I got my husband one of these and our vacuum stopped looking like that. He scoffed at me when I bought it but now he loves it. :)

u/OmNomDeBonBon · 75 pointsr/interestingasfuck

A browse through Amazon shows this product (and similar contraptions) have horrendously bad reviews:

> This is the worst product I have bought on-line. At £50 including postage (it came without packaging) it just does not work. It is for hard to clean windows but the instructions advise wetting all of the outside of the window before starting. If they are hard to clean how do you wet them? It is difficult to place the outside element and magnetise it to the inside element. Once attached movement is poor and the two parts separate easily. The image suggests a child could use it. I doubt it very much. You need extra long arms to get the outside element out around the window frame, without falling out. Certainly not something I would recommend and if I could give less than one star I would. Avoid this like the plague.

fyi for carpets there's a broom like thing where at the ends, instead of bristles, it's basically rubber, to "sweep" up all the hair in the carpet. my mom uses it for my hella fluffy pomeranian when he's at max floof capacity (ie after he's done shedding and all his hair grows back in 1 week and he just poofs up like a popcorn)

edit: found it

I've been wanting to build my own watch for years, but there is lots of terminology, and always worried about getting the right pieces and knowing what the hell I was doing.

I finally got motivated enough to to make this when I saw:

I struggled putting on the second had, it is RIDICULOUSLY tiny, and took me about 45 minutes of trying.

Unfortunately I cut the winding stick thingy (mind=blank) a fraction too short and now, after winding it up twice, it no longer winds up; I think something must have come loose, so I will have to take it apart and see if I can replace that bit. Any suggestions as to it's name would be appreciated.

Over all, i'm very pleasantly surprised by the parts I got. I didn't realise that the strap would be quite as nice, and the glass (mineral) is very nice to look at with a nice magnification of the dial and a bluish tint when the light bounces off it.

I am bit disappointed that I didn't make it with a date function, I keep looking for the date that my previous Hugo Boss chronograph had, although I don't miss it's other features all that much.

My next watch, I will make for my wife. It wont be quite as large, but I haven't decided any more than that about it. I still need to pick her brains on what style she wants.

I used this brush

4in 4 Piece Soft, Medium and Stiff Power Scrubbing Brush Drill Attachment for Cleaning Showers, Tubs, Bathrooms, Tile, Grout, Carpet, Tires, Boats by DrillStuff

And also used this cleaner. It works so great and you’re supposed to dilute it 20-1 so a little goes a really long way.

Chemical Guys CWS_103_16 Fabric...

It was crazy easy, I just sprayed a bit of the cleaner. Let it sit for about 30 seconds and started using the drill brush and you can see the stuff come up immediately. I used a microfiber to clean up after the brushing and I was done. No steaming or extracting necessary.

u/HarMar · 30 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

It's called melamine foam, and is also used in soundproofing rooms. You can buy the off brand stuff for WAAAY cheaper than Mr clean. Here's 100 of them for 10 bucks with free shipping. Mr clean wants like 8 bucks for 4 of them.

Its just a string so if you drop the outside part it doesnt fall all the way to the ground outside.

Edit: I ordered this one!!! It even doubles as a squeegee!! I'm so excited lol thanks, OP! It's going to be amazing on my wood stairs AND carpet.

"Magic erasers" are your enemy, "Melamine sponges" are your friend.

They're exactly the same thing, but it costs 20x less if you you don't buy the brand name.

u/nexusheli · 16 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Roaches don't just magically appear, they were almost certainly there before; it's just a matter of where they had to hide previously vs. now.

Clean everything. Vacuum/mop all the floors, wipe all horizontal surfaces, empty sinks and wipe clean thoroughly. Basically deep clean the entire house. Hire a maid service if need be. They have a food source somewhere; find it and eliminate it. Don't leave dirty dishes in the sink, rinse them. Don't leave crumbs or dirty plates on tables or floors. Don't leave any sort of candy or other food wrappers laying around. Have kids? Check everywhere they are likely to have wiped their hands for smeared remnants of food.

Go get yourself a big old bag of food grade DE and a duster. Spray that shit in all cracks and crevices in the house; around/under/behind cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms, under baseboards (especially exterior walls), and around any gaps in window and door frames. If your bathroom floor is uneven, feel free to get it into any crevices under the toilet if it's not caulked down.

It's cold and wet this time of year, so unfortunately DE bombing outside isn't going to help much. Come spring/summer if you hit a dry spell in your area be sure to examine the exterior of the house for cracks, crevices, and gaps where pests can get in and either find a way to fix them, or bomb them with DE. Unfortunately DE doesn't not work well in really humid climates or when it's wet - you may need to reapply occasionally.

u/DarknStormies · 16 pointsr/boating

More line than you think you need. Double the line. You can never have enough line.

Waterproof, powerful flashlight my recommendation

Plastic bag with a lanyard for valuables/wallets/phones/licenses. Alternatively, a pelican case.

A pair of vice grip pliers ("The wrong tool to get every job done right")

A knife, as others said. I work professionally on the water as well as boating recreationally. The Myerchin Rigging Knife is the best all purpose knife to have on board. It might be a little overkill, but when you need a line cut fifteen seconds ago, you'll be glad you have it.

A VHF handheld radio and a knowledge of what channels are monitored by the USCG (13, 16, 22A), Commercial traffic (13/16) and local police/fire departments

Spare fuses, bulbs, plugs

A Towboat US membership

A bigger, heavier anchor if you're anywhere with a decent amount of current (rivers, oceans). I'm very much a proponent of overkill when it comes to anchoring. I use an anchor way bigger than my 20' pontoon needs, and it's a tad pricey, but once I drop it and pay out the scope, I rarely worry about dragging.

Bag of cleaning supplies. Rags, paper towels, and the holy trinity of vinyl care: melamine pads, CLR Mold & Mildew, and 303 protectant

Most important item of all: A bleach bottle with the bottom cut off

I bought microfiber cloths like this years ago and they're still in great shape. I also have some cloth napkins to set at the table with dinner, but I use the microfiber most of the time.

I keep them in a metal basket and throw them in the wash when dirty. I do use paper towels on occasion though, like when a frozen food instructs you to wrap something in a paper towel - although obviously that could be avoided if you really wanted to. I also use disposable wipes for cleaning really dirty stuff like around my toilet, because I would feel kind of icky throwing that stuff in with my wash. I still use the cloths for the majority of my wiping needs and it's cut down on my waste a lot.

Same thing. All a Magic Eraser is is a melamine sponge, and one has a significant name brand upcharge. I have a bag of 100 of them in my closet I got for $6.63 or so. Arrived via the slow boat but they are perfect.

Edit: The ones I got are $8.99 now.
Still a good price on 100.

u/Mylin · 13 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

My best "hack" is to buy a stack of these. Keep a stack in the bathroom then before bed wipe down the sink, counter, and toilet quickly. Throw the rag in a separate laundry bag so you just wash the entire stack at once. I do the same in the kitchen at night. Grab a cloth and wipe down the sink and counters.

