My wife was and still is, a Homemaker, While raising eight children she kept a neat house. If I left a teacup in the sink, the next time I walked by that cup, now clean, would be in the drying rack. The children are all grown, but today se vacuumed all the carpets, even in the rooms that are not used. Some people are like that. Your friends are slobs and nothing will change them. Either put up with it or move them out.

    Best answer: 0. Don't panic.
    1. Run your clothes through the dryer for 30 minutes.
    2. Buy bedbug mattress covers for your matress and box springs ASAP. They sell them on amazon buy them right away!
    3. Pull your bed away from the wall so it's free standing in your room.
    4. Remove anything from under your bed so the only way to get onto your bed is the FEET OF YOUR BED, not the wall, not some pillow under the bed that's touching the box spring, NOTHING.
    5. Look for bed bug signs under your box spring and mattress on the seams.
    6. Look for brown smears like a magic marker on your pillows and blankets.
    7. If you find bed bugs in a room KEEP SLEEPING IN THAT ROOM. Biggest mistake is to sleep in a different room you will spread them that way.
    8. Run every single thing on your bed including pillows and blankets through the dryer once per week for 30 minutes.
    9. Buy some (cheap) food grade DE and 4 plastic bowls. Fill the bowls with DE and put the feet of your bed in the bowls.
    10. Between the DE and the Free standing Bed, and the mattress and boxspring covers (critical) that should make you very resistant to an infestation.


    Bed bugs need to eat and they need to sleep So you want to make your bed inhospitable to them sleeping (mattress covers and running bedding through dryer), and make it so that if they do find a safe place to sleep that they can't get to their meal at night (limit access from the floor/walls to your bed with the DE Barrier).

    If you do get an infestation forget chemicals and choose a heat solution (Where the exterminator installs a heater in your room and runs it for 36 hours). Should cost between 200 and 400 per day to rent the heaters. THEY WORK.

  • How to remove child poop smell from microfiber couch?

    Basically my daughter pooped and it bled through her clothes and before I could notice it she sat on the couch in a small area. I used baby wipes but the smell is still there. Is there a way to get the smell out or will it fade on it’s own.

    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.

    Ok, soooooo Pretty hot here in England today so i put out and air cooler fan on my bed while i sat at my computer. I didn't realise the air cooler had leaked and soaked a patch through my duvet, right through my mattress and even through an extra 1 inch memory foam topper i have under the mattress. The water was clean fresh water and my mattress hasn't got much to it really. It's one of those lightweight Silent Night Miracoil ones with a thin topping, 1 inch memory foam underneath and some thin felt. Its one sided and the bottom of it has nothing more than a very thin piece of foam with tiny air holes, its mostly springs. Very comfy though. =) Anyway, i soaked up as much of the water as i could and as its like an oven in my bedroom and there isn't much to the mattress it seems to be drying off in just a few hours. No stains, no smell. I'm now just worried about mold and being like deaded and stuff. =)
