Tip

Good care equals good results


Making great sauces, dips, dressings and chopping yummy veggies or crumble bread and other foods, rather than buying them already made, is fun and satisfactory, but, as usual, the less pleasant part is when it's time to clean up.

How can you keep a food processor, chopper or dicer clean and ready to be used again?

First of all it's important to take apart the whole of the machine, separating all the smaller parts so to clean them thoroughly and remove food residues.
They should all be washed with warm water and soap and not scrubbed too hard.

The blades should not be soaked in water, rather be gently washed and wiped down right after usage, to preserve them.
Another way for cleaning the blades without cutting yourself is by using nylon brushes.

Most removable parts can also be washed in the top rack of the dishwasher.

To clean the base or motor part, all you need is a damp cloth to wipe it down and remove stains. If done right after use the stains shouldn't resist. If they do, a baking soda paste should do the job, or a bit of soap wiped on the stain and removed with the cloth or a damp paper towel.

After all the parts are clean and dry you can reassemble the machine and store it away. Make sure that all the parts are throughly dried to prevent bacteria growth or damage.

So what if your processor/chopper/dicer is smelly?
An easy solution for a smelly machine is to mix baking soda and water at a 1 to 1 ratio and leave it in the bowl of the machine for 10-15 minutes. This will absorb odors and leave your machine smelling clean again.

Ken more washer leaves dirty marks on clothes


Pull the agitator out and clean the inside of it and the area of the tub that it covers. A buildup of crud won't be removed by simply washing out the machine. Rinsing out a frying pan will get a lot of the dirt out but, it must be properly washed to get it all.

Candy CDB 854: Just installed, spin tested briefly. Now just lights and no function.


Turn the power back on, go through the instruction book to start the machine up. If its still not right, call the Service Agent. Its brand new and will be covered by warranty.

White XL1760 cant find the setting for the straight stitch.....a, b, c????


You can download a manual for your White machine from the Singer website, link is
http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1111_white-1760-xl-x.pdf

Here are the relevant pages from the manual:

tally_girl_51.jpg
tally_girl_52.jpg
Straight stitch settings as follows:
stitch length on 2.5 (selector marked with blue arrow)
stitch width on zero (no swinging of the needle) selector marked with red arrow
stitch selector on A - selector marked with green arrow

Generally all sewing machines will have a similar three controls, because all stitches are a combination of moving the fabric forward a certain amount between the needle going through the fabric - the stitch length; and moving the needle from side to side - the stitch width.

And then a stitch selector for different stitch forms such as a blind hem or shell stitch where the needle is going through a series of different moves in sequence to form a special stitch. You still have the width and length controls to vary this formation.

For general sewing machine information www.sewing.about.com is excellent, there is lots of pages on general tips, cleaning, threading up and sewing machine know how. Try this page to start http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/ig/Sewing-Machines.--9k/

If you are a beginner, then I'd recommend printing out the instruction manual for your machine and putting into a binder, placing beside the machine, and carefully read from the beginning going through all the instructions to wind a bobbin, thread up, three or four times until you can do it without reading the manual, then practice stitching out each of the stitches your machine does. Buy a cheap exercise book and on each page, write the name of the stitch, staple the stitch sample in and either write down the settings used or glue in a photo taken of the machine controls you used. This way you can quickly flick through and refer to your settings next time. ADjusting the top tension dial will also adjust the stitch formation so read the manual and set the tension dial to the setting it suggests but sometimes you'll need to adjust it slightly to get the stitch looking even (balanced between top and bottom thread), especially for zigzags.

Practice a bit and you'll soon feel much more confident using the machine. Also, refer to the cleaning and oiling instructions and do it regularly, along with changing the needle for each new sewing project, about 4-6 hours sewing time. The needle is the most important part of a sewing machine, always use the right sized needle for the fabric. Refer here for info http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/ig/Sewing-Machine-Needles/

I hope this helps you with your White sewing machine, there are lots of great sewing machine books on the market too or in your public library to refer to. Also taking beginner sewing classes will really help you learn how best to use your machine. I've been sewing for over 38 years but still enjoy going to a class and learning a new technique from another enthusiast - life long learner!!

Are all material parts machine washable?


Good question! "No" is the simple answer, but washing is easy nonetheless. Here is some more detailed, general advice about washing:

The fabric parts should not be machine washed. Instead they should be hand washed and do remember to use a mild liquid detergent, preferably a non-biological one, or mild soapflakes. Never scrub fabrics with abrasive material or strong detergent.
Always dry the seat naturally; i.e. on the washing line please note that some fabrics, especially navies, are prone to colour loss if abrasion is used during cleaning. You are recommended not to rub localized marking. Refer to the product instructions for washing method. Colour loss can also be caused by sunlight. Do not leave your product in direct sunlight unnecessarily. Never use a tumble dryer or try to dry in front of a fire, as the high temperature may cause damage to the seat.
Reinforced parts such as hoods can be soaked, rinsed well and dried, as per the seat. The carrycot can be sponged clean with mild soapflakes and excess water removed with a dry cloth. Allow to dry naturally.

What do i use to wash my car seat cover


I used a liquid washing tablet and did it on a cool wash in the washing machine. I found if I used washing powder it left white marks. Also, make sure you won't need it in a hurry as really you need to leave it to dry for about 48hrs.

Smell in LG LDF8812ST


First, scrape your dishes clear of food before putting them in.  Rotten food makes smells.  Second, use a good brand of detergent in the recommended amount and use the heating cycle to heat the water up.  
Most dish washers have a dryer heat cycle but this one apparently does not.  This may cause mold in the machine.  
How to get rid of the smell:  With no dishes in the machine, add half a cup of bleach in the bottom of the unit and do a full wash cycle.  If the unit still has an odor, get some baking soda...about a half cup and put that in the bottom of the machine.  Close the door and leave overnight.  Then, run the machine through one wet cycle...say a wash cycle and then it should stop smelling.
Hint:  When leaving dishes in the machine between uses, leave the door ajar...do not close tightly.