Every morning you wake to a clean bathroom and a clean kitchen.

u/abela · 11 pointsr/Ultralight

Here is an alternative, and what I have been using for the last few hiking seasons... Stainless Steel Scrubbing Scouring Pads. They weigh pretty much nothing, can deal with just about anything inside of your pot/cup, and if there is moisture inside your pot/cup it will not matter as they are totally resistant to being wet all day, in between meals. They will not damage any of the aluminium, stainless steel, and/or titanium pots/cups that we all use. I even use one inside of my MSR Ceramic Solo Pot, which normally you would think would be a huge no-no, but so far it has caused zero damage to the ceramic lining. I cut my scrubber in half, as they are rather large. They last a freaking long time (easily get an entire hiking season out of one of them), and you do not have to worry about nasties building up inside of them like those sponge scrubbers, or worse, a bandana, and if you really feel like getting one of these clean, you can just toss it into your pot/cup with some boiling water, without any worry. It really has become the ideal cleaning method/device for me. Give one of them a try!

You can buy everything online, though it's easier to go to a harbor freight with a coupon if you have one. There are plenty of polishers you can buy online of course, but none are as cheap (at least with decent quality) as the harbor freight model. You can of course buy a much better polisher at your local lowes / home depot however unless you have a lot more use for it it's probably not worth it over the harbor freight one (a good polisher will cost you $200+). Everything else you can find at any auto parts store, or maybe even walmart.

Here's some links

  1. Start with touch ups if needed. Apply touchup paint to chips with a toothpick, in small amounts. Let it dry and do another one, build it up until it's above the level of the surrounding paint (may take many coats). Let it dry at least several days and make sure it hasn't sunk in. After it's dried for several days, use some water and the sanding block to gently sand them down flush with the rest of the paint. It will look bad, don't worry. Give the paint a few weeks to cure before moving on.
  2. Wash the whole car with dawn dish soap and let it dry. Mix up some dish soap (maybe 1 tablespoon) with water in a spray bottle. Spray a section with the soapy water and then rub it down with the clay. This is a very mild abrasive which will remove contaminates, tar, bugs, etc and give you smooth clean paint. Wash car after.
  3. Use the rubbing compound with the cutting pad everywhere you can. Don't try to get into tight areas or spots where you can't put the pad flush, because you'll shred the foam pad. Do the tough spots by hand with foam pads. Wash the car to remove any residue.
  4. Repeat with the polish pad and polish, same technique as with cutting.
  5. Apply the duragloss to a clean car by hand with the cloth applicators. Use sparingly, then wipe off with microfiber rags.

    You are done! In most environments the duragloss will last 6+ months. If you keep your car protected with it, you won't need to do the cutting/polishing again (or at least, not for a while).

    The trickiest part of the whole process is the compounding and polishing. Here are some helpful videos.

  1. If you have black rubber trim, say around the windows, mirrors, door handles, etc you either need to keep the polisher away from it or put masking tape on top of it. The rubbing compound and polisher will scuff up softer materials like rubber and it will look bad.
  2. When working with the polisher, always turn it off while still on the surface of the car (preferably still moving it) and let it slow down before lifting it off. If you life the polisher off at full speed it might send the polishing pad flying (it's held on with sturdy velcro). When this happens the velcro is basically shot and you're going to need to get a new pad. If you make sure you always turn it off while still in contact with the car, and you don't try to put it on any sharp corners or narrow areas where you can't get good flat pressure across the whole pad, you should be able to do the entire car with a single pad.

u/landon0605 · 8 pointsr/motorcycles

As a professional auto detailer, this is what I do to keep the bike looking spiffy with minimal risk of swirling the paint.

First, I use a pressure washer on my bike, it's a 2000 psi washer so no real risk of damage to anything and works great for getting those bugs out of the radiator and tiny little crevices as well as a good majority of the dirt which is just less to grind into the paint when you finally hit it with the ONR ( A hose would work also, just not as effective. (If you have the money, go buy yourself a foam cannon with some chemical guys honey dew soap and save yourself some time)

Then I grab 2 buckets with Grit Guards in each. ( and fill one with ONR and the other is a rinse bucket. The washing part is pretty simple. Buy yourself a microfiber wash mitt, dip it in the bucket with ONR and scrub an area of the bike down. Rinse it off and the rinse bucket and repeat until the bike is clean. Pro tip: Do your paint first and other areas that can be easily swirled and work your way to the dirtier areas on the bottom of the bike that are more likely to have the mitt pick up dirt.

I dry the bike with a leaf blower dedicated to detailing (basically one that has never been used in reverse to suck leaves up) to get all the hard to reach places dry. You can also use a standard microfiber drying towel for this.

Once it is dry, I'll hit the chrome with a chrome polish and put a coat of wax on (collinite 845 is my go to, but any mequiers wax is plenty good) and hit the mirrors and headlight with some glass cleaner.

If you have a chain, put some wax on that bad boy since you most likely just washed it all off. I don't put any kind of vinyl or leather protection on the seat because shit is always slippery. I know wheels look nice when they are nice and shinny, but you will eat shit if you put on any kind of wheel shine.

u/superlosernerd · 7 pointsr/powerwashingporn
u/Chahles88 · 7 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I cook primarily on cast iron. Here are some things I've learned:

  1. If you are lucky, you'll be able to find some vintage cast iron. You won't regret it. I'm not talking collector status 1800's stuff, but the stuff made in the 1950's is WORLDS better than modern Lodge stuff. Check out craigslist. Don't pay more than $20-$30 for a pan. Most people think they have a collector item worth $100 or more, but if you do a little research, you can pick out some nice pans for cheap, and be educated is very helpful in negociating. I picked up a set of 6 pans off CL for $50 (Griswold and unmarked Wagner pans, pre-1950's).

  2. When you have your pans, you need to clean/ season them. DON'T use flax oil. It is hard, but as a result it is very brittle and won't last. This guy has the best videos detailing how to clean/season cast iron. The TL;DW is:

    1. Clean pans using a self cleaning oven cycle, you can beat the shit out of these pans cleaning them. Clean, unseasoned pans will rust in a matter of minutes, do not worry.

    2. Season. If you bought new pans, start here. You'll want to rub a thin layer of Crisco onto your PREHEATED (this opens up pores in the iron) ALL OVER, inside, out, even in the handle notch. Then, you take another dry towel and try to wipe it all off<--very important. You just want a thin film, any more than that you will get sticky drips of unpolymerized oil. This thin film will be your base seasoning, and done properly will prevent rust. Bake upside down @350 for ~30-45 mins. to polymerize the fat.

  3. General care. Get yourself a set of these. Any supermarket should have them. They scrub pretty much anything off a properly seasoned pan. For tougher messes, boil a thin layer of water to loosen up the gunk. You should avoid cooking any acidic foods in cast iron: wine, vinegar, tomatoes, citrus will all mess with your seasoning. NEVER leave the pans wet. Even well seasoned pans will rust if left wet. Wash and dry right away. You should not use soap, I use a little bit if the pan is particularly greasy, but soap will weaken the seasoning. You can always rub a bit of oil on the pan after cleaning if you are worried about rust.

