of your routine.

Also, because you’re in the desert, I would strongly recommend buying a humidifier. I live in a tropical environment (Florida) and I still sleep with my humidifier on high every night. It helps so much.

You mentioned your skin being sensitive: I am too, and all of the below products have not bothered me at all. Don’t use the honey mask if you’re allergic to bees.

Mine is the [Vicks warm mist humidifier sold on Amazon] ( (I think it's currently the #1 bestseller in humidifiers).

I love it. I've bought two (I needed them for two different places), have had them for three years and love them. Would highly recommend.

The auto shutoff function is great! I also run it while I'm at work, since it just turns itself off once it's out of water. I don't use the Vicks serum/liquid vaporizing feature, but I've heard people say that it's useful during cold season.

Whatever you choose, make sure to buy one with warm/hot steam, not cold mist. The cold mist humidifiers spritze the air above them with cool water. It definitely doesn't truly humidify anything. I've tried several of them with no luck. Also, they tend to over moisten the area right around the humidifier (since most of the "mist"/water spritz falls to the ground) and can subsequently cause mold.

Running a warm most humidifier has he added benefit of cutting down on heat costs -- depending on the setting, it can raise the temperature of your room up to 10F (low setting can prevent this). Also, they don't require filters or any added purchases.

Edit: link and auto shutoff comment

u/ZombieRapist · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

You might want a fan speed controller, unless you just want to always run it full blast.

Ratchet rope hanger can be helpful for adjusting light height. Also something to hang your fan... I went with paracord since I already had a bunch.

Smart/fabric pots are a popular option.

Some sort of fan(s), the small clip on ones are popular, can also go for the standing oscillating ones or a small one like this

A tent that small will limit you, I'd spring for a slightly larger one unless you really have space constraints.

Swiffer's are pretty great for cleaning floors and they aren't expensive. Also get a small vacuum for any carpeting. If you like coffee, definitely get a Keurig. If you're in an area that has cold winters, a comforter for your bed will be important (there are some really cute ones at Target). For when it's warmer out, having a small fan will help the air in your room circulate better. As for LED light strips, this one from Amazon worked really well for me.

u/Pseudogenesis · 2 pointsr/ADHD

Okay, listen. I know The Truth. The One Great Truth. and I'm going to share it with you. Ready? Here it is:


Yes, fans. Those things that push air around. Get a reliable little 10+ inch personal fan for ~15 bucks, like this or this. It'll last you years.

Now, I know what you're thinking. Fans, really? That's the ultimate truth of the universe?

Yes. Fans are everything.

You only need one. Put it on a stand next to your bed, about 1-2 feet away from where your face will be. Aim it properly, turn it on, wrap yourself up and enjoy pure bliss. Your body will be warm and your face will be caressed by a pleasant cool breeze for the entire night. Hot flashes? Who gives a shit? Just turn that baby up one notch and go back to sleep. Boom, done.

It's not an exaggeration when to say that for me, sleeping with a fan is at least twice as easy and enjoyable as without. I've been sleeping this way for at least a decade.

Here are just a few bullet points in case you're not completely head over your heels in love with fans yet.

  • They practically block out all noise, cutting through distractions and allowing you to sleep through everything but your alarm clock.

  • They keep your face pleasantly cool, and provide a little cooling to your upper body as well, depending on how many covers you have.*

  • They make it easier and more comfortable to breathe

  • They astound your friends and make your enemies jealous

  • They provide a soothing canvas of white noise for you to project your dreams upon.

  • They cure cancer

    Don't listen to the Koreans. Sleeping with a fan on won't hurt you. If anything it will make you stronger. Praise the fan.

Have you tried specifically desensitizing him to the noises? I know this can be hard in an apartment where there are SO MANY noises and some that the pup can hear and you can't but it can be a start. Kikopup has a good video.

I live in an apartment as well and after about 2 months of "settling in" time my dog started barking at everything. How much exercise is he getting? What kind of dog is he? Sometimes they bark for boredom or attention when they normally wouldn't if they're too wound up. Honestly, upping exercise and general stimulation will likely help a lot.

Another we did that helped A LOT was the relaxation protocol. My dog is far more relaxed inside now, even if his needs haven't been 100% met in terms of exercise and training for the day.

In the mean time, I would get a small fan and run it in wherever he is hanging out. It'll create some constant, consistent noise and drown out some of the other things he's hearing (neighbors tuning a key in their apt 3 floor up)

u/Kylista · 2 pointsr/legaladvice

As other posters have mentioned, sometimes if a portable air conditioner doesn't seem like it's working, it's because there isn't enough circulation.

I was in a situation similar to yours, trying to cool down a living area with vaulted ceilings in the summer with a 14,000btu portable AC, and it didn't seem like it was doing shit. It was nice to sit in front of, but 3 feet away it was hot as hell.

The solution was around air circulation. I actually ended up opening a bedroom down the hall and opening a window and putting a box fan in it to blow air out.

2 hours later the living area was pleasantly cool and so was my bedroom, which was a nice bonus.

Since only u/roadbird21 really answered this I'll jump in. Do you own the house or rent it? Is it long term rent (like you know you'll have it for 5+ years ) or short term? And do you have alot of money or a little?

Short term: (if you don't own the house/don't have a ton of money)Dehumidifiers are a great option. Dry air is not as sweat inducing as wet air is. Also get one or two portable AC units. As large as you can afford (by BTU) such as this one.

These work by having an exaust for hot air. Route this up the stairs and outside the nearest window. You can buy extra tubing from home Depot. Get enough AC for double the room size.

Medium term (you have more money, a long rent that's several years). Something like this would be good

Long term: you have a long rent, own the property, or have a ton of money

This is what your looking for

Note, I do a ton of DIY projects, including plumbing and electrical for my house. I probably would get someone to install this anyhow. Also, if your renting. You need to talk with your land lord.

Sticking it in a oven you can run at 105C for 8 hours is a great way.

Otherwise, you could build a descant bag. forget using rice, it doesn't work terribly well.

You can use descants based on calcium chloride.

The stuff is available retail as a product called "damp-rid"

Put it in a rather air-tight box with the descant device in the box. It may take days to dry the pla well.

Place a small fan in the box to circulate the air to speed things up.

Evaporation triggers the growth of pins and a good indicator that you're lacking FAE is "fuzzy feet" (it looks like fluffy growth on the base of the stipe growing upwards) -- if you have more than a half inch of fuzzy feet, u need more FAE.

rice is a bad idea. it doesn't work for phones and it's an urban myth. don't do that either. your best and most inexpensive bet is to construct a desiccant chamber and couple that with a fan if possible.

here's a desiccant product u can get online or at lowes/home depot/walmart and some more information about using dessicants for drying

good luck.

u/scotch_please · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I've been meaning to try DampRid for a room with a similar issue. I haven't yet so I can't tell you how well the stuff works but maybe you can test it out in one of the smellier rooms.

Unfortunately this won't solve the core issue but might help until you can get the specialist in.

u/mightyprometheus · 2 pointsr/oneplus

You could try dumping it in something like this for a day or two.

u/jfalc0n · 2 pointsr/Vive

My only thought (and I'm going to try this myself) is perhaps to get a large plastic container which will fit both the Vive Headset and container of Damp-Rid to keep out the moisture.

Yes, condensation is going to be a factor if you don't take steps to keep it dry in cold weather.

u/hiyosilver64 · 2 pointsr/findareddit

I would suggest replacing the door to the closet with one that has slats to provide better air circulation --- also you can use a product called Damp-Rid --

u/riera90 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

If it doesn't smeel or look burn it should be ok, just don't turn it on, unplugg the cord and battery (of the motherboard), doing that is just metal and pcb, let it dry, if you have dehumidifiers
get some near the pc (not inside, as it has quemicals that could damage the pcb's and conections) with the sidepanel open, also get the hard drives out, the water shoundn't be able to get inside them, but the humidity of the case could destroy them,
the same goes for diskdrives.
A good idea would be to disasembly the psu to make sure it dryes properly, and get the motherboard out of the case for the same reason (for the back part of it) (and personaly I would disconect ram, pci boards and cpu).

Be patient and everything would be ok, (sometimes I wash pc's with water and to the time no one broke to me for that).

After it dryes up the only damage would be the wiped bios configuration, witch you would need to configure again.

Excuse my broken english, not my mother tongle.

Good luck.

Edit: It would be a good idea to check the psu later with a multimeter.

Edit 2: If the water that felt on the pc was dirty maybe you want to wash it with a gentle stream of clean water (distilled water at best)

u/astralrayn · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I've seen stuff like this for whole closets but keep in mind I've never personally used them so I'm not sure how good they are! You could also look into a dehumidifier but those are much more spendy.

u/opusagogo9000 · 2 pointsr/Entrepreneur

absolutely true. However you might be interested in what I found on another subreddit, i can't remember which subreddit. Its a 500w super efficient air conditioner, good for 200sqft. Right now my Kill-a-watt displays 535 watts, and that includes my Desktop (T61 laptop 44w), second monitor (26" 25w), and lamp (23w CFL), a bunch of USB devices and router (10w), and the air conditioner is on low setting. I've only had to set it to high once. Today's temperature was 93. It helped me get through the 104 temperatures we had a few weeks. All I had to do was front run the heat around 1pm. One of those tiny $100 harbor freight 900w generators could easily do that for about $2 a day in gas. Or two 300w panels and an inverter, probably wouldn't even need a battery. Its doable now days! Also I notice 90% of my heat is from the roof because I have no shade.

u/mrrp · 2 pointsr/askscience

Get yourself a cheap window air conditioner for $125.00

Depending on the cost of electricity where you live, you should be able to run it for no more than $.10/hour. (500 watts @ $.14 per kilowatt hour = $.07 per hour.)

u/data_wrangler · 2 pointsr/nyc Their prices are better than most hardware stores and Home Depot, and if you have Prime or sign up for the trial you can get it shipped 2-day for free, or 1-day for $3.99. Then you just have to get it upstairs and into the window.

This Frigidaire 5,000BTU unit is pretty highly rated and is only $115.

u/dianeruth · 2 pointsr/Frugal

If you stick with fans, a good trick for when it gets really hot is to stick a bowl of ice in front of the fan.

A window air conditioner is also an option.

u/bruestle2 · 2 pointsr/worldnews

A cheap AC unit isn't $1,000 here, luckily. More like $120 (78 pounds). You should be able to ship it from somewhere that doesn't have a 10x markup on top of the regular markup.

u/jack_perignon · 2 pointsr/AskMen

Bam. $115. It works just fine to cool my bedroom which is all I need since that's bed and desktop PC area.

u/jamilbk · 2 pointsr/TinyHouses

Edit: This similar thread may be useful.

I just spent forever designing the power system for my tiny house and if I can offer one piece of advice, use propane for heating. It's much cheaper, efficient, and lower maintenance than electric systems. Plus, since you're in the Bay Area, a low-power window A/C unit like this 450 W fridgidaire should suffice. You can always add a $30 1800 W electric space heater later.

Keep in mind you'll be at least tripling your expected power draw to account for inefficiencies and battery depth-of-discharge. So if you plan to use 6 kWh / day, your battery bank and solar panels should be sized for 18 kWh / day. That's about 10 large 12V 155 Ah batteries. Nearly 1,000 lbs of weight. Since your wool insulation is only about half the R-value of spray foam, you'll need to account for that as well.

tldr; Save yourself the added weight and cost of additional solar, batteries, and inverter and just go with a window unit and propane stove or in-floor radiant system via tankless water heater.

u/FuzzeWuzze · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Lasko Personal Heater is by far the best option IMO, its a heater and fan built in and has automatic thermal shutoff in case your fermentation controller fails.

Those paint can things scare the shit out of me knowing how fast and hot even low wattage light bulbs get. Ive had my STC1000 fail and get stuck on heat, luckily i was using the Lasko and when it hit its thermal shutoff(110F i think) it shut off and wont come back on until you manually switch the power switch off for 15 seconds then back on, even if power to it is cycled on and off by the controller it wont come back on.

