Lawn Mower Repair Maintenance

Keeping your home clean and sparkly is not the easiest task. Keeping your appliances and the things that can’t be seen in a perfect condition is even harder. Even if you are prepared for the upcoming season and you’ve already cleaned and checked most parts of your home, there’s still plenty to do. You’ll be surprised.

In order to do it all, you’d better have a calendar(write the notes on your computer or just make a list). A big house takes a lot of time to clean and maintain. 

But do not be scared. Most of these things you can pretty much do on your own. If you don’t have experience in a certain area and you don’t want to risk breaking something, call a professional handyman company to help you. 

 

1. Every month

- The fire extinguisher - in order to know if you can be safe if there is a fire, make sure to know if you need a new one. This is a really easy task see if the gauge shows the proper pressure and if there are visible leaks and tears. Another thing that you might find a bit silly but is very important - know where you keep it and leave that area open and with easy access to it.

- The kitchen sink disposal - if you need it to work properly then you need to take regular care. The easiest way to clean the disposal is to fill an ice tray with vinegar and let it freeze. Then run it through this appliance - it will freshen it and will also sharpen the blades.

- The HVAC filters - it is recommended to change the filters every month. It is pretty much up to you and your family - do you have small children? Dogs or cats? If you do, then it’s best to change them every month. Still, if they are not that dirty, inspect them the next month.

2. Every quarter

- The smoke detectors - it is really easy to check if they work - they usually have a “test” button. If the alarm goes off, then you’ve nothing to worry about. If it doesn’t then just change the batteries or clean the battery terminal. If it still doesn’t work then you need to buy new smoke detectors.

- The guest bathrooms - if you have a guest house or a guest room, then maybe you don’t use them as often as you use your bathroom. From time to time, go and flush the toilet and let the water run for a while. This will prevent any buildup and grime.

- The garage door - to prevent any accidents, you need to test the auto-reverse from time to time. Place a 2x4 piece of wood exactly where the door would close. It should automatically go back up a second or so after the door touches the wood.

3. Every six months

- Deep cleaning - I don’t mean just the vacuum and the curtains. Take the time to clean every part of the house perfectly. Go into the basement and up in the attic. You can also make your family participate and you’ll be done in no time.

- The refrigerator coils - it's good to clean them every six months. And do not worry - it’s not a difficult task. Just use the vacuum. The cleaner they are the less energy the fridge will use in order to cool off the food inside. So you’ll both have a cleaner appliance and a lower electrical bill.

- The water heater - you need to check the pressure relief valve. This prevents from corrosion and any other type of buildup and protects against leaks. It also helps the water heater run more efficiently.

In the spring

- Clean the gutters from leaves and other things that have buildup there through the winter and the autumn.

- Check the aesthetic look of your home - maybe your exterior paint is peeling? Are there any holes in the bricks? Take the time to observe the condition of your house and fix the problems.

- Check to see if any tree branches are touching electrical lines. Do we even need to explain why?   

- Go up to the roof and see if there are any broken tiles and holes. And fix them as soon as possible. You don’t want those summer rains to ruin your attic.

In the summer

- Go around the house and check the plumbing for leaks.  

- See if the patio needs any work done - usually it just needs a good wash.

- Take care of the insects - ants, spiders, mosquitoes - spray the rooms with a solution and make sure all doors close tightly.

- Clean the dryer vent and check the exhaust - the air from it should be fresh. Also, check for blockages as much as you can.

- Go through your garage and throw out everything you don’t need. Then clean the place thoroughly and enjoy it!

In the autumn

- In order for your heating system to do its job, make sure all windows and doors have no leaks. You shouldn’t store stuff on top of the heating vents, too.

- If you have a chimney, get it cleaned for the winter.

- Observe the pavement and the driveway for any holes and cracks. Once you fix them you’ll notice the great difference it makes.

- Go to the store and buy all the equipment you’ll need for the winter. Items like shovels that will help you get through the winter easier.

In the winter

- Don’t let icicles grow because they are dangerous and can harm a person. They are also heavy and can damage your home.

- Check all locks and deadbolts and replace anything that doesn’t work. Also, tighten handles and knobs.

- Go to the basement and clean every part of it. Because most people use it as storage space they don’t take the time to throw away the clutter and clean it thoroughly.

All of these tasks are easy to do and won’t take up much of your time. Once you finish with the maintenance for the month or season you will enjoy your home knowing everything is fixed.