    Additional tips:

    -Don't be too concerned about aesthetics. These pans can take a beating. The inside/outside will become discolored with heavy use.

    -Cast iron pans are a healthy choice. They are a great way to increase your iron intake, something you don't get with enameled cast iron. To be honest, well seasoned cast iron, although less nonstick than Teflon cancer pans, is more nonstick than enameled cast iron. The pans impart a bit of iron to your food when you cook in them. Low iron makes you sleepy, and if you consume a lot of dairy, it blocks iron absorption. Vitamin C increases iron absorption.

    -Learn to cook properly with these pans to get the most out of them. Use fat, don't be afraid of it, you don't consume most of the fat that you cook your food in.

    -Coconut oil is a great healthy option and can be bought for cheap at Sam's/Costco/BJ's, Also look for any ethnic grocer that sells Swad brand products, their coconut oil is bomb and quite cheap.

    -Don't use olive oil. It can be oxidized to a trans fat at high heat (only unsaturated fats can do this, trans fats are the only fats scientifically linked to heart disease).

    -Preheat the pan! If it isn't sizzling when you drop it in, it WILL stick. Don't try to flip things too early, it will also stick, you want a nice crust to form.

    Best of luck!
u/kryren · 6 pointsr/AskWomen

We have a Dyson DC41 and it does a good job of keeping the carpet clean of my long, ever shedding hair, plus the two dogs and the cat.

Another, cheaper option is to buy a rubber broom and run it back and forth along the carpet. The hair sticks to the rubber bristles and the come up to the top. Depending on how much hair you have in the carpet, the broom will roll it into small ropes that you can then vacuum up.

We've tried both and found that the dyson gets out the same amount of hair as the broom (on our carpets), but keep the broom around for cleaning out the cars.

u/dissaver · 6 pointsr/HomeImprovement

No experience per se, but I have used a rubber tined "rake" called the Fur Remover on lower pile carpet before with good results.

u/sundaypie · 6 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Try it with a microfiber cloth like these (that's just an example so you can see what I mean lol). I've used the simple brand with the microfiber cloths and it gets the makeup off pretty well. What I find works best is to use the cloth and baby oil first. Baby oil+microfiber cloth gets off EVERYTHINg, even waterproof stuff. It's amazing and won't clog pores or anything like that. I use the micellar water after to cleanse and get rid of the oil.

u/AJBats · 6 pointsr/oculus

I had one of these clothes lying around, and I found if I folded it once and wore it over my head, I could wear the rift much loser and gain a ton of long term comfort. It allowed me to play skyrim VR for hours straight, where typically I get odd strap pains that only manifest over long sessions.

Edit: Trick works on Vive Deluxe strap too, and it does a ton to make the Vive tolerable comfort wise.

Dude, yes. If it's anything like the rubbery white caps on my converse, Magic Eraser (and honestly, the cheap knock off's too) works a charm!

u/ChaseD17 · 6 pointsr/jmu

pro tip: get a magic eraser or 100 generic ones for the same price for the coffee stain. also stop pouring coffee down your walls

u/Nautricity · 5 pointsr/cars

If you're looking to do a long term value purchase, here's a great setup I can recommend! You may even already have some of these products reducing from the investment cost!
Electric Pressure Washer - $89

Snow Foam Cannon Attachment - $17.88

Shammy / Chamois Towel of Your Choice* - $8.25

Shammy / Chamois help you remove the water off a car so you can go ahead and start waxing once its dry.

1 Gallon of Snow Foam - $29.99

22 Oz Spray Wax Bottle - $12.99

Any pack of microfiber towels, spray like 2 sprays of wax on the microfiber, wipe around, take another microfiber to wipe away wax. $4

1 Gallon Acid / Non-Acid Based Wheel Cleaner (This one is acidic) - $18.99
Dilute the wheel cleaner, spray on the wheels and tires, let it sit for a little bit, then pressure wash off.

Add a clay bar if you want to get embedded dirt / brake dust off your paint! It's easy to do, costs a little, but the results are worth it.

THESE ARE MOSTLY PREMIUM CLEANING PRODUCTS! You can cut a few dollars off by going with more generic products. Why go with Gallons? You dilute all of these (except wax of course), so they will last you a looooooooooooooooong time if used correctly.

The investment is worth it if you ask me, instead of going through your local 1 minute wash for $10 or whatever, you can do a more thorough job yourself!

Or something similar. Works really well!

u/Shippolo · 5 pointsr/teslamotors

Real talk, I've been using some weird rubber pet hair broom (like this thing) for the last 5 or 6 years. It's far and away the best snow removal tool i've ever used. I can easily reach every part of the various cars/ trucks I've used it on. It's like a super soft rubber so it's basically impossible to scratch anything and it leaves everything squeaky clean/dry and snow doesn't get stuck in the bristles so you can clear like a foot of snow off your entire car without ever having to mess with it.

I still have a normal ice scraper/brush thing that i keep in my car for actual ice though.

I am a left handed sushi chef too! This is common if you let it stay 100% wet. I usually do my cleaning and dry it the best I can...then about 15 mins or so later i come back with a sushi eraser and polish it up.

They come in handy...

try that, keeps the knife pretty.

u/gedvondur · 5 pointsr/castiron

So first off, always test for lead on any pan you don't know where it's been. But that has to be done while the pan is stripped. You can't tell if it's lead without the test.

Burning off on a grill can lead to warping. Just use oven cleaner or a lye bath.

Use stainless steel wool, not steel wool. Steel wool can leave particles behind that prevents adhesion of seasoning via rapid corrosion.

The dark spots are some sort of light pitting. A lot of pans have these stains. The only real way to get rid of them is electrolysis, and even then I have pans with shadows on them. The good news is that the dark spots will disappear with seasoning and the rough patch will eventually, with use, fill in with seasoning.

Nice little pan, btw!

I'll give my /r/AutoDetailing inspired rundown. I live in an apartment so a lot of this is extra hassle if you have access to water.

2 Bucket (apartment) Method Wash

  • 5 gallon bucket of water (w/grit guard)

  • 5 gallon bucket premixed soap and grit guard

  • Head down to the local self service wash. The kind with the foamy brush and pressure washer. (ONLY THERE FOR THE WATER)

  • I follow 2 Bucket method above but my process is a bit different since I'm paying for the water.

    • Clean wheels/wheel wells, exhaust tips, rinse, wet car and remove built up debris/bugs with remaining time

    • Clean roof, windows, hood, front, rinse

    • Clean driver side (not bottom), back, passenger side (not bottom), go back and clean bottom of sides, rinse

      • If time remaining, switch to low pressure for final rinse

  • Dry car and head home!

    My personal favorite wax is Collonite #845. I also like Griot's Best in Show since it can be found in big box stores locally.

    I would also recommend a paint protection such as Cquartz as extra protection against winters and daily driving.