I can only imagine the damage that could have been done if a light bulb can was stuck on for the entire weekend when i was away. Best case it would have melted my carboy and inside of my fridge before popping from the heat, worst case a fire.

Besides without a fan any other indirect heat source is worthless.

u/BrewCrewKevin · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Yes, a heat lamp will work fine.

Many people also wire an incandescent light bulb and cover it with a coffee can. Those heat up pretty nicely too.

If you need it to pump out a lot of heat in the winter, I've heard This guy works well.

u/newgirlie · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I have this at work next to my keyboard and it keeps my hands pretty warm.

u/kungfujohnjon1 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

You can find a chest freezer on Craigslist for almost nothing.
I use this tiny space heater for heat. It turns off automatically if it gets too hot, so I’m not worried about it burning down the garage, and it works really well. And everyone loves the Inkbird ITC-308. It’s cheap as all hell and has separate plugs for heating and cooling. That’s pretty much everything you need.

u/rugged_D · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Im in ny and i use this cheap lasko heater along with my inkbird it keeps temps within 1 degree of target

u/mattsupreme · 2 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

This looks neat and would be cool at lans but I don't think there's a big enough need for a product like this. You've got $20 heaters like this on amazon that are tiny and good enough if people were looking for a solution to this problem.

I obviously could be wrong, just my quick thought.

u/bildonia · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I use this little space heater with an InkBird controller.

u/skeletonmage · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I use this space heater from Amazon. I tried a lightbulb in a can but the light bulb ended up busting. I don't remember if it was because I moved it....or it got too hot...but yea, I wasn't a fan either.

That bad boy kicks out some heat though. My chamber sits in an uninsulated shed and I can get it to kick and hold 100F even when ambient temperatures are in the single digits.

u/boxsterguy · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

This is why I went all out and got a chest freezer. I paid $100 for a 5cuft freezer on Black Friday that comfortably fits a 7 gallon Fermonster with plenty of room to spare. Add a temperature controller and a heat source (I'm partial to small personal space heaters) and for less than $200 you get full control over fermentation and cold crashing.

I haven't intentionally lagered anything yet, but I have let beers sit in cold crash for 2+ weeks while waiting for a keg to blow. I guess that's basically lagering.

u/mlwarren88 · 2 pointsr/Frugal

I picked up one of these before it got too cold this year. I keep it under my computer desk and run it sometimes when I feel cold. It's only 200 watts and keeps me decently warm. I have one of these that works well too. The second heater has a low and a high setting (700W, 1500W) and I can heat an entire room with it. When I used it I would turn it on and off depending on the temperature of the room. I use it less now that I have the 200 watt heater because I don't feel so bad running a 200 watt heater constantly. I'd go with the first one if you're wanting to heat yourself, and with the second one if you want to heat the entire room. Running the 200 watt heater is like having two old school light bulbs on, I don't feel too guilty about its power consumption.

u/snarfy · 2 pointsr/FixMyPrint

Warping is caused by uneven cooling. As the top layers cool, they shrink and pull on the lower layers. The trick is to minimize the difference between the extruding temperature and the ambient temperature in the chamber. For ABS at 240c you want the chamber around 80c, but any heat helps. This will cause everything to cool more gradually and evenly, reducing the chances of warping. Increasing the heated bed temperature can also help for the same reasons.

I put two 4ohm 50W power resistors on a cpu heatsink to make a small heater, but if I were doing it again I'd just make one of these things blow into the chamber. My heater is 72W, that one is 200W.

u/manponyannihilator · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I have two outdoor fermentation chambers in Alaska, gets to -40F. That means when I ferment with Kveik the temp difference can be >120 degrees.

My chambers are chest freezers. I use a reptile bulb to make large swings in temp (no safety switch) and this to maintain.

The desk heater turns off if it rips or if it has been on for a long time.
It barely costs anything to heat and have not had any problems in my 3 winters of doing this.

u/CloneWerks · 2 pointsr/ender3

They make a nice little 200 watt heater that is awesome for applications like this.

u/StanleyVermin · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing I use this in my 16 cubic foot freezer fermenter. It does a great job. Used it in my 7 cubic foot freezer. I also have a small fan running 24/7.

Edit: heater has been going for 2 years.

u/TheGremlyn · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Happy to answer any questions people may have!

I'll start with a link to my build post:

Temperature Control

The chamber was built to use the cooling system from an old mini fridge, the kind with the coils on the back instead of integrated into the walls. I started with a Ranco controller for cooling only. I lived in a climate where it didn't really get cold, so heating was not required. I now live in a climate where not only does it get cold, but the fermentation chamber lives in the garage so it has to be heated.

I built a dual stage controller using an STC-1000 in a tool box: and bought the Lasko Personal Space Heater, which I view as excellent because it not only heats but has a built in fan.

I also added two fans to the system to make sure the temperature is even in the chamber. One is always on, the other only when the cooling system kicks in. That means that when heating or cooling there are two fans runnings.

Build Design

I needed two things in a fermentation chamber: 1) space for two sanke kegs, which I use to ferment my 11 gal batches, and 2) front loading because I refuse to try to lift 11 gal of beer in a sanke keg up and over the rim of a chest freezer.

I plan to rework the door to be a single door for better sealing, but it holds temps well enough right now that I don't worry much and it is a low priority change. I originally did two doors as it wasn't going to be feasible to have one where it was designed to live.

u/TheDunadan · 2 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

Buy a small 200 Watt heater, and put it behind your mousepad. It's worked quite well for me.

u/holybarfly · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

A tad more expensive then a bulb and paint can, but I use this small heater and it works awesome.

u/RARNC · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

It'll be heated too, ordered one of these guys: along with some 120v 120mm fans to move the air around.

It's likely I'll throw a collar on it too since I can't leave anything alone. :)

u/Flam5 · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I agree. If OP has a flashlight, respirator, some sort of eye protection and a ladder, I'd simply take a peak, and take pictures.

Short of that, OP, I'd simply recommend getting an air purifier with a UV filter such as this until it's addressed. If that's too much to deal with until the landlord comes back, I'd just look into shacking up at a friend or family's place for a few days, especially with an infant in the mix, as infants would be more susceptible to health problems due to mold being in the air.

u/Bmorehon · 2 pointsr/BroMoHousekeeping

You need a HEPA filter. I like this one because there are 2 filters, one that catches the hair and big stuff that I can just rinse off, and one that catches the nitty gritty that needs to be replaced every so often. With 3 dogs and 4 cats, this thing is running 90% of the time, even when we aren't home.

Also, when was the last time you changed your AC unit filter?

u/nerd0001 · 2 pointsr/gadgets

The quality of the filter does matter...the higher the rating, the better it will filter out bacteria and other harmful particles. Having a multistage filter with charcoal will further pull odors out of the air. My Dr has one of these in his small office

Here is a guide to the MERV raitings it shows what types of particles each level will generally filter out. The HEPA filters will start at level 17 and have their own scale.

You typical lowes/ homedepot air filters for your home are around a MERV 5 for basic and 11 for the higher end.

u/kbrsuperstar · 2 pointsr/CleaningTips

I like the dusters so much I'm considering trying the dry floor swiffer to tackle the cat hair between vacuuming days.

(I have another one on my wish list that has good reviews but I haven't tried.)

u/Paulievouz · 2 pointsr/cat

I had crazy allergies too when I first got my cat Roo. You do eventually build up an immunity, but to be fair it took me months and I was even considering seeing an allergist for shots.

The only thing that helped was taking claritin or zyrtec with a purifier I bought on amazon:

I also tried tapering off the claritin to every other day until I was finally exhibiting mild symptoms such as occasional sneezing and coughing, which I had a proair to combat.

See your doctor for allergy prescriptions or an allergist if you want to take the shot route. Other than that it'll definitely go away.

I'm pretty poor (lol) so my favorite "budget" HEPA filter is this Germ Guardian tower. The smaller one was perfect for a 1 bedroom apartment. We tried a cheap Honeywell before this one and it was SO NOISY.

u/Kinaestheticsz · 2 pointsr/AnimeFigures

Get a room air purified and just run it on low all the time. It will cut down the dust SIGNIFICANTLY in such a small, enclosed space as your figures are in. Something like this would do the trick, and for not that much money overall. It would allow you to be, as you state that you want to, really really lazy :P!

u/killing1sbadong · 2 pointsr/MushroomGrowers

I had posted a similar question earlier and there didn't seem to be much response to it. From what I've read online, oyster mushrooms have pretty strong sporulation, and you can develop allergies etc from breathing a ton of it. With 9x5lb blocks that will probably be a lot of spores, and taking a few precautions is never a bad idea.

I am setting up a shelf greenhouse similar to your setup, and my plan is to put HEPA filters on the 120mm (computer/muffin) fans to filter the exhaust from the greenhouse.

There is a great 3D printing part designed for this exact thing.

I've printed it and it seems good so far, but I haven't actually finished setting it up. By cutting correctly shaped holes in the greenhouse (probably securing the fan with zipties) and sealing around it, you should be able to fix both your FAE problem and prevent most of the spores from leaving the greenhouse.

HEPA filters are usually 0.2-0.5 micron, and the spores are on the order of 2 micron, so they should work pretty well. As a backup / to keep the room tidy in general, I've also picked up one of these floor fans with a HEPA filter off of Amazon. That will also help remove them from the air, as some will definitely get loose over time.

Once I have my system set up I'm planning on putting up a few photos, but it'll be another week or two.

Sorry for the wall of text, hope it helps!

u/LongUsername · 1 pointr/CPAP

It's not going to have enough airflow if you place it under the covers.

Your better solution may be to elevate it and get a warm air room humidifier and place it on the same table as your CPAP. I also agree you should get it off the floor: air intakes on the floor are just horrible for sucking stuff up. Even getting it 6" off the floor makes a huge difference (ask anyone who works on computers)

If it's still too cold, maybe a heating pad placed behind the machine (not under) below the air intake would help warm it up. Probably go with an under-tank reptile one, as they are designed for continuous use unlike a medical one. You'd probably want to put styrofoam underneath it and some tiles or something on top for thermal mass, and maybe place an aluminum heatsink on top to help warm the air.

What is your room like? Really big open space with a lot of fresh air coming in or a smaller space with more air output than input?

The best way is to get a fogger. You can also get a 5 gal bucket with a bubbler and a box fan gently blowing air over it

Or something like this

You can play with how much fresh are you are bringing in too. If outside the RH is low and cold just decrease intake.

Remember though, your plants should be getting really good air flow

Run it with the side panel off and the fan pointed inside. It is 100% going to fuck up the airflow in your case, but the static pressure of a desk fan is going to be orders of magnitude higher than most case fans, that the sloppy airflow matters a lot less.

u/ggggbabybabybaby · 1 pointr/nononono
u/AspiringNoobGrower · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Thanks for all the suggestions!

I was originally going to go on amazon and get a grow tent. My living situation changed since then which is why it took me a few months to get to this point. I now need a smaller solution which is why I thought about building the grow box. I looked for pre-built ones but anything half-decent is $500+ which is unacceptable for me at the moment.

Regarding the nutrients, I found plenty of "weed specialized" nutrients on the internet, but they are incredibly expensive to ship here and it's just more fluff. I read the same about the "time released" nutrients being no good, I will try to see if I can find that Fox starting soil everyone says is so great at ACE Hardware, and then see if they have non-time delayed nutrients like Dyna-Grow, but I doubt it.

I wrote down what you said about the pot sizes, this is what I've done least amount of research on, will try to get at least 4 plastic 10+ inch pots in the box. I really only want 4 plants max in this, so the biggest 4 pots I can squeeze in there will do.

