  • Where does a small grocery store get off selling a stuffed pepper for 6.99?

    Best answer: They get off in the back room......but what does that have to do with the Peppers?
    The price is as marked. Many will pass it by and a few will buy. If the buying crowd out demands the supply, then they are selling them for cheap. So they can up the prices...so demand is Less(BUT not totally gone). It is a balancing act - the store charges what they believe the market will pay (and wait and see what happens)
    .They either sell it, or it ROTS ON THE STORE SHELF and they have to toss it out as a lost sale.
    . That is how "EVERYTHING" IS SOLD (from gasoline to Condoms)
    How much is too much?

  • Killing fleas in car?

    Best answer: You buy flea powder for cats and dogs and sprinkle it in the upholstery and also carpet, wait a bit, and then vacuum the car. That's not the only way though. At Walmart, they have plenty of flea killing products. There is a an aerosol can for killing fleas. It should be in the pet section. Decades ago, flea powder was about all they had to kill fleas. They would rub it into pets' fur. And, also treat the cat bed and couch, etc....

  • Should I wash my white dress shirts in hot or cold water ?

    I ask because if I wash them in hot water first the stains will sit in.  I wash them in cold water not all the stains be removed.  I end up washing them twice.  The first time I use cold water then the second time I use hot water.  I am using a public laundromat that gets very expensive using soap and quarters for a cold and hot washing.  I need ideas or solutions on how to do washing on White dress shirts the first time and getting all the stains out.

  • Can I bleach towels?

    I have a bunch of nice (expensive) body, hand, and face towels from Restoration Hardware.  They are white (not off-white, just plain white).  They are a couple years old and starting to lose their bright-whiteness.  The tags say not to bleach them, but they are the standard tags on all their towels regardless of color.  Is there any problem with bleaching them to bring back their original color?  And if so, any recommendations on how to do it?  I'm trying not to destroy the towels.  Thanks so much!