    The absolute #1 rule to keeping your car swirl free, NEVER USE AUTOMATIC CAR WASHES.
u/pulseOXE · 5 pointsr/AutoDetailing

Honestly, the kit is only an OK deal. It's fairly overpriced for what it contains.
For less money (assuming I'm looking at the same bundle as you), I'd get the following:

  • - same foam gun, different branding
  • - Mr. Pink is PH balanced soap that foams extremely well, and is just as good in buckets. Citrus Wash and Gloss will strip wax.
  • Microfiber wash mitts.
  • Cheap, half decent microfibers.
  • - Drying Towels

    Also, it's really important, at least in my opinion, to have 2 buckets and Grit Guards. I'd get two of these: and pick up some buckets at Home Depot or Lowes, or order one of the bucket/grit guard kits from Autopia.

    Finally, Microfibers are an investment as long as you take care of them. What I linked is cheap, OK quality stuff. Check out The Rag Company, and maybe consider getting one of their starter packs for better rags.

Awesome idea! If you love that person that much more, just had to share a step up from this product without having to know tire pressure:

Added this to my wheels and having pressure and a quick temperature readout in the morning before leaving my kitchen is pretty insanely nifty.

Other ideas for OP:

Cat Crap (visor antifogger):

Lock Laces:

>1) I was just a dumbass for using the scouring pad

Possibly?! Was it like This Or more like This ?

I've never had anything stick so bad that a little hot water and one of These couldn't get it off easily.


>2) I was seasoning them with too-thin coats of oil

Not likely, you want it wiped down almost dry, you sound like you did good here.


>3) The quality of my seasoning was somehow marred by tiny bits of rust I couldn't see

Tiny invisible rust won't hurt. But oiling over a raw pan that's not 100% dry and then baking, can cause issues with the seasoning sticking.


For a long time this Flax seed oil method has been praised as being the end all and be all of seasoning cast iron. More and more lately I've been hearing stories like yours. There's got to be something to it. Either people are doing it wrong, or it's not really as good as people say. All I can say is that people seasoned pans without issue for the last 100+ years using whatever kind of grease they had on hand, and it worked just fine.

I've had pretty good luck with Olive Oil (Even though others may disagree). I've since moved on to using Sunflower oil and like it very much. I use only metal utensils, and only scrub with the pads I linked above and have never had the issue of seasoning flaking off.


Here's a few links with other people having problems with their Flax seasoning. Maybe you can glean some info from them.

My Flax seed problem.

"It worked nice. I was happy. But it didn't last."

"I like using olive oil better because olive oil in thin layers do not flake off like flaxseed for me"

After 8 coats, the surface looked great, the eggs slide off nicely and I thought we were golden. Then...the seasoning started to wear/cook off quickly.

I tried one of those on a really dirty tub once, and it did not work well at all. It did look a fair bit cheaper than the one you linked. But what worked the absolute best was one of those stainless steel scrubby things.

u/ausdertraum · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Get a clothes brush. Make sure it's bristle (or horsehair), brass ones could be too aggressive for wool.

u/Romoth · 4 pointsr/houston

The shirts are the cheapest part to dry clean and you can even get away with touching up the ironing on your own is you were an undershirt or don't get them too sweaty.

If you get a good suit brush (is the one I use), you can save a lot of dry cleaning on your pants and suit jackets. I use it a lot and it's really better for the fabric long term (compared to dry cleaning regularly). Something to think about, and good luck with the new job!

u/1marty3cups · 4 pointsr/DIY


Magic Erasers are gods gift to sneaker heads everywhere.

Also, don't buy name brand Magic Erasers.

Generic Melamine board can be purchased wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy cheaper.

Amazon has 100pcs for <$7. The name brand ones don't break down as fast, but at this price point, you could use them once and throw them away and still spend less than the name brand ones.

u/GSlayerBrian · 4 pointsr/thinkpad

Melamine sponges have a very fine abrasive quality which is perfect for this application. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are just melamine sponges impregnated with a detergent.

Just a generic melamine sponge with rubbing alcohol should work really well.

Thank you for mentioning that you can't mix these chemicals!

I think it's my shampoo and conditioner- I get buildup in my tub really fast.

While it has never looked like this (ew. Just... ew.) I use fill and soak with bleach method as well. I find the smell to be less abrasive than Comet, which is the next best thing for removing soap scum, in my opinion.

I don't use other chemicals in that same day, though. I fill the tub with hot water (if you have a crappy hot water tank, think of maybe adding some water you boil on the stove) and add a few cups of bleach. Let that sit for about an hour or so- no less than 30 minutes. Then get a pair of gloves and a dish sponge like this and start to work on the sides- dip the sponge into the bleach water, scrub over the area, repeat.

For a job this big... you might need to do this a couple times.

u/TemptedTemplar · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I haven't done one myself. But if you don't want to ruin the default shell, BASSTOP and some other companies on Amazon sell after market shells.

First you need to take a scour pad to the surface you want to paint. Rinse it off and make sure its clean and dry before painting.

Use a spray primer before painting. I would recommend a matte black or white. The use spray or acrylic paints to get your desired colors/effects/designs.

Then use a spray clear coat to seal it.

I'd look up plastic painting tutorials, a lot of the same practices can be used to achieve different results with controller shells.

u/SheepishMoose · 3 pointsr/vinyl

Here's my method, I'll try to be thorough but bear with me, I'm at work.

What you'll need:

3 - MicroFiber Cloths

1 - Shampoo

1 - Eye Glass/Lens Cloth

1 - Isopropyl (99%)

2 - Spray Bottles

1 - Distilled Water

  1. Get a few of these bad boys, can be purchased pretty cheap at any auto store / Target, if you have none around the house.

  2. Lay down 1 Microfiber Cloth, place record on top.

  3. Go to your bathroom, grab some shampoo, and drizzle a little bit around said record.

  4. Spray down the shampoo / record with the distilled water, I use a water bottle, a little easier to control than a hose.

  5. Take a second Microfiber Cloth (they usual come in packs anyways) and start wiping the record the way of the grooves. I try to start from the inside out in a clockwise motion. Somewhere between gentle and hard pressure, I guess that'd be medium pressure.

  6. Flip record and repeat steps 3-5.

  7. Head over to that sink! At an angle, so the water drips off the bottom and not onto the label, rinse off the record with the distilled water. (Don't worry about getting a little water on the label, it will dry if it's only a little, but I wouldn't recommend submerging them, they are only paper after all.) Flip and do both sides.

  8. Now have another (dry) Microfiber Cloth ready on a flat surface, put a paper towel down on top of the cloth. Lay newly cleaned record down onto towel, take another paper towel and lay it flat on the record, pat dry.

  9. Take a mixture (I use 35/65) distilled water and Isopropyl and spray it onto the record (I use four squirts from a smaller bottle).

  10. Run a Lens Cloth around the record, again from inside out. This will help dry the record thoroughly and not scratch it up or leave fibers like a paper towel would.

  11. Flip and repeat steps 9+10.

  12. Lay newly cleaned record on sleeve somewhere to air dry any parts that may still be a tiny bit damp (label, etc) or my favorite, play your shiny new record.

