How to get rid of hiccups

1. Get a glass of water. 2. While holding the glass and making sure not to spill the water, bend forward at your waist at an almost 90 degree or perpendicular angle. 3. With the glass in front of your mouth, drink at the opposite side of the glass. If done correctly, this would make you bend your head forward as you drink. It would seem like you're drinking in an upside down manner. 4. After 3 or 4 gulps of water, stand up straight and it's a surefire that your hiccups are gone!

Ihave had Hiccups for two days and need a method of stopping so I can get some sleep

Hey there "Lanier" do you still have the Hiccups ? if so, I will tell you how to get rid of them in 30 seconds.

get a medium size glass (10-12oz) fill it to about 1" full from the top, now while standing up, drop your head down put the glass to your mouth so that your trying to drink off of the opposite side of the glass than you normally would, so that your chin is actually in the glass and so the bottom of the glass is going back towards your chest, now as you slowly bend forward from your waist, start drinking the water out of the glass, (its like your trying to take a drink in the opposite fashion that you normally would) . Now you might spill a little but its ok, you only need to drink a small amount of water, now when your bent over and have had a few swallows of water, keep your head bent down for 10 seconds or so and now stand back up and pour the rest of the water down the sink because your Hiccups are gone.

Here is why this works, (it's actually a biological plumbing thing) the " Hiccups " are nothing more than an air bubble in your digestive system, so by bending over and drinking the water in this fashion, it lets the water run into your system and the air bubble to escape over the top. ( BTW my dad taught me this trick in 1965 and I've cured a million cases of Hiccups, plus I've won a lot of money in the bars showing people how to do this ).

You can thank me later...

how to install the rear clip on the whirlpool washer lsr9434pq4

Follow these steps:

1. First, make sure you have the washer casing seated correctly on the frame. With the lid of the washer open, place grasp case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.

2. Make sure the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side by leaning over the front of the washer and grasping the back panel and pull towards you.

3. Reinsert the brass clips by placing the 90 degree bend of the clip into the slot on the back of the washer first. With the clip inserted on the back panel, forcefully push the J-hook end of the clip down into the opening on top of the washer. The clip should snap back into place and the washer casing should fit tight against the back panel and frame.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Each clip has a 90 degree bend at one end, and a j-hook end at the other. The 90 degree bend fits into the back panel slot, the j-hook fits into the top panel. Make sure the clip is properly oriented, or it won't fit properly.
