How to Get Rid of Scaly Lips

If you suffer from scaly lips, a simple do-it-yourself trick to exfoliate them takes only a finger scoop of Vaseline and a toothbrush.
Step 1: Slather lips with petroleum jelly
Step 2: Use a toothbrush to massage in the jelly in a circular motion.
Step 3: Wipe off the excess petroleum jelly.

The toothbrush exfoliates lips while the petroleum jelly leaves lips extra soft. Repeat a couple times a day until your lips are no longer scaly.

Want a more professional exofoliator that's perfect for the purse? Try The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ, a sugar scrub created just for the lips. The results are similar to my Vaseline and toothbrush trick, but it frankly tastes so great (I love the peppermint flavor) and leaves lips so soft and supple I think Sara should add a "Warning: May be Addictive" message on her label. Makes a great gift for any discerning friend.

Choose from a variety of flavors. Buy it online for $22.

How do I take apart a moen shower head?

You can remove the head from the shower arm by taking a crescent wrench. Put it on the flat sides of the nut on the showerhead and unscrew it counterclockwise. There is no way to take apart the Moen showerhead. If the reason you want to disassemble the showerhead is to clean it because it is clogged, disassembly is not needed. Just fill a Ziploc bag with a 50-50 solution of vinegar and warm water. Place the bag onto your shower head so it is fully immersed in the solution. Use a rubber band to hold it in place. Let it soak overnight and then take a toothbrush to any of the white scaly matter that might remain.

Hi I suffer from cracked lips. How can I treat it?

You can help treat cracked lips by drinking lots of fluids and using Essentielle de Colosé (Alpine Herbal Ointment), containing nutrients that are great for cracking, chapping, rough spots and irritations. Regularly use lip balm on your lips as well.

instruction manual for cuisinart auto grinb and brew 1 to 4 cups

Here is the trick with the Cuisinart Grind n Brews - their proportion sizes are based on a 5 oz cup - most coffee cups are about 8 oz cups - so you really need to use more than they suggest, but here is their reccomendation:

We recommend you use 1 scoop of whole
beans per cup. Maximum 14 scoops.
For 1 or 2 cups, use 1-1/2 level scoops
per cup. Adjust the recipe according
to individual taste.

how do I replace the door seal on my ZWF1421W washing machine

Unplug the machine first! Open the door and look around th edge of the seal. You will see a plastic clip, where the two ends engage (like crocodile teeth), prise it out toward you with a flatbladed screwdriver. Unpeel the seal frm around the door. Hold the top of the seal inside where it is attached to the drum and lift it slightly, then just pull it off. You will see it is held on with a big circular spring. Getting the new seal on is a pain. It must lip onto the plastic outer drum and will take patience to feed it on, not to say sore fingers! Once on, fold it intowards the drum and then you have to stretch the spring back onto the seal...more sore fingers. Maybe someone can hold it while you feed it aound (make sure also you have fitted the seal the right way up!). Finally, attach the outer lip onto the lip of the machine and reattach the outer plastic clip. Good luck!!!!!!!!