Regarding the inline fan, I responded to /u/Cuicos above and I think I will get this inline fan instead:

Using the same ducting technique I described in my post.

I will also have this fan somewhere in the middle of the box or at the bottom where the intake is:

I really really can't spend anymore on this box, we're looking at 300 dollars now for the entire setup with the new fans. CFLs would be a good extra for my next grow, if my first grow is successful.

Thanks for all the advice!

u/breakbread · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Get a good fan. Something like this, though I'm sure there are cheaper alternatives. I don't even live in a noisy environment anymore but I've conditioned myself to sleeping with a fan on. I just turn it toward the wall because I don't want the air blowing directly on me, and let the noise drown out everything else. It's very peaceful once you get used to it.

u/sandybarefeet · 1 pointr/Cruise

As mentioned, on many ships there is a retractable line. If there isn't I also recommend getting some heavy duty small magnetic hooks on Amazon (at least 25lbs strength or so probably) and some paracord and use that. The hooks come in super handy for other things too...we hung our key card lanyards on them so they didn't get lost and we'd pass them on the way out reminding us to grab them.

Anyway, no matter where we hung our clothes, they never seemed to dry. So the last time I cruised I brought a small fan in my carry on LIKE THIS . Best decision ever! Worth the spot it took up in my duffel bag. Very light, doesn't weigh much.

I'd aim the fan to where the clothes were hanging overnight, it helped give some nice air circulation in the cabin and also helps drown out hallway noises. We brought a small extension cord to make it easier to aim it where we wanted (in our case into the bathroom) And that was handy as well for the extra outlets to charge phones too. Just a regular extension cord, make sure it does not have a surge protecter.

With the fan the clothes would get dry no prob! You can leave fan on when you leave your cabin as well, just make sure to have a peace of paper or card in the switch by door so your elec doesn't turn off while gone. Our room steward said this was no problem.

u/Refractive_Recursion · 1 pointr/Amd

The Background:

My tentative setup right now has a two gallon reservoir watering a three gallon Smart Pot. I have a 5-10 gal fish tank filter that I've also added an [activated carbon/ammonia neutralizing crystal] ( filter and leveled filter to. I let my water set at room temperature (cycling through the filter) for several days before giving it to the plant. The water is exposed to 388 watts (~84,000lm) of warm and cool white LEDs in a Carbon Dioxide rich environment with filtered airflow.

My city water report is as follows, with ideal levels, followed by current city water levels:

  • Haloacetic Acids (HAA5)(ppb): <60, 25.1
  • Bromate (ppb): <10, 1.8
  • Total Organic Carbon (% Removal): TT, 52.57
  • Barium (ppm): <2, 0.3
  • Flouride (ppm): <4, 0.7
  • Nitrate [measured as Nitrogen] (ppm): <10, 2.4
  • Sodium (ppm): MPL, 16
  • Thallium (ppb): <2, 0.8
  • Alpha emitters (pCi/L): <15, 4.7
  • Uranium (ug/L): <30, 1.4
  • Copper (ppm): <1.3, 0.257
  • Lead (ppb): <15, 0.003

    I presume the Haloacetic Acids are the chlorine they use in the water treatment.

    The Questions:

  • My hope is that the Chlorine will evaporate off over a few days, and that the filters I have will grab onto other problematic elements. Is this reasonable to assume?
  • Should I add anything to my water (pH balance, nutrients, things to help filter contaminants)?
  • How will temperature of water affect my plants? Should I try to cool or warm it before being added to the grow?
  • Does light have any effect on water (or microbial life in the water)? Is it just UV, or can wide spectrum or white lights also have an effect?

u/eleanor110781 · 1 pointr/overclocking

It's not powerful at all, it's a little $12 fan. The blown air is definitely cooler than the air in the case, the air is simply coming from the direction of the living room.

u/Michaelscot8 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Open up your computer case and install one of these badboys just outside of it, I just saved you $80.

(But in all seriousness just install some corsair Case fans for about $10 per fan, the AF 120 series is all you need. Here's the Link)

u/snmnky9490 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Those three seem like a pretty good start.

I'd also get an internal air circulation fan like this or this, and a fan speed controller for your main ventilation fan so it doesn't always have to be on 100% super loud full blast all day.

Are you growing in soil or hydro? Do you have your nutrients, soil or grow media, and pots or net buckets picked out already too?

u/cmcg1227 · 1 pointr/breakingmom

My SO sleeps significantly better with a loud fan or white noise. When he travels he uses an app on his phone. I could take the fan or leave it. The fan just simply keeps me from waking up because it drowns out noise. I'm definitely not "addicted" to it or anything like that. My kid doesn't appear to be addicted to it either, but I have a small fan (specifically this one) in her room that travels with her. Its small enough that it travels easily, but loud enough that it works.

u/nickferr · 1 pointr/sleep

Not sure if these are loud enough for you, I wouldn't consider them "quiet" but they last for years even using them every night:

u/HighStrBlues · 1 pointr/microgrowery

This is the filter I was gonna buy for flowering. What do you think? I know its probably not the best but its affordable plus delivery to my country :) I hope it will be enough for a very small grow room for 1 or max 2 plants at a time. How does it work really? Do I just put it top of the room and leave it there so as to "circulate" and purify the air inside the grow room?

Do you think a similar fan to this would be enough or shall I buy 2 of them just in case? (I will buy a 250W HPS light so that would make up a bit of heat)

u/Poowatereater · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Im not a fan of those clip fans. I have one in my tent and next grow i'll have none. They don't move enough air imo.

this fan is better than almost all the clip fans

I have one of those now and a big boy version of it. Your tent could get away with this and the clip fan.

Most new growers are terrified to cut their plants. It can, most of the time, be beneficial. The plant has a natural response to any type of mutilation that causes it to heal and grow slightly stronger.

for topping, this guide may help. im too lazy atm to do a full write up on how/why/when i top. AVOID MAINLINING IF YOU CARE ABOUT SEED TO HARVEST TIME! that site promotes the shit of mainlining and its silly imo.

u/frolf_for_daze · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I just have this fan in the corner of the tent and run the light at night so it stays cool.

u/slohcinbeards · 1 pointr/LosAngeles

So I have a wall AC unit in my living/dining room but it's too far from the bedroom and even with creative fan placement, zero cool air gets into the bedroom. In my bedroom there is already a pre-installed hose/vent/hole through the wall underneath the window that the previous tenant placed for their portable unit. However, after some additional research I decided that a dual hose unit was a must, so I think I'm going to end up using the window for the two hoses and NOT this pre-installed hole in the wall. I really wanted to go for a window unit, but decided against it due to my window design - I hope this was the right decision (sigh). I ended up going with this model.

u/xgrave01 · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

in the case of a screen, get an portable ac that has a dual outlet into the window, it wouldnt go past the window itself so the screen wont interfere, and its not a "window unit" so you bypass that little restriction as well. this was on sale for 330$ a few days ago

u/ArizonaLad · 1 pointr/DIY

Look into a two hose portable unit. This is just one such product, there are a 100 more. Watch the video on the left side of the link:

u/ClosetCaseGrowSpace · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I'm happy to talk over your plans and help out where I'm able. Looking at your comments in this post, I see a couple things that I'd like to point out to you that you can think about.

It sounds like you've already got the shed framed in and your insulated interior space will be around 6'x9', is this correct? I don't love your idea for the tiny 2' space and a 6x6 grow area. You've got too much space for growing, and no space for working. You don't need to be able to get inside your grow chamber and walk around. To maximize yield, you want your grow chamber to be just large enough for the light you are using and the plants you are growing. Let's say you def want to use a 1000 watt MH/HPS- A 4'x6' grow chamber in the rear of the shed would be perfectly sized for that light. That leaves you about 5'x6' for a work space/lung room. You need room to work. You are going to want a chair, a desk, shelves for supplies and space for tools and hardware. A 1000 watt HPS in a 4x6 space will yield 1-2 pounds per grow, and a grow takes 5 months from seed to jar.

Another thing you could do is run two grow chambers, one for flower and one for veg. You could, for example, have a 150 watt 2x4 veg space and a 600 watt 4x4 flower space. This arrangement would yield 10-20 ounces every 10 weeks.

Regardless of how you divide up the space, I think what I might do if I were in your situation is just finish the shed space with no interior walls, and use a tent for the grow chamber. This would give you the flexibility to evolve and adapt your grow shed as you develop your preferred growing technique.

Another thing I wanted to point out to you is that the portable A/C unit you are looking at is no good for growing. That is a single hose unit, and a single hose A/C unit removes air from the living space, and sends it out the exhaust hose. That means you are going to be blowing incredibly dank air out of the exhaust during flower, and you are going to have difficulty keeping your RH under control. You need to use either a window A/C unit, or a dual hose unit.

u/nick5342 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I have a Whynter ARC 14s, I use it to cool about 500 sqft and it kicks ass. It is kind of loud when you run it on high but it puts out some cold air.

u/paycheck_day · 1 pointr/containerhomes

Hey there I assume you want something like this: Portable AC

I would recommend against these as they are very inefficient since the ac unit is inside a lot heat goes into the space it is trying to cool. Instead I would get a Mini split AC like this one They are much more efficient as all of the parts that get hot are outside the house.

If you don't want to be mounting anything outside then at the least I would get a portable ac with dual intake/exhaust hoses. like this The reason these are better than the single hose ones is these dual hose ones don't make your home have a negative air pressure which causes it to suck hot air into your house through gaps in doors and windows.

BTW I don't know anything about the individual products I linked they are just examples.

u/Oh_hey_a_TAA · 1 pointr/gpumining

Getting heat out is more important than AC cooling.
You can get portable AC units that don't have to physically go in the window. Ove used a couple of these 14k btu units in a room with no Windows.

u/Iinzers · 1 pointr/legaladvice


Hm thanks man. I'll definitely give it another go this summer with some extra fans and a higher BTU AC if I can get one (16K I hope).

u/ceresia · 1 pointr/HVAC

/u/fbogg might be onto something. Family member of mine uses what I call a spot cooler, basically a cooler for one or a couple smaller rooms that sits on the floor, and the exhaust pipes to the window via a smaller 4-6" flex pipe, that would solve about all your issues right there, a lot of them come with a 90 degree shield where dirt wouldn't be able to go into the pipe and land on the shield.

Unsure about this product but a quick search to explain my idea.

u/Spo_0ky · 1 pointr/Calgary

We got this one a few years back, works like a charm and well worth the money, in 30-35C heat it will actually keep the place nice and cool (~500 square foot room)

Get damp rid. $10 should last about 6 months.

DampRid FG50T Hi-Capacity Moisture Absorber, 4-Pound Tub

u/HopNoxious · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I live in Idaho where we see occasional sub-zero temperatures in the winter. I have both a fridge-turned-kegerator and a chest-freezer-turned-fermentation-chamber in my detached garage.

For my kegerator, which I keep at 42°F, I've installed a 75w incandescent light bulb at the base of the fridge which I leave running constantly any time the average temps are below my target temp. Basically I just screw the bulb in between September and May.

The fermentation chamber is a little more tricky. For this I have the STC-1000 wired for dual stage. The heating stage has a small ceramic space heater plugged in to it which sits inside on the freezer's compressor hump.

Temperature control aside, you might run into some issues with dampness and mold. Supposedly DampRid does a good job of controlling this.

