  • When I dry my clothes it takes a long time. If I am drying shirts, jeans, and towels would using heavy duty would that help?

    Best answer: Different dryers are different, I currently have an older dryer that takes a rather long time.

    Be sure your lint trap is cleaned with each load and that the venting system is not obstructed. Having a full lint trap or obstructed vent will cause the dryer to take longer and also be a fire hazard.

    You may also be trying to dry too much at one time. Try drying smaller loads.

  • Is it hard to install a gas and water hookup for a laundry unit?

    Best answer: Gas is not DIY.   So toss that idea out of your head. And I AM handy.  However and electric hookup is the way to go. Again you need an electrician to see if a 240V run can be put in from the breaker box.  Then again too, you kind of need to know the dryer you are getting.  I have a 120V dryer (which as far as I know does not heat worth a dam) so I got to take apart and see why. It should put out some heat.
    It is a small apartment size stackable unit. for a closet.  So you kind of got to know what will fit in there .  Dryers are fairly large and washers same size...so how big is closet?Might be cheaper to turn closet space into an elevator so she can ride down?  That too is possible and you need the electrician.

  • Is there a rule of thumb as to when to replace a dryer, washing machine or a major appliance.?

    Best answer: Not really. When it breaks and the cost of the repair doesn't justify repairing an aging appliance is when most people would do it. I have a 6 year old fridge that would cost me about $700 to replace with a new one. At this point, halfway or more through its expected lifespan, it wouldn't be worth spending more than $350 to fix it. I'll probably buy a new one sometime after 10 years, even if the old one still works, checking for a sale price. The inconvenience of having a non-working fridge is worth buying one ahead of a breakdown. Fridges are a little different from many appliances. They're always on in any household. A washing machine, though, might wear out in 5 years if it's doing the laundry of 8 people but last 20 years if only one person uses it.  And if you don't have a washing machine for a few days while you arrange to get a new one, it's not such a big deal as a fridge breaking down, maybe when it's 80F in July.

  • I have a tenant that destroyed my house and the security deposit is not sufficient to cover the loss. What can I do ?

    Tenant left the house in a mess. Required cleaning to be done. The walls required new coating as well. Air condition was left running, which i forfeit the deposit he paid for utility. That is enough to cover. The door knobs were remove. Apparently , the key was lost and they had to 'chopped' it out. However, they did not have the money to replace a new one. The also sabotaged the toilet bowls by filling it with concrete. This is a nightmare. If i get a lawyer and filed a civil suit, it would be costly as well. What can i do to recover the loss ? (apart from forfeiting all the deposit, in total 3 months)

  • Roommate is dirty and smells of feet all of the time, how do I approach this?

    I'm 16 (still living with my mother), and I'm very close to graduating so I'll be able to go off to university soon, but I have a serious problem. My mom has generously allowed one of her friend's daughters to live with us, but she has to share my room. She's nearly 15. This wouldn't be a problem if she didn't stink and could clean up behind herself. I find myself being the "housewife" of the room--I clean up after her every move. Stinky shoes? I move them. Messy closet? I reorganize it. HER trash everywhere? I throw it away. The part where it's the worst is her smell. We have a carpet, so it always smells of stinky feet in the room. ALWAYS. Even when she's off to school or out somewhere. Kid you not, she can get right out of the shower, and her feet will smell like whatever body wash and athlete's foot, but she swears she doesn't have an infection. It's gotten to the point where MY CLOTHES are starting to smell like it, and people notice. I know it's not from me, my room has NEVER smelled like that. I've told her about it, I've told my mom about it, I've vacuumed and cleaned the carpet as well as cleaned all of the clothes and bed sheets, I've plugged in multiple air fresheners, and I still can't go in my room unless I'm sleeping with the cover over my head. I can't even stand being around her anywhere anymore. The sight of her angers me now. I'm thinking about just moving in with a college roommate prematurely because I seriously can't handle this anymore. What can I do?

  • Oven cleaner on a electric oven?

    I have to move out of the place I am renting and want to clean the oven. I got some cheap oven cleaner at wal mart. It says to spray in oven and wait 6 hours and wipe out. Ok I get that I also read where vinager and dawn dish soap will clean it. Going with the oven cleaner snice I all ready payed for it. But I never used this stuff on a electric oven before just gas ones. Can I use it? Will it mess up any thing. I am going to spray the crap out of the inside of the oven wait like 6 to 7 hours and wipe it all down with a wet rag once or twice. Any input will be helpful.
