    So I was cleaning the counter, and there was an unlit match sitting on it. It had been used before, so there was the black at the top. Because, as stated, it had been lit before. I was wiping big stuff off the counter with a paper towel before using cleaner, and I accidentally moved my arm wrong and the match went behind our gas stove/oven. I’m concerned and not sure what to do?

  • Toilet makes flushing sound lasting approx 3 secs every so often, but does not actually flush.?

    Toilet makes flushing sound lasting approx 3 secs every so often, but does not actually flush.?

    Best answer: Your flapper is leaking, causing the water level in the tank to drop enough that the fill valve opens to let more water in. Replace the flapper. $5, five minutes. Whoops. Looking at the picture, it's the seal on the bottom of the flush valve - the white pipe/column thing that the flush lever is hooked to. ... show more

    Whoops. Looking at the picture, it's the seal on the bottom of the flush valve - the white pipe/column thing that the flush lever is hooked to. The rubber part at the bottom, that has worn out. Replace that.

  • What would you do?

Inform them or leave it alone and keep on receiving 10$ mowings.

    This is a repost since the last time I asked this it got no replies. I live in a high density housing area in a Victorian terraced house. There s virtually no gardens where I am, it s virtually all just concreted back yards. But I do have a small garden, it s about the size of two parking places, it s mostly lawn but has bushes round the edge. The problem is all the local cats come to use it as their toilet, & most of them don t bury their pooh. I don t mind the cats visiting my garden, but is there something I can do to stop them poohing in it? Maybe like spraying areas with lemon juice or vinegar - or anything else? Any advice welcomed. Thank you.

  • How long would you wait for someone?

    Say you were selling something online but locally, like through Craig's List or Facebook and it is past the time when someone said they would come.

    My room is downstairs along with my 17 year old sister. She has her own bathroom while I have to share with my parents but I can still use her bathroom. She keeps her bathroom a mess, it stinks(I can even smell it from my room), it’s messy, hasn’t been cleaned in a VERY VERY long time. It’s disgusting. She won’t clean it and I feel like I could get sick from it. My parents won’t do anything. They won’t clean it and they don’t tell her to clean it. Im worried for my health. I’m horrified of going in there, but sometimes I just can’t make it to the upstairs bathroom. What do I do?

    My heat is out and I'm using a space heater in my room. I never sleep with it on and only have it on when I'm home. Well it's been turning on and off every few minutes so i thought the heater was going out, so I switched it with the heater I have for my living room but it's still doing it which tells me the outlet itself is going in and out. The rest of my power is still fine and the switch on the breaker is still in the right position.. What causes this? I don't have money for an electrician hints why I'm using space heaters and not getting my furnace fixed. :(
