How can I clean the gray fabric covering speakers?

I have tried several things but have a couple stains from the kids that will not come out. I would like to take the cover off and spray it good with the hose but not sure if it's possible.

The cover should be held on by 1/4" hex head screws, you can use a 1/4" nut driver to remove them, I dont know if they are 2 on the bottom or 6 from behind on the sides. then the fun of trying to clean the stains? maybe some hydrogen peroxide?

To stain decks or other projects made of treated lumber, it has to be at least one year old, to allow the moisture from the treatment process to dry out. It the deck is already older than one year, then wash it with a deck cleaner, rinsing well. Give it a couple days to dry out entirely, then you are free to stain according to your stain manufactures instructions.

HOW TO SPOT CLEAN A CARPET I have a "furry family" of a dog and 2...

I have a "furry family" of a dog and 2 cats who I love dearly. Unfortunately, my carpet has suffered from several "accidents" and "upset tummies". It is a challenge to find an effective cleaner that cleans the stain, reduces the odor in the carpet, and is reasonably priced.

In the past, I have tried commercial products that were both expensive and ineffective. I have also used vinegar mixed with water and, although it was effective, it did not achieve the results that I would have liked. So one day, I decided to mix a little scented fabric softener in with the vinegar and water and VOILA what a difference! It removed the stain and left the carpet soft and smelling fresh. It has become my preferred method of dealing with pet stains on the carpet.

If you decide to give this a try, be sure to test this solution on an inconspicuous place on your carpet to be sure it does not discolor or lighten it. So far, I have had only good results from its use.

To Spot Clean a small area:

  1. Fill an empty clean spray bottle with equal parts of water and vinegar. Then add a capful of scented fabric softener to the bottle. Shake it up for 30 seconds.

  2. Spray the stained area

  3. Let it sit for 2 minutes and then spray a little more on it.

  4. Rub the stain with a dry cloth until it disappears.

  5. The vinegar odor will fade as it dries and helps to remove the foul smell

  6. Let it dry and you will notice a nice fresh smell and your carpet will be soft.

  7. Once you vacuum, you will have a hard time telling where the stain was.
I have actually used the mixture above in my Bissell Carpet Cleaning machine with good results. It is much less expensive than commercial carpet cleaning solutions. Be sure to read your machine manual or contact the manufacturer to make sure it does not affect its operation. So far my machine is tolerating it well.

This is a personal tip that I just wanted to share with others. I hope you find it useful.

This is a quick and easy way to save you a lot of time and money if you have ever had a dissasterous ink spill on a velour type durable fabric, such as what I experienced in a car Dealership years ago, my new car get ready man sat in a brand new vehicle that had velour seats and forgot he had a pen in his back pocket, when he sat down in the cars seat the pen opened up staining the seat and his uniform real bad!!
Here is what I did.....
we got a lot of plain clean white cotton rags, and a couple of aerosol,cans of "Brake Cleaner" any brand that is the cheapest in price, spray the affected area and blot with a clean rag, use this proceedure over and over until you start to see the stain lifting out off the seat fabric, you know hwen you are done as the last blotting will result in a clean white rag and an impeccably cleaned seat fabric, the only thing that is left behind is a smell from the brake cleaner, let the car air out using a fan and all doors/windows open and after the seat drys use a scented spray on the repaired area, that will not restain the seat cushion again.
The smell will be gone after a couple of days and a little venting of the interior. $10.00 of aerosol cans and white rags versus a t least a couple of hundred dollars in an ordered replacement seat cushion, plus labor.
Have Fun!!!

Just bought the Ace 2 gal poly deck sprayer but it will not spray just puts out a stream of there something extra I should have purchased to get this to spray ??

I had the same problem. The deck sprayers are meant for thin liquids, not the heavy stains. Some stains have a thin consistency, others are thick. You can go back and buy a thinner agent for your particular stain, but , in my experience doing that, it thinned it too much, the color was off and didnt cover right. I ended up using a roller and brush to do the job right.

Remove hard water stains from inside dish washer

one of the biggest problems with dishwashers, is the insides of it get covered with rust colored stains usually from the hardness of the water in your area.

the stains build up slowly from the water evaporating during the drying cycle, leaving mineral deposits on the interior of the unit.

By luck, I tripped upon a easy solution, thanks to one of my kids.

It seems she wanted to help out,and instead of putting dish washing soap in before starting the load, she put TANG breakfast drink in the dispensers.the citric acid seems to be the ingredient doing the trick.

Unbelievable, but true, the tang removed ALL of my staining, in one run.

give it a try, you'll be amazed.

TANG is a registered trademark of kraft foods.

I am looking at buying a Wagner Max HLVP sprayer. The jobs are staining a modest stretch of fencng and a larger staining project of an overhead pagoda-type structure. Is this a good choice or would you...

I was a painting contractor for last 10 years of my work career.

If you are using HVLC cup gun, you will have to select correct tip,
You will need to thin the latex 50-50 with water, and keep paint strained to keep out all clogging.
If the tip is not reversible, then expect disassemble each time clog happens.
And you will be continually re-filling the cup.
And then if the surface is rough, the spray won't flow into the holes.
You have a mess coming your way.

Painting a fence: A roller is the only way to paint/stain rough surface.
Buy big hairy 1" roller cover from Sherwin Williams. Don't get the cheapo 1/4" thick roller cover because it doesn't hold any paint. The big roller holds a big volume of paint.

Now if fence is rough, like cedar, you need to thin the stain.
About 1.5 gallon water per 5 of stain ... and suddenly you have 6-1/2 gallons of stain which means you bought too many gallons of stain.
So don't overbuy the stain. And pick up 2 plastic bucket for mixing.
Empty gallon of stain into mixing bucket > put water into empty gallon > put lid on gallon and shake up > pour water into mixing bucket with stain > to mix: pour mixing bucket of stain back and forth between other mixing bucket until stain is mixed. Do this work on the grass where it won't run out onto concrete surface.

Put roller and frame on a wood pole that you took off the push broom. Now roll that stain onto every surface the roller can touch. Think of it like picking up quarters. If it was money, could you get the roller on that spot >> the answer is yes. Don't try to smooth it out and make pretty. Throw the stain on any way the roller can turn. Customers used to call that 'slapping it on' and I used to say, 'that's how it works, lady.'

Use a piece of masonite at the bottom. If you get stain on anything, wash it off immediately and use a wire brush on concrete surface or towel on smooth surface.

Wait for a day, because stain looks 100% better next day. And then go back with a brush and hit the spots you couldn't get with the roller. It will be faster and cheaper and fewer headaches than trying to spray latex stain with a HVLP cup gun.

To clean the roller: Leave it on the roller frame and wood stick. Turn on water hose and get the roller spinning until it's clean. Do this away from everything you don't want stain on.

How can I get permanent black ink out of a white pair of pants?

Try spraying with hair spray or another spray product that won't stain. You are not using the product. The propellant is a good solvent. Hair spray and Lysol are my favorites as they don't seem to stain. RIT dye color remover may also work. If it is a large area your are probably out of luck.

Detergent is not completely dissolving

brotha, there is a couple service flashes out there that affect your model. They have to do with poor washability, redesign of the upper spray arm and top spinner. This could be your problem with the spray arms not hitting the soap dispenser properly. You would want to call Sears, I think you would be covered under these service flashes. Other things to check would be water temp. It should be at least 120 degrees entering the dishwasher. If the chopper screen is clogged with gunk, this would prevent a good flow of water to the upper spray arms as well. back.
