Removing Hairspray from a Mirror?
Use window cleaner. Put it on thick, let it sit. Then keep reapplying. (Don't let it dry in between). It will get hairspray off of the mirror. Good luck! :)

Recovery Time for Dog With Parvo?
It took my dog a few weeks to get "better" and at least a full month to get back to her "old" self. Our vet only gave her a 20% chance of survival since we took her home and administered the medication ourselves. But I think she survived because we stayed with...

Two red lilies.

Garden: Lilies
@ Allison5 - You know Allison, I'm not sure what kind it is. I found a package of bulbs on sale at KMart and bought them. They are different colors and I was hoping for orange ones (like my late father's favorites, tiger lily's)... but this is the only one...

Homemade Flushable Wipes?
I use baby wipes and throw them in the trash (not in the toilet). Works great and is inexpensive! :)

Homemade Flushable Wipes?
Another idea for you: you could take paper towels, fold them into squares, wet them and put them into a zip lock sandwich baggies (to keep moist for a long time while they are in the bathroom). But of course, I wouldn't suggest flushing them either.

Insulating PEX Plumbing Under Tub?
Thank you! Lots of great information in your post! We do have skirting on our trailer, but it's not insulated or anything. I will get it insulated this summer so it won't be so cold in the winter. You have lots of great information about using straw bales and...

 

Plastic tub shelter for cats.

Storage Container for Inexpensive Cat Shelter
I've heard of this before, but they used two of those boxes, one larger than the other. They took the larger one and put insulation into it (along the sides), then sit the littler one inside of it. Cut out the holes and put the lid on. (And put upside down...

Virtual Assistant Website for Work from Home Jobs?
This looks like a valid work-at-home site: http://apply.westathome.com/overview.asp They are not hiring in Ohio (not sure why), but I have put in other cities and states and they will take your application. It doesn't require any money up-front and they pay...

 

Dryer Burns Out Outlets?
I think I know the problem (of course I'm coming to this conclusion with everyone's comments on here). I believe every time I use this, it's always plugged into something. Meaning, the "heavy duty" extension cord, or the 6 plug thing that takes 2 plugs and...

Repairing an RV Refrigerator?
We have a 1977 5th wheel. Our fridge went bad and we pulled ours out and put in another one. But when we had it out, we noticed there is a vent behind it. You can look for a vent and take the screws out and see if that control board is back there. Another idea...

CFL Bulbs Won't Work in Older 5th Wheel Camper
I found out the problem... we tried the regular light bulbs in the sockets and they did not work either. My husband and I was dumbfounded. But when he looked at a regular bulb and the one bulb that is working, he found the difference. The bulbs that work are...

Cat Urine Odor on Clothing?
I have the same problem. I just use laundry soap (cheap stuff) and 1/2 a box of baking soda. You are supposed to use cold water as hot seems to "set" the smell. But I start it in warm water so the laundry soap and baking soda mixes well, then switch it over...

Removing Anti-Reflective Coating from Glasses?
I also hate my anti-reflective coating on my glasses. I do not have an answer either. I just know that next time I buy glasses, they will NOT have this coating on them! Good luck in finding an answer. I am curious as well.

Training a Wolf Hybrid?
I got one as a pup and he's been a great dog. The mother was a wolf... the father must have been a husky mix. lol The picture is of Buddy and we've had him for over 10 years now. We did have another one a long time ago and he liked to attack the smaller dog...

Making a Mobile Home Belly Board?
I believe it is the bottom of the trailer. I crawled under my trailer once because a cat got in there. It was a kitten and the mother put it in there, but didn't come back to feed it. I had to tear out this board material (there was a hole in there already...

Toilet Isn't Flushing Well?
When ours bubbles, it means it's time for the plumber to come and "roto rooter" the sewer line. There's a blockage in there. Hopefully this helps. Misty

Subjects To Teach At Free Computer Classes?
Margaret What I meant about the receptionist comment is that it's not only about just answering the phone anymore. They are more involved than in the old days. Lighten up a little. I have been a receptionist and my job now is even a bit like being a receptionist...

Hello everyone. Just an update. I did buy one of these just over a month ago. I haven't got a new electric bill as of yet, so I'm not sure of any savings. I have noticed that once I plugged this one in and started using it, I was able to get rid of 2 space...

Prepare for Winter Before It Arrives?
Here's what I did last year to prepare for winter in a really old trailer (1962)... I got lots of used blankets (yard sales, friends, family) and used them on top of plastic on the windows. What a difference they made! We stapled them around all four corners...

 

Flower pot with small plants.

What Is This Plant? (Mint And Tomatoes)
I thinned out the stuff that appeared to be grass. Here's a close up of the one I believe to be mint? I'm not sure, but it does have some kind of smell when I break off a leaf. Husband said that it's just a smell of a plant, so I'm not sure.
