  • Mix in a bucket concrete?

    I have a few very small repairs that I would like to do to the brick wall in my garden. To make concrete do I need a concrete mixer or are there any brands that I can mix by hand?

  • My boyfriend is really into the color pink. Is he gay?

    My boyfriend and I recently moved into a house together. I let him chose the color of our bedroom, he insisted on pink... ALL pink. I love pink but it's not like he's doing this for my benefit. I even questioned him on it, he was very very insitent. I'm starting to think he might be gay or bisexual.... show more

  • What does this front yard need?

    What does this front yard need?

    Best answer: UGH! 1) Remove the tire. It is useless. 2) Remove that old set of concrete steps and build steps and a new porch if possible, but make each step 4-feet long by 14-inches wide in redwood or pressure-treated wood. Remove the concrete single-wide path from the sidewalk and widen the path to 4-feet wide, wide enough... show more
    Best answer: UGH! 1) Remove the tire. It is useless. 2) Remove that old set of concrete steps and build steps and a new porch if possible, but make each step 4-feet long by 14-inches wide in redwood or pressure-treated wood. Remove the concrete single-wide path from the sidewalk and widen the path to 4-feet wide, wide enough for 2 people to be side-by-side. 3) Remove all that grass and dig in better soil amendment and topsoil. Plant along the foundation there some short "mounding" shrubs, such as easy care boxwood, glossy abelia, or if you are not allergic, salvia (related to sage) plants. Get about 5 plants to plant along the porch. In front of those plants, get some very low-growing, low maintenance ground cover such as phlox. You will need about 20 small phlox starts planted in 2 rows of 10 about 10-inches apart. 4) Do line or "outline" the space with a plastic weed barrier edging right along at the edge of the sidewalk and around the new walk and steps to reduce weeds from growing along the edges there. -------------- That's about all I can offer at the moment. I would draw a picture but ANswers is difficult about uploading photos.

  • If I need to break a window, would covering it up with a curtain prevent me from doing so?

    I need to break an old window glass out of its frame. To avoid getting injured, I'm thinking of placing a curtain or towel over it, then smack it with a hammer. Would the curtain/towel get int he way of the hammer, preventing me from being able to break the window by softening the blows?

  • How do you avoid hitting pipes when drilling into drywall?

    I want to hang a towel rack in my bathroom. I want to hang it above the toilet. I have a magnetic stud finder I don't trust. It is attracted to the entire wall behind the toilet. Does that mean there are pipes there? How do I avoid hitting pipes and/or anything electrical?

    Please don't judge for what I am about to explain. Ok well maybe you can judge but at least still answer please. I am coming from a really rough spot in my life and I have many, many bags of clothes from my previous apartment that are extremely dirty. I had an unfixed male cat that sprayed on them and the little bugger wasn't litter trained properly either so the clothes got really messed up and not only that but I'm an outdoorsy person and like to work on motors etc so my clothes naturally stink really bad after a while. Anyway, these clothes never got washed due to me being poor but now I'm in a better position in life and I want to wash some of them and throw away the really, really bad ones. The last time I tried to wash some it left a smell in the washer that wouldn't come out for a while. How to avoid the smell and how to get rid of it from washing machines? Any advice? I know the best solution would be to chuck all of them but I honestly can't afford more clothes and I'm sick of having nothing to wear as it is. Some clothes proved to be saveable so I'm going to try.
