What is more cost effective: hand dryers or paper towels?

We recently switched from paper towels to a hand dryer in my deli. Although the initial cost is definitely more for a hand dryer, I think that it will ultimately end up saving me money that I would be spending later on constantly having to buy more rolls of paper towels.

Hp G62 dead after spill

In most cases, you are in a position where you may need to return it to HP for repair.

There is one thing you can try, but it takes a very gentle hand and touch: use something like Fantastic, or a more eco-friendly spray solution. Gently spray the key board all over where the spill went, which
means probably the whole keyboard.

Let it sit a few minutes, then turn it upside down on paper towels and let it drain.

Then, gently spray it again with plain water and let it sit upside down on more paper towels. Allow it to drain for a long time, something like a day or more.

When you turn the laptop right side up, you may find the keyboard fully functional again. But there is no guarantee. This works mostly on keyboards attached to desktop computers, not integrated into laptops.

The concept is the same - cleanse the keyboard, flush it, and allow it plenty of time to dry. Remember, liquid and electricity, no matter how low voltage, like a keyboard, are not friendly. If you try to use it before it is completely dry, you can fry more than just the keyboard.

It's possible to help it along with a gentle application of a hair blower, but not until after the two cleanings, and at least a day upside down on paper towels.

Good luck.

I have linoleum tile adhesive in my dryer, how can I remove it so I can dry my clothes someone put the towels that I was using by mistake in the dryer with the ...

You are going to need a hair dryer or heat gun; a throw away towel and some paper towels. Start out heating the adhesive until liquidy and then use the paper towel to absorb it. That should take care of most of it.
Then slightly dampen the throw away towel, put heat on the remaining adhesive until tacky then put the dampened towel over the adhesive and continue to heat the towel until the water steams.

That is way that works best for me.

Smell after drying

Try drying your clothes without the dryer sheet and see if the smell is still there. If it is not, then the problem is the dryer sheet.
If it is, then you need to describe the smell better. Different people handle smells differently. What smells musty to you may smell fragrant to others.
You need to determine if the smell you don't like is really a musty smell, or is it a fragrance you don't like. Have some friends (not family members) smell the clothes and verify if what you are smelling is musty or fragrant.

It could also be that even though the clothes smell OK out of the washer, that the detergent you are using is the cause.

How do I clean my samsung series4 flat lcd tv screen

First of all do not use paper toweling or other paper products as they can scratch the screen. A simple eco-friendly cleaning solution can be made using plain white vinegar & water in a 1:1 mixture. Avoid commercial glass cleaners as they are very harsh. Do not spray the solution on the screen directly as it could run down inside the screen and cause serious damage. Apply the solution to a micro-fiber cloth and very gently wipe the screen clean. The LCD screen is quite fragile so apply very light pressure. You can use this same technique on virtually any screen.

My dryer seems to be hot, however it takes forever to dry a load. Is 3 -4 hours normal to dry towels?

Your heater coil has burned into 2 parts. Find a friend WHO IS KNOWLEGABLE about dryers, Call a repair man or find a good used dryer. I understand this isn't what you wanted to hear, but this involves lint and 220 voltage. NOT to be taken lightly. The coil will cost around $50 and the repair men will be a minium of $75; Look in the paper and buy another one....
