Air Drying Laundry, Is This Ok to Do?

Warming it over fire is very very very risky. Especially if you have a nylon or plastic type material. It's better to just hang it and wait. ..but the material will get really crunchy. It will have wrinkles depending on the wind. I personally can not stand how crispy it gets, especially the towels. But drying it anywhere close to a flame is a terrible terrible idea even if you pull up a chair and watch it dry. If you are in a hurry, iron it.

1. Is air drying or blow drying better for your hair?

blow drying causes heat damage so i guess air drying is better

2. Drying wet clothes without dryer?

Hang them on a line, gather all your friends and start blowing!

3. How do I prevent my cake from drying up?

Saran wrap the whole thing very well, several layers. Store in fridge, or better in the freezer. Then day of just take it out, unwrap and serve.

4. Can blow drying your clothes make em dry faster?

Blowing your dress can make your stuff dry in easily but just make sure that you have the maximum amt of air

5. grout drying as 2 different colors?

sometimes grout can take longer to dry. there's no clear reason as to why it's light in spots and dark in others. it could be moisture in the concrete slab, the way it was mixed (some batches being dryer than the other, etc) humid weather or rainy weather, or just simply a bad batch of grout. i've had a couple jobs over the years where it took 3 months for the grout to fully turn the correct color. it sucks but it can happen. do not seal the grout yet. sealer will lock in whatever moisture is causing the splotchiness, and it will take even longer to dry, since the only way to go is down. my advice is to just give it time. if it has not changed in a month, month and a half, use a grout removing tool (available at the hardware store) and remove the grout that has not turned lighter and regrout it. worse case scenario--call a tile installer. save the bag of grout you have left too. good luck.

6. How can I prevent stiffness in towels when line drying?

softner, i always tumble dry them tho. 1 its always raining. 2, they are alot softer

7. Tattoo keeps drying out, even after lotion?

Petroleum jelly is the worst to use for new tattoos. Use A&D ointment. It keeps it moist for a few hours

8. how can i stop drying of my lips?

dont wet your lips often as the saliva is a digestive juice and it can harm your skin. as it is summer, you feel much irritated. so you can use sebamed lipbalm- it is a little expensive but you can see the results if used often. or you can go for olive oil or butter which soothes the lips. Do not use lipstick or any other lip makeup.... hope i helped : )

9. Does towel drying your hair damage it?

Yes,it does damges it it makes it less bright and colorless

10. How do I stop my milk from drying up?

You have to keep expressing otherwise it will dry up. Thats what happens when you decide to stop feeding, of course it will dry up

11. dryer isn't drying found lint outside?

I never heard of the lint being outside before, but I am wondering if maybe a bird has built it's nest in the vent. Not unheard of, it happened to a neighbor of mine, but the nest was just inside where the vent goes out, so she found it easily. You might try reaching in a little further to see what else you might find.

12. For girls: Do you prefer blow drying or flat ironing?

i do neither, i just brush it out, style it and let it air dry through the day

13. Clothes smell sour even after washing and drying well?

i found that the clothes that smelled were the ones i put on after a shower i think the problem was the statins i was taking

14. EMERGENCY! Help with Blow-drying hair straight!?

I would try wetting it some and then blow drying it straight again. I have a chi flat iron and i would definitely recommend getting one. It costs alot but it's a very good investment.

“You’d be amazed at what people walk around with,” said Serena Merrill.Ms. Merrill should know. Since 2008, she has been a foot care nurse for the elderly in and around West Stockbridge, Mass., and she has seen feet with every kind of problem you can imagine — and quite a few you’d probably rather not. For example: “A lot of men who were in World War II have had fungal nails since the 1940s from the trenches.”Since the 1940s? “Fungus is hard to get rid of,” Ms. Merrill said. Many older women also have this persistent condition, which renders nails yellow or even black, thick and misshapen, and tough to cut. But that’s hardly the only foot problem the elderly may experience: There are the corns, calluses, bunions and twisted toes, too, not to mention the damage caused by years of wearing too-pointy, too-tight, too-high heels. For the elderly especially, the feet can be one of the most neglected and abused parts of the body; simply clipping the nails can be impossible. “When you get old, your eyesight is not as good and you can’t bend down very easily, so you can poke yourself with the scissors,” said Dorothy Elsberg, 90, a former violinist for the Women’s Boston Symphony in Lenox, Mass.That can be hazardous for older patients, especially for those with diabetes. A slip of the clippers can lead to an infection that they may not notice until there’s serious damage. Surprisingly, nurses often can’t help with this caregiving task — they are not allowed to clip patients’ nails in medical facilities. Only in the past six years has there been a certification for nurses specializing in foot care. So every six weeks or so, Ms. Elsberg gets her toenails clipped by Ms. Merrill, who charges $45 for the house call. Elderly patients often are embarrassed by their feet, Ms. Merrill has found. “They’re ashamed,” she said. “They worry their feet are stinky or weird-looking.” And so they put off foot care until the problem becomes pressing. “People come to me with ingrown toenails or corns so painful they can’t walk any more,” she said. Handling people’s feet — cutting and filing nails, inspecting and healing every bump and rough patch, rubbing on lotion and massaging them — certainly sounds like one of caregiving’s less pleasant tasks. But the foot care ritual can also bring deep connections. “It’s sort of like being at the hairdresser for them – it’s amazing what will come out,” Ms. Merrill said. “Men will tell me their war stories and say, ‘Gee, I haven’t talked to anybody about this in years.'”One 85-year-old woman told Ms. Merrill about her husband, who went off to World War II with a major-league baseball career lined up, but lost a leg and came back to nothing. “She still got all teared up even though he died 20 years ago,” Ms. Merrill recalled.“When you get a smile and they walk away on top of the world, that’s pretty great,” Ms. Merrill added. “You don’t get that too much in nursing nowadays.” Marge Piercy, an award-winning poet and novelist, alludes to the emotional power that touching feet can evoke in “The Tao of Touch.” It’s a story Ms. Piercy heard from her own foot care nurse, and possibly the only poem in the English language to mention this profession (if you know of another, please tell us): What magic does touch createthat we crave it so. That babiesdo not thrive without it.