Get a dehumidifier and/or find the water leaks. Even something like this would likely help.

u/Fleuramie · 1 pointr/WTF

Wow we usually wash the sheets about every 4 weeks. You must have some major moisture! You need some Damp-Rid.

u/vorin · 1 pointr/cars

I'm no pro, but if it were mine, I'd grab some DampRid stuff to dry it out, then I'd rent a RugDoctor with upholstery tool to do a hot water extraction.

u/skratchx · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Let me know if you figure out how the hell to put a collar on this thing. I've got the same exact unit. Also, make sure you get something to keep the moisture down in there, you get a ton of condensation when it doesn't go down to freezer temperature. I picked up some Damprid and it works alright.

u/Scribbles2539 · 1 pointr/peacecorps

Can you get the little dehumidifers, that have the little balls in them? Kind of like this We could find them in pretty much any store in our city, it helps.

u/bobroberts1954 · 1 pointr/Cartalk

Sop the water out and check it any time it rains. Get several pails of desicant to start sucking up the moisture. You can find such in the paint section and you can recharge it in your oven if funds are tight. That should hold till the shop is ready, it's probably something simple like the trunk gasket.

u/gx1400 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I had condensation issues until I found a huge leak in my lid. I bought and still use this: Damp rid although it's not an issue anymore, I keep it in there to be safe.

u/Ear_Bud · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Ah excellent question, this is one that I have been struggling with ever since I started playing CS GO. I recently went out and bought one of these bad boys Lasko MyHeat. It costed me 20 bucks at my local Lowes store. I basically turn it on when my hands start getting cold and just play with it turned on. It can get pretty warm if it's sitting close to you, so I usually just turn it off as soon as my hands warm up. It's pretty compact so it just sits on the edge of my desk, granted my desk space is pretty big.

u/zadaz · 1 pointr/firewater

Its really not that hard.

Inkbird itc 308

Heater or any other 200-300watt heating element that wont burn down your shed. Not a fan of brew belt, but might work good, just make sure to stick the probe on the fermenter or make a thermowell.

Now you just need an insulated place to put it all, old fridge is perfect, since in the summer time you can use to to keep the mash cool. But guess you could also insulate some kind of box/closet or just build something out of plywood/styrofoam plates pic

I've not yet built a still, but been brewing beer for a few years, and the ability to control fermentation can lead to a cleaner product, which I would guess makes a mash with less nasties.

u/c00ki3znkr34m · 1 pointr/AskEngineers

You really think a tiny CPU heatsink on a 15w heating element is going to heat my room better than a small boiling water system? That's amazing because boiling water and steam gets SO HOT, right? I thought if I could somehow make a boiling water tank, well insulated, it would do a better job, no?

Any other heating cost-effective ideas here for simplicity / effectiveness of heating a small room? Thank you, you rock. I intuitively feel like a giant ass pipe with steam in it is going to do a much better job still... I have one of those 200w heating elements with a fan on it, it doesn't do a dent to the room temp.

u/aesthetics247 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

What about this as a suggestion?

go with this 200w heater

and a temp outlet thermometer like this
so the heater comes on when your room dips below a certain temperature.. and so it turns off at the right temp as well.

I don't see why office dwellers need 1500 watt space heaters unless the heating system in the office is down completely (and even then when I was issued one I used the 750 watt low setting most of the time).

It may be possible to satisfy some users with a fraction of the power. IN FACT They make space heaters specifically for this use, currently there are two models that I have found:

u/Jessie_James · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Do NOT use your HVAC system as an air filter. It will lower efficiency, cost more to use overall increasing your bills, wear out components, decrease your comfort, and doesn't work when it's off anyway. My HVAC blower motor (only) uses nearly 400w of power. A purpose built air filter I have uses less than 5w and actually cleans the air.

Get a dedicated and purpose built air filter. Amazon has dozens and they work far better and cost less to run. I have two of these and they are fine:

GermGuardian AC4825 3-in-1 Air Purifier with True HEPA Filter, UV-C Sanitizer, Captures Allergens, Smoke, Odors, Mold, Dust, Germs, Pets, Smokers, 22-Inch Germ Guardian Air Purifier

It has 3 fan settings. I keep it on 3 (2 is ok, but 1 is super quiet) as it's a fantastic white noise machine!

The hepa filter is replaceable, and so is the carbon filter. You don't need to use the UV setting. I did until it expired (UV bulbs typically stop producing uv radiation after 12mth from being turned on . I'm not replacing the bulb.

I buy the generic hepa filter now, as I'm cheap lol it's still catching a ton of dust.

The person I love the most is my son (my Mom is a strong competitor for her life sacrifices to keep me safe and happy and for just being my damn Mother, she's amazing and my best friend). Cliche as it sounds, he is my world. Without him, I'd be nothing, and I honestly would not be here. My son is 19 months old, and every day is worth living because of him. Every breath is worth taking because of him. My life was empty before I had him. My reason to live is for him. My son is super fucking cute, and smart as shit for his age too. He learned everything SO early (rolling over at 2 months, sipping from a straw at 4 months, walking by 8 months). He amazes me every day with the things he's learned that I don't realize he's learned yet. He teaches me new things every day. I feel like every holiday, birthday, even normal day has more meaning and more life in it than it used to before I had him. There's this amazing feeling when this kid looks at me, smiles, and runs over to me with his arms out. And he gives me little bitty kisses even when he doesn't want to that make me feel so important to him. You probably didn't want a wall of text but I can't express how amazing having a kid is to me, having MY kid is to me, and how freaking incredible the kid is.

I haven't had this issue with vapor specifically, but the combination of two cats and occasional indoor smoke had us waking up congested and vacuuming/dusting all the time from the overall poor air quality. I picked up a HEPA type air filter which does an amazing job since it picks up anything 3 microns or bigger. It keeps our air clear and smelling fresh even while we vape heavily, so it may help you as well. It also does a great job of reducing dust and pet debris if that's a concern for you.

Does anyone have a reliable figure as to the size of vapor particles? That may help you see if this will work, since I believe most devices made specifically to clear vapor from the air work the same way.

This is the device we have:

u/Foobaca · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

Proper air circulation is best. However you achieve it, depends on the space. The fact of the matter is, you need fresh air to ventilate properly.

My desk/work space is in the basement. Have a couple windows down here, but proper air circulation has to be forced. I use an air purifier found here

Works for vape, as well as making the air down here a bit fresher. That said, Don't blow your vape directly into it. When you first start it up, sure because why not, but don't make it a habit.

I wouldn't put stock in something made specifically for getting rid of vapor personally. If not, I'd invest in an icare/myjet/one of the less loud setups. They're definitely handy

u/virtualmilkshake · 1 pointr/lifehacks


Here is my model. This would be the newer version.

They run about $100 and it’s as easy as plugging it into the wall and turning it on as needed. I’ve used it for cooking smells as well as pet odors (in my dog’s last days, he had terrible ear infections and went to the bathroom everywhere), and I was satisfied with how it worked. It’s also supposed to work well for preventing allergens and germs, so I’ll kick it on during peak allergy times and whenever I’m sick. It was a gift that I never imagined I would use as much as I do, and I’d highly recommend it!

From my parents/family: A new coat, already purchased. Since we're living in my in-laws' attic with 4 cats, a HEPA filter. We could always use Petco, Target, or Amazon giftcards too - litter and food for 4 cats is a big part of our budget.

From fiance: wireless Bluetooth speaker for our attic room. Also, for my birthday (11/29) and Xmas gift, he's paying for our winter photoshoot :)

u/jimbonics · 1 pointr/Austin

Can't recommend this thing enough:

Also, there's tons of products out there for cat allergies, wipes, gels, etc.

u/Sti_mulus · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Had this guy running for about 3 years with the only time it being off was to change the filter. Solid.
GermGuardian AC4845

Given the track record I've had with them, you could get the higher end version since it still fits your budget AC9200

u/apiccirilli · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

Nothing that I came across when I was looking for something similar, unfortunately. I found that same enclosure and it seems insanely expensive for what it is.

What I might suggest is to have the printer in a room that you can close off and ideally has outside ventilation, with a HEPA filter like this:

The studies that are out there right now show a drastic dive in ultra-fine particle concentrations within 10-30 minutes after a print is completed, so as long as the filter runs just a little after the print is finished, the air should be clear. Add in a webcam in the room and something like Octoprint for total remote control.

Hopefully some other printers with HEPA/carbon filtered enclosures will start hitting the market soon.

u/zeyezai · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Do you think this will work?

It has HEPA filter, carbon filter, and charcoal filter. I'm just not quite sure how effective it would be. Don't want to spend $130 and still end up with the upper floor smelling like smoke. My dad closes the washroom door when he smokes so that's a plus. However, the smoke/odor still comes out from the bottom of the door.

u/Beeftin · 1 pointr/homeowners

We've got an air purifier running in the bedroom nearly 24/7. It seems to have been helping and I've just recently started changing the filter every 3 months instead of 6. Can't say whether I've noticed a difference on the days I forget to run it or not.

We haven't noticed any moisture anywhere but if there were any it would be down the basement. We had a foundation leak last spring but cleaned and repaired it and dealt with the external drainage as well so it doesn't reoccur. Other than that I haven't noticed anything on walls or floors, our house is pleasantly dry even during the really rainy weather we've had lately.

Washing the pillows is a good idea, can't hurt!

u/imnotjonsnow · 1 pointr/AskDocs

Sounds like allergies, or your body adjusting to the atmosphere. Keep your windows closed and try an air filter like this one.

Some might say it won't work but I know my brother had some success with one when he had symptoms like it with his kids.

u/kskwerl · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

I recommend this. I have three of them through out my apartment and they work great

u/partard · 1 pointr/engineering

Step 1 - Reduce the mold in the house.
Dry the area, dehumidifier in basement and living area even.

Step 2 - Reudce the mold in the bedroom.
Get a hepa air purifier for the bedroom - run it 24/7.
Make the room air tight if possible. Have an intake fan sucking air in and use a HEPA filter on that.

Step 3 - optional - Get a cpap machine w/ hepa filters.

At this point you should be breathing in clean air w/ no mold spores.

u/Roughbuddha · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

get an air purifier. they're not terribly expensive and they work great.

this is the one i got for my room and i love it. i actually got a 2nd one to put next to my cat's litter box.

u/MRSN4P · 1 pointr/sanfrancisco

I’ve really liked this one.

u/meowcatninja · 1 pointr/SiberianCats

I bought this one before I got my kitten and lucky have not need to use it since bring her home more then 2 months ago, I have had no reaction at all and my reactions to cats is normally pretty bad. I would also recommend doing the allergy test in person with the breeder you have picked and not just a mailed fur test.

u/KashEsq · 1 pointr/SmartThings

I recommend using one of the GermGuardian purifiers that have a physical switch. I personally have their AC4825 model plugged into a SmartThings smart outlet in my bedroom. I keep the purifier always set to Medium and use routines to control when it turns on and off.

u/secretasphalt · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

These charcoal-based deodorizers get rave reviews. I haven't used one of these, but I have used a similar thing filled with cedar shavings to great success.

u/boklos · 1 pointr/gpumining

That's very insightful advice for grow tent.
But what do you think for (without tent) solution? I have 2 small windows in my basement. If I put 2 windows fan like these:
Bionaire Twin Reversible Airflow Window Fan with Remote Control

And a strong large fan at the end of basement ( close to door) like this:
Vornado 660 Large Whole Room Air Circulator Fan

Would it work?

Like I said I really wanna find other solution other then the tent IF POSSIBLE.
Considering that I don't have like 100gpus, but only 9 up to 27.

u/Costco1L · 1 pointr/Cooking

I don't have a vent at all (nor a dishwasher--stupid NYC rental apartments), but I do have a window near the stove. So I bought one of these window fans, which can blow air pretty forcefully out at the flip of a switch. Real lifesaver; I used to smoke up the hallway something fierce if I made steak. Still not as bad as the lady upstairs' fish.

u/enkrypt0r · 1 pointr/lifehacks

I would tend to disagree as far as the window fans are concerned. I have two windows upstairs and each of them has one of these fans in it, and they're incredible.

