I have wax with ''dye'' on my white jet tub, and can't get it off. Have tried a hot hair dryer, flat edge razor scraper, iron on cotton, vinegar, bleach, and ''goop''. Any other ideas?

How do you clean the jets in a whirlpool tub? Is there any product to put in water and run jets to clean them?


Put white vinegar in the water and run it through your tub. Fill the tub to it's maximum running capacity, which is normally just above the jets, and pour a gallon of vinegar in the water with it. Let it run with the vinegar for about 20 minutes, then turn it off and let the vinegar sit in the jets for about 30 minutes. Then start up the jets again for about another 10 minutes and drain. Then run plan water through the jets for about 15 minutes, drain and that should do it. I would recommend doing this at least once every 2 months depending on your water type and how often you use the tub.

Tips for Waxing - My Guide to Home Hair Removal


Not everybody has the money to spend going to a beauty salon for all their home hair removal needs. For some people it's also just not that comfortable and they feel shy about it.
Whatever the reason, waxing at home is a good option for longer term hair removal, but it takes a bit more planning and knowledge than simply taking a razor into the shower with you.
Check out my tips below for successful home hair removal.

Here are some of my don'ts:
1. Don't wax just after you've been sunbathing or exposed to any other form of excessive heat.
2. Don't go into a bath, hot tub or any other heated water place for a few hours after you've waxed as your skin can get really sore and the pores are more likely to get exposed to bacteria.
3. Don't wax if you are suffering from any kind of allergies or skin condition. Waxing is a super irritant to the skin and you'll only make it worse.
4. Don't start waxing and half way through read the instructions. Make sure you read them BEFORE you get started.
5. Be careful not to burn yourself. Test the temperature of the wax using the inside of your wrist NOT your leg!

Some do's for waxing:
1. Make sure you pull the wax strip off in the right direction. You smooth the wax strip down in the direction of the hair growth and then pull off the strip in the other direction.
2. Pull the wax strip off in one very quick motion. You should make sure that your movement to remove the wax strip is fast as doing it slowly will not only hurt more but also be ineffective.
3.Once you've waxed an area - don't go back to it even if you've missed a bit as this can really damage the skin and cause friction burns and bruising.
4. Use tweezers to remove any stray hairs that didn't come out with the waxing.

My final advice is that you should start with waxing just your legs and see how it goes. Waxing bikini and under arm areas is even more painful and takes a lot of skill. So start with your legs and if you're confident move on and if not, you can always go to a salon for that.
Good Luck

I just melted my husbands shirt to my iron!!!!!!!!!! how do i clean this mess off of my iron???


Hi hahn rhonda...
Put your iron in the freezer and then use a scraper to scrap off the shirt when it is frozen.
If that does not work, the reheat your iron to the highest setting, after your iron is hot you can use an old cotton towel to iron backwards on to remove the shirt debris

How to clean lime scale out of iron tank


All you need for this is a cotton cloth and white vinegar, a small amount. And you have to rub with cotton cloth for the limescale. Vinegar will act and the limescale will disappear from here.

If it doesn't help you can mix the vinegar with baking soda and it will be a good start point.

When you have finished to polish and to clean the outside, you can clean your iron from inside. For this you have to put a small amount of vinegar and you have to mix it with water.

You have to switch it on to wait. And press the steam. All the limescale will come out of there.

You see? And your iron is shiny and clean, from inside and from outside as well. .

My steam iron will not steam. How do I clean it?


Mix (1 to 5 parts) white vinegar in distilled water and pour into the reservoir. Let sit for an hour or so, then pour out through a coffee filter into a container, then pour back into the iron for another hour. At this point, heat the iron and try the steamer function. The vinegar solution will clean deposits from the steam jets, so don't try to iron anything yet. Keep running solution through until sputtering stops. Wash out the reservoir with distilled water, then refill and steam wash the ports several times to remove the vinegar. If you can get it clean, continue to use only distilled water in the iron.