Garbage Disposal Service

Before you ponder over the question above, you should be aware that there is no free lunch in this world! Everything comes at a price, and someone has to pay for it. In the present age of raging consumerism, the idea of zero percent financing is often bait used to lure potential buyers, whether the concerned item is an avant-garde appliance or a fabulous piece of furniture. Though this scheme apparently seems lucrative, the consumer is indirectly charged with an interest rate which he fails to realize. After all, no business can afford to offer charity and forgo profits, right? So if you are expecting absolutely zero percent interest on business loans, then you need to brace for a bit of disappointment. Whether the lender is a bank or a non-banking financial institution, you will be charged a certain interest rate. But the good news is that, currently, rates levied on business loans are highly competitive and hence attractive.

 
More on business loans

Are you planning to expand your business, buy some new equipment or a new factory, or need to purchase raw materials? Then a business loan which is customized to suit your needs and profile is your best bet for financing your dreams. Most banks and other financial lenders structure the loan according to the borrower’s size, turnover, future financial projections and many other factors. So if you are a small business, you will be charged differently from a large entity, for the loan.

Now since more and more non-banking financial corporations are emerging to compete with banks as far as business loans are concerned, they are offering low interest rates, fast approvals, and flexible repayment tenures to make things easy for small or medium enterprises. And let’s not forget that in today’s scenario, small and medium businesses are coming together to form the backbone of the global economy. And with such loans, you can also expect other benefits like hassle-free documentation process, proactive and understanding customer service, and fair play and transparency. Moreover, if you have a good credit rating, you might not need to pledge any collateral or require a guarantor.

 

A look at very flexible loans

While we are on the topic of zero percent interest on business loans, let’s take a look at some highly flexible loans which are offered by some leading NBFCs. These loans are structured to suit the exact cash flow pattern of your business and don’t impose any pre-payment penalty. That is, you can pre-pay the loan with funds that are sitting idle with you, and not bear any interest charges for the same. Interest will be levied only on the loan amount you utilize. Up to 90% loan to value is provided against the security or collateral you offer in this case. Transactions for this loan can be executed online on the lender’s portal, and part payment charges are also often nil.

 

Good to know

Generally, for any type of business loan, you need to be self-employed, or your organization has to be public, private or a proprietorship. You should be engaged in your present business for at least 3 years and have a decent credit score. Certain terms and conditions might also be present as far as profitability and minimum annual income are concerned. You will also need to submit balance sheets, profit and loss statements, income tax return statements, trade license or registration certificates, audited financial projections, and profiles of partners and directors. But please note that eligibility criteria might vary from one lending institution to another. And finally, loan disbursal is as per the discretion of the lender. But if you have all your documents in place and your business has potential, nothing will stop you from fulfilling your dreams.

Do you snore every night? How often do you suffer from day time fatigue and sleepiness? If so, you may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. The fact is, OSA occurs in almost 10 % of the total population, but is thought to be one of those underestimated condition where a lot many people are suffering from it but don’t know about it yet. Hence, it is very important to understand sleep apnea and know about its treatment.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea or simply, sleep apnea is a condition where breathing stops while you are asleep, even though for short spells. The word apnea, in itself means without breathe or stopping in breath. Sleep Apnea occurs when the walls of the throat comes together, blocking the upper airway during sleep. Breathing continues to stop until brain record drop in oxygen or lack of breathing and sends a wakeup call. Sleeper rouses slightly, opens the upper airway, gasps and get back to the sleeping mode immediately.

This pattern can repeat itself hundreds of times in a single night leaving the person feeling sleepy and lazy in the morning.

How Heart disease and Sleep Apnea are correlated?

As we all know, our circulatory system is responsible for delivering oxygen to all parts of our body, every time a sleep apnea patient stops breathing during sleep, the amount of oxygen in the blood decreases thus hindering the oxygen supply to the body cells as well. And imagine, when the similar thing happens throughout the night, how much stress would be on your circulatory system. This further creates serious medical condition such as a congestive heart failure, stroke and other heat diseases.

Heart disease and Sleep Apnea are found to be linked with each other after researchers have deduced that sleep apnea treatments are not only good for the patients who are suffering from heart conditions but also for those who are at a higher risk of heart failure.  In general poor sleep has been linked to increased risk of heart disease. Obstructive sleep apnea has also been linked to artery damage and high blood pressure.

How to treat sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a critically serious sleeping disorder that needs immediate treatment. You may need to choose one of the following sleep apnea or sleep disorder treatments.

