Hi, This is indeed a serious problem. Unfortunately you can not use any cleaning liquids inside the smoker. You should contact the manufacturer to see if they will sell you a just the main part of the smoker. The shelves, heating element water pan etc can be cleaned with liquid cleaner. Hank

How to Clean and Disinfect your Keyboard and Mouse

Recent studies have shown that your average desktop Keyboard and Mouse have about 400 times more germs than the average toilet seat and are one of the most germ infected objects in the household.

This is understandable as you are probably touching it after you went to the loo , after you had your lunch , shaked someone's hand , touched a not to clean door handle to get in the room and then there is of coarse always the few drops of coffee and some cigarette ash in there if you smoke.

This combined with little hard to reach places and a relatively light free environment makes an ideal breading ground for germs.

For more info , see this article on the BBC web page. Click Here

So now , we need to clean our keyboards on a regular basis. My keyboard gets a lot of mileage so I have to clean it on a regular basis and learned a few tricks in the process which I will share in this tip.

This tip is only applicable to Desktop or freestanding keyboards and mice. Do not do this on your laptop.

Okay , so there are basically 3 steps.

#1 Clean off Dust and other solid objects.
#2 Clean off stains and other stubborn dirt
#3 Disinfect

You will need
  1. Vacuum Cleaner (not mandatory but recommended)
  2. Compressed air can
  3. Liquid alcohol based disinfectant in spray bottle
  4. Cotton swabs / Q-tips
  5. A clean microfiber cloth

#1 Clean off Dust and other solid objects.

To do this , go out and buy a can of compressed air from your local department store or electronics dealer. Get someone to hold the vacuum cleaner near to where you are working and start blowing compressed air in between the keys of your keyboard.


The vacuum will catch most of the debris and make for easier cleanup afterward if your keyboard hasn't gotten attention in a while.

#2 Clean off stains and other stubborn dirt

Now , dip a q-tip in some of your alcohol disinfectant and rub it between your keys to clean the sides of every key.


Then , take your cloth and dampen a small area with some disinfectant or water and clean the top of the keys and the larger areas between keys. Do the same for your mouse.

#3 Disinfect

Now , use your compressed air at a reasonable distance from your keyboard and while spraying air , spray some disinfectant into the airstream and onto your keyboard. This will ensure that even the spaces between keys are disinfected. Now simply wipe off excess disinfectant from the top of the keyboard with the dry end of your cloth.

Also use some disinfectant on your cloth to wipe down your mouse.

And there you go , one germ free clean keyboard and mouse.

Please remember to rate this tip if you found it useful.

Help. I shut down my refrigerator when I moved. When I opened the door, I found the refrigerator full of maggots. I used clorox to clean it but I heard there could be eggs that I could not reach. Is...

Maggots are the larvae that have hatched from insect eggs. Yes, there might be eggs somewhere still in your refrigerator. I would suggest that you locate an insecticide (a bomb type perhaps) and set it off in your refrigerator BUT UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR FIRST. Close the doors and let the refrigerator stand for a week. After that time, you will need to carefully wipe down all surfaces with a mild soap solutions. Then rinse well. If there are still lingering odors you can wipe again with baking soda solution or you can place activated charcoal in the refrigerator to absorb the pesticide odor. I had this same thing happen in a foods lab with a microwave oven. I used this procedure and never had maggots again. You don't have to be a dirty person to have problems like these! I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

GE side x side (model # GSH25JS) was in a house that i moved into... it was unplugged a full of rotten food and maggots. (Yes, it was horrific!) Anyway got it all emptied, scrubbed and disinfected. ...

Check the wiring for loose connection of parts including the temperature control, defrost button or timer, the relay and anything. Also check for leak in the tubing. Since you moved from different places maybe far, it's possible that bumps, bouncing the pressure inside system tube might occurred.
I hope my ideas help you.

Mice have inhabited our barbecue grill.

Put our some rodenticide and get rid of them before they over populate and get inside of your home. Mice do NOT do well when relocated to other areas. Get rid of them and sanitize the grill with disinfectant or bleach.
