If the moisture is left in the duvet or pillow, it combines with proteins and natural oils present inside the feather which makes an ideal environment for fungus to grow. These fungal spores grow better with moisture and develop a stinky smell which eventually gets worse.
White vinegar is a powerful odor neutralizer and works wonders on underarm areas of fabrics. Fill your washing machine with water, then add 1/3 cup of white vinegar. Turn off the machine and let the garment soak for 20 minutes, then launder as usual.
Freeze the Candle Wax Place the candle in the freezer for several hours or until it is frozen. The wax should pop right out of the container, but you can also loosen it with a butter knife if necessary. Scrape off any residue and then clean the container with soap and water.
Place candle holders in a shallow pan and fill with water until the water covers the amount of wax left in the holder. Slowly bring the water to a gentle simmer and allow the wax to melt. As it melts pour it into a disposable cup. Don’t forget to use an oven mitt when pouring…
I just take a piece of paper towel, soak it in nail polish remover, and clean the inside of the candle jar. It works like a dream in removing any excess soot and/or wax and leaves the jar squeaky clean. I then wash it with some soap and pat it dry. Keep in mind that…
Lay a damp, lint-free white cloth over the wax and apply medium heat with an iron; the wax will adhere to the cloth. Use rubbing alcohol to remove residue. Or freeze the wax with an ice pack, then shatter the frozen clump with a blunt object, like the handle of a kitchen utensil.
Follow these steps to replace the EGR valve in your Toyota Camry: Remove the negative battery cable from your battery terminal. Locate the EGR valve—it should be connected to your car’s intake. You’ll likely find a cluster of hoses in the area.
If the EGR system is clogged up, or the valve is stuck closed, the combustion temperature increases. This may cause pinging (detonation), as well as surging on light acceleration. In a diesel engine, a bad EGR valve is one of the causes of a black smoke. The Check Engine light might also come on in…
Experts agree that the valve must be cleaned every few years. You can use the 50,000-mile gauge as a point of reference for when you need to do the cleaning.
There’s not one specific answer to how often an EGR valve should be replaced. Some will recommend getting it replaced every 40,000–50,000 miles. However, like with most other things in your vehicle, there is no mile number set in stone for when a piece of equipment will wear down and break.