Lifestyle changes- If you are diagnosed to have mild sleep apnea, you can treat it by considering few lifestyle changes such as weight loss, stop smoking and alcohol consumption and avoiding bad sleeping habits like sleeping on the back (instead you can sleep on sides to improve your condition).

CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) - CPAP is the most recommended obstructive sleep apnea treatment. The machine uses a steady stream of air to keep your airway open throughout the time you sleep. A mask with a hose will be attached to this machine kept at the bedside.

Other treatments of Sleep Apnea - Apart from Lifestyle changes and CPAP, there are Oral appliance therapy wherein a device is fitted inside your mouth to prevent the airways from collapsing by holding your tongue or sliding the jaw to ease breath while you are asleep. Other options will include surgery, where the surgeon will remove extra tissues from your throat that may block the airway.

The time we spend asleep is the most relaxing and restorative time. Yet for those who suffer from sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, sleeping time can become a struggling period. Hence, it is very important to consider Sleep disorder treatment after proper diagnosis of the problem. Do mind, sleep disorder treatment or sleep apnea treatment can also act as a preventive medicine for heart diseases, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Home Cleaning Can be Easy!

Domestic housework doesn't fit in the category for the most pleasant chores an urban housewife or man can do at home. Most homeowners and tenants surely find chores like household cleaning highly unlikely to be enjoyable and of course that’s absolutely normal. After all, that’s why we have professional cleaners companies, i.e. the fantastic cleaners and etc. If you would rather clean your home by yourself, here I am sharing some easy-to-follow tips and ideas on how to handle six common highly annoying household chores, that would otherwise require professional help.

Domestic Chore No 1 – Cleaning Bug Dirt Off Lamps

Why homeowners and tenants hate it:

When lamps turn hot, it gets sticky and bugs can't really escape such a trap. Bug dirt piles up on the surface and that makes it incredibly hard to clean, especially if you have to do an end of tenancy cleaning. Although the heaps of bugs are not dangerous for your health, they are the definition of an unpleasant domestic chore to scrub and take care of.

What to do:

  • Turn off lamps - mandatory!
  • Get a steady ladder (if your dirty lighting is too high).
  • Remove all lampshades.
  • Rinse with water and dry as good as possible.
  • Use a soft rug to wipe each light bulb.
  • If you feel you have to clean those via soaking, leave the lampshades in the water for a bit longer so grime can fall off.
  • If there is a lot of dirt, prepare a brush to fully clean.
  • Dry the freshly cleaned lampshades and carefully put them back.
  • Turn on electricity and voilà – no dimmed lights!

Household Chore No 2 – Emptying the Vacuum Cleaner Bag

Why people hate it:

Usually, when the dirt bag is half full, vacuums cleaner are not fully efficient and large pieces of dirt are unlikely to be sucked at all. The more dirt, the harder the appliance will work. If not emptied on time, the bag can cause for the motor to break down and thus you end up with an even bigger mess.

What to do:

  • Turn on the cleaner for a while, so all the dirt inside the appliance can settle in the bag.
  • Plug off. If you have a vacuum cleaner with a one-time bag, make a duct tape “bridge”, so all gathered filth stays “in”.
  • If you use standard bags, it's best to first go outside, on a terrace, balcony or simply in the yard. Otherwise, your property might get really, really messy.
  • Tip overall dirt in a paper bin and wash the bag thoroughly.
  • After cleaning is done with, make sure it dries off completely. Your best option, however, is to buy a water filter vacuum cleaner, because it gathers all garbage within a container.
  • Throw dirty water from the cleaner container straight into the toilet. The water filter will restrain all particles, so they won't go back into the room.

Dirty Chore No 3 – Cleaning the Paper Waste Basket

Why homeowners hate it:

Thrown out food and liquids often end up outside the trash bin, which is in reach of pets and children. Often mould and unpleasant smells arise from rotting food within the bin itself. From there on, mould spores get in the air and thus raise the risk for a number of allergies.

What to do:

  • Regularly clean and empty the basket. Avoid dirt building up.
  • Go out in the open and leave in in the air for a while. Sun and fresh air act as natural antibacterial agents.
  • Spray with a disinfectant or a DIY green cleaning solution inside the basket and leave it for a few minutes at least once a week.
  • Use rubber gloves and sturdy wipe and scrub off all dirt via brush.
  • Rinse with water on a regular basis. Better use a shower head (if it's movable), or a hose.

Housekeeping Chore No 4 – Cleaning the Ceiling Fan

Why homeowners hate it:

Fans are the perfect environment for dust mites, which dramatically raise allergy risks. By constantly spinning, ceiling fans spread out particles and mites all over the room.

