A few days is nowhere near enough. If you've tried to turn it on, the circuits are probably fried. The soapy water would definitely leave a film over everything including the inside of the lens elements. You should have buried the camera in a bowl of dry rice for a couple of weeks before even attempting to turn it on. Even then, the chance of a complete recovery would be less than .00000000000000001%!!! At least we learn from our mistakes.

Does boiling water kill bed bugs


If you mean by washing then yes, if you mean by simply spraying then not really......it needs to be a constant stream of hot water, the best method is steam.....you can hire or buy these for a reasonable price:

Bag and launder (122°F/50?C minimum) affected items. Smaller items that cannot be laundered can sometimes be de-infested by heating. Individual items, for example, can be wrapped in plastic and placed in a hot, sunny location for at least a few days (the 122°F/50?C minimum target temperature should be monitored in the center-most location with a thermometer). Bedbugs also succumb to cold temperatures below freezing, but the chilling period must be maintained for at least two weeks. Attempts to rid an entire home or apartment of bed bugs by raising or lowering the thermostat will be entirely unsuccessful.
  • Wash all linen on hot, dry on hot setting. Gather all linen, cloth and leather bags, mattress covers, clothing, teddy bears... etc. Machine wash on hot - wash the laundry bag also. Tumble dry on hot. Steam kills bed bugs. Some metropolitan areas offer bed bug laundry and dry cleaning services which have the added benefits of proven methods for killing bed bugs and bagging or storing cleaned items so they do not become re-infested while the home is still being exterminated.
  • If something cannot be washed or discarded (such as a valuable leather purse) spray with non-toxic bed bug spray (such as diatomaceous earth), seal in a plastic bag and leave for a few months.
  • Dry clean to remove odor if need be.

My towels smell and I have to rinse at least two additional times. Have changed detergents always using HD, use more, use less, stopped using liquid softner.


Run a load of whites (or with no clothes) with bleach to kill any mildew or bacteria build-up in the washer. If you have your own well, install an anti-bacterial and odor removal filter in the water line.

The first time you wash towels after doing this, pre-soak the towels in water with a "color-safe" bleach to get any little stinkers hiding in them. Also, disinfect your towel storage and any place where they are hung after use, and after that make sure the towels are dried out before they are thrown into the laundry basket unless they are going to the washing machine immediately.

Moldy gasket


It because the mildew is not just on the gasket, but it is in the tub and in the pump and discharge hose as well. You need to reduce/eliminate the mildew in those parts. There is a couple of things you should do to reduce the causes of mildew.

1. Run the machine once a month using hot water and two cups of vinegar to clean out the machine. You might need to repeat this a few times to completely clean out your machine.

2. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the about and type of laundry detergent to use with your wash. Using too much detergent causes a build up of detergent on the tub which encourages mildew growth.

3. After your final wash of the day, leave the door and laundry detergent open, wipe dry the gasket with a cloth.

4. If the above steps does not help, try a commercial product like Affresh.

Hope this helps you.

The twin tub connected to the washing machine doesn't drain.


The laundry tub does not have adequate drain size to handle discharge from the washing machine. In addition, the kitchen and laundry area piping may not be correctly vented.

Softner remaining in drawer after wash, then laundry is full of static after drying.


Try to do a cleaning wash without any washing. Add 5ltr of any brand of washing bleach and program a normal wash cycle. This will clean out the system and may solve your problem. It is a good idea to do this every few months as a routine.

Smelly washer


The disgusting smell is from using too much detergent, using softener or from using only cold water for washing.

The area of buildup is just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water splash up and don't get rinsed out. To clean this area: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ua6OJPn0-fU

The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the "splash area" intermittent pausing to soak is also a good tip in extreme cases.
