A pen exploded in the dryer and I cannot remove the ink from inside the drum.


Hello 5.....
  1. Turn the dryer off and remove any laundry from inside the drum.

  2. Unplug the dryer.

  3. Dampen a paper towel with rubbing alcohol.

  4. Scrub the ink stain with the dampened towel. Repeat, if necessary, with a fresh towel dampened with rubbing alcohol, to remove all the ink.

  5. Wipe the area with a cloth dampened with water, to remove any alcohol residue.

  6. If the stain persists, soak a white rag with rubbing alcohol or hairspray and scrub the stain. It may take repeated applications to dissolve the ink. Joe

Every since I had my washer it has periodically left orange coloured stains on my laundry. I recently washed brand new towels that left huge stains all over the towels and ruined them. What is causing...


I'm guessing it's a mildew smell, if it is try setting the machine with nothing in it and use some Affresh once a month, you never know it might solve the other problem too.

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.

How to clean stainless steel


You say your new oven...and DW have stains...I will assume (if that's OK) that you have a stainless steel oven...and are washing stainless steel in the DW...but you are having streaks and or white...spots or deposits...Sounds like hard water...you may try a localized..(just for the DW and kitchen sink area) filtration system...to reduce hardness of water...(is this well water)..if so you definitely need filtration...if you don't already have it.
Here are some issues and or cleaning techniques for stainless steel.

stainless steel is known for its ability to be a clean surface that resists corrosion and rust. Dirt, dust and grime, however, put stainless steel at risk for corrosion and rust. Luckily, stainless steel responds well to cleaning, never wearing out from excessive cleaning, as long as certain rules are followed. 1. Water and a cloth.
Routine cleaning can be accomplished by using warm water and a cloth. This is the least risky option For cleaning stainless steel. Dry with a towel or cloth to prevent water spots. Wipe in the directions of the polish lines.
2. Mild detergent, (dish washing liquid) and cloth.
For cleaning that needs more power, mild detergent and warm water can do a great job without damaging the stainless steel. Make sure you rinse the surface thoroughly to prevent staining and spotting. Towel dry to prevent water spots which can be caused by minerals in water.
3. Glass cleaner for fingerprints.
Fingerprints are one of the biggest complaints about stainless steel, but can be taken care by using glass cleaner or household ammonia. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry. There are some newer types of finishes for stainless steel that resist fingerprints, a must if your pint-sized helpers leave their mark on your stainless steel appliances.
4. stainless steel Cleaner.
If you’ve had staining or scratching, or need to polish your stainless steel, a stainless steel cleaner may be a good option. Some of these cleaners and polishes can help minimize scratching and remove stains. They also can polish stainless steel surfaces nicely. Read the directions on the stainless steel cleaner and test in an inconspicuous spot. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and towel dry.

If this does not help please clarify...with specific model #'s and walk me through (step by step) what the specific problem is and how you address it....Thank you and I hope this helps.............
Good Luck...........The Fang.

I used kitchenaid cooktop cleaner but cannot remove burnt on stains. what do I use? This is a brand new cooktop-ceramic glass


make sure you are using the cleaner properly.
best way is to put it on like you would wax a car.
put on a heavy coating of cleaner and then let it dry, once it is fully dry, then use a wet towel and wipe it off, then dry with another towel and polish it to a shine. this should allow the stain to be absorbed into the cleaner and then will leave a "wax" on the surface to help prevent any future stains from happening.
if this doesnt work, then put on more cleaner and lay a wet paper towel over the stained area and cleaner. this will allow the cleaner to dry slower and should help to remove any stains.
by the way not all stains will come off the first or second cleaning.
just keep trying and the stain will come off. and if you get a spill again, wipe it off as soon as you can, even if the glass top is hot, it will help.

I dried a burgundy comforter in my new dryer & the inside turned pink. How do I get it out & will it stain other loads, such as my whites?


I recommend using Automotive Brake Cleaner and following up with mild dish soap . Dry with towel. Run dryer for 15 minutes with a few old but clean towels . If the stain is still visible but not on the towels then I would say that it would NOT stain you other clothes.

Stainless steel appliances ie. refrig, dishwasher & oven


a quality s/s cleaner and a clean cloth sould do the trick for most stains, WD-40 also works to remove the stains, works really well, also leaves afilm on the metal to prevent stains from adhering, just dont use paper towells, the tend to leave fibers behind. and also look closely at the s/s there is a GRAIN pattern in the metal just like wood would have a grain!! be sure to wipe in the direction with the grain not against.

Old washing machine is starting to leave grey streaks on clothing


hmmm..let's see..sounds like you have some residue accumulating from something possibly seeping into the tub. That can be old rubber, a metal sheath, or even an leak of lubricant. Like an old car, there are parts of every mechanical device that need to be attended to.

I'd recommend you find the most seasoned person that works on older machines, to come by and assess what is 'leaking' on your clothing. Grey comes from something metallic or rubber/plastic.

Hope you can solve this one, and keep that old machine happy.