What to do:

  • Stop the device and place newspapers or old pieces of cloth on the floor, right beneath it. You'd better cover an area twice as bigger than the fan's size.
  • Fill out a spray bottle with disinfectant and soak in an old soft rug. A shower cap will help you protect your head and hair from dust and dirt.
  • Step on a ladder, so that you make sure your head is above the fan. Use a damp pillow case or a shoe bag. Рun it all over one of the fan's wings, so that you clean it in a way all dirt stays within the case.
  • Use the old rug to clean what has remained of grime. If the ceiling is too high, use a micro fibre brush formed as a noose. It will serve you good to clean all unreachable surfaces.

Dirty Chore No 5: Cleaning the Bathroom

Why people hate it:

if not wiped on time, hardened soap foam (full of dirt) along with showers and bathroom walls, are very difficult to clean after. A humid environment is appropriate for mould development, especially on the grout. The deposits damage the structure, let alone tile colours.

What to do:

  • Spray the walls with a cleaning solution and scrub all over with a hard brush.
  • Pay special attention to the grout between the tiles.
  • Use a window cleaner for the glass surfaces. If you are a fan of green cleaning, use one of the many vinegar solutions.
  • You may not need to rinse it since the smell will disappear soon.

Domestic Job No 6 – Cleaning Under and Behind the Fridge

Why people hate it:

Fridge parts can accumulate a lot of dirt, which reduces work capacity and damages the whole system. Under the fridge floor, grime can mix with moisture and permanently stick to the floor.

What to do:

  • Pull out the kitchen appliance, turn it off and wait for a little while. The food won't go stale for the time you spend on cleaning it.
  • Use the vacuum cleaner's hose to gather all the dirt from the back of the appliance.
  • Wipe the walls with a damp cloth and a dishwasher solution.
  • Wipe the floor with a proper cleaning solution, minding the surface you have (stone and ceramic surfaces will suffer from an acidic solution).
  • Turn the appliance back on and put it back in place.
  • If it's possible, keep it turned off while you move it.

Of course, when it comes down to domestic cleaning, the list of chores can literally go on forever. The chores listed here are simple a handful of what the average urban housewife has to tackle on a regular basis. You could always go for a professional domestic cleaning, but it does not hurt to improve the way you handle domestic cleaning!

A catering business is run successfully with the help of efficient and necessary catering appliances. Different catering businesses have different demands depending upon the type of food they are serving. There is a wide range of commercial catering appliances available in the market designed specifically for different types of food products.

The variety of catering appliances is divided into two basic categories: catering fridges and catering freezers.

Common features of catering appliances:

There are certain things that are common in all types of catering appliances like keeping the food chilled and safe, insulated interior, durability and strong stainless steel exterior. All of the refrigeration appliances require a proper ventilation for efficiency of compressor. The compressor may be placed on the top of the appliance, at its sides or at the bottom. The temperature range of fridges is 3 F to 40 F, while the freezers have a temperature range of -10 F to 0 F.

Here are some of the different types of catering appliances to choose from.

Reach-in refrigerators and freezers:

These reach-in refrigerators and freezers are upright cold storage appliances. They are highly suitable if you are short of space because they have a small footing. They either have soli stainless steel doors or glass doors. The glass door ones can be used as display refrigerators. They are either equipped with full doors or half doors. They can have multiple sections and its storage capacity is calculated by cubic feet. You can make a rough estimate of the capacity from the number of doors of reach-in refrigerators. They are available with single, double or even triple doors. Their compressor is either top mount or bottom mount.

Walk-in refrigerators and freezers:

Walk-in refrigerators and freezers are for storing large amounts of cold storage space. There is a commercial shelving systems installed inside these refrigerators and freezers for storing food in an organized manner. The shelving is installed for optimal usage of storage space. They are excellent for storing boxed food items and they mostly have their own floors but it can also be installed on the existing floor.

Refrigerated prep tables:

Refrigerated prep tables are designed for cook line or the food preparation area. There are two main versions of these products: sandwich/ salad tables and pizza tables.

The prep table for pizza has a much larger cutting board as compared to the salad prep table. They are designed as worktops.

Undercounter refrigerators and freezers:

The functioning of undercounter appliances is just like the upright refrigerators and freezers. Their height is much less than the reach-in appliances. They can be put in to small spaces which makes it highly suitable for commercial kitchens and keep food products on as-needed basis.