    I've found this to be the simplest and most cost effective way to clean my records without buying anything special. I already had everything I needed around the house and it truly works wonders. I got a Tribe record for .99 cents, they said it was in terrible condition, skips, noise, the works. Took that sucker home, put it through my system, and it's almost like a brand new record, plays wonderfully.

    Whenever I bring a used record home I wash it. If I take out a record, put it on, there's surface noise, and a quick micro wipe down doesn't do the trick I'll give it a clean, usually 'cleans' the audio right up.

    Sorry this is so wordy, use method at your own risk, be gentle, records are friends. Easy Listening!
u/viatessblog · 3 pointsr/minimalism

The food was mostly IBS and intolerance triggering stuff. I bought this pack of napkins and this pack of cloths from Amazon Prime. Even though I got the big pack of cloths I use them for all cleaning jobs. Also, getting my first set of cloth napkins in white will help me gauge how long they last and how dirty they get over time, so next time I repurchase in the next ~5 years I'll know how long they last until they get nasty enough to become rags. Sometimes I still need to use paper towels if I don't have any end of the line cloths to use and toss or if my cats poop somewhere they're not supposed to, which thankfully rarely happens.

u/TuMadreTambien · 3 pointsr/AutoDetailing

These from Amazon are great for what you specified. This is a huge box of them for $17. That’s almost 4x as many for only $10 more. I bought 2 boxes under Subscribe and Save (not available any more) for about $14. I just trash them if they get nasty. They never touch paint though.

u/GUI_Center · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

Go to home depot or lowes and buy a pack of these. They are around $2.50 for a pack of 3.

Sanitize 1. While you're doing that remove the liquid post and clear/re-sanitize it. When you put it back in, before pushing it all the way down use SS tongs or something to let you push the end of the dip tube into the middle of the pad. Push the dip tube all the way down and reattach post.

Problem solved for less than $1.

Do yourself a favor, and pickup some diatomaceous earth and a powder duster to rid yourself of the those little demons. The BIL had them and had bug bombed and had 2 different exterminators try to kill them... But was still infested. We grabbed these, dusted ALL over anywhere they were or could hide.... Been rid of them over a year now since that single dusting we did.

Below are the ones that we picked up. But your local Walmart/Lowes/Home Depot should also have similar items.

You'd think the frequency you're getting bit, that you'd see one somewhere by now.. kinda sounds like there's a few fleas still lingering. My brother had a flea issue and bought this trap and said it started catching fleas within 15 min. Can't hurt to get one or 2 to use in the rooms you're noticing bites in.

He was also dealing with a bedbug problem at the time and used this CimeXa Powder and it helped a ton also. He used a 1" angled paint brush to apply the powder to the cracks and crevices and a powder duster to dust larger areas.

I'm still organizing it, but my "kit" includes:

  • DSLR Camera, prime lenses, camera bag

  • Wooden yard stick (Scale bar and setting depth of field)

  • IR remote control for camera (more steady camera triggering)

  • Tripod on casters for faster shot setups

  • Athlete's foot spray ($1 each at the dollar store)

  • Developer's spray / Dulling spray

  • temporary/removable rubberized paint (basecoat before spraying perm. paint) example

  • Multi-colored textured spray paint Example

  • Powder duster for applying inexpensive dust to objects. I haven't perfected this process. It's messy and the powder can change appearance between camera shots and spoil your entire photoshoot. I'd still like to figure out a better way because flour, baking soda, baby powder, and other dusty substances are far cheaper than spraypaint and athlete's foot spray.

  • retractable kabuki brush for applying powder. I'm still experimenting with this, but it's a standard item included with the NextEngine 3D Scanner and they recommend applying talc powder to a lanolin base.

  • Smart phone with lightmeter app, depth-of-field calculator app

  • "Muslin" quick-clamps to drape a bedsheet behind object to diffuse lighting

  • log book for optimal camera settings (dry erase board is faster for me)

  • dry erase board for snapping a pic of my settings

  • stickers for registration marks. I have only tried ordinary circular stickers without the computer generated encoded targets and have so far been disappointed with the results.

    There's probably more, but that's all I can think of for now.


  • $10 Lazy susan turntable from Ikea

  • CNC controlled camera gantry for automated image capturing

  • Field monitor for easier camera focusing. It's much harder on the small camera display.

  • WiFi enabled camera or a WiFi enabled SD memory card

  • A light tent - preferably with an entire setup with variable LED lighting from reddit user /u/Iontrades_

  • Green screen backdrop for experimenting with the automask feature in 3DF Zephyr software. I may also experiment with other backdrop colors, threadcounts, and thicknesses to optimize contrast (between the workpiece and backdrop) and optimize lighting.

  • Experimental mixture of white baby powder, black pepper, and acetone to make it stick together. I haven't tried this yet, but I'm hoping that the acetone would help it stick to the workpiece and quickly evaporate.

Turtle Wax Orange Car Wash

The Absorber to dry with.

A dry blade helps get the initial water off.

[California brush] ( works for the dust between washes.

There are a bazillion swirl removers out there. I wouldn't recommend using any of them unless you have some sort of electric buffer/polisher. I tried without one and I wanted to commit suicide it was such a horrible process. If you do have a power tool, get whatever brand sounds nice. Meguiars has some good ones but I can't recommend anything here.

Carnuba wax ...they have [wax for black cars[( but I've never tried it.

Finger Gloves

Seriously. These are not just finger cots which are the flimsy little things you use to briefly do something unpleasant. These are actual good quality material gloves for your fingers made out of rubber but allow the normal amount of dexterity you would have without them.

One note, they don't do a great job of allowing you to use a smart phone, but if your fingertips are all torn up you're probably not too keen on touching things like a touch screen at the moment anyway.

I have psoriasis on my finger tips these are the only things i've found that allow me to retain usage of my hands without cracking and bleeding all over or having the desire to get rid of the raggedy skin.

You can get them from the manufacturer too if you want. their site is a little crappy, but the gloves are great.

It's friggin' awesome this thing... I tried it out on an area that had already been vacuumed - and it pulled up stuff the vacuum had left behind. Definitely requires "raking" action than "push broom" action.

u/eggpl4nt · 2 pointsr/gifs

My particular one is the FURemover, I got it on Amazon for around $20. You use it just like a rake, raking up all the hair haha.

Here's a link:

u/ProjectSnowman · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

What's different from your old house?

/u/majesticjg has the right idea. We've noticed that area's without carpet have the least amount of "animal" smells. Dust and hair get pushed into the corners of the rooms by the ceiling fans and we just sweep them up every couple of days. Soft surfaces like carpet and cloth trap and hold dust and hair. This is one of the best tools for rugs and carpet. It pulls up all the crud that gets stuck down in the fibers that a regular vacuum just can't get. It works really good on berber and not as good on shag, so YMMV.