The windows are on opposite sides of the house, but there is a straight path between them, and I've found that having one intake and one exhaust keep it extremely cool in the summer. I used to be unable to sleep upstairs in the summer because of the heat, but now it's super nice.

u/jonnichols · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Something like this:

They sell some at Walmart for like $20 (that don't have a remote and fancy control screens). It allows you to make one fan blow out and one blow in, which circulates the air a bit.

u/Pays_in_snakes · 1 pointr/AskNYC

Your best bet is one of these

u/sideshow_em · 1 pointr/news

Window fans are your friend. Check amazon. You want one that reverses direction so you can bring the cooler air in at night, and then if you can circulate the air during the day, it will prevent your apartment from turning into an oven.

This is the one I have.

u/pavlov101 · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

If it cools down in your area at night, I would get a window fan. Cant recommend this one enough.

Would I be able to use this to control a non-smart device like a window fan that is operable with a remote control. I just would like to be able to turn it on and off. I know I can use a smart plug to turn the fan off, but a smart plug isn't able to turn it back on. For reference, this is the fan I'm trying to make into a "smart fan" with the flic hub:

u/TheAnusOfSauron · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

If there is a window in the garage, I cannot recommend a window fan enough.

I have this fan and it is great:

Since it is in the window, it is forcing air in, or out.

u/SirWebster · 1 pointr/Pets

Came here to suggest that. Though this model Bionaire Window Fan with Twin 8.5-Inch Reversible Airflow Blades and Remote Control, White

It's wirecutters top pick for a number of reasons. Other than the digital controls it also is more powerful and quieter than cheaper options.

The biggest thing for me is that switching it from pulling air in to pushing air out is just a push of a button instead of having to flip it around.

u/BlueBottleTrees · 1 pointr/trees

You're totally fine.

I used to use an exhaust fan similar to this that fit in a, partially open window. Blowing the smoke straight out when you are smoking is especially good when heating/cooling costs are an issue compared to leaving a window open for longer periods.

u/agent_of_entropy · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Get a window fan. This one is reversible w/ a remote control. Blow out when smoker is smoking, blow in otherwise.

u/KoreaKoreaKoreaKorea · 1 pointr/buildapc

Ok few more comments!

  1. Yes, small AC units are expensive and have high monthly electricity charges. But! A dual fan window unit can do wonders to suck hot air in that room out, and draw more cool air in from the rest of the house. Link: Dual Window Fan.

  2. Can you bring the PC downstairs since this is a source of income? It kinda sucks you have to sit in 85 degree heat while playing, especially if it's making you money.

  3. Caselabs cases are well under $2,000 haha. Their big monster case is like $800 or something. And that could probably fit like 4 pcs if you really wanted it to.

  4. That higher room temp is really killing your cooling temps isn't it? I know there is the thermal wall, but call me ignorant, I'd think you'd hit heat issues first if your ambient is 85f. I could be wrong though.

  5. You are correct about water cooling. A lot of it is for sound purposes. Link: Anantech Conclusion. I just wasn't sure on what other games you are playing.

  6. I'd find out if there are any other sponsors out there. Over at Bit-tech they are flooded with them. BUT you just have to be the right person. A streamer who already has sponsors is a damn good start.

  7. Companies I'd look into for sponsorship that constantly sponsor others

  • Swiftech
  • Corsair
  • EKWB (If you decide to water cool)
  • Bitspower (Another watercooling company)
  • Cooler Master

    Just to name a few off the top of my head. I would try to spruce up your Twitch page a little more first though, to show how you represent sponsors. Or make a dummy version of your twitch page to show them what it could look like with them sponsoring you.

    I've got millions of comments, but don't want to flood all at once.
u/TellTailWag · 1 pointr/NoStupidQuestions

I mean the simplest and most straight forward is better air circulation(unless the air outside is bad). Not sure whether it would be better to push air out or pull it in... Or you could get one that does both.

Bionaire Window Fan

I imagine that you could find a cheaper one, found this one with 30 sec of googling.

u/Justintime4hookah · 1 pointr/hookah

I think I was just gonna do this fan, that way it can really just pull the air out of the room, and then on the other window have a different fan that pulls air into the room.

I was also gonna set up a small lounge type area with some kind of divider probably.

u/grog4590 · 1 pointr/RealEstate

I've been in this situation several times in my current apartment. I went with an air filter like this one. It doesn't completely eliminate smoke but it helps a lot. Also helps with my allergies.

The smoking tenant eventually caused a fire (fire trucks and everything) and ended up leaving shortly after so that problem solved itself, I guess.

u/myersjustinc · 1 pointr/aww

My wife and I have this air purifier and recommend it highly. (I'm the allergic one.) Several of our friends with cat allergies also have come over and remarked how little they reacted to our cat compared to others, and the purifier's been a big part of that. It can be a bit loud, but it has different speed/loudness settings (and can be moved from room to room), so it's usually not a problem.

u/SoMuchMoreEagle · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

According to the chart on the Honeywell Enviracaire HEPA's Amazon page, it cleans up to 350 square feet, so I assume a smaller one wouldn't clean that much. Take a look at the chart at the bottom of the page.

I keep mine mostly in the kitchen to filter out the kitchen smells, but sometimes move it if I need it in another room. I try not to move it too much, however, since the thing is kind of heavy and a bit loud on the high setting. Probably one large one for the main part of the house and then one for each other room would do (I wouldn't worry about the bathroom). It depends on how much you want to spend on them and how much stuff you need to filter out.

u/intensely_human · 1 pointr/worldnews

> is anywhere good anymore? lol

It is weird that people don't talk about it. What specifically have you tried in terms of starting conversations?
As for where is "good" these days, my window sills don't constantly fill with black dust so I suspect here's "good" with regard to coal particulates.

If I had that going on, I'd be looking for some kind of air filter I can have in the house that circulates and cleans the air. Maybe something like this:

Would be an interesting experiment to let that thing run in one of your rooms for a week and then take a look at the filter. I wonder if I would have black dust in it?

u/wobbletons · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Over the summer I was living in a 1 bedroom apartment and I was the only tenant in the building who didn't smoke. My solution was to put a hepa air filter in the room with me and never turn it off. it wasn't perfect but it did help a lot. I was also going to seal off the vents or put some kind of filter in them, but never got to it.

u/drogean3 · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

sounds like your mattress sucks, you might wanna get a memory foam topper and/or memory foam contour pillow to fix your neck

Also, take your allergy medicine before bed and/OR get an air purifier and run that for a day/overnight

ALSO for sinuses, get yourself a nasal rinse kit and do that before bed

u/styledliving · 1 pointr/AskSF

I've been running the IQ Air Health Pro Plus for years (I'm slightly allergic to cats, but I have a cat).

I turned it on Thursday night (11/8) and have been breathing easy since.

I also have a Honeywell 50250 that I give out as a loaner from time to time or for spot purifying in a bedroom.

The first option isn't so affordable, but the second one is great for most folks.

Put an air filter in her room right now.

I had one of those short, fat, round Honeywell HEPA filters. It reduced the dust in my apartment tremendously. I set it to run for about an hour per day while I was gone, and turned it on when I was vacuuming. World of difference.

Edit: links. I had one like this, except programmable. I guess they don't have a programmable version in that form factor anymore. I guess this style is the only option.

u/SOwED · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Do you want it for small spaces, or your entire apartment?

A bit of searching turned up all different sizes, from this to this, which says it works for 390 sq ft.

u/small_fish · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I'll have to double check when I'm home, but I bought a small Honeywell a couple years ago. It helped with my allergies, but it took way too long to filter my tiny bedroom. A year ago I bought this model (I think), and its much better. Also, you need to realize hepa-type is not the same as true hepa. This model filters much larger rooms in more reasonable time. The main tradeoff is its a bit large, but it is also very modestly priced.

Still needs a few more years of use to determine if its really bifl quality.

u/all_those_words · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

I have a honeywell air purifier. It's not cheap, but this thing is awesome.

u/chill02 · 1 pointr/Allergies

I got this one and it gets the job done. You only need to replace the carbon filter every couple of months. It was slightly cheaper when I bought it a month ago, though.

u/DarthContinent · 1 pointr/AskReddit

You could get a HEPA air purifier to keep airborne cat dander under control. Also you might be able to get antihistamine shots through your doctor. If I'm not mistaken, some things seem to more easily trigger an allergic reaction as we age.

A cat insinuated itself into our home years ago, my wife and I both are allergic to cats, but over time it seems like we've gotten accustomed enough that our reaction now is relatively light compared to around the time we first got him. If we go to someone's home though who's got that distinctive tang of cat dander in the air, we both start reacting similarly, so I guess keeping the air clean in conjunction with having our one cat whom our body's antibodies have become mostly accustomed to helps minimize the impact.

u/mastrkief · 1 pointr/EtherMining

So do you not have any intake fans at all? I was looking for a fan strip across your rig like what the Vedha Case has but I don't see any.

Also, it looks like you're powering your risers with the sata adapters that come with the risers. I really recommend changing over to using 4-pin molex or 6-pin PCIe directly from your psu. Those adapters are really cheaply made and they add another point of failure. Additionally, they're always molded connectors which are notorious melting because the plastic is injected around the cables which end up getting too close and then you can electrical arcs across two wires which causes the plastic to melt and the wires eventually fuse together and you get a fire. PCIe risers CAN pull up to 75 watts, but very rarely do they use that much, and SATA connectors are only rated for 54 watts so it's just not a good idea when it's not that much more work to power them directly from 6-pin PCIe or 4-pin molex. You may be fine for weeks or months and then one day you may not be. Also because of the arcing issue I mentioned above, I don't think its even that they run too hot, just that the wires get too close together which causes the arc and the eventual melting of the plastic.

So yeah, I wouldn't use SATA but if you're gonna use it I highly recommend either getting some adapters with crimped connectors like these or just doing SATA directly from your PSU with crimped connectors.

I live in Georgia and so I'm going to be looking at implementing either something like this or probably a grow tent in one of the rooms of my house that rarely gets used. If I had a covered porch I think I'd definitely use this method. Did you run the power lines yourself? How much work was that? 30amp 240v sounds so amazing when I'm dealing with 20 amp 120v right now. Not much room for growth right now.

Either way, great video and really cool for you to give credit to the person who inspired you. I saw you mention that you don't think humidity will be an issue but have you considered getting something like this as a just in case? Seems like a small investment to just hedge against any possible problems.

u/Liberatingvoice · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

You are already ahead of the game with a air purifier and dehumidifier. Be sure to keep the dehumidifier empty. Also, there are lots of house plants that help with cleansing the air.

($6)Wires:For the MOFSET mod


($6)Wire spades:For the MOFSET mod

($8)Assorted M3 Bolts:You need some for a few mods and for the bolts you will inevitably strip on this cheap wonderful machine

($13)Longer assorted M3 Bolts:For a few mods

($9)M4 Bolts:For one of the mods

($9)Metric allen wrench set:Had to order one of these since metric tools aren’t common round these parts

(~$20) PLA of preferred choice- You’ll run out of the sample bit quick so go ahead and order a roll or two to be prepared. You will note some upgrades require ABS so a small spool of that to your order will also help.

($6)M3 Lock nuts:Critically needed for a simple mod

($10)Threaded rod and nuts:Please note that this item seemed difficult to find online. I recommend going to your local hardware store and getting two 5/16” rods of at least 16” in length. They should have an assortment of threaded rod in various lengths available. Also note that the pitch of the threading matches the nuts you buy. Further instructions regarding this can be seen in Azza’s Z-Axis braces below.)

($6)9mm Wrench for the nozzle: Don’t wait for your first clog, go ahead and have this on hand to remove/change the nozzle. Note to only tighten/loosen the nozzle when heated.

Below is the order of printable upgrades I recommend but I suggest you mix in a few other prints along the way because this is a hobby after all and you should be having fun. It helps to have your quality as tuned in as much as possible for some of these so be patient and keep trying if you need to.


Spool holder- temporary : Until you can mount your spool on top of the enclosure or any other personal preference.