Bar refrigeration:

These refrigerators are available in several different types like back bar coolers, plate chillers, keg coolers, wine coolers etc. they are mostly made up of stainless steel or black vinyl exterior.

Refrigerated merchandisers:

They Energy STAR appliances are much more energy efficient.

Home Cleaning Can be Easy!

Domestic housework doesn't fit in the category for the most pleasant chores an urban housewife or man can do at home. Most homeowners and tenants surely find chores like household cleaning highly unlikely to be enjoyable and of course that’s absolutely normal. After all, that’s why we have professional cleaners companies, i.e. the fantastic cleaners and etc. If you would rather clean your home by yourself, here I am sharing some easy-to-follow tips and ideas on how to handle six common highly annoying household chores, that would otherwise require professional help.

Domestic Chore No 1 – Cleaning Bug Dirt Off Lamps

Why homeowners and tenants hate it:

When lamps turn hot, it gets sticky and bugs can't really escape such a trap. Bug dirt piles up on the surface and that makes it incredibly hard to clean, especially if you have to do an end of tenancy cleaning. Although the heaps of bugs are not dangerous for your health, they are the definition of an unpleasant domestic chore to scrub and take care of.

What to do:

  • Turn off lamps - mandatory!
  • Get a steady ladder (if your dirty lighting is too high).
  • Remove all lampshades.
  • Rinse with water and dry as good as possible.
  • Use a soft rug to wipe each light bulb.
  • If you feel you have to clean those via soaking, leave the lampshades in the water for a bit longer so grime can fall off.
  • If there is a lot of dirt, prepare a brush to fully clean.
  • Dry the freshly cleaned lampshades and carefully put them back.
  • Turn on electricity and voilà – no dimmed lights!

Household Chore No 2 – Emptying the Vacuum Cleaner Bag

Why people hate it:

Usually, when the dirt bag is half full, vacuums cleaner are not fully efficient and large pieces of dirt are unlikely to be sucked at all. The more dirt, the harder the appliance will work. If not emptied on time, the bag can cause for the motor to break down and thus you end up with an even bigger mess.

What to do:

  • Turn on the cleaner for a while, so all the dirt inside the appliance can settle in the bag.
  • Plug off. If you have a vacuum cleaner with a one-time bag, make a duct tape “bridge”, so all gathered filth stays “in”.
  • If you use standard bags, it's best to first go outside, on a terrace, balcony or simply in the yard. Otherwise, your property might get really, really messy.
  • Tip overall dirt in a paper bin and wash the bag thoroughly.
  • After cleaning is done with, make sure it dries off completely. Your best option, however, is to buy a water filter vacuum cleaner, because it gathers all garbage within a container.
  • Throw dirty water from the cleaner container straight into the toilet. The water filter will restrain all particles, so they won't go back into the room.

Dirty Chore No 3 – Cleaning the Paper Waste Basket

Why homeowners hate it:

Thrown out food and liquids often end up outside the trash bin, which is in reach of pets and children. Often mould and unpleasant smells arise from rotting food within the bin itself. From there on, mould spores get in the air and thus raise the risk for a number of allergies.

What to do:

  • Regularly clean and empty the basket. Avoid dirt building up.
  • Go out in the open and leave in in the air for a while. Sun and fresh air act as natural antibacterial agents.
  • Spray with a disinfectant or a DIY green cleaning solution inside the basket and leave it for a few minutes at least once a week.
  • Use rubber gloves and sturdy wipe and scrub off all dirt via brush.
  • Rinse with water on a regular basis. Better use a shower head (if it's movable), or a hose.

Housekeeping Chore No 4 – Cleaning the Ceiling Fan

Why homeowners hate it:

Fans are the perfect environment for dust mites, which dramatically raise allergy risks. By constantly spinning, ceiling fans spread out particles and mites all over the room.

What to do:

  • Stop the device and place newspapers or old pieces of cloth on the floor, right beneath it. You'd better cover an area twice as bigger than the fan's size.
  • Fill out a spray bottle with disinfectant and soak in an old soft rug. A shower cap will help you protect your head and hair from dust and dirt.
  • Step on a ladder, so that you make sure your head is above the fan. Use a damp pillow case or a shoe bag. Рun it all over one of the fan's wings, so that you clean it in a way all dirt stays within the case.
  • Use the old rug to clean what has remained of grime. If the ceiling is too high, use a micro fibre brush formed as a noose. It will serve you good to clean all unreachable surfaces.

