How to clean lens on easyshare camera


Please never use cleaning fluids, unless they are delivered with the camera (it never happens)
To clean all lenses, first make sure you have blown off all dust and sand, You even can use a bellow with a little brush. Then use the lens pen if there is some grease on the front surface.
Lens pen has a little soft dome shaped point, with a soft coating. The coating is like microfiber cloth, but even finer.

When you are sure there is no sand on the lens, you could try a new microfiber cloth, but the best would be they sell in an optician shop. The ones you use for cleaning glasses. But don't try to press it to the side of the lens with anything that could damage the coating of the lens. Once the coating is damaged (scratch, or worse with a cleaning fluid) the lens will never be as clear and good in the colours as it ever was.

I wish to wash my Marmot down jacket- what products should I use and what is the best way to wash it?


you can buy specific detergent for down based products to clean and retain the insulation properties of teh jacket. I use NikWax down wash which works really well for my mountain hardwear down jacket. Follow the instructions which are usually:

put washing machine on clear cycle to flush all residue detergent out of the machine, use 1-2 capfulls of down wash and wash on a low heat 30-40 degrees. Then either air dry or my preferred method is to put it in the dryer by itself on a low heat with some clean tennis balls in the dryer - hey presto lovelly and clean jacket ready to go out and get mucky again

Pen exploded in dryer, blue ink all over inside of dryer, how do we remove?


The best way is to use paper towels and alcohol or hair spray. DON'T scratch the metal with an abrasive or you will damage the painted surface.

Why does my washing comes out with stains on it.... they weren't there when it went into the wash...


yes sometimes ink pens can be washed when we are not aware it was in someones pocket. I use straight ammonia and a cloth to clean my washing machine drum a couple times a year because these things have happened to me before. The ammonia will cut the grime and pen stains out of the drum. Then take a squirt bottle and fill it with white vinegar and squirt all around inside the drum of the machine. Run a wash without any clothes with the hottest water to clean the drum and clear out the stains. Do this to the dryer also and clean out the filters. Take the dispensers out from the washing machine and clean those too and your cleaning is done for a while. Apparently the ink has been in the drum of your washing machine and putting the color into your clothes. You can bleach out the white clothes that turned blue. Use the stain remover for colored clothes. Hope this will help you.

Hairspray is an excellent solution to the ballpoint pen ink problem. Buy the cheapest you can find and spray, let the spray sit on the spots for a few seconds and wipe with a paper towel. Keep doing this until the spot is removed. This also works on fabrics as well. As a former teacher, my red grading pen ruined several of my white shirts. I used my husband's $1.29 can of hairspray and saved over $100 in garments. He was pretty angry about my using all his hairspray but when I pointed out the money saved by not having to purchase new blouses, he relented. I keep a can of hairspray in my laundry room at all times.

Stain in dryer


This will work. Soak white towel or other white fabric in bleach water, then slightly wring them out, leaving very wet. Then put them in dryer, on low or fluff cycle. Run for 60 minutes or more. This should rub off all the ink in the dryer. You may have to repeat if you have alot of ink. I have done this a few times and it has always work, good luck.

I forgot to empty pocket. a ball point pen exploded and i have ink all over the inside of my dryer. I have not found anything to remove it. Any suggestions?


Try aerosol hair spray. It removes dried ink from clothes, may also work for your dryer. If not, try paint thinner or mineral spirits, available at any hardware store.