Belt tensioner- print x2


Shielded stop button

Cable relocator : It’s a pain, but if you spend the time to do this and turn your extruder motor 90 degrees then you can get the full Z height without ruining your cables. It does involve opening all the cables to the PSU and feeding a few extra inches back through the cable chains.

Cable shroud : Looks nice if you do the cable relocator.

The following need to be printed in ABS:

M3 Bed Nut retainer: 10/10 upgrade. I know they look worse than the nice metal stock ones, but these help keep your bed level longer.


Glass bed Holder

Now that the first major round of printed upgrades is done it’s time to shift to a few more supplies to pick up to really fine tune the machine.


($5)Radial fan: For CiiCooler

($5)Glue sticksThis and a glass bed is magic

($25)Borosilicate glass 8” x 8”

($26)Y-Carriage plate upgrade: This has been a nice upgrade as I now only need to relevel the bed every couple weeks instead of every print. Check out this guide for a ‘how to’ as well as a free upgrade by shifting your Y pulley over.

($15)rechargeable dehumidifier: For keeping in the bin with your opened filaments

($9)Extruder gears: Might be able to hold off on these, but will need eventually. If for some reason you have a Maker Select with metal X-axis blocks (V1 and V2, but not V2.1) then this is a must. You can follow this guide for a how to.

($28)Metal extruder plate and lever: Not needed, but nice.

($14)Noctua 40mm fan: Not needed, but makes the printer a lot quitter. A LOT quieter.

($50)MicroSwiss All Metal Hot End: The destruction of my PTFE tube by this point pushed me to doing this upgrade. If needed you can follow this guide for replacement. Remember to tighten/loosen when the nozzle its hot.

($6)Ceramic cotton: Tore off the stock one when replacing for the all metal hot end by accident. At least its thicker than stock

Now that the printer is in its final form, its time for the enclosure which is a stacked Ikea Lack hack.


Spool holder

Pi Case

120mm fan cover

Fan grill

120mm fan PSU modification: I edited this to fit upside down since my PSU is mounted on the underside. This was nice since I blew the 40mm fan anyways so it made everything a lot quieter than before.

IKEA Lack filament guide

Webcam holder: This is one I designed specifically for the webcam I happen to have lying around. The camera mount piece can be changed out no problem though for what ever webcam you have or buy. The SketchUp file is included on Thingiverse for such purpose.


($20)2x Ikea Lack: Luckily there is one right down the street from me. I am located in North America though, so we do not have the STUVA, if you live literally anywhere else you may check in to this as an alternative.

($80)Plexi glass for enclosure: Could be cheaper alternatives, but it looks cool

($9)Foam pads for feet

($42)Raspberry Pi3: For OctoPrint. I also suggest using a different USB cable than the stock one provided by Monoprice or you will have issues.

($9)2x 120mm fans: Used for the power supply cooling and enclosure

($6)Rocker Switches so that the enclosure fan can be on for PLA, but off for ABS

($15)Dimmable LED lights

($10)8mm LED light connectors

$250 printer + $452 upgrades/parts + ~$80 PLA/ABS to date

u/SniperGX1 · 1 pointr/Firearms

Dessicants saturate with water and become useless within a couple days so unless you plan on digging them out and drying them in the oven once or twice a week it's a waste of time. They are really only good if you buy them new, or dry out the crystals from ones you collect and then use them in small airtight containers like ammo boxes or vaccuum sealed packs.

Buy a couple of these and recharge them as needed.

Don't need to use an oven to dry out, just plug in and wait.

It is obviously a HUGE risk, but the alternative is getting rid of it and having nothing. So, really what do you have to lose? Be creative, and do your best to weather-proof and critter proof it.

I have found that some materials require higher temps to print properly. I normally print with the AB PLA at around 210-215c, and I have not experienced any issues with that filament. Sometimes you need to print at a higher temp than what the filament says on the package with the newer extruder.

Humidity is really high where I am in Sullivan County. I have been using a mini dehumidifier in my cabinet and it seems good so far. Every couple weeks I plug it into the wall and it heats up to evaporate the water.

u/aelric22 · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

Definitely buy plastic in bulk if you're planning on using that to save money and profit long term. If you have one near you, Microcenter has PLA, PETG, ABS, and many other assorted filaments in many different colors for sale starting at $14 per (2kg spools I think, been a long time since I've checked the mass amount on my spools period). Some people have had issues with the Inland filament, but I've never had a single issue. My favorite is their off color "cream" white PLA. These are usually distinguishable by a Green dot sticker on the box. Produces a really nice surface finish, and even better after sanding.

However, I also suggest you invest in a storage solution. What I've gone with:

- For storage if you have a Container Store near you (or just get something similar):

- For filament dehumidifying:

I have filament from when I first purchased my 3D printer in 2016, and after continuously storing it in this solution since, it still prints effectively and cleanly with minimal to zero water vapor related issues.

I'm having a similar issue of my 7 cu ft chest freeze being about 85% humid. I'm looking into buying a passive dehumidifier that, according to the reviews, should work great in a small space.

u/fiola256 · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

Highly recommend getting one of these and stick it into your filament box.

it works really well and when it gets too moist (you can see the color change) you just pop it onto a wallsocket for 24hr and it's goo to go again.

beats collecting the little packets of desiccant and drying them in the oven :)

You might even try something like this small dehumidifier. It's what I use in my "dry box". The box sits on top of my enclosure, and has a small hole leading down into the printer. I keep 2-3 rolls of filament in it at once, and that dehumidifier.

Once the crystals turn blue, I plug the dehumidifier into the wall for a couple of hours to dry it out, and right back in the box it goes.

This system has worked great for me for the past year, and was less than $30 total.

I am a fan of the Eva-dry E-333 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier. Basically, it is silica gel in a unit that has a heater. When the gel turns green which indicates it done absorbing water, you plug it in. The heater evaporates the moisture and then you can reuse it. You only buy this unit which is $15 one time.

I put one of these in a plastic covered crate I purchased at a big box office supply shop with about 6-8 reels of filament. If you want to drive the humidity lower you can just add another unit.

u/AlexTakeTwo · 1 pointr/homeowners

Another vote for Vornado heaters. Specifically, I've used this one in a couple of different apartments with inadequate heating. It's quiet, puts out decent heat, low profile makes it harder to be knocked over on accident, and it has an automatic cutoff switch if it accidentally does get knocked over.

My parents use a portable oil filled radiator-style electric heater in parts of their house, instead of baseboard heaters. I'm not sure it's actually as cost effective as they think, but I've visited during the winter and the heaters do a nice job of keeping the rooms warm. Theirs look like this one although I'm not sure it's the same model. Pretty sure they got theirs at Fred Meyer during previous winter sales.

u/jwd2213 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Plants essentially stop growing at 7 celcius. Gotta get it up above 10 if you wamt results. Your light should help with temps and are fairly cheap

u/winnythep00p · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

We have similar room as well. I do leave my door open to the house so its little bit heated or at least not freezing there. I do have a radiator heater similar to this which helps to at least provide some heat. I did not want to add any heating elements that blows hot air, since its very temporary and you get the heat when its working only.

You should calculate how much heat you will use from your house - assuming its gas furnace. Gas is cheaper than electric so you need to decide which one you want to use. This year I am planning on covering the windows with plastic, similar to this. And slowly insulate the room to better improve its performance.

I feel you its so hot in the summer, and so cold in the winter. It sucks to lose a room for 2 seasons. Let me know if you can figure it out another solution.


u/gypsywhisperer · 1 pointr/succulents

It's one like this. I've left it on for a few days while I was home without issue, but it's probably not smart.

u/externality · 1 pointr/GoodValue

You might consider two oil-filled heaters, one on each side of your apartment.

They are relatively silent, and unobtrusive.

The heating elements are enclosed, so they don't get dangerously hot - I can move mine around bare-handed if necessary.

Not sure what your electrical situation is, but using outlets on different sides of the room could prevent a circuit breaker from tripping.

I have a DeLonghi - an earlier generation of this, probably:

u/henryorhenri · 1 pointr/povertyfinance

When my furnace went out, I went and bought a bunch of electric "oil filled radiator" heaters. Paid about $50 each at Lowe's, on sale. Put one in the bedroom, one in the kitchen, one in the bath room and two in the large living room. They kept the house warm enough and we're surprisingly inexpensive to use. Safe and easy.

When I did get a new furnace (through my local energy assistance provider, for free!) I actually found the little heaters were cheaper than my new forced air electric furnace.


Good luck, OP!

u/flip69 · 1 pointr/Chameleons

I think that the oil radiators are the most efficient and safest for heating up a room.

u/frankichiro · 1 pointr/ProjectCairo

I'll admit that I am a very optimistic person, because I believe that it is ultimately the only attitude that makes any sense in life, so don't be too hard on me if you think I'm very naive. I want to think that all of these problems are why we care in the first place, and that it's what we're here to fix. It seems to be a bit overwhelming though, but if we're serious about this we should really focus on one thing at the time, and understand that we can't save the whole town at once.

We should definitely not give up before we've even tried.

One way to look at it is this: If this whole project fails in a year, but we've managed to teach one little kid in Cairo how to read, I'd say it's been worth it.

There is no doubt that we have to step out of out comfort zone for this, but we have to remember why we do that. We shouldn't drown ourselves in the process, of course, but if nobody does anything, nothing will ever be done. This is what change and revolution is all about.

If we could just fix that darn house, we'll have accomplished much more than anyone actually dared to dream of, as a community. We need it. It will make a difference, even if it means more to us than to Cairo.

For starters, there are fairly cheap electrical heaters we could invest in.

Our plan is still to raise money and buy stuff, and I believe we can accomplish this by keep finding solutions to things and remembering why it's important that we do so. There might be many places like Cairo, but if we want to see change, we might as well start here and see it through.

EDIT: I should perhaps clarify that this isn't directed at you, falseramona, you are doing an excellent job with keeping us updated about what you find over there. I just felt it was important to balance all this misery with some hope. When the going gets tough, the tough gets going, right? :)

Yeah. I can't find my exact one because it's very old, but this one is the modern version.

Put that thing on full power and I promise you it'll feel like a hot summer day in your bedroom.

EDIT: BTW... bear in mind that they do take a little while to start heating the room up when you first turn them on. I think that's why some people think they're not that great. But trust me, once they get going they warm the place up great.

u/arc333jd · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

A box might work. I personally don't have any reaction to the fumes, but I prefer to keep them under wraps anyway. I'm currently using an enclosure with a fan exhausting air through an active carbon filter. (Like this, but typically just a small cutout: When using this setup I don't smell the ABS at all. The only time I smell it is if I open the enclosure right away after the print finishes or during the print. If I give it 5-10 minutes after the print to evacuate the fumes through the filter I never smell a thing.

u/user865865 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Doesn't make a big difference, but a lot of people think you have to pull through it. Buy a quality filter and good duct tape to seal up any seams and you'll be fine.

But by pushing air through, you can't use the prefilter wrapped around the outside of the carbon filter (well, you could, but it would be useless). I got this prefilter and put it over the inlet to the tent.

u/FightOrFlight · 1 pointr/CysticFibrosis

This filter has been great for my 8 month old daughter with CF. Here are a few tips though:

  • They say the filter lasts a year, they don't. If you're using acetylcysteine or changing diapers near it, it'll last 3 months. When they go bad you'll notice a funky wet dog smell coming from it. That's $10 every 3 months.

  • Buy bulk carbon pre-filters and swap them out every month. You'll see a noticeable difference in air quality by doing this step. I buy these, cut them to twice the size of the filter, fold them in half, and attach them to the filter. Way better bang for buck thus way.

  • Consumer Reports noted that the only time these clean the air is when they're set to high and on 24/7. According to CR, this set doesn't have a lot of horsepower. The most it can clean is a small room.

  • You should also count on spending more on your electricity bill. On this unit I spend an extra $10ish per month since it's on 24/7.

