Cleaning for your Home

Air Fryer/Oven Heating Coil - What you’ll want to do is make a paste using 3 parts baking soda and 1 part water. Then, coat this paste over your electric heating coils and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Once 15 minutes is up, spray the heating coil with vinegar and watch as it fizzles softly. This technique is great for a more thorough clean if burnt food has been sitting on your stove coils for weeks. You can also scrub the baking soda with your scrubby sponge to break down the tough stains.

Clog Toliet (if inside the pipe) - you could try putting crushed ice into the toliet and try flushing it down

Clothing - Vinegar as a Fabric Softener

Fridge/Refrigerator odour - put a roll of toliet paper inside the fridge. As toliet paper is porous, it will absorb the odour in the air.

Microwave (inside) - Using 2 cups of water, 1 chop-up lemon, and 3 tablespoon of vinegar. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Leave it inside for another 15 minutes. All the grease and gunk will be easier to clean now.

Mineral/Water stain - use potato skin or toothpaste to scrub, then rinse off with water

Orange peels/skins use:
-Natural deordorizer, simmer it in a pot of water. (for use in spray bottle or pour it down stinky drain)
-Clean your kitchen sink, washroom basin and tub, use it to scrub it clean

Oven Cleaner
-Option 1: baking soda (3 tablespoons) + water (1.5 tablespoons)
-Option 2: baking soda (3 tablespoons) + hydrogen peroxide (1 tablespoon) + water (1 tablespoon)
-Direction: Stir together. Apply to oven. Let sit for 20 minutes. Wipe Clean.
-Baking soda is a mildly abrasive cleaner that absorbs grease and is good for scrubbing. It helps to break up and remove the dirt that is stuck to the over surface without causing damage.
-Water softens the grime and baked on food particles so they can be easily wiped away.

Repel dust - add a little fabric softener to water to clean your everyday surfaces to eliminate the static cling that attracts dust

Stainless steel (prevent and remove fingerprint) - use WD40 to wipe clean

Stickers and stickers residue - use WD40 to wipe clean

Pain Killer (acetaminophen vs aspirin vs ibuprofen)

How long you can take medications after opening them

Should you take Tylenol, Advil, or aspirin for pain? Here's what the evidence says.

Acetaminophen [500-1000mg]: "It's an old drug, obsolete, and should be avoided altogether."

Aspirin [500-1000mg]: Aspirin is safer than acetaminophen. To be used as a pain reliever it requires much higher doses — which can have side effects like stomach upset. Aspirin also interferes with blood coagulation for days after taking it. "If you take one gram of aspirin," Brune explained, "you're at risk of bleeding for another four days." This is why aspirin has its place as a protective agent against strokes and heart attacks for people at a higher risk.

Ibuprofen [400mg]: "Ibuprofen puts people at risk of bleeds in the gastrointestinal tract and kidney damage". Using it in high doses also seems to raise blood pressure and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke — one reason the FDA recently warned people should only use ibuprofen (and other "nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs," or NSAIDS) for short periods of time and in small amounts.

NSAIDs ease pain, lower fever, and turn down inflammation. They can be very helpful for pain arising from inflammation-related conditions such as arthritis. Acetaminophen eases pain and fever, but does not affect inflammation. Patients with kidney, gastric, cardiovascular, or bleeding problems may need to avoid NSAIDS.

Green - identifies vegetation with military significance, such as woods, orchards, and vineyards

Blue - identifies hydrography or water features such as lakes, swamps, rivers, and drainage

Black - ndicates cultural (man-made) features such as buildings and roads, surveyed spot elevations, and all labels

Red - classifies cultural features, such as populated areas, main roads, and boundaries, on older maps

Other - Occasionally other colors may be used to show special information. These are indicated in the marginal information as a rule.

 

single dashed line - foot trail

parallel dashed lines - an unimproved or 4-wheel-drive trail

contour lines - the closer the spacing, the more rapid the change in elevation.

shaped triangle - the point side is level while the other side in a steep slope up

double triangle pointed at each other - a gate/door

Wish I Did/Know These Sooner:

Apartment/Condo
-avoid lower floors, especially older building, when drains get block, it will definitely back up to your flat
-avoid sky floor / sky garden / fire resistant floor / refuge floor, if there are any plants, you will get bugs, whether from balcony or windows
-avoid the top floor, if the roof leaks or is not maintain well, it will eventually leaks into your flat
-avoid the top few floor, if fresh/salt water pump stops working, flats near the top of the building will not have enough water pressure

Lasik Eye Surgery
-it is really amazing without glasses or contact lens
-just be sure to find a good reputable doctor

University/College Dorm
-even if it is 1 year
-even if you live closeby
-experience the dorm life
-it's once in a lifetime
-you won't know what you miss and may regret it in the future

Wisdom Teeth - Removed them all
-the younger you are, the faster you will heal
-if you are going to straighten your teeth (braces/invisalign), ask to remove those 4 teeth first
-if you have dental insurance (either through university/college or employment), it will be a lot cheaper or even fully covered
-even if you have perfect teeth, because they are at the back of your mouth,wisdom teeth are hard to brush and hard to keep clean