We have 10+ animals in our house and our filter still looks brand new after 6 months, it's one of those $30 12 month monster filters (I should check it again though). We also only have one bad shedder who we comb regularly and that seems to help the most out of everything. Grooming your pets is something that people tend to forget, but is an important part of owning a pet. The GSD/Husky mix is the worst shedder I've ever seen and we usually have to give him a good combing every couple of months. A Furminator is nice, but we just use a fine tooth comb or one of those metal bristle brush. If you dogs don't mind the vacuum, having someone there with the hose to suck up all the hair makes things a lot cleaner.

u/sneaky_dragon · 2 pointsr/Rabbits

You can use a rubber broom. I bought this one.

u/goombahshapeless · 2 pointsr/dogs

I have an american eskimo mix who sheds all the time in a household with (mild) dog allergies so we vacum a lot. If you have high pile carpet, none of the roombas we've tried seem to be able to get all the fur totally out of the carpet. It does pretty well but there still is visible fur clumps after it runs. We either run a regular vacuum once a month as a deep clean or use a carpet rake to get the rest of the fur out. The carpet rake works better for us since our dog is terrified of the regular vacuum (He does fine with the roomba tho).

Wax is THE most important thing for your car. Waiting a year or two isn't a good idea because the sun will damage your paint by then. If you want you keep your car mint, get some wax on there and then focus on the interior.

Also, add a duster to the list. You should keep people/pets away and wear a respirator/dust mask when using the duster to apply DE, but dusters spread much more evenly/finely and can get in cracks/bedding/furniture better. To apply DE to pet fur, just pour it on (try to avoid their nose/mouth area).

u/Tri0ptimum · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

Reverse osmosis filtered, or just filtered water, is better than straight tap. I'm not sure about distilled. This is why you have the white stuff outside the smartpots, it's calcium buildup from your unfiltered tap water. Ph any water of course. I think you might need to let the plants get really dry, no water for at least 2 days. Also might as well check the Ph meter against a common household substance with known acidity levels (google for a chart) to see if it's in the right range. Or grab a Ph test kit or strips. Buy this for your drainage, and empty the runoff daily (ideally as soon as you can after it finishes draining):

Leaving it sitting in water will cause bad things. The roots will grow out the bottom of the pot looking for water and quickly rot. Between using tap water and letting the pots sit in runoff, and possibly over feeding, I bet those were most of your problems. The existing damaged leaves won't get any better, but hopefully it'll droop less, and new leaves will stay healthy :).

Quick tip, if you're ever unsure whether your cloth will damage a screen or leave scratches, take it and find an old cd and try to rub the bottom of the CD as hard as you can. If you see more scratches then before, I would avoid using it, but if it comes out scratch-free then its safe to use.

I have the white seats and a 5 year old boy who I take to soccer games and whatnot. So far so good for me... I also hear for real tough stains you can use a melamine sponge (like these: but I haven't had to bother.

u/killerbae · 2 pointsr/AutoDetailing

My dealerships kinda cheap actually so I think a drill with adjustable speed and these brushes would be better.

FYI those expensive pva cooling towels can be found in the automotive cleaning isle they are used to dry off your car. They are twice the size and cost less money. This is what i use The Absorber.

u/robinson217 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

It just occurred to me today that my Explorer is the only car left that I had when I bought my absorber in 2006. Since then I've gotten married, did a stint in the military, moved 4 times, had three kids and half a dozen cars have come and gone, two of which were driven to their demise. But the $8 (in 2006) shami is still going.

u/kevan0317 · 1 pointr/subaru

Roughly speaking: Brushless is better for your paint - brush is better at removing dirt/grim. Bring a chamois and some wax-as-you-dry. Pull over to the side of the car-wash when you're done and dry/wax the car off (doesn't have to be perfect). Use a different cloth to dry your wheels. You dont want brake dust/particulate making it's way back up to your paint. Pretty simple methodology I use, but then again i'm down south where it's not below 32F everyday. hope this helps point you in the right direct! post up some pics when she's clean!

Chamois example

How did the waffle weave towel do for drying I've been using something like this, but I was thinking about getting one of the Meguiar's waffle weave towels.

u/keyamb · 1 pointr/boating

Ideally no, not dishwashing soap. My understanding is that the chemicals are harsher on the gel coat as well as the environment.

That being said the most popular soap in my neck of the woods is Orpine It goes for a pretty penny. (There's a smaller $20 bottle FYI)

In it's defense though, the gel is highly concentrated, you don't use too much per wash which means that that gallon jug will last way longer than you would ever imagine...but still, $70? Just don't let your kids pour the shit all over and waste it.

I'd also like to add that I'm very fond of the smell of it so much that I'm hoping one day they'll start a body soap or deodorant or something. That's pretty much the one thing that has the edge over a few other boat soaps that come to mind e.g. Turtle Wax, MaryKate SuperSuds, and whatever other crap they sell at West Marine.

As for the Chamois, it really is pretty much the most important part of the process. Basically you rinse, you soap, You rinse again. Soap helps lift the dirt, ash, goop, blood stains, whatever. When you rinse the second (and last time) and leave it to air dry you're leaving all the minerals or residue from the hose water to sit and thus dirty the boat again. You'll see water ring stains from the dried up water droplets on the gel coat, wood, metal, etc. It's definitely an OCD thing but that's how I learned...especially if you get into waxing your boat but that's a whole other discussion.

BTW, an Absorber chamois goes for about $15. The Shurhold Mop is another expensive item for what it is but it's an accessory to a very good and sturdy telescoping pole with very good quality brush heads.

I used to clean boats for a living and after a while you realize that it is expensive to be cheap. Buy once, take care of your tools and they'll love you forever.

Protip: Get into the habit of having NeverDull around. It'll make your metal forever shiny if you just give the rails and other visible metals a quick wipe after you've cleaned and dried it all. The product produces a light haze so give it one last wipe with a dry cloth and you're all set.

Too much information?

Ps. This is the first time I try all these jazzy hyperlinks on a reply. I hope they work.

Edit: had to fix the links as predicted.

What kind of boat do you have anyway?

u/GetawayDriving · 1 pointr/teslamotors

Wipe the car down with one of these.

I've used them for years, including on my model 3. If the car is clean it won't scratch. It'll suck up ALL of those water spots. It's brilliant. Just be sure to keep our moist.

I got this as a psuedo-joke, but little did I know that it would be AMAZING for cleaning up the carpet of my love's hair before vacuuming. The rake just takes hair, sticks it to the rubber spikes, and catches every clump you would miss with your eyes. It really is awesome, haha.

So I guess I post my answers here.

  1. This item is good for storing and sharing all of your magical concotions, be it polyjuice potion or love potion. Just be careful to not have too much fun with it.
  2. This broom made of high quality material will last you forever, and can probably handle a trip to space, so getting around campus should be no problem.
  3. With a bit of magic, this item can help you defend yourself against the toughest washroom trolls.
    4. A book! And well, it is a book about a non-descript wizard. I could learn some very valuable lessons from it.
  4. This little number can be used to store your photos from family back home, or your collectible wizard cards from the packs of chocolate frogs you'll find around campus. You can also magic it to protect your lunch from those nasty Primeryns.
  5. This book is a pretty magical one, and can help you improve your magic dramatically by teaching you how to spell. (hurr, I think I'm punny.)

