Strange yellowish circle appearing on white shirts

i believe the stains are actually semi burn marks. If you are drying your whites try a lower heat setting. i had this problem with my kenmore dryer before too. Got bad especially with towels. Make sure your vent is not clogged and your filter is cleaned regularly to let the heat flow better. should help.

How I Rid Myself of Stretch Marks

I had a problem with stretch marks as most women do. Most of them were spread over my abdomen, but I also developed some on my buttocks, upper arms, and thighs.

The doctors said it was due to the type of skin I have. Usually, stretch marks are caused by pregnancy, physical changes, stress, rapid growth, losing or gaining weight, and also, like in my case, heredity factors.

Home Remedy Tips for Stretch Marks

Castor oil

Generally, this treatment helps various problems of the skin, like pimples, fine lines, dark spots, moles, age spots, wrinkles, as well as stretch marks.

Apply the oil to the area with stretch marks, massage it gently between five and ten minutes using circular motions. Wrap it with a cotton cloth that is thin, and use a heating pad or hot water bottle for heating this area, wait about thirty minutes. This process should be repeated every day for at least a month, to see some results.

Egg whites

Due to its protein source that is very rich, it will be good to use the whites-only as they contain some amino acids.

Whip 2 egg whites gently. Clean the area of your skin prior to applying the egg whites in a thickish layer. Use a small makeup brush. Leave the whites to completely dry, after which you rinse with some cold water. Follow this with olive oil to keep the skin moisturized. This process should be repeated every day for about 2 weeks to get a positive result.

Some lemon juice

Lemon juice is another way that is simple to use. Due to its natural acidic contents, it can reduce different scars, stretch marks, and acne.

Rub the fresh juice gently and in circular motions on the stretch marks. Allow it to properly soak for about ten minutes then rinse with water that is warm. You can also add half-half cucumber and lemon juice.

Juice from a potato

This juice contains minerals and vitamins which will help with restoration and growth of skin cells.

Use slices that are thick. Gently rub your stretch marks with a potato slice ensuring that the potato's starch covers the area that is affected. Allow time for it to dry properly before washing it off with lukewarm water.

Although its natural remedies, it's important to remember that sometimes it may irritate your skin, especially if you use a bigger amount of the ingredients. Carefully follow these instructions to avoid causing different problems of the skin.

White smoke coming from tail pipe on 2001 ford expedition

You are not going to like this answer. Your engine is burning oil. In all likelihood, you have one or more burned out piston rings, which is allowing oil to get into the combustion chamber. Snce you are burning oil, it is going to eventually foul your spark plugs and reduce performance significantly over time. You will also need to check the oil more frequently to try to avoid running dry and seizing the engine.

At a minimum, you are going to need a ring job. The most common cause of this is going way too long between oil changes, especially on a high mileage vehicle; it is also one of the most avoidable vehicle malfunctions.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

My clothes are leaving the dryer with streaks (maybe 4 or 5 inches long) that appear to be burn marks. Closer inspection of the inside of the drum shows that the back "wall" of the drum is off-center...

I have the same problem and read somewhere to replace the felt belts. We have done this twice and still getting the brown marks. I have found using Goo Gone and/or Dawn dish soap and scrubbing with a brush will take most of the mark out, re-wash and HANG to dry. I'm still looking for a permanent solution to this problem, as much as these dryer cost and you can't dry white clothes???

My kenmore Electri Dryer is humming while drying.

Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.hope this help you out sincerely D.Jones

Dryer is leaving brown streaks on cotton clothes

To all victims of the brownish colored streak marks: I share your frustration!!! I have the same problem with my dryer which started when my dryer was only 3 or 4 years old - - totally unacceptable for an expensive top of the line dryer! A repair guy showed me how the brownish streak marks come from the felt liner which goes around the drum. Look inside your dryer for the beige or tan colored felt which sticks out around the circular drum. If you rub the felt with an old white t-shirt or paper towel, you will see the same brownish colored marks. My repairman recommended getting the felt replaced eventually, but until then, he gave me the following tips which really help avoid getting the streaks: For white or light colored clothes susceptible to the brownish streak marks: I dry these items as part of a very lightweight dryer load - with just a few other lightweight items. By doing a small lightweight load, clothing is less likely to get caught up & rub against the felt edges. For example, I dry 4 light colored men's dress shirts with 2 or 3 other lightweight shirts. OR for white or light colored athletic "dry fit" type athletic apparel, I dry 6 - 8 total lightweight shirts/shorts. If I throw my white Nike top or white pair of summer pants into the dryer with all my "whites", they will be doomed to getting brownish streaks due to the heavy load pushing them against the darned felt liner! Whenever possible, I wash susceptible items on permanent press to avoid wrinkling, then hang dry. Prior to putting these clothes in the dryer, I also "pre-clean" the felt with an old white cotton t-shirt by reaching into the dryer and rubbing along the felt edges until I'm not getting as much brownish color on the t-shirt rag. For a permanent fix, call a repairman or see the following do-it-yourself YouTube video on "Dryer Repair - Replacing the Lower Front Drum Felt Seal": . I have a repair person coming today to fix 2 other appliances, so I'm finally getting my dryer fixed, and I will post an update soon.
