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
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:
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
Topographic Map - How to Read
Brown - identifies all relief features and elevation, such as contours on older edition maps, and cultivated land on red-light readable maps
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