Dirty Chore No 5: Cleaning the Bathroom

Why people hate it:

if not wiped on time, hardened soap foam (full of dirt) along with showers and bathroom walls, are very difficult to clean after. A humid environment is appropriate for mould development, especially on the grout. The deposits damage the structure, let alone tile colours.

What to do:

  • Spray the walls with a cleaning solution and scrub all over with a hard brush.
  • Pay special attention to the grout between the tiles.
  • Use a window cleaner for the glass surfaces. If you are a fan of green cleaning, use one of the many vinegar solutions.
  • You may not need to rinse it since the smell will disappear soon.

Domestic Job No 6 – Cleaning Under and Behind the Fridge

Why people hate it:

Fridge parts can accumulate a lot of dirt, which reduces work capacity and damages the whole system. Under the fridge floor, grime can mix with moisture and permanently stick to the floor.

What to do:

  • Pull out the kitchen appliance, turn it off and wait for a little while. The food won't go stale for the time you spend on cleaning it.
  • Use the vacuum cleaner's hose to gather all the dirt from the back of the appliance.
  • Wipe the walls with a damp cloth and a dishwasher solution.
  • Wipe the floor with a proper cleaning solution, minding the surface you have (stone and ceramic surfaces will suffer from an acidic solution).
  • Turn the appliance back on and put it back in place.
  • If it's possible, keep it turned off while you move it.

Of course, when it comes down to domestic cleaning, the list of chores can literally go on forever. The chores listed here are simple a handful of what the average urban housewife has to tackle on a regular basis. You could always go for a professional domestic cleaning, but it does not hurt to improve the way you handle domestic cleaning!

Nail polish remover is a girl's best friend. It can be used not only for its main purpose but also for a bunch of other uses around your house. This product can be used for cleaning different items and surfaces. Here, I've prepared a short list of other uses of nail polish remover most of which emphasise on it's cleaning powers. The 100 percent acetone formula is of a better use when it comes to cleaning but most of the tips I've included in this article can be achieved with the non-acetone version too.

1. Keyboard Cleaner

First, make sure your computer is off because otherwise you may press something you didn't want to and make a full mess of your PC. Then, moisten a cotton cloth with nail polish remover and gently clean the surface of your keyboard. Don't do this very often because the acetone is extremely strong and you may erase the symbols from the buttons.

2. Floor Cleaner

You can clean every kind of floor surface with the help of nail polish remover and a paper towel except wood flooring.

3. Renovate Stained China

These irritating brown stain marks from tea and coffee can easily be cleaned with nail polish remover. Washing with soap and water afterwards is obligatory. Try not to destroy the decorations.

4. Shoe Cleaner

Moisten a paper towel or a cotton cloth and wipe your shoes. When you remove all scuffs and stains go through the whole surface with a damp cloth to get rid the leftover residue.

5. Superglue Fighter

DIY projects are my passion but the process of removing adhesive from my skin was a nightmare until I found out about the cleaning trick with moistened cloth with nail polish remover onto the sticky area of the skin. It really does miracles.

6. Renovate a Watch

If the cover of your watch is plastic, you could easily level and smooth its surface with a moistened cloth with nail polish remover. This is possible because of the strong dissolving properties of acetone. By doing so you will get rid of all cuts and dings on your watch. But you should be extremely gentle when scrubbing because you could make a hole in the plastic.

7. Permanent Marker Remover

Stubborn permanent marker ink stains on walls, hands and any other surface can be removed with a little help of a nail polish remover. You just need to use a solid amount of this magical liquid to drench a cotton towel and then scrub the stain away.

8. Razors Cleaner

Razors are not everlasting but why not keep them alive longer? Acetone is a well known disinfectant which can clean your razors. Dunk the razor in a cup with nail polish remover in it and leave it there for a few minutes then rinse well between the blades.

9. Paint Thinner

Oil-based and latex-based paint could be easily removed from any surface because acetone is a powerful solvent. You can also thin paint with these nail polish removers which are composed entirely of acetone but you must carefully check the ingredients in the label before using it to thin paint.

10. Clean Melted Plastic From Hot Surfaces

Nail polish remover makes oven cleaning much easier. Have you ever accidentally melted a plastic bag onto your oven or toaster or other hot metal surface? Well, I have … and it's extremely hard for cleaning. The easiest way to clean this mess up is with nail polish remover. But firs make sure the appliance is unplugged and wait patiently for it to cool down. After that clean the melted plastic with moistened cotton cloth with nail polish remover. Then dip a cloth into fresh water and wipe the whole surface again. Wait for it to dry before your next use.
