How to make a forever dryer sheet

Wad up a ball of aluminum foil till it is the size of a baseball. Put it in your dryer and leave it there. The aluminum will remove static from your clothes and also works as a fabric softener. No more need for dryer sheets after every load.

simple test...
first, make sure your fob battery is fresh... they're cheap
next, take the rubber pad off and work with just the circuit board w/battery... next, take a very very small wad of aluminum foil... the size of a small marble is fine and then gently press it againt one of the contact grids on the circuit board, if it works, your remote is fine, but the metallic pads under the rubber have worn. They sell those in autoparts store for about 10$. If the aluminum foil does not work on anoy more buttons, make sure that the battery structure is sound... nothing loose and if not, consider it dead/erased if other remotes do work with this test

What is the difference between baseball and softball catcher's mitts?


The main difference between baseball and softball catcher's mitts is that the softball mitts have slightly less padding. This allows the softball catcher to grasp the ball easier, because it is much bigger than a baseball.

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Wool yarn
* Scissors
* Crochet hook
* Pantyhose or sock

Make the Core Ball
1.
Wrap some of the yarn around your fingers.
2. Take your fingers out of the loop you created and close the hole by pulling the yarn through it.
3. Wind yarn around the loop until you form a ball about 2 inches in circumference.
4. Cut the yarn attached to the ball using the scissors. Try to leave a little excess yarn dangling from the ball.
5. Grab the excess piece of yarn with the crochet hook and tuck it inside the ball to prevent the ball from unravelling during the felting process.
Primary Felting
6. Put the core ball into the pantyhose or sock, and tie the open end in a knot. (If you are felting more than one core ball at a time, you can separate them within the pantyhose or sock by twisting the fabric in between the balls before tying the knot.)
7. Put the pantyhose or sock containing the core ball into the washing machine with a load of laundry.
8. Remove the ball from the pantyhose or sock when the cycle is complete. It should now be slightly felted. To increase felting, simply repeat this process.
Enlarge the Ball
9. Wrap more yarn around the felted core ball to increase its size. It's all right if you make the dryer ball a little big at first, since it will shrink over time as you use it. A good initial size to make a dryer ball is around 9 inches in circumference.
10. Cut the yarn with the scissors once you have made the ball the appropriate size. Try to leave a little excess yarn dangling from the ball.
11. Tuck the excess yarn inside the ball with the crochet hook. This will prevent it from unravelling when in use.
Secondary Felting
12. Put the dryer ball into the pantyhose or sock, and tie the open end in a knot.
13.Put the pantyhose or sock into the washing machine with a load of laundry.
14. Remove the ball from the pantyhose or sock when the cycle is complete. The dryer ball should now be felted and ready for use the next time you do laundry.