    All in, you're looking at $180-200 a year to run an air filter this size. More if you get a larger unit with a more expensive filter.
u/wyezwunn · 1 pointr/Allergies

> HEPA filter

Sorry for implying that AirOasis purifiers have HEPA filters when all they have is AHPCO cells that have to be replaced and steel filters that only have to be rinsed off with water. I've never used HEPA filters because no one in my household is bothered by particles large enough to be captured by a HEPA filter.

> off-gassing

I can no longer smell the VOCs that bother me so I'm not a good one to ask about off-gassing. All I can tell you is: my VOC symptoms were gone within a few hours of installing the purifiers, but I don't know if that's because it took that long to purify the whole room or because the purifier finished off-gassing or because there's no HEPA filter in it.

> charcoal bags

Increase the surface area of the carbon/charcoal that comes into contact with the air as much as possible if you want to reduce VOCs. Putting carbon/charcoal in bags reduces the surface area too much. You can put activated charcoal powder or *crushed charcoal briquettes (starter-fluid-free) in a bowl. Put the bowl inside a bowl and don't fill it to the top so you won't have so much mess if the bowl gets knocked over. You can also put a piece of carbon filter over the air inlet or outlet of a purifier or fan.

u/portnux · 1 pointr/DIY

We have three cats and one rather large litter box that I clean daily so don’t notice any odor. But it was a problem I’d invest in a good air cleaner with an activated charcoal filter. But you could probably make something using a box, a small fan, and a sheet of bulk activated charcoal material.

u/mercurysinking · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

I have my printer in my room. To avoid the smell I zip tied one of these on my fan and it really cuts down on the smell from ABS.

u/Sheogorath123 · 1 pointr/buildapc


I'm not fond of that case either. Not just because it's crazy expensive, but because it's unfiltered. For running something 24/7, I'd get something filtered so the stuff inside doesn't get gunked up so fast. Maybe a fractal design case.

If you're dead set on that case, just put some of this between the front mesh and the fans. Cut it so it covers the whole vent.

Also, I can't iterate this enough: Unless a TV will actually be your primary monitor, that monitor is WAY too cheap for a GTX 1070. It's like buying a racecar then slapping eco tires on it.

As a rule of thumb, I like to spend as much on the monitor as the GPU. Personally, I'd get a Samsung CHG70 if I had a 1070-class GPU.

But as a bare minimum, I'd get this:

u/techmattr · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

I have a WES51 I could let go for $75 + shipping. Includes ETH, ETS and ETA tip.

Grip is a bit worn. The stand will get a bit hot and heat up the grip which causes it to wear when you're solder for a couple hours at a time.

I'll include a Hakko 599B tip cleaner.

Don't bother with a fume extractor. They are all shitty. Just grab these carbon sheets and tape it to a desk fan. Works 1000x better than any fume extractor under $200.

u/dick_in_CORN · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

That's what I would probably use. I'd probably get HVAC filters, and modify it with something like this. That way you have a frame and it costs around 21 bucks for everything. 10 dollar box fan, 9 dollar carbon filter cut to fit, and 2 super cheap HVAC filters that are the same size as your fan.

If you have a spray booth with a fan, than you should be good as long as you run the exaust through an air filter system.

As long as the spray booth has sufficient suction to pull the air through the filter, than you should be good.

I've been using this humidifier for 3 years and it is heavenly. I much prefer warm mist to cool mist even though the warm mist humidifiers do make more noise; I've found that cool mist humidifiers actually make me more prone to coughs/colds, but if you're only worried about skincare, then I'd guess they're very similar.

u/TestingOnCorn · 1 pointr/microgrowery

u/Twenty22Two · 1 pointr/HVAC

Any suggestions? This is what I had:

I sent it back because it left a big pool of water under the reservoir so once you pick it up it spills everywhere. To me that seems like a design issue and I did not want to deal with that throughout the life of the humidifier.

u/wrngway · 1 pointr/VacuumCleaners

Based on the specs the Active Airclean captures 99.95% of particles down to 0.5 microns. The HEPA is 99.99% down to 0.3 microns. You should be able to find some charts to see what types of particles would fall in this range. Pet dander should be caught fine on either of these. 0.5 microns is the lower end range for bacteria.

I have a Miele S5 with the HEPA. With 2 dogs and a cat though, I'll be trying the Active Airclean filter as I get some pet smells when I run it.

I've also seen it suggested to put one of these in the dust collection bin. While it'll help with odors and let you use a HEPA as well, it also takes up some space in there.

Sometimes that funk just doesn't go away. I've had it happen with other clothing, but not a gi yet.

If the vinegar didn't work to get the smell out I would just continue to wash it regularly (after every roll). Also try drying it in a dryer on the very lowest heat setting, or "air dry" if you have that option, and throw in a few dryer sheets to try and absorb the smell.

You could also try charcoal. I bought these on Amazon and keep them in my gym bag.

u/puddle_stomper · 1 pointr/BarefootRunning

I've read that Oxyclean is good for getting rid of stink. This is my routine for keeping them smelling clean:

  1. You probably already know this one, but wash your feet before wearing them.
  2. If you can afford them, pick up a few pairs of Injinji wool socks. They'll help keep your feet more dry than not wearing socks, and the wool is naturally antimicrobial. Their Run 2.0 socks are super thin and slick, so you might try those if you don't have much room. They aren't wool, but they're better than no socks at all.
  3. Don't let your feet get too sweaty in them (socks help here); I air mine out as quickly as possible as soon as I start to notice moisture building up. Sometimes, it's just a matter of slipping my heel out for a bit if I'm wearing them at my desk at work. If using for running, put them in front of a high power small fan to air out faster when you get home.
  4. Insert charcoal/bamboo deodorizer bags inside after they're dry. This is what I have, but I'm pretty sure I just bought that specific set because it was cheap at the time. I keep them in my shoes whenever I'm not wearing them.
  5. Once a month or so (or more if needed), soak VFF in Oxyclean/water mixture for a couple hours, then let air dry. If it's summer, I let them dry in the sun, but in the winter I just use a small fan.
  6. Set deodorizer bags and VFFs in back windshield of my car during a sunny week for a couple of days about once a month as well. The UV light is supposed to help kill bacteria and will "reset" the deodorizer bags.

u/ticklemyelm0 · 1 pointr/SpaceBuckets

Probably not because then you will have stale old air sitting in your bucket when plants need fresh air in order to grow properly. I'd 100% recommend getting a cheap pc fan for intake man, at the very LEAST drill some holes lower down for passive air intake(and I don't mean small homes, 1/2" at the bare minimum, and a lot of them). What do you mean carbon filter? The fan I was talking about is this one:

It is very sturdy, simple, and moves a shit ton of air. There is no real use imo with adding a carbon filter on the intake unless you have really gross smelling air or something outside of your bucket. You COULD add a carbon filter to the exhaust if you wanted to help keep the weed smell down later in your grow, but that isn't until late veg/all of flower.

This is the exhaust fan I got, crazy powerful.

u/i_dont_translate · 1 pointr/SpaceBuckets

I found this. If I were to get two of them and divide the space into two separate chambers for flowering and vegging, would that be enough? Or would I also need an intake fan as well?

u/Inquisitive_Cretin · 1 pointr/DIY

8.7 sounds low, either way though 225 cfm sounds easy to get from a cheap fan and 225 is way higher than what the engine will put out. I think its a good plan. Maybe use a 120v square cooling fan. Not saying this is the one but:

This is what I'm talking about. I don't think heat would be too big an issue if the the cfm was high enough to pull extra cooling air. Maybe put the fan as far from the engine as possible and maybe use like stove pipe?

People won't be sleeping near this right?

I am using this fan with a 4" carbon filter and it works great.

u/SantiagoSentMe · 1 pointr/SpaceBuckets

I put my intakes towards the top of the bucket and my exhaust fan in the lid. It mostly depends on what type of pot you're going to use. If it fills your bucket then you'll want to have them high enough so the air isn't blocked. If there's some space around it then you could go lower but be sure to leave a little space at the bottom if you plan to make a drainage tray. I planned my bucket with a 3 gallon smart pot in mind so i kept the intakes high enough to not be obstructed. There's a link to my first bucket in my profile as Ekropf was kind enough to put it on I haven't taken pics of my 2nd bucket yet, but it's similar. That site has lots of great pictures and info. If you do end up using an intake fan you'll want to mount it somewhere that doesn't blow directly on the top of your pot as it will dry out the top layer of the medium too quickly so the wet/dry cycle will be tough to maintain.
I can't stress the passive intake enough. I was very much of the opinion that I was going to have 1 intake and 1 exhaust fan but some very good people here pointed me in the right direction before I started building. You can see the thread and comments in my profile. (Hoping I can pass along the knowledge I gained. The people on this subreddit are awesome and helped me immensely.) I was very pleasantly surprised by the pvc elbows. They're only about 80 cents each and since I had already ordered 2 fans I made a 2nd bucket. Also, if odor control is important to you then you'll want to maintain negative pressure in your bucket. Intake fans can lead to positive pressure and air leak whereas passive will guarantee negative pressure. Just Google it if you haven't read about it yet.

Regarding the fans; here's what I bought. They're plug and play for a regular outlet.
I also got lamp dimmers for my fans and they work great. Here's a link but I found them for 7 bucks at a local home store similar to Lowes or Home Depot.

I'd recommend getting a temp/humidity weather monitor and try your bucket with 1 fan first. You can always install a 2nd if needed. It's important to check temp/humidity with your pot and medium in the bucket...I found its much different than an empty bucket. Something like this...

I found cheap bricks of coco at Petsmart. It's also used for bedding/substrate in reptile terrariums. Roughly 6 bucks for 8 quarts...add about 30% perlite or vermiculite and you can easily fill a 2-3 gallon pot.

Here's what I did for led side lighting and power supply. It's not an absolute must, but definitely helpful from what I've read.

If you have any more questions, feel free to pm me. I highly suggest looking through'll give you lots of different ideas and you'll be able to see how they work before building your bucket.

Hope this helps!

u/DaveMApplegate · 1 pointr/Sauna

I've tried re-arraigning my stones a few times to no success. It does effect the efficiency of heating -- but not the heat difference.

I've been thinking a bit of the fireplace fan and worry that it is going to be oddly placed and directed (might not accomplish it's goal), slightly dangerous since I'd have to take off the rock guard or might not even get hot enough to really get spinning

I've been researching more and thinking of getting something like this:

Maybe even something that is a little slower spinning but dead silent. It would be SUPER easy to wire a few of these into the sauna to get the air moving around a bit more. I feel like computer fans might do a good job since computer temps regularly get in the hundreds and I can locate the power supply outside of my sauna. Something like this:

I'll keep you updated.

u/Wheresbaldo09 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Sure thing here's the link this one isn't quiet but isn't noisy, don't notice it unless I try hard enough.

u/throwasdfaway123 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I just finished my first pc grow, 19 grams after a week dry when it went into the jar, so with some LST you can easily make that 3.5 grams a month mark.

Yeah my case had a window too, I scuffed it a bit and painted the inside with black spray paint, and used that same reflective material. I painted the reflective material black as well before gluing it on. Paint didn't do that great on either piece but it turned out acceptable once they were glued together.

Fans, I used these and I mounted a power strip on the inside of the case, it runs those 2 fans 24/7 and a timer for my lights, which are CFLs plugged into a 2nd strip. They are really noisy, though no splicing needed and they move a lot of air. I'm in a humid environment and didn't want mold. I did use a less powerful PC fan spliced into a cell charger hung inside the case to blow on the plant when it was small to help strengthen the stem.

If that case is steel and not aluminum, you may look at using mylar instead of the windshield bubble wrap and mount stuff using magnets. I used the windshield stuff it's too thick, so I split it using a razor blade so it'd be thin enough that I could put magnets on the back of my power strips and stick them to the back panel. If it's aluminum you'll have to mount with zip ties of screws or something.

