  • How much laundry detergent should I be using?

    I do laundry every week. I use a liquid detergent -- whatever is on sale when I'm running out. For the time being it's Arm and Hammer. Sometimes its Sun and sometimes (usually) it's Purex. I live alone, and I wear pants two days in a row (usually), so I'll end up having three pairs of slacks,... show more
    I do laundry every week. I use a liquid detergent -- whatever is on sale when I'm running out. For the time being it's Arm and Hammer. Sometimes its Sun and sometimes (usually) it's Purex. I live alone, and I wear pants two days in a row (usually), so I'll end up having three pairs of slacks, six shirts, six pairs of underwear and six pairs of socks. Then every other week I have a load of rags, towels, wash cloths sheets and pillow cases. I usually use 1/3 of a capful of detergent and add a scoop of Dollar Tree Brand oxi-clean stain booster. If I'm doing my towels and sheets, I about 1/3 of a bottle of Dollar Tree scent booster. I used to use fabric softener sheets in the dryer, but I stopped when I ran out a them and could not notice any difference in the softness of my clothes without them. I also pretreat any noticeable stains as soon as possible by soaking the entire stain with Oxi-Clean spray stain remover, and then soaking it overnight in warm water with a scoop of the Dollar Tree brand Oxi-clean substitute, then air drying until laundry day. Since my clothes don't get heavily soiled and since I pre-treat, I feel safe using a cheaper brand of detergent, and I like the results I'm getting, but money is want to get the maximum possible loads of laundry out of every bottle.

  • Is this soap safe to use?

    I have a dawn antibacterial dish washing soap and the date on the bottle is in three months. Is it still safe to use? Also, if you use soap past the date does it not kill germs and/or can it be toxic?

  • Is a wet dry vac a good replacement for a regular vacuum cleaner?

    I need a new vacuum cleaner and I'm thinking of replacing it with a wet dry vac. Is that practical? I'm just wondering if there are still things I would need a regular vacuum for. Are wet dry vacs too heavy/bulky for vacuuming stairs? Do they pick up as much fine dust? Are they messy to empty?

  • Why are my dark coloured cotton work socks fading so soon?

    Best answer: Because they're rubbish socks! A lot of brands that used to be good sell their name under licence to cheap factories. Finding good socks is becoming hard. You buy a dozen good ones and they last for a few years, then when you buy the same brand again they're inferior. I don't know what to advise you... show more
    Best answer: Because they're rubbish socks! A lot of brands that used to be good sell their name under licence to cheap factories. Finding good socks is becoming hard. You buy a dozen good ones and they last for a few years, then when you buy the same brand again they're inferior. I don't know what to advise you brandwise anymore. Not even good old M&S is so good anymore. You shouldn't wash your socks cool unless you have a tumble drier as you need at least 60 to kill off athlete's foot spores. If the socks are holding up okay you could redye them. Dylon dyes are cheap and pretty good as long as you follow the instructions.

    PS wash socks inside out to stop lint from other clothes adhering to them which can make them look grey, also it rinses away dead skin better.

  • What is the fastest most effective way to get rid of bed bugs? I have a bug phobia!?

    Best answer: Exterminator has the right chemicals to effectively kill bedbugs. Limit people coming over because they can be carrying bedbugs and eggs on their clothing, shoes, jacket, purses, toys, blankets, etc. This goes for riding in cars that are not yours or giving an infested person rides in your vehicle. Don't borrow books from the library, don't shop at second hand stores or if you do thoroughly check, bag, and heat items on high heat. Only my family visits 2-3 times a year, there are no such thing as friends. Remember anyone can potentially be carrying bed bugs and eggs but they can also carry other bugs and eggs too. Do not pickup furniture from a friend or discarded furniture on the street either.Treat by a professional immediately!!