Hair rake and squeege

u/wohengvanow · 1 pointr/VacuumCleaners

i would probably go home with a sebo K3 if i were in your shoes (or can go big with a D4). Sebo's quick fieldstrip head will come in handy in removing the medium/long hair, washing/disinfecting, and i dont think there's anything else like it in that regard. a new roll costs like $25 if you happen to kill it. Not sure if it comes with parquet or kombi head also but they work good with front brush removed. Sebo bags are cheaper than miele i think, but 2/3 the size unless you shell out the $$$ for a D4 which is more comparable to a miele C3. Smaller bag capacity could be a good thing. How long do you really want crap to ferment in the vacuum anyway?


The Miele C3 costs more but has bigger bag comparable to sebo D4. the SEB236/228 powerheads basically dont fieldstrip at all, but it has a slot in the brushroll for scissors. I would probably pick a C2 or C3 for a house with no pets.


Both choice are totl for filtration. Spend the savings on bags. Change often if it smells. Buy bag tablets.


On second thought, maybe a vacuum cleaner is the wrong tool for massive amounts of fur. You wouldn't use pliars to remove a lug nut.. but you could. Long hair and spinning brushes don't seem like they should go together. Maybe the suction can be used in conjunction with a specialized tool?

I have to clean the outside of my filters every 3-6 months. The pores on the outside clog up with a thin slick sort of film in my case. I use a 3M scouring pad and very lightly rub it on the outside. Then rinse the filters with clean water. You really should disassemble and clean your Berkey at least once every six months anyways.

u/TheBrickster · 1 pointr/craftsman113

Thanks for the reply!

Haha it was mostly just because a lot of the threads online about cast iron table saws and rust seem to warn against it. I have a ROS but no belt sander so that definitely could be an option. I did stick one of these on the ROS and go over the top after electrolysis and it did an okay job of cleaning up and smoothing out the area to the left of the blade opening and miter slot (it was comparable to the right section. I'll post an update after I have a chance to work on it some more this weekend!

u/JustNilt · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

A friend's ex did this regularly to their business vehicle. He learned that a car wash with the high pressure hose works fairly well and you can use a green scrubbie (Amazon link because some folks have asked what that is before) very gently to get any remaining bits out. If you get down to metal, make sure you use some touchup paint to seal that back up or it'll rust on you.

His ex tended to just graze them. If you have serious damage, you probably need to be careful of removing too much other paint. HTH

Edit: Forgot to add that if there are minor scratches left, you can often buff them out with rubbing compound (ask at any auto parts store).

u/mechanicalpulse · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

I use a heavy duty abrasive scouring pad to clean my toilet. Something like this or this. It works like nothing else. I've used pumice stones with good results, too, but the scour pad is my go-to now since the abrasive doesn't wear down like pumice does. Others in the thread are concerned about leaving scratches. I just checked the bowl with the flashlight and I don't see any.

u/Titanchain · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

To wash my face, I either just use my fingers or else I will use a konjac sponge or my Clarisonic. Then I use these cloths to wipe my face. Our sinks in this rental suck, so I can't just fill them and do a proper rinse, so I do best I can and then wet one of these to get any remaining soap. Then I use one of these yoga towels to dry. I just hold it to my face and press it slightly. I don't try to fully dry my skin off because I just don't need to unless I am going to be using acids after. I use one of the little cloths each time I do my routine, so two a day, and then the yoga towel I use one side in the morning and one at night and then wash them.

u/blacktieaffair · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

What are your experiences with Silk Naturals products like their BHA, AHA, and Vitamin C serum? The Vit C serum has a really attractive price as compared to Paula's Choice.

Also, I got Alpha Hydrox AHA lotion (10% I think) as well as The Body Shop TTO for Christmas and I'm still unsure of how to incorporate them into my skincare routine. I was thinking of trying the AHA lotion once a week, maybe building up to it for regular use, as I'm currently using PC 8% AHA and could probably stand to go higher percentage now. With the TTO, I've tried using a cotton tip to dab it on my acne, but I'm not really sure if it's doing anything. I used it for about a week.

Finally, are these good MF cloths for the face?

u/Ponchoboy12 · 1 pointr/Woodwork

There's a couple of different kinds of microfiber cloths, but I'm going to assume you're talking about this stuff

In my experience, microfibers tend to stick to wood, getting caught behind even the tinyest imperfections. That makes for a shitty material to purpose for rubbing over wood. Doesn't mean you can't use them for that anyway, just prepare for feeling like your did a shit job sanding regardless of how well you did.

But you're by far not limited to lint free cotton. You could also use a regular (clean) brush (just watch out for escaped brush hairs, and make sure your stain isn't too thick or the brush stripes won't spread out and disappear). Paper kitchen towels or just toilet paper work fine on wood that's been sanded to like grit 300 and above. In a pinch, a sponge (tends to degrade due to friction, but the chunks are easily cleaned off) will work fine too.

Just beware that whatever you use won't be usable for anything else after the fact.

I used Mothers 155900 Carpet & Upholstery Brush when I cleaned up my old car to sell it. Worked really well to break up salt stains/residue from a few years worth of Canadian winter road salt.

u/Trezorchest · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

Mothers 155900 Packages 155901 Carpet and Upholstery Brush

This was one of the first brushes I bought probably 5 years ago when I started and still one of my favorites to date. Something with a handle may be more comfortable with you but I can work with either.

Magic erasers will help pull up dirt and stubborn stains on leather and vinyl/plastic. Just be gentle when using it.

For leather I just soak a microfiber in water and wring it out really good. Then I squirt some leather conditioner on the towel and massage it in the towel so you don’t get conditioner in the cracks of seats. May need to re damp towel and definitely add a few more squirts of conditioner as you go. Let sit for a few minutes depending on temp and buff with a dry microfiber towel. If you get conditioner in a crack just use that dry towel to rub it out! Also I use leather conditioner on all my door panels, any kind of plastic, inside cup holders, etc. pretty much try to hit anything that isn’t fabric.

Also the more you massage the conditioner in the seat the better chance you have at removing tough stains/built up grime.

Goodluck and hope this helped!!

u/Loonaroonarmoonar · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

If your vacuum is having trouble, also remember you can use something like Tuff Stuff and a carpet brush to break out some junk that usually doesn't come out with a vacuum sweep. It might turn out to be cheaper than a new vacuum. Though if you're just looking to buy a new vacuum, try out this AMA by a vacuum repair technician.

u/Blacksm1th · 1 pointr/homestead

Looks like cooked on food, or hard water deposit. Go to the store, get a scouring pad, and go to town. It'll take awhile, but it should clean right up.

u/toddriffic · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

If it's hops you'll have to clean out the tube/poppet/tap/etc. then find a way to filter it BEFORE it enters the dip tube.

Someone below mentioned a muslin bag, but that might cause resistance or foam up the beer.