You're gonna want a light trap. I used this style I got some PVC/vinyl "outside corner molding" or "corner guard" from the local hardware store for mine and left it white instead of black. This was just on the front intake, the rear exhaust had a carbon filter taped over it.

For exhaust filter I used these the smoker ones have actual chunks of carbon in them, there's also lots of cheaper diy versions out there, but I found taping one of these over the exhaust to be easier. I used some regular black AC foam over the front behind the front face plate but in front of the intake fan.

Can't help with that light, may order one myself, just make sure when looking at LEDs that it's not too wide for the case. Also see where the plug comes into the back, you may loose a good bit of vertical room due to cord and mounting. I used CFLs that were plugged into a normal power strip that was stuck to the back wall with magnets and it worked well. I could raise and lower the lights easily, but could only get 3 23watt (100 equiv) bulbs in that one strip.

You'll also want a roll of reflective foil/hvac/duct tape to seal all the corners and whatnot.

That soil has a PH of 6.6 so it'll probably be great.

Do you think this fan would be enough if I am going to only have about a foot and a half of tubing? My printer is right next to the window. If not that one is not much more expensive and does have more than double the CFM rating.

u/entrpn · 1 pointr/microgrowery

If you are going full stealth, I think it will be hard to find a fan that doesn't make any noise (or barely makes noise).

I own 2 of those fans I sent you the link to and put them inside this tent and it keeps things cool enough. In the winter time I only need to run one of those in the exhaust fan.

Here is another option. These fans are AC powered so you just need to plug them into an outlet. They have lower decibel noise but also bring only half the CFM.

u/bskzoo · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Another tip I'll add is don't use a muffin fan for circulating air. Something like this:

It generates a surprising amount of heat. I once unplugged my temp controller but left the fan going and it got the inside of my chest cooler up past 95F. Heck of a diacetyl rest.

I used one in my keezer for a while as well and my compresser kicked on and off far more than it does now with something like /u/Wadofmeat69 suggests.

u/basura_trash · 1 pointr/airbrush

I went ahead an replaced the fan after all. I bought a fan and a power adapter for it. I now have a working booth.

u/Beenjamin · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I bought this fan and mounted to the back of the enclosure I built. Moves a lot of air and recirculates well.


u/77Yamachop · 1 pointr/Homebrewing
u/magicmushie · 1 pointr/SpaceBuckets

np. I did accidentally link one that uses USB, though they do sell an adapter. AC infinity does have fans that plug right into a wall, like this one that I thought I linked. Unfortunately, the ones that plug straight into a wall outlet don't have those variable speed switches.

Shameless plug: I posted my own space bucket two days ago, which uses AC infinity's USB 80mm fan. since you're not planning to use a filter, I would recommend their larger USB fans with their AC adapter: bigger fans means more CFM, and then you can tune the fan setting to be as quiet as possible while maintaining safe temperatures inside your container. I personally keep my own fan at its quietest setting, and I obviously wouldn't have been able to do this without the speed switch.

u/MiniXP · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I've been using one of these mini dehumidifiers, works pretty well:

It absorbs moisture, then once it is full, you plug it into an outlet and it heats up and drys out the moisture so that you can use it again. There are different sizes for various prices, but the above is what I have. I don't think I'd go to a smaller one, bc it does get filled up throughout 1 fermentation.

u/nacho2100 · 1 pointr/Charcuterie

Thanks for the critique. Here is a link to the dehumidifier

Essentially its a dehumidifier that sucks moisture out of the air. When it is plugged in, the heating coil causes the beads to release their moisture, essentially recharging the ability to dehumidify. I was hoping that by turning the circuit on with an inkbird or other hygrostat, I could set the dehumidifier to release moisture should my chamber get too dry.

u/mjfan96 · 1 pointr/prusa3d

Something like this?



u/atworkaccount789 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I have a similar set up with room for a carboy. When I started I had issues with leaks as well. Several inexpensive purchases have made all the difference:

  1. Use Metal Screw Ties on each end of all hoses:

  2. Use Keg lube:

  3. Oftentimes the piece that connects the hose to the keg is actually 2 separate pieces. Make sure to use a wrench to tighten this as tightly as possible.

  4. Replace the O-ring between the CO2 bottle and valve semi regularly.

    Hopefully those four things should help cut down on any leaks. You can do all of them for under $20. You can also buy a cheap dehumidifier on Amazon to help with condensation issues:

    Last, I found who fills the CO2 bottle can make a huge difference. The bottle actually needs to be chilled to get a full charge of CO2. My local fish store is significantly cheaper to fill, but they never give a good fill; I have to pay extra at the Homebrew store to have them do it right.
u/narddawg314 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I have one of those but found that I'm happier with the eva-dry

u/lanclos · 1 pointr/BigIsland

Any enclosed cabinets are going to retain moisture. Most houses should be built with this in mind. If you absolutely have to have something closed in then yes, you'll want something in there (full dehumidifier, heating rod, rechargeable dessicant) to absorb excess moisture. These work great for me:

u/newyearyay · 1 pointr/ar15

Kind of related but Ive been using an Eva-dry in a large metal tool box I keep in my trunk (I also wipe down my tools after I'm finished with them) and have been doing this for about a month with no apparent rusting, are you saying its not worth messing with desiccant because it will absorb from the outside atmosphere and not just in the car or why? I certainly would not want to ruin my tools but how big of a threat is it? I just assumed that 'dehumidifier' would work well enough as long as I keep it 'charged'

u/PM_ME_BIG_RADIALS · 1 pointr/vancouver

It definitely works. I have this from Amazon, which is just a fancy plastic box containing the same beads inside the paper packets you get in shoes etc. It's re-usable though -- you plug it in to the wall once the beads are maxed out and it heats up and dries them out again.

I have a shitty leaky truck that fogs up terribly on the inside, but with this inside overnight it's noticably better (not completely fixed, but it's a really shitty truck).

u/hovissimo · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

I really, really recommend one of the reusable moisture absorbers. ala

u/aerizel · 1 pointr/DIY

Awesome setup and gorgeous woodwork!

Wanted to share some advice on the Keg Freezer setup as I have built a couple of these now.

Make sure that you have a temp controller that handles a 5 min cycle delay. Most digital temp controllers have this capability but the first one I bought did not and I had to replace the freezer after about a year due to compressor failure.

Also you mentioned moisture issues, you can take a look at these devices available on Amazon. I use these in mine and it helps quite a bit and all you have to do it plug them periodically in to re-charge.


u/bmorin · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

That quickly and completely? Doesn't seem likely but then I am still fairly new at all this. I just have one of these in there and it's only slightly closer to needing to be plugged in than it was before I started the cold crash.

Thinking back, it was probably closer to two gallons of headspace in the fermenter, but that shouldn't significantly affect your calculations from earlier, would it?

u/Llewellyn420 · 1 pointr/vaporents

Yes you can, try to be careful. Get a smokebuddy also it will help you in the future!!!

u/scoopinresponse · 1 pointr/trees

I don't know much about law-enforcement's feelings toward trees over there, but I do know that here they'd need to know who's door to direct the police to, (If you're just outside and you smell weed and complain to the police they'll probably tell you there's nothing they can do unless you can tell where it's coming from) and if they did choose to show up, they'd have to smell it themselves and suspect it's coming from your specific domicile, and then they'd have to also suspect that you have enough that you could be selling it, because they'll need a warrant if they want to search your residence.

The next thing is to get yourself something like a Smoke Buddy to exhale through to mitigate the smell, and be mindful of how you smoke. Bowls you can kill off in one hit produce a lot less smell than say a joint.

u/BLO0DBATHnBEOND · 1 pointr/trees

I used to use that old jank shit but it's nothing compared to a smoke buddy. These things have carbon filters in them that catch the smoke and nothing comes out the other side. If you have the money and need to cover your dank stank i would invest.

u/zanyzanne · 1 pointr/AmItheAsshole

This is a grow room issue, I guarantee it. BUT, if it turns out to be actual smoke... buy your neighbors this.


u/mosotaiyo · 1 pointr/Advice

As per my other comment:
Here is the product I recommend and use, I've gone through half a dozen. (the filter eventually gets saturated and they don't filter 100%... but thats after like blowing a quarter pound or half pound worth of product through it. (months and months of use))

This would help even with a joint, to reduce the smoke your exhaling from your drags, although the burning jay will still be producing smoke that will linger to your neighbors.

This product works best when combined with a pipe, bubbler, bong or similar apparatus that you can load up with single tokes. Take a huge toke, blow it out through the smoke buddy. virtually no smell/smoke leftover. Most smoke shops will carry them or a variation of them... People use these smoking indoors in apartment complexes unbeknownst to their neighbors in the same complex.

Your neighbor would probably appreciate it, and you can keep on smoking. He's happy, you're baked.

Edit: To answer your last question OP: You're not wrong to smoke on your own property, but after your neighbor brought up his concerns, you'd be kind of a dick to just give him the middle finger and ignore him. There are better methods out there to find some sort of middle ground with your neighbor aside from "blowing smoke in the other direction" :P

u/thottumharvey · 1 pointr/tifu

I know you have tons of comments to look at but I hope you see this OP!

There is a product called a Smoke Buddy you get get at Walmart or order it on Amazon. While it doesn’t completely get rid or the smell of you are smoking a joint or smoking out of a pipe, but if you use a bong and make sure not to release any of the smoke it works very well. My roommate would use one and I could never really tell. Here’s a link to the one on Amazon!

u/heelflipper · 1 pointr/poshmark

This is an extreme solution, you probably wouldn't do for a one off item but if you're trying to refurb stuff that smells like smoke to sell it can pay for itself.

Purchase a shock ozone treatment device like this: Ozone Generator

Enclose in large storage container. Hole in side for power. Seal with plumbers putty. Seal lid with weather stripping gasket. Run for about 30 minutes.

Works wonders pulling smells out of about anything.

Would suggest further research before you go this route but it's a pretty effective solution.

u/OriginalBigTex · 1 pointr/PipeTobacco

It has performed well, but is maintenance intensive. I have replaced the plates about once a year due to the humidity here on the Texas Gulf Coast. Other than that, it is great! It works well for removing the smell of smoke in my truck as well, just run the truck with the AC on recirculate for 20 minutes and it smells like new. If you run it too long in a small room or vehicle, it builds up a film on your windows and other surfaces.

I was looking for this comment. The tar etc will be there to stay, unless you pull your hvac ducts apart and manually scrub them down.

Honestly dawn dishsoap works amazing with a brillo sponge thing. I smoke, not in my house, but in my 3 season patio. Every summer it takes me about 6 hours of scrubbing to get all the tar and crap off all the windows, walls, ceiling, fans, etc. I should mention I have 24 windows floor to ceiling on my patio, one reason it takes so damn long.

On the topic of ozone generators in general. I had a small unit that was an "air purifier" and ozone generator I got off ebay. The "air purifier" I'm pretty sure was just a fan that literally did nothing. I have cats and their litter boxes are in my basement, so I would have the ozone generator go off at 4am for 20-30 min a few times a week just to cut down litter smell. I ended up buying this after it crapped out on me just want to say, HOLY CRAP this thing is powerful. It's almost too powerful to use for me. It will wake me up in the middle of the night 3 floors up with the smell of ozone. Maybe close up all the windows in your house, take your air filter out of your hvac, shove the o3 generator in there, turn the hvac fan on continuous, and leave for a day.

  • When/how often should I recirculate the glycol, and how long should I do it each time?

  • Is there an ideal temperature difference between the glycol reservoir and the fermenter temperatures? Or in other words, should I change up the glycol temperatures depending on whether I'm fermenting or cold crashing?

If your hands are slanted up, blood is going to have a harder time getting to your fingers. If you get a setup where your wrists are slanted slightly down, you will see a difference.

If you're like me and don't want to go through the hassle of redoing your ergonomic setup, just buy 2 small space heaters and put them on both sides of your desk. That's what I did.