Stainless steel scouring pads might work. (this was suggested to me once here when I had the same issue). THESE But make sure you boil/sanitize them first and then just get it the bottom of the keg around the bottom of the dip tube. The idea is this will catch the hop sediment before it enters the dip tube. Good luck!

u/hummusimful · 1 pointr/foodhacks

Let it sit overnight with water and some dish soap. Then boil with washing soda Sodium Carbonate, if still stubborn then like IceColdCarnivore said scoure with a stainless steal pad and some elbow grease....

u/jacksheerin · 1 pointr/castiron

The chain mail thing is great if you want to go that route. Personally I just use a perfectly normal stainless steel scouring pad that you can buy pretty much anywhere for a few dollars. I literally get them at my supermarket and for the past 10 years they have gotten the job done just fine. Good luck!

edit: as to this stuff

>I guess I’ll just buy a chainmail scrubber - but what do I do after cooking? Let it cool? Can I cool it down with cold water? Is 10-15 minutes enough cooking? Do I then go at it with the chainmail and running water?

I let mine cool off. Usually I just go eat dinner. Then when I wash up I wash the pan. Cooling it with cold water .. well I've done it. It works. People will tell you that you have a chance of warping/cracking the pan. If it is hot enough they are correct! So typically I just leave it on the stove till after my meal and then clean up.

>I’m new to this all and struggling. My housemates are all having a go at me for using soap and I explained that lye is the problem but they look at me like I’m an idiot.

Soap gets things clean. Clean is good. Use soap.

u/mrfuzzyshorts · 1 pointr/charcoal

Good choice. I have the same. Here are some bullet points:

  • I have a job box that I set it on top of to cook, and store it inside the job box when not in use.
  • I keep the grate indoors and clean it after every use. A simple course steel pad will work just fine. It and some Dawn dish soap.
  • I clean out the ash after every use. (I store it in a knee high metal trash can)
  • I use a chimney stack to start standard charcoal briquettes You only need to fill it 3/4 of the way full.
  • You can easily close the vents and cap off to kill the briquettes and use them on the next grilling.
  • I clean grill itself twice a year. Once in the fall before the winter season. And then again late spring/early summer. Once again, some Dawn and the above steel scouring pad works fine.

    I cook all the time for my lady and myself. 4 burgers. 8 wings. A full slap of spare ribs (cut in haft), 2 T-bone steaks, Shish-kabobs . So this grill is perfect for your application. Granted, don't plan on cooking a side with most meals, as the meat takes up a good amount of room.

  • Yes you can do Hot and Cold sides. Just put your charcoal to one side. Granted this does limit your cooking space. So you may have to do something like burgers in batches.

    Oil is not needed. Thou I tend to Pam not stick spray the griddle right before I put the meat on. It works fine. A little elbow grease when you clean it may be needed, but it is fairly easy.

No just lock stitching, but those are being cuffed twice so you won't see the hem and I don't think it needed to be chain stitched since those hems weren't anything special I think. None of them offer chain stitching I can find here in Houston yet.

The tailor who said dry cleaning is better is right next door to a Dry cleaner... so Idk... about her. Her reviews were good on google, but I never really used a tailor before.

I am fine with wrinkles. Though I do want to learn how to iron or steam my clothes. I never ironed before. I thought about buying a steamer but I am not sure which one I should buy or how much they cost and finding out when they go on sale or is a good time to buy. Same with buying a depiller and a garment brush. I was looking at something like this to brush my clothes. Though I don't honestly see the difference between a 100% horse or boar hair brush vs a cheaper 100% horse or boar hair brush that is used to shoes or beard for much cheaper. Just not as many bristles on some

I'm not sure how well a lint roller would get into the engravings. I personally would try alternating toothbrush and compressed air until it's clean, then resume. Actually, I'd probably just use watchmaker's putty because I have weird things like that laying around the house, but toothbrush and air should be fine.

You can probably avoid getting more crud back in the engravings by lightly soaking a sponge with linseed oil and then just dabbing it on those areas.

At the lower end of the budget, you could get this. Plenty of them, so you could use a few for your monitors or just for all around dusting purposes.

However, they're aren't the best quality towels. If you're willing to spend more than that, you can get higher quality towels, or you could probably spend around the same as that and just get one or two. Because you're in Canada however, I am not really certain on the best places to purchase microfibers without doubling the price due to shipping. (Free shipping on the link I provided, with order over $25)

u/reckless-man · 1 pointr/vita

Microfiber cloth that is slightly damp. I picked some of these up a while back and they are what I have been using...

u/Repa · 1 pointr/Surface

A large microfiber cloth works great for fingerprints and such. The smaller ones are insufficient, like the ones for eyeglasses, so I recommend the ones that are roughly 6" squared. These ones look like the ones I use; they're good for cleaning the mirrors in your house and the windshield in your car since they don't streak:

edit: don't use the same cloth that you was your windshield with on your Surface, the ammonia cleaner will eat through the protective covering.

I also frequent /r/skincareaddiction and you can't go wrong with a pack of soft microfiber cloths for drying his face.

I'm planning to write a post in the interior soon but for now...

The first step is to give everything a really good going over with a vacuum. This is where you need to spend most of your time. Almost everything that's not leather can be cleaned with an All Purpose Cleaner (UK link and US link):
Spray it on, agitate with a brush (ordinary paint brush will do). Then...

If it's fabric - vacuum with a wet-dry vac (use a cloth if you don't have one)
If it's trim - wipe dry with a microfibre (UK link and US link)

To protect things I really like 303 Aerospace Protectant... it protects against fading caused by UV radiation (UK link and US link)

Leather is a different kettle of fish and you need to use a cleaner then a conditioner (UK link and US link)

I bought THESE. So far, they have worked well for me. Nothing 'Big Name' about them, but I've used them and washed them a couple times and they hold up fine to normal use. Hard use seems to wear them out, but they are pretty cheap.

You figured this out already, but don't use paper towels if you can help it. Get the large microfiber towels like these. If you have a Harbor Freight in your area you can get 3 for like a buck. Those tiny ones that come with your glasses are for the birds. Also make sure to only use water or specialized glasses cleaner. Never use Windex or the like to clean your specs. Good luck!

Here is your magic eraser. Only without label. Probably 10 times cheaper on aliexpress (if you ignore shipping).

How about $12 for 100? Works just as well as the name brand...

I use a [melanine sponge] ( myself and it works pretty well.

u/Moosewing · 1 pointr/Aquariums

Does anyone have any experience using cheap melamine sponges to clean their tanks? Specifically the generic ones you can buy in bulk like these. I'm mainly concerned about them deteriorating inside the tank while I'm using them.

u/mostoriginalusername · 1 pointr/politics

That's fucking awful, I would be absolutely livid if that happened to my kitty. Seems like the same thing the sponges are made of after all.

u/GreystarOrg · 1 pointr/instantpot

A toothbrush with a smaller head or something like this:

Go generic on the sponges no need to pay extra for a bald dude on the packing

These are amazing and totally worth it. Dry the windows and steel first so don't get water spots.
